Morning roundup: Lambeau, Packers had messy divorce

Nov. 2, 2012
 

And you thought Brett Favre and the Packers went through a messy divorce four years ago?

That was nothing compared to how team founder Curly Lambeau and the Packers broke up in 1950. It was bitter and there was no love lost.

And when the dust settled, Lambeau had exited Green Bay and was named the coach and general manager of the Cardinals.

Pete Dougherty tells the fascinating tale of Lambeau's final rocky years in Green Bay in his Packers Preview column. (http://pck.rs/SAIMnP)
