Packers Super Bowl rings on hold for now

The Green Bay Packers will have to wait for some of the usual spoils that come with a Super Bowl title.

Bill Pennington of the New York Times notes that the Packers haven’t ordered their Super Bowl rings yet.  The team wants input from the players, and can’t speak with them until the lockout is over.  Teams usually have a some sort of ring ceremony during the offseason as well, which will also be put off if there is no agreement.

The Packers’ trip to the White House has also been delayed indefinitely.

(The Steelers aren’t going either.  James Harrison was right!)

  1. I’m a Steelers fan, but I feel bad for the Packers and their fans.
    This whole labor situation is really taking away from what ought to be their time to enjoy what they accomplished – this story is just one example.

  2. There you go Packer fan! Your team wins, then a lockout, teachers will be laid off, your can’t order your Super Bowl rings and can’t go to White House! The only thing better will be that there will not be a full season and Packers must open up on the road!

  3. As a Packers fan, I am ok with it. It is what it is, sure some things might be delayed a bit but they won’t miss out on anything.

    I appreciate your sympathy though.

  4. Another Steeler fan here, the Packers won that game fair and square, and should be allowed to properly celebrate like everyone else did in the past.

    Sad to see the champions not getting their time in the spotlight. I for one salute the Green Bay Packers for being Superbowl Champs!

  5. Geez…. you would think this would be ONE thing both sides could agree to work together on.

  6. Oh the glory in seeing a pack title crapped on by the NFL….of course Obama don’t want to see some WI red necks..

  7. They’re waiting to see if the rings should read; “SuperBowl Champions 2010-2011 and 2011-2012” If they don’t play, nobody else can make that claim.

  8. OK Jimmy,

    I’m dying to hear how you will spin this so either Favre and/or the Vikings were somehow responsible for this.

    Troll.

  9. A bright side for us Packers fans is we can say we bookended the Super Bowl era. Won the first and the last, at least for now.

  10. Well, good thing they already got 12 of ’em! Not. Its a super bowl ring, they should be able to talk about that without breaking any rules.
    Seriously though, no championship team should miss out on their white house visit. If this stupid lockout eventually forces the season opener at lambeau vs. chicago to be cancelled then shame on both sides. The best part of being super bowl champion in todays NFL is opening at home on Thursday night.

  11. No biggie–Pack had to adjust on the fly this whole season. This is a minor annoyance. What really sux is that this affects their bid for a repeat, but again, just a minor annoyance.

    Perv, don;t you have some plans to be working on? 😉

  12. Might be a big deal if we would have never won a Super Bowl before. Like McCarthy said, this will help the Pack. Fly under the radar even after the Super Bowl victory is just a prelude to the beginning of the Dynasty.

  13. The Packers won the game in every way and deserve their perch as Super Bowl Champions.

    It is ridiculous the League and PA didn’t come together right away to agree that –in a show of good faith and good sportsmanship– the Packers would be free to enjoy the spoils of the win.

    It was a win that capped the 2010 season, in which there was still a labor agreement. Massive oversight on DeMaurice’s part, and a black eye to the owners.

  14. Some of the comments from the standard slack jaws would make you think the fans are getting the rings. I’m guessing the players appreciate the team waiting for their input.

    Celebrations are nice but winning the Super Bowl is the goal. Tip o’ the cap to the Steelers fans on here. You’re organization and fans make the NFL great.

  15. I honestly don’t really see any point of you Viking losers to even talk trash because last time I checked the Packers still won the Super Bowl and the Vikings finished had a losing season….again.

    Still world Champions and obviously your team is not.

    ————————————————–Win 6 then talk to me..other that that drink your Old Milwaukee, eat bratwurst, kiss your 3 toothed, full mustache, out of work, 250 lbs teacher wife! And remember Aaron Rodgers was on video hating on a cancer survivor! Nice hero in Green Bay!

    Why don’t you shut the hell up, jackass. Your making all the Steeler fans look bad right now with your childish trash talk.

    Your grammar could not be making the case any better for you being an idiot if you tried…

    “Obama don’t want to see some WI red necks”

    You see boys and girls, this is what happens when you drop out of high school…
