How did the Green Bay Packers get their name?

The Packers were founded in 1919 by Curley Lambeau and George Calhoun of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Lambeau asked his employer, the Indian Packing Company, for money to buy uniforms. They gave him $500 on the condition that the team be named after the company. Lambeau named the team the 'Packers'.

Who owns the Green Bay Packer team?

The public. Green bay are the only nfl team to not have an owner. All money earned goes back into the club.

---------------

The Packers are deeply rooted in the Wisconsin city where they were founded in 1919. They were named after a local meat processing plant, the Indian Packing Company, which paid for the first uniforms. Starting in the 1920s, the Green Bay Football Corp. made a series of public stock offerings. In 1950, 1,900 local residents each put up $25 a share to buy the team.


From the Packers' web site:


"Green Bay Packers, Inc., has been a publicly owned, non-profit corporation since Aug. 18, 1923, when original articles of incorporation were filed with Wisconsin's secretary of state.

A total of 4,750,937 shares is owned by 112,120 stockholders -- none of whom receives any dividend on the initial investment.

The corporation is governed by a board of directors and a seven-member executive committee.

One of the more remarkable business stories in American history, the team is kept viable by its shareholders -- its unselfish fans. Even more incredible, the Packers have survived during the current era, permeated by free agency and the NFL salary cap. And, thanks in large part to Brown County's passage of the 2000 Lambeau Field referendum, the club will remain solvent and highly competitive well into the future due to its redeveloped stadium.

Fans have come to the team's financial rescue on several occasions, including four previous stock sales: 1923, 1935, 1950 and 1997.

To protect against someone taking control of the team, the articles of incorporation prohibit any person from owning more than 200,000 shares."


From a proud shareholder from the '97 sale.

Who became head coach of the Green Bay Packers when Vince Lombardi retired?

Answer

Phil Bengtson

Following the third consecutive title in 1967, Lombardi turned over the head coaching duties to Phil Bengtson and one year later announced that he was leaving Green Bay to become coach/GM of the Washington Redskins. Bengtson coached the Packers from 1968-70, compiling a 20-21-1 record. He resigned in December, 1970.

Followed by: Dan Devine, one of the nation's three most successful college coaches, succeeded Bengtson as head coach and general manager in January 1971. After settling for a 4-8-2 record during his first year, Devine and the Packers appeared on the road to new heights when 1972 produced a 10-4 record and the team's first Central Division title since 1967. But the Packers' Super Bowl hopes dissolved in the second half of 1973 and they slipped to 5-7-2. They continued their recession in 1974, going 6-8, and Devine resigned.

What is the ending to the green mile?

The big black prisoner they so cared for is released secretly accompanied by guards because of his healing powers so he can heal the Warden's wife (I suspect she has cancer or a mental disorder of sorts) and does. Then he has to come back to prison and is electrocuted much to the digust of the Warden and guards who have grown to love him. They know he has special powers, is innocent of killing the two little white girls (was trying to heal them when he found them) and know that a special person's life was taken away from them. Near the end the black prisoner said words to the effect he was losing his healing powers because his spirit was weary and didn't fear death because he knew he was innocent. The prison guards knew things would never be the same again. Oh yes, the prison guard that was cruel ended up with a white jacket strapped around him. Nice ending as far as I was concerned. LOL Great movie!
