Do they cut you dividends or anything for your shares? I always wondered about these 'stocks' gaining any value. Can you sell them on the CheeseHead Exchange or some such way?

i've received numerous items for my shares.
free hall of fame entrance on stockholder day, stadium tours, including locker room, practice feild, private practices, lunches, and some autographed items (woodson signed football last year).

My daughter gets the share so i'm not sure of resale,i don't think anyone would want to?

Just wondered. I had read the team offered another batch for sale recently. Didn't know if these were legit investment shares or gimmick.

Detroit vs San Diego is one of the very interesting games this weekend. If the same SD that beat up the Ravens show up Detroit could have a tough day.

I hope Suh doesn't get too frustrated. He needs to cream Rivers about four times.

That would be 12 fantasy points for me in playoffs, I'm hopeful!

Defense is still dinged up. If the DB's can play well, and this is helped immensely by the play of the front 4 (duh), then maybe SD's offense can be held in check. The Megatron Show needs to continue, and Pedigrew has to keep his hands on the ball. Some sort of running game would be nice too, but my faith in Kevin Smith is slight at best.

Either way, Cyberdos told me about drinking Coquitos around the holidays, so I'll be settling in with a couple glasses of that and enjoying what should be a helluva game. Just wish it would snow that night, so the boy and I could play a little Christmas morning football with the nieces and nephews.

All the lions need to do is throw toward Toe Jammer. That slow, over rated, get caught ever fucking time holding DB is going to get hung out to dry by the Lion.

Other than that, he's a nice guy.....

Rivers and company will need to light it up on the score board. But in the long run, they are going to get Teeboned again, as it looks like the Bills are mailing it in..

they did offer up some leftovers from '97
as far as money making investments its a gimmick, its not like normal shares of stock. BUT its no ENRON stock either.


its like the early days (1920's) when they would pass the hat at games to keep the team going. this time they want to add more seats that will give essentially another give the revenue of another home game.

I'd say the team ownership model is working, we elect of BOD of WI business leaders and ex packers. The product on the field is great. I don't have to worry about them moving in the middle of the night.

It was KICK FUCKING ASS today at Ford Field and an early Christmas Present (Free Buddy's Pizza along with a Free Hair Cut @ Lady Jane's for those in attendance) for the Motor City watching the Lions decimate the Chargers 38 to 10 and in the process lock in their 1st Playoff game since 1999

The way they have Won these last three games and if they continue to improve, they could just maybe Win a Playoff game or two

An EXCELLENT season regardless !

I wondered when this would get a bump. Did you miss the last game or do we only talk Lions when they do something right?
