So, since holders of Packers stock are team owners, do they share in the profits? Is there dividend distributions?

I am not a big football fan and probably wouldn't buy stock, but it seems great to me. The fans are loyal and want to see the Packers succeed, unlike the vikings new stadium that was shoved down all of the tax payers throat's whether they backed it or not. So either way you have to pay!

My fiance is a huge Packers fan. One thing I will say about Packers fans is they love their team. When I visit her home town all you see is GB logos EVERYWHERE. And her town is Racine, way down by Illinois. Perhaps I'm just jaded because I live in Phoenix and we have so many teams none have that kind of following.

I bought her a share for Christmas. She loves it. Is it worth anything monetarily? No, but having that certificate, with her name on it, framed on the wall is priceless to her.
