Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Green Bay Packers are an American football team based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. They are members of the North Division of the National Football Conference in the National Football League. The Packers are the current NFL champions. Green Bay is the second-oldest franchise in the NFL. The Packers are the last vestige of "small town teams" that were once common in the NFL during the 1920s and 1930s. Founded in 1919 by Earl "Curly" Lambeau and George Whitney Calhoun, the Green Bay Packers can trace their lineage to other semi-professional teams in Green Bay dating back to 1896. The 1934 Green Bay Packers season was their 14th season in the National Football League. The club posted a 7-6-0 record under coach Curly Lambeau. The Packers played their Milwaukee, Wisconsin home games at Wisconsin State Fair Park. During this season, a fan fell from the stands at old City Stadium and sued the Packers and won a $5,000 verdict. This caused the insurance company to go out of business and the Packers entered receivership. Green Bay business men raised $15,000 in new capital to prevent the team from folding.show more
