    come on bud. operated as a NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION means there are no profits. in a FOR-PROFIT organization, earnings are distributed to owners who may be shareholders (corporations), partners (partnerships), sole proprietors, etc.

    Earnings in a non-profit organization are used to either a) reinvest in the organization for growth purposes or b) provide support for the cause in which the organization was created. In this case (see above) the Green Bay Packers Foundation.

    The person that you want to believe is swimming in a big pool of cash that we all paid him/her doesn't exist.

    Really - I'm going, but I really must ask this one last question:

    Why does it bother you that we're able to own legitimate shares of our team? Why are you twisting yourself into a pretzel to argue that we don't, when in fact, we do?

    What difference does it make to you that we have no Mara, or Kraft, or Jones operating our franchise?

    Really puzzles me why people argue this. If you don't want any Packer stock, that's cool - but what's the point in evangelizing to owners that they aren't really owners at all?

    Odd.

    Why do you care? Are we complaining? Don't you think we knew that going in? It doesn't matter to us....

    Seems to me if it were not "legitimate" stock the sale would not have required SEC -- SECURITIES Exchange Commission -- approval, but I'm not sure.

    I don't think it's a joke. I'm an owner. In fact, so are my mom, dad, and brother. I am a proud supporter of my team. MY team. We can say that because we foot the bill. It's ownership for sure. But a very different kind of ownership. I think that's the biggest misconception; that other fans think that WE think it's the same kind of ownership as Art Shell or Mara or whatever, when in fact we not only know its different, but we embrace that it's different. The Green Bay Packers are truly one of a kind. At a time when MN tax payers refuse to open their wallets to keep their team from packing up and leaving, Packer fans line up in the hundred thousands to gladly hand over hundreds to support their team and their stadium.

    meyerbudNYG,
    It will be a great game, but we must continue to agree to disagree. Eli just isn't cool under pressure and thats what he's going to have with Matthews and Woodson. I am guessing that the GMen will turn the ball over 3 times with all of them turning into points.
    P.S. Thanks for posting here, you seem like a good ****.

    Ok..Im not trying to ba a dick...I want you to explain it to me then...to me its kind of like buying stock in something...like if bought stock in snapple, and I put in 100$....Does that make me a co-owner of snapple...I mean if the stock goes up, I see money...but the word "owner" to me means you have input on day to day operations....and that does not seem to be the case.

    Eli is one of the best in the game under pressure..all types too...big game pressure..he is great...and actual in game pressure he thrives as well..when teams blitz him too often he makes them pay..just watch the cowboys games if need proof...ill give you more if u need it.
