Superior, Wisc. - The Packers Tailgate Tour made a stop at Superior High School today.

After a VIP reception in the cafeteria, these past and present players did a Q&A session with a gym ful of fans. The Tailgate also gave ticket holders a chance to get autographs, bid on silent auction items and play some games. All proceeds will go toward the new NBC Spartan Sports Complex. Packers linebacker Brad Jones says Packer fans are a special bunch.

"Ferocious is the word I would use. Ferocious fans, which I love. It's awesome. It's awesome to meet those people who literally bleed green and gold. It energizes me almost. It's good," says Jones.

"I've always said if the Packers had a 2-13 record, which would never happen. But if they were, and they had one game to play and it was at Lambeau, most stadiums would be pretty bare. Lambeau would be sold out. We're here to show our appreciation," says former quarterback Lynn Dickey.

Current players Mason Crosby and Jarrett Bush, CEO Mark Murphy and former players James Lofton and Paul Coffman also made the trip.
