Super Bowl Rings, White House Visit On Hold

Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson

Seems like a distant memory.

The NFL lockout has a lot of far-reaching consequences, but for the Green Bay Packers, it’s also put a hold on the traditional post-Super Bowl championship activities.

The Packers haven’t even ordered their Super Bowl rings because the team wants to consult the players before doing so. During the lockout, team personnel and coaches are forbidden from speaking to the players.

Similarly, the team hasn’t accepted an invitation from president Barack Obama to make the obligatory White House visit. The players, coaches and executives wouldn’t be able to appear together.

In the current state of affairs, it looks like it could be a while before either things happen.

    Bullshit. It will also likely put their episode of ‘America’s Game’ on hold as well…and I want to see THAT shit!

    According to Andrew Brandt, NFL Exec…the end does not look near. Unfortunately, it looks like the whole league want to play the role of old #4 and skip OTA’s, and most of training camp before sitting down!

    This sucks for the players…the team that won the Super Bowl should be exempt from all this labor BS in order to celebrate their victory properly! I’m very much looking forward to Charles Woodson meeting President Obama!
