Every year, the NFL comes up with a new hat to hand to draftees as they are paraded out on stage at the draft.
You know, because they need your $35 because you HAVE TO have that hat!
Seriously, I am not even fucking kidding. These shitbirds, the Green Bay Packers included, are selling these hats for $35 each.
Anyway, we bring this up because this year’s hat has a new twist.
Under the brim, there’s a skyline shot of the city the team calls home.
That’s correct. The Packers hat has a view of the mighty Green Bay skyline!
Now, what exactly would they show? St. Vincent Hospital used to a favorite of the national TV crews while broadcasting from Green Bay. Tallest building in town at a whopping 13 stories, after all!
But it’s not like St. Vincent’s is in a cluster of similarly tall buildings, so that won’t work. I mean, you almost have to just throw Lambeau Field itself on there, right?
Leo Frigo, baby!
Hopefully, whoever the Packers draft isn’t hanging out with whoever the Giants draft. I mean, based on those views, I know who I’d rather play for.
In concept this design may have been a good idea. In execution, it’s pretty idiotic.
But hey, still clearly worth $35 of your hard-earned money.
I think they should keep the hole idea under their hat.
Hat is ugly as sin.
I wonder how the Detroit and Cleveland hats will capture all the crippling depression onto such a small canvas.
The Lions Draft Hat is much better than the Packers draft hat. Yours is literally a bridge, and not like the Golden Gate Bridge, but a bridge that nobody knows about and won’t appeal to anybody outside of GB. And it might not even appeal to some people in GB. Detroit’s is of a historic American city, albeit a city in tough times, but nonetheless a city that has done a lot ore for this country than your co pasture of GB.
You’re right…Detroit is history, like Ancient Rome and Ancient Egypt…once great and prosperous and now destroyed by greed, stupid government, and the downfall of society
Is this on Detroit’s hat?
Yeah Detroit helped propel the automotive industry which gave mankind a burst of activity for, oh, let’s say a century and a half before it causes mankind to become an afterthought. Oh, and thanks also for those fucking dickheads Kid Rock and Ted Nugent.
I mean, outside of good football, cheese, and beer, what is Green Bay even good for? What do they do to help anybody out? They are so irrelevant in the country that all they have to look forward to is a football team and some cheese. It’s a hillbilly wasteland where nobody ever goes to because there is nothing to do or see, and your Drat Hat represents that very well.
Good pick of stereotypes. I guess you don’t know jack about Wisconsin cause we all must be hillbillies and small towns. NFL started in small towns all around the country. We just didn’t get an owner (There isn’t one) to move us to a big city. Fact is we have had enough talent come here and win more championships than anyone else. When was Detroit’s last Championship/Superbowl?
Don’t know “jack”; pun intended?
Nothing wrong with beer or cheese, one is the oldest mass-manufactured drink known to mankind, that not only enables one to have a great time but also kept people alive and healthy for centuries prior to the advent of potable water systems. Cheese is also equally as old, delicious, and more nutritious.
So your point is what you’d rather be known for bankruptcy, crime, illiteracy, and the implementation of a mass-manufacturing system for vehicles that were important for all of a couple centuries yet managed to severely cripple a 5 billion year old planet in that span? You can have it.
New York has skyscrapers on their hat, we have the water treatment plant on ours. Doesn’t matter cause we have just as many Super Bowls and even more championships.
They couldn’t do this one?
or this one?
Small town Wisconsin lol
Are you kidding? Fucking hats for the DRAFT? The NFL is becoming more craven every day… They play their fans for absolute suckers! Enjoy it from a distance folks, don’t give these bastards your money.
hey! the nfl wants to “give back” as they announced today that they are giving up their tax-exempt status [something to do with the embarassment and distraction caused by Goodell’s astronomical salary].
