At 10-1-1, Green Bay looked primed for their fourth straight title. However, the Packers would lose their final two games on the road against the Portsmouth Spartans and Chicago Bears, who would face each other in a playoff game for the Championship despite having fewer wins then the Packers, thanks to a number of ties that didn't count in the standings. 
Late in the 1932 season, it looked as if the Green Bay Packers were headed for their fourth straight NFL championship. They had an 10-1-1 record while their closest pursuers, the Chicago Bears and Portsmouth Spartans, had only nine victories between them. But the Bears and Spartans had just one loss apiece, to go with a whole bunch of ties. On December 4, the Packers played their sixth straight game on the road, at Portsmouth. The Spartans had a 5-1-4 record going into the game. In Chicago, the Bears (4-1-6) were hosting the Giants, who had handed the Packers their only loss in New York three weeks earlier. Under today's method of figuring the standings, the Packers would have had the championship wrapped up. A tie now counts as a half-loss, half-win. But in 1932 a tie simply didn't count; it was as if the game had never been played. After Portsmouth beat Green Bay, 19-0, and the Bears beat the Giants, 6-0, the Packers were suddenly out of the running. Portsmouth's season was over, but the Packers had one game left, against the Bears in Chicago. If the Packers won that game, the Spartans would be the new champions. If the Bears won, they'd be tied with Portsmouth for first place. And that's what happened. The Bears took a 9-0 victory on a snowy field with the temperature around zero, and went on to beat the Spartans, 9-0, in a playoff. Under today's method, the final standings would have looked like this:

DECEMBER 12 (Green Bay) - The Green Bay Packers professional football team has accepted an invitation to play against an all-star Pacific coach football squad in the annual Knights of Columbus charity game at Kezar Stadium, San Francisco, Sunday January 22, it was announced here today by Coach E.L. Lambeau. Negotiations were completed Monday morning, the coach said. K. of C. representatives announced the Packers were chosen over Portsmouth and the Chicago Bears, who nosed out the Green Bay team for the National league title this year, because of their great four year record. The Packers won the league title in 1929, '30, '31 and just missed this year, winning 10 games, losing three and tying one. The four year record is 46 games won, eight lost and three ties. The Packers will play two games in Honolulu before the San Francisco battle, meeting the University of Hawaii eleven on Christmas Day and the Honolulu Townies, a semi-professional team, on New Years' Day. The players leave Green Bay Tuesday for Los Angeles and will sail Friday.
DECEMBER 13 (Green Bay) - Seventeen members of the Green Bay Packers football club, including Coach Curly Lambeau, left here Tuesday morning on a 5,000-mile jaunt to Honolulu, where they will play two games, the first on Christmas Day and the second on New Year's Day. Before it returned to Green Bay about February 6, the Packer team will play two more games, the principal one at San Francisco on January 22, when it meets an all star Pacific coast team coached by Ernie Nevers, assistant football coach at Stanford University and former captain and coach of the Chicago Cardinals. On January 29, the Bays will play a picked coast aggregation at Los Angeles. Several other games also may be arranged. Because of their excellent record over a four-year period, the Packers were selected to play in the Knights of Columbus charity game in San Francisco January 22. The trip to Honolulu was arranged after the invitation to play on the west coast was received. The Packer squad will sail Friday December 16 about 10 o'clock from San Pedro, Cal., aboard the S.S. Mariposa of the Matson Navigation line. Those making the trip are Art Bultman, Green Bay, and Nate Barrager, Los Angeles, centers; Rudy Comstock, Canton, Ohio; Joseph Zeller, Bloomington, Ind., and August Michalske, Green Bay, guards; Claude Perry, Honey Springs, Ala., and Jug Earpe, Green Bay, tackles; Lester Peterson, Tyler, Tex., Al Rose, Waco, Tex., Lavvie Dilweg, Green Bay, and Milton Gantenbein, La Crosse, ends; Roger Grove, Lansing, Mich., Clark Hinkle, Cadiz, Ohio; Johnny Blood, Minneapolis; Wuert Englemann, Pierre, S.D., Arnold Herber and Hank Bruder, both of Green Bay, halfbacks.
SS Mariposa was a luxury ocean liner launched in 1931; one of four ships in the Matson Lines "White Fleet" which included SS Monterey, SS Malolo and SS Lurline. It was later renamed the SS Homeric. In 1973, a major fire destroyed much of her galley and restaurant and she was scrapped in Taiwan in 1974.
DECEMBER 14 (Chicago) - After the Portsmouth Spartans and the Chicago Bears play off their tie for the National Professional Football championship at Wrigley Field Sunday, they will carry their act to Cincinnati for a charity game Christmas Day. George Halas, owner of the Bears, today announced the Cincinnati date, which will be played for the benefit of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and said negotiations were underway for another charity game at Nashville, Tenn. Red Grange will play with the Bears, instead of accompanying the Green Bay Packers to the west coast and Honolulu, as had been reported.
DECEMBER 16 (New York) - Clark Hinkle, former Bucknell star, made the prize punt of the NFL season of 1932, according to statistics compiled Friday. Hinkle, a member of the Green Bay Packers, got off a 77-yard kick against the Chicago Bears on September 25. All kicks were measured from the line of scrimmage, so Hinkle actually kicked about 90 yards. Dick Nesbitt of the Bears was runner-up. He had a 75-yarder against Stapleton October 2.
DECEMBER 17 (Los Angeles) - The Green Bay Packers football team sailed Friday for Honolulu for a series of football games in the Hawaiian islands. Returning late in January the Packers will play one or more games in the San Francisco Bay region and possibly two or three games with former Southern Californian University stars here.
DECEMBER 18 (Columbus, OH) - Green Bay, Chicago Bears and Portsmouth, the three leading teams in the NFL grabbed the lion's share of places on the
all-professional eleven selected for the Associated
Press by seven of the eight coaches in the league.
On the first team, three places each went to Green
Bay and the Bears. Portsmouth was awarded two
and the remaining positions were filled by New York,
Chicago Cardinals and Boston. The Bears and
Portsmouth Sunday decide the national professional
football championship in a playoff game at the
Chicago Stadium. They tied with six victories and
one defeat each in the regular season. Green Bay
lost three games and won 10. Being selected on a
nationwide team is no new experience for two of the
first team players, Earl Clark of Portsmouth and
Bronko Nagurski of the Bears. The former was
named quarterback on the Associated Press all-
American team in 1928 when a member of the
Colorado College eleven. Nagurski was similarily
honored the following season at Minnesota where he
played tackle. Harold (Red) Grange, who galloped to
all-American fame in 1925 at the University of
Illinois was relegated to the second team. Three
more all-Americans of college years, Christian Cagle,
Army, 1928; Benny Friedman, Michigan, 1926, and
Kenneth Strong, New York University, 1928, were
given honorable mention. Clark was the only
unanimous choise. Ray Flaherty, New York's great
pass catcher, and Luke Johnsos of the Chicago
Bears won the end positions and Cal Hubbard, 225
pound boy from Green Bay and Glen Edwards of
Boston the tackles. Two Chicago players, Jules
Carlson of the Bears and Walter Kiesling of the
Cardinals, were named as guards. Nate Barrager
of Green Bay, former Southern California star, was
selected for the snapperback job. In the backfield,
Clark at quarterback is flanked by Arnold (Flash)
Herber of Green Bay and Roy (Father) Lumpkin of
Portsmouth, regarded as one of the greatest
blocking halfbacks in the league. Lumpkin gained
fame at Georgia Tech while Herber is an alumnus of St. Regis. Nagurski at fullback rounds out the first eleven players.
DECEMBER 22 (Milwaukee Journal) - The rumor factory is busy. Dutch Clark will play with the Green Bay Packers next season. So will Red Grange. The Chicago Bears want Lavvie Dilweg and will trade a couple of linemen for him. New York and Brooklyn both want Johnny Blood. And so on, and so on. Down in Hawaii the Packers today await the first game of their island exhibition tour. They will meet the University of Hawaii Christmas Day. But if the crystal doesn't like it will be one of the last together as a great team. The man in the white hat, so they say, is about to walk among the Bays, and when another season rolls around he will have a number of different faces on the field. Something has to be done. No doubt most of the rumors haven't any root. If they did they wouldn't be rumors. But the fact also remains that the Packers must, and intend to do something about their battlefront for the 1933 campaign. The collapse at Portsmouth three weeks ago brought home again to Curly Lambeau, the coach, and officials of the club that the team must be rebuilt for the next season. And they intend to rebuild it. Clark, a unanimous choice for a place on the all-American backfield again, is understood to be dissatisfied at Portsmouth. He wants a change. He is still under contract, but with all the financial troubles the Spartans have had they may be willing to talk business. Green Bay wants him. That is one rumor. Red Grange, so they say, has outlived his attraction in Chicago. He is still a great ball player, so great that when the people in San Francisco dickered with the Packers for a charity game January 22 they asked that he be included in the lineup. But the Bears, it is understood, feel differently. If they can get what they want for him, especially Lavvie Dilweg, they will swap him and probably throw in a lineman to boot. Johnny Blood is the attractive bait the Packers have put on the hook in their hunt for linemen. At least the gossips say so. A year ago the Vagabond led the National league in scoring. This season he was far down the list. But he is still the greatest pass receiver in the league. Maybe some club with an abundance of good linemen may need backs of Blood's caliber. That would be a swap in a minute. And so on. The air in the valley is filled with rumors about what the Packers intend to do for 1933. There is little question that something must be done. But what? The trip to Hawaii, incidentally, spoiled some of the club's plans to line up new talent. Lambeau in the last few years has always attended the East-West games on the coast New Years Day. He has got a line on men. This year he can't do that. The rebuilding of the club will have to wait until he returns in February. But something will be done. The Packers have settled on that. It may take some time, but new blood will be on the field when the team trots out in 1933. Meanwhile the valley fans have all sorts of trades figured out. One for one, two for two. They are just as bad as baseball fans. Which is a good sign for professional football.  
DECEMBER 17 (Los Angeles) - The Green Bay Packers football team sailed Friday for Honolulu for a series of football games in the Hawaiian islands. Returning late in January the Packers will play one or more games in the San Francisco Bay region and possibly two or three games with former Southern Californian University stars here.
DECEMBER 24 (Honolulu) - To the tune of strumming ukeleles and accompanied by a blast of newspaper publicity, the Green Bay Packers left the S.S. Mariposa here Thursday, preparatory to playing their two games of football here Monday December 26 and Monday January 2. The games will be played one day later than originally planned, to coincide with the Honolulu observance of Christmas and New Year's here. Within a hour after they left the ship, the former national champions put their days of idleness on the ocean strictly behind them and jogged out upon a convenient field for a stiff practice. There is no question about it' the Packers are in a serious frame of mind. They ran through signals with all their old pep, apparently much rested by the sea trip from San Pedro. As a matter of fact, the team received the run of the ship, and there was considerable "tux work" from the time the big boat left the mainland until it docked here at the Hawaiian capital city. The passage was smooth, and Hank Bruder now is the only Packers still on the sick list. The weather is unbelievable. The temperature registers 70, and after today's workout, the squad went for a swim off Waikiki beach. They then returned to the Hotel Moana, where the best of accommodations were obtained. The Packers' arrival was the signal for a spasm of publicity, four columns on the front page of the city's leading newspaper telling of the invasion. Interest is running very high and apparently the competition will be strong. Honolulu's hospitality is unexcelled. Everyone appears gay, and leis are numerous. The Hawaiian football players will play the game without wearing shoes, but not the Packers. There is considerable talk here of making the Packer trip to Honolulu an annual event, as Hawaiian residents are keyed up over the chance to see their first big football game. Alumni of the University of Hawaii, whom the Packers face Monday, are met on all sides, and all present in droves for each daily workout, scheduled at 4 o'clock in the afternoon.
DECEMBER 24 (Green Bay) - The Green Bay Packers will play the University of Hawaii football team at Honolulu Monday. An account of the game will be relayed from Honolulu to Green Bay via San Francisco and will be broadcast over radio station WHBY, Green Bay. The game will start at 8:30 p.m. Central standard time.
DECEMBER 25 (Honolulu) - The first regular game between a college football team and a professional team, about the outcome of which arguments have raged for years, will be played here Monday afternoon between the Green Bay Packers, three time champions of the National Professional league and third place winners in this year's race, and the University of Hawaii. The game will start at 2 o'clock, which is about 8 o'clock Milwaukee and Green Bay time. The Packers arrived here early Thursday morning after their long voyage from Los Angeles and immediately went out to regain their land legs. The men appeared in excellent shape. They worked out every day at one of the athletic fields near their hotel. Considerable interest has been aroused by the game which is to be the first between a pro eleven and a college team in the history of the sport. The nearest approach to it was the contest between the New York Giants and an all-star Notre Dame team, handled by the late Knute Rockne, in New York two years ago. The Giants walloped the all-stars. It wasn't a contest. Honolulu, however, feels differently about the outcome of this game. The Hawaiian boys have been in full training since the regular season closed and they feel they can take the invaders. Nor has their attitude been changed by the surprising non-chalance which the Packers have shown. The visitors have done all their training in a matter of fact way. Much of the Packers' time so far has been occupied by sightseeing. Whatever may happen on the football field Monday, they must surely say they were welcomed here with open arms. They had hardly landed when the sightseeing began. Between 20,000 and 25,000 fans are expected to see the game. Not only in Honolulu, but in other parts of the island, interest has been aroused in football as seldom before. The Packers will remain here for another week and on Sunday January 8 will play an all-star island lineup in a charity game. The team will leave Hawaii two days later and engage in two exhibition games in Californian January 22 and 29 before returning home to Green Bay.
DECEMBER 27 (Honolulu) - The Green Bay Packers, professional football team, viewed the beauties of Oahu Island through visitor's eyes today having passed their way to a 19-13 victory over Kamehameha alumni in yesterday's holiday game. A pass from Herber to Englemann in the second period gave the visitors their first touchdown a short time after Kamehameha had scored on a 55-yard pass. Dilweg intercepted a Kamehameha pass in the third period for another touchdown while Herber shot a ball to Rose for the Packers' third score in the final quarter. Kamehameha's second score came on a series of three passes in the final three minutes of the game which advanced the ball from the Hawaiian 20-yard line across the Packers' goal. The Hawaiian team, composed of representatives from virtually every race of the islands, was outweighed 30 pounds to the man. The Honolulu team, composed of virtually all the diverse races of the islands, slipped through the heavy Packer line with a spanking attack that sparkled into the final minutes of the game. Cold wind which swept down off the Oahu mountains, where it was raising, made excellent football weather of a day that otherwise would have been warm. Led by the 150 pound, part Hawaiian, high school quarterback Danny Wise, the local team scored on the first play tried. They held the Packers for downs on the Kamehameha 20 yard line when the game was three minutes old. Then Wise whizzed a 55-yard pass that Kerry took on the dead run for a touchdown. Wise kicked the goal. Unable to thrust through the light Kamehameha line, which dug under or slipped past to swarm over the ball carriers, the Packers took to the air in the second period. Louis Kahanomoku, younger brother of Hawaii's famous 
swimmer, Duke Kahanomoku, was one of the main obstacles in the way of the Packer line. Between halves, Henry Hughes, Oregon University football star of several years ago, edified the crowd by placekicking 60 and 70 yards barefooted.
DECEMBER 28 (Sheboygan Press) - After nine years of professional competition, Verne Lewellen of the Green Bay Packers announces his retirement. There is still a lot of good football in that 34-year old framce, but Verne's best days are over, so he is quitting for good. Lewellen must be written down among the immortals of football. For nine years he did practically all the kicking for the Packers. It was Lewellen who carried the ball over for touchdowns when the last few yards were needed. He ran back punts, called signals, ran interference - he could do all things well. There was a game with the Chicago Cardinals in 1929 when Lewellen punted out of bounds beyond the Cardinal 10-yard line eight times. And he was one of the finest ball carriers on cutback plays I have seen. He was adept at pivoting and reversing the field. He seldom failed to gain the needed ground in those cutbacks over tackle. Lewellen played four years in high school and four more years at the University of Nebraska. He has kicked footballs in nearly 200 games. He must have booted the leather 50,000 yards. During his professional career he made 51 touchdowns. Now he returns to the little town in Nebraska where he will practice law and raise his two motherless children. His wife died eight months ago. For the last four years Lewellen has been district attorney of Brown County, but he was defeated in the democratic landslide of November, and leaves office in January.
