It was a damp 32 degrees at kickoff, the self-service beer machines were up and running, and the fine people of Green Bay had themselves, as Hank Williams Jr. used to say, a Monday night party.

Thirty-six people were ejected from Lambeau Field during last night's win over the Falcons, and 11 more were arrested. Those are both the second-highest marks on the season, trailing only the 44 ejections at the Jets game in September and the 16 arrests when the Bears came to town last month.


How do we know those figures? The invaluable Doug Schneider, reporter for the Green Bay Press-Gazette, was once again monitoring the police scanner. He is a must-follow during Packers games; here are just some of the highlights of last night.

The takeaway, as always, is that there is no good reason to attend NFL games.
