Have any of you heard anything about the design of the new rings? I've been watching the news, and haven't seen anything yet.
I'm excited to find out what the new ones will look like. It also put another "to do" thing on my "bucket list".
I have been able to try on all of the Packer SB rings up to now. I tried on Ray Nitschke's Super Bowl 1 ring in the early 1990's, Dave Robinson's SB 2 ring last year, and a SB 31 ring from one of the Packer board of directors.
NOW i have to figure out how I'm going to fulfill this new challenge.
Of course, i have to wait till they are made to do so! If any of you see any info on them, i'd appreciate you listing it on here!
THANKS!

I'm curious about the rings too. Donald Driver wants them to be as big and bold as possible. According to this, they're supposed to start designing them soon:

Dang it looks like the Super Bowl rings AND the White House visit are on hold now because of the lockout:

I would like to see them incorporate a "MOOD RING BACK GROUND" into the design.

That way as a fan, when one approaches them at a signing a quick glance at the ring could give one an idea whether one could get away with asking for a second autograph for a friend as well as a photo.

Red- Go ahead and ask for a second autograph and a photo.
Orange- Ask away for a second autograph.
White- Just shut up and hand them the photo.

It would also be helpful to the coaching staff. They could decide who gets more snaps on game day by standing at the door of the dressing room and greeting each player as they arrive on game day.

I heard the meeting to discuss the design with the players was suspended due to the lock out.

They are not allowed to talk to the players.

They can't have a ring ceremony either.
I want to go out like my Grandpa did. Peacefully in his sleep.

Not screaming in terror like his passengers.

What a load of crappy crap crap.
I was looking forward to seeing the new rings.
Figures that this would have to happen the year the Packers won the SB.
