    Do you know what they were called, before they were called the Green Bay Packers?

    Acme Packers, after the packing company.

    And I saw it on an A&E crime show.

    I don't believe that's nearly as significant as how Green Bay got where they ARE, today.....​

    Actually, they were originally called the Packers, and the original company name was Indian Packing Company. Acme bought them out in 1921. Most people miss that because they don't track the history of the Packers back before they joined the AFPA, which became the NFL a year later.

    Don't mess with guys who started out with meat axes and sledgehammers in their hands?

    ;)

    Then again, the Packer standard uniform has been left almost completely untouched since designed by Lombardi back in the early 60's.

    We understand tradition better than Tevya.
