AFRICAN-AMERICAN PACKERS UPSET ABOUT NO MILWAUKEE GAMES
Published October 14, 1994
Some of the Packers' African-American players were upset with the decision by the team to stop playing in Milwaukee. Packers DB Terrell Buckley: "Let's face it, here in Green Bay, there's not a black community. That's one thing I enjoyed about going to Milwaukee, seeing African Americans down there supporting games. That will be the sad part of leaving." Reggie White: "It's important to be visible in Milwaukee. ... I guess we're going to have to get more involved now. Maybe some way we can get inner-city kids to come up and see games. I think that's something we should consider" (Keith Lyons, WASHINGTON TIMES, 10/14).
