USA Today reports that despite the lockout, the Packers will get their Super Bowl rings on June 16th at Lambeau Field.
The lockout won’t keep the Green Bay Packers from receiving their Super Bowl rings. The NFL gave the team an exemption from the rules prohibiting contact with players during the lockout. And the Packers have scheduled a ceremony to distribute them on June 16 at Lambeau Field. “We’re looking forward to having an evening for the players, coaches and organization to recognize the victory in Super Bowl XLV,” Packers CEO Mark Murphy said. The team will gather for the first time since beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV. Teams have not been allowed to contact players about football matters during the lockout, except for a brief window on April 29 before an appeals court halted a lower-court ruling invalidating the work stoppage
