Privacy, Please

It was recently announced that the Packers' championship ring ceremony scheduled for Thursday, June 16, at the Lambeau Field Atrium will be a private affair, not open to the public. The 1997 ring ceremony, held at the Oneida Golf and Country Club, was also limited to the team.

This has understandably frustrated many Packers fans, but I don't have a problem with this decision.

This may be very easy for me to say, since I don't live close enough to even consider attending, but there has already been a public celebration, and there will undoubtedly be more. For this one night, the men and women of the organization deserve some time to celebrate their accomplishment outside of the public eye.
