    A friend insists it's true. A google serach pretty much comes up empty, except for a comment on this youtube video about Brockington.

    I am Green Bay born and rasied Packer fan of over 60 years. I have never heard a nickname like that to discribe John Brockington , while he played in Green Bay.

    The Crazed Camel

    Although not from GB I am a lifelong Packer Fan and remember #42 very well, including the trade with Denver to jump the Bears and get him. Anyway back to your question, early in Brockington's career he and McArthur Lane were tearing up the Central Division and in an article descibing the two running backs one of the national sports journalists commented on Brockington and his running style and he dubbed it "Like a crazed camel" the rest of the quote is lost to me but I can still see it in print! I hope this helps
