"Curly Lambeau resigned as Green Bay Packer head coach because he was unable to get financial control of the franchise. Former head coach Lisle Blackbourn fell from favor with the team's executive committee, in part, because he told a respected member of the committee in 1957 that it was none of the committee's business how Blackbourn used his players. Vince Lombardi was vehemently opposed to the expansion of Lambeau Field and often resented the fact that he was unable to vote on Packer corporate matters. Quarter¬back Lamar McHan was traded after McHan directed an ethnic slur at Lombardi. Dan Devine offended executive committee members the first time he came to Green Bay by virtually ignoring them during a reception at team President Dominic Olejniczak's house. The news media misinterpreted the Packer board of directors decision to remove Bart Starr as general manager after the 1980 season. And in 1983, the Packers made the announcement that Lambeau Field would be given a facelift of sorts, which might include the addition of more seats, special boxes, expanded press box facilities, and, the most important renovation of all, a plastic dome." "These are some of the more intriguing revelations in this fascinating account of America's favorite football team, the Green Bay Packers." - - Tony Walter, Green Bay Press-Gazette; ". . . it's a real pistol... a smoking pistol, if you will." - - Art Daley, The Packer Report; "Highly informative, sometimes humorous, often intriguing... recommended for Packer fans in particular and football fans in general." - - Jack Baker, WTMJ Radio, Milwaukee
