We, the undersigned, the "Green Bay Packers Owners," (henceforth, GBPO) attest to the following: "Green Bay Packers, Inc., has been a publicly owned, nonprofit corporation since Aug. 18, 1923, when original articles of incorporation were filed with Wisconsin’s secretary of state." © On Monday, September 24th, 2012, an incident occurred in the closing moments of Monday Night Football, under the supervision of replacement referees, and not the NFLRA, henceforth referred to as the "Maculate Interception," which we are labeling "egregious," until such time we find a stronger word. "One official signaled interception. The other signaled a touchdown. The touchdown stood, and the Seahawks beat the Packers 14-12. Cue bedlam." © Bedlam bed·lam  noun: a scene or state of wild uproar and confusion. Synonyms: disorder, tumult, chaos, clamor, turmoil, commotion, pandemonium. The GBPO states, "Bedlam? You betcha!" Furthermore, the "Maculate Interception," occurred after Golden Tate clearly shoved Sam Shields in the back; pass interference. Subsequently, Tate, while clearly being the second receiver during the "simultaneous possession," with only one hand on the ball, was awarded a touchdown by one replacement referee while the other signaled a clock stoppage which would indicate a touchback; an interception. We, the GBPO, collectively state, that the "Maculate Interception" is the worst we have ever seen in any sport; any team. Furthermore, furthermore, Shields had already been the victim once that night of a horrendous botched call when he was assessed a 32-yard penalty after being molested unmercifully by Sidney Rice. Furthermore, furthermore, furthermore, the officials left the field, forgetting that an extra point had to be attempted. Seriously??? As the GBPO, we are collectively, and as one, the "owner" of the team, and demand that our voice is heard. We demand the following: 1) President & Chief Executive Officer, Mark Murphy, on behalf of the GBPO, demand that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell meet every written demand that the NFLRA has made as of Monday, September 24th, by 8:29 EST.* 2) The NFLRA return to the NFL regular season as soon as these demands are met. PLEASE! 3) The Green Bay Packers can afford the NFLRA demands now, and in the future. We aim to collect 36,215 signatures, which would represent approximately 10% of the current shareholders of the Green Bay Packers; a significant scientific representation of the owners. *This is crucial, because after this game, let's face it, the NFLRA could demand any number of additional conditions, post-"Maculate Interception."
