Play The Draft With Us – NFL Draft Contest

Is the boredom of no football on Sundays and endless conjecture about free agents, pro days, and draft picks getting on your nerves? Is the empty hole that is filled with fantasy football normally slowly eating away at your soul? Well my friend, this isn’t gonna help any of that, but the All Green Bay Packers staff would like to invite you to play Play The Draft instead!

For those of you that don’t know, every year we host a fantasy football league where we pit the writers, including our dear leader Jersey Al, with readers of the website.  We’re hoping to do something similar during the offseason with Play The Draft and myself, Jersey Al, Adam and Cory will take part. (It’s FREE to play)

Essentially the game works somewhat like stock trading (which might become real soon) but instead of stocks of companies you trade stocks of rookies looking to be drafted.  Everyone who plays will be given a same amount of money and then allowed to buy stocks of players they think will be drafted well and after the draft, each player will be “sold” at a value based on their draft selection.  For instance, last year I bought EJ Manuel stock at a middle second round value and when Manuel was drafted in the middle of the first, I made a huge profit.  You can also buy and sell players at any time, so again for instance I bought Geno Smith stock early on and sold off his stock for a profit before his reputation went down the tanks.  The value of a player’s stock will rise and fall based on real world news; so if a player has a great pro day his stock will rise or if he gets arrested, his value will fall (though he might become good value if it doesn’t effect his draft status).

Anyways, Play The Draft is a rather new game with last year being its first season, so at the end of the year we’d like to get some feedback from all the participants about whether or not the game was worth playing and whether we should set up a league next year.

There are 10 open spots for you readers. If you’d like to play with us, please comment below and be sure to enter your email address in the appropriate field.

Meet Gilbert Brown at Throwback Weekend III!

Gilbert Brown Autographed Items PACKERS MEMORABILIA
Are you going to be in Green Bay for the game this weekend? Want to participate in what is becoming one of the largest and most prominent annual gatherings of Packers Fans?

If so, then make sure you check out Throwback Weekend III this weekend at the Green Bay Distillery.   To give you a little bit of a background, according to their website Throwback Weekend all started as one fan, Colleen Brenton of Pocket Doppler, planning to attend a game in Green Bay during the 2011 season.   What followed was incredible. More and more people were selecting the same game as their “Lambeau visit” for the year and Throwback Weekend was born.

A simple, small gathering blew up into a two-day event.  A tweet-up on Saturday followed by a tailgate on Sunday before the game were organized by Kyle Cousineau and a legend was born.  The name “Throwback Weekend” was coined by CheesheadTV’s Brian Carriveau who linked together the gathering along with the throwback uniforms the Packers wore against the Rams during the game.

Last year, Throwback Weekend II was moved to the Green Bay Distillery for both days to accommodate the larger crowds and that is where this year’s event will be held as well.

Sound like fun? It definitely is, and I speak as an attendee of (soon to be) all three Throwback Weekends.

If you’re not convinced, “The Grave Digger” and Super Bowl XXXI champion Gilbert Brown will be in attendance at the “tweet-up” Saturday night courtesy of Mayfield Sports Marketing where autographed items will be available for purchase. There will also be signed items from Leroy Butler, Eddie Lacy, Nick Perry, Jerron McMillian and more!

Don’t let the name “tweet-up” fool you.  You’re still invited even if you avoid Twitter with a ten-foot pole.  It’s a party to celebrate what brings all of us together regardless of age, race, gender or political views: the Green Bay Packers.

As I said, I’ll be there too.  Feel free to introduce yourself and if you have any “feedback” on ALLGBP.com, feel free to take it out on me.  Jersey Al is sending me a representative/scapegoat/whipping boy.

See you in Green Bay this weekend!

NOTE: There will be an opportunity for Throwback Weekend attendees to win an Eddie Lacy autographed helmet. One winner chosen at random – Good Luck!

Packers running back Eddie Lacy enjoyed his first career 100-yard rushing day against the Baltimore Ravens.
