There are many reasons why I hate Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy. Probably too many to count.
Primary among them are his past attempts to squash our freedom of speech, but that’s a story that will only be told in dark barrooms. There’s also his status quo M.O.
So yeah, that photo made me chuckle. It was taken to highlight some partnership between the Packers and Austin Straubel Airport, which somehow has the “International” designation. What do they have remaining there, two airlines? Does one of them have a route to Toronto once a week? I bet it stops in Detroit first…
The image behind Murphy and the angle at which the photo was taken makes it look like that big, giant football is about to nail old Ginger Gap Tooth. And boy, would something like that be a delightful sight!
Two roadblocks to another SB…..Howdy Doody douchebag Murphy and his girlfriend, the gay caballero, one Ted “the socially awkward” Thompson. Never happen while these two assholes are running things. Not easy to only win one SB with AR. Not since the Ray Rhodes firing have I waited in vein for the TT firing news flash. Who in the fuck is going to shit can Murphy before it’s too late???
It’s easy for people to think that Mark Murphy is just a greedy hack, because let’s be honest, that’s what people usually think whenever they see some one who is filthy rich. But consider how easy it would be for Green Bay to lose the Packers. As years go by, large cities will demand more and more sports arena’s and stadiums, which means someone could easily try to either snatch the Packers, or a new Packers owner could be willing to move them. Murphy is trying to create a town that is far more accessible to outsiders, and create a larger tourist destination. Long term, this could greatly benefit the Packers, or at least keep them in Green Bay a while longer. Gotta keep up with the demand of larger populations by creating a larger population. Murphy also refused offers from sponsors to rename Lambeau Field. Say what you will, but he seems like a genuine fan of the team to me.
Unless you know a way to take away this, there is no chance the Packers will be snatched:
All shareholders receive are [b]voting rights[/b], an invitation to the corporation’s annual meeting, and an opportunity to purchase exclusive shareholder-only merchandise. Shares of stock cannot be resold, except back to the team for a fraction of the original price.
As of November 1,2011, there were apporoximately 4,750,000 shares outstanding
approximately 112,000 shareholders held the Outstanding Shares. Two shareholders each owned the maximum 200,000 Outstanding Shares. 250,000 shares were sold with the latest offering making a total of 5 million.
So 95% of the voting rights are with the original holders which of 70 % needs to vote in favor for any change in the rules.
Btw the angle suggest it would nail him right there where Teddy bipolar bear likely does.
