The modern era of the NFL begins as divisional play begins. Playing in the Western Division, Green Bay stumble out of the gate going winless in their first three games. The Packers would only play mediocre football the rest of the way finishing with a losing record for the first time at 5-7-1. The franchise began playing a few games a season in Milwaukee to draw extra revenue, playing at old Borchett Field.
The NFL underwent major changes in 1933. Because of the success of the 1932 NFL Playoff Game, the league divided its teams into two divisions for the first time, with the winners of each division playing in a championship game to determine the NFL champion. Three new teams also joined the league: the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Cincinnati Reds. Also, the Boston Braves changed its name to Boston Redskins and Staten Island Stapletons resigned. On February 25, 1933, the NFL discontinued the use of the Collegiate Rules Book and began to develop its own rules. The forward pass became legal anywhere behind the line of scrimmage. Previously, the passer had to be at least five yards back from the scrimmage line. This change is referred to as the "Bronko Nagurski Rule" after his controversial touchdown in the 1932 NFL Playoff Game. Hashmarks or inbounds lines were added to the field 10 yards in from each sideline. All plays would start with the ball on or between the hashmarks. To increase the number of field goals and decrease the number of tie games, the goal posts are moved from the end lines at the back of the end zones to the goal lines. They would not be moved back until 1974.  It was a touchback when a punt hits the opponent's goal posts before being touched by a player of either team. It was a safety if a ball that is kicked behind the goal line hits the goal posts, and rolls back out of the end zone or is recovered by the kicking team. The results were obvious - NFL teams averaged an anemic 8.2 PPG in 1932, the third lowest average in league history, and then a record 23.2 PPG in 1948 – a 182 percent increase in 16 years.

JANUARY 1 (Honolulu) - Before an expected sellout of 18,000, the Green Bay Packers, conquerors of the Kamehameha alumni a week ago, 19 to 13, will meet the McKinley alumni in their second exhibition game here Monday afternoon. Such a hit did the Packers make in their first appearance that the Honolulu bookies have picked the Green Bay eleven to win by 18 points despite the fact McKinley defeated Kamehameha in the last game of the regular season, 13 to 0. An injury to Johnny Blood, who pulled a muscle, has necessitated a shift in Green Bay's lineup. Coach Curly Lambeau has gone to quarterback. Although there have been frequent showers the Packers have worked out every day since the Kamehameha game. They have done all their practice in shorts. The hospitality of the islands increases as the Packers remain. In addition to sightseeing trips in airplanes, submarines and pleasure yachts, the Packers have been guests at several native moonlight island feasts. Among those who have entertained the visitors have been James Kelly, district attorney in the Massie case. Out of the squad of 16 players the Packers have picked a basketball team which will meet the champions of the island Wednesday.
JANUARY 3 (Honolulu) - A successful football invasion of Hawaii was over today for the Green Bay Packers, professional football team from Wisconsin. Before an all-time record crowd of 17,764, the Packers yesterday swamped over an alumni team from McKinley High School, 31-0. In a Christmas game they defeated the Kamehameha alumni. The brilliant passing of halfback Arnold Herber and the equally spectacular catching of John Blood and Roger Grove were major factors in the victory. The Packers scored one touchdown four minutes after the initial kickoff and two each in the third and fourth quarters. The Packers' defense was virtually impregnable, holding the local team to four first downs while making 17 themselves. The Packers' most thrilling score came near the end of the game when Herber tossed a pass to quarterback Roger Grove who then shot a lateral to Alfred Rose for 63 yards and a touchdown. Clark Hinkle converted. The Packers first scored four minutes after the game started on Herber's 25-yard pass to Grove who ran 28 yards into scoring territory. Hinkle failed to kick goal. In the third quarter, Herber threw a 25-yard pass to Blood, who was waiting in the end zone, for the Packers' second touchdown, Grove converting. Another score soon followed, Blood breaking away for 25 yards to the Hawaiian 10-yard line where Herber went off tackle for a touchdown. An attempt was made to gain the extra point by a pass, but it failed. Three first downs, starting on the Hawaiian 47-yard line and then a 15-yard pass from Herber to tackle Lester Peterson, who became an eligible receiver, brought the first of the two touchdowns the Wisconsin team scored in the fourth quarter. Hank Bruder missed the conversion. McKinley's only scoring threat came in the final minute of play when Henry Harrison ran 65 yards from scrimmage to be finally brought down on the Packers' three-yard line by Grove.
JANUARY 3 (Stevens Point Journal) - The Green Bay Packers, it is reported, are seeking the services of Harry Newman, Michigan quarterback, and Gene Ronzani, captain and backfield ace of the Marquette University eleven. The Packers, using the Rockne style of play, could use a passer of Newman's calibre and Ronzani has enough all-around ability to prove valuable to anybody's pro team.
​JANUARY 10 (New York) - Dissatisfied with the present football code, Tim Mara, president of the New York Giants, Monday suggested to President Joseph F. Carr, president of the NFL. that the directors abolish the point after touchdown and substitute a 10-minute overtime period in the event a regulation game ends in a tie. Mara pointed out that 58 league games played the last season only one was decided by the extra point and that 20 of the 58 resulted in ties. Ties, which are now discounted in the standings, cost the Green Bay Packers the 1932 title. "In every sport but football the authorities have sought to avoid a tie score," Mara declared. "No matter whom you are rooting for you don't want to see a game end in a tie. The game has reached such a stage now that few field goals are attempted. The one desire seems to be a touchdown. I think that if the point after touchdown were eliminated it would stimulate placements or drop kicks from the field. I remember one that Tony Plansky kicked several years ago from out near midfield and from a difficult angle. That gave me as much of a thrill as any touchdown. This season we have made arrangments with the Chicago Bears in a game out there that if it should end in a tie we would experiment with an overtime period. This plan might not be feasible for collegians but I think it would work out for the professionals. I believe that our men are in better physical condition and that it would not affect them as much." Mara had no solution of the problem as to what to do if the overtime period should leave the deadlock intact. "I guess they would have leave the tie remain," he said.
JANUARY 18 (San Francisco) - The Green Bay Packers professional football team began training here today for the Knights of Columbus charity game next Sunday with the Pacific Coast All-Stars, led by Ernie Nevers. Eighteen members of the Packer squad arrived here yesterday aboard the Maui from Honolulu where they won two games during the Christmas holidays. Harold "Red" Grange of the Chicago Bears will play with the Packers in Sunday's game. He arrived here three days ago.
JANUARY 23 (San Francisco) - Ernie Nevers' Pacific Coast All-Stars, a team assembled and coached the last two weeks, furnished a surprising upset Sunday by defeating
the Green Bay Packers, formidable professional football
eleven, 13 to 6. Led by Nevers, former Stanford all-American
fullback, the coast boys plunged and passed their way to
victory over a team rated as one of the strongest in the
National Pro league. Red Grange, former galloping ghost of
Illinois, opened at left half for the Packers and played about
15 minutes, but did not have much success. He packed the
ball five times for a total loss of four yards. The charity game,
sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, supplied thrills for
a crowd of some 20,000. After a scoreless first period, the
Packers went into the lead with a touchdown early in the
second quarter. Clark Hinkle, former Bucknell fullback,
whipped a 26-yard pass to Tom Nash, right end, and the
latter ran 20 yards to score. Grove's placekick on the try for
point was low. The All-Stars followed with a touchdown and
added the extra point to go into the lead in the same period.
Bunnie Belden, sub left half, passed 30 yards to Harry
Ebding, end, and the latter jogged over after a short run.
Nevers' placekick sailed through for the extra tally. After putting up a great goal line stand that stopped a 51-yard march by the westerners in the middle of the third period, and taking the ball on their own 3-yard marker. the Packers again yielded to the coast eleven's aerial attack shortly before the quarter ended. The score was made on a 7-yard toss from Nevers to Bill McKallip after the catch. The last quarter was scoreless, but Green Bay threatened in the closing minutes when Clark Hinkle drove through the line, and Herber did some great passing in an 80 yard drive that stopped on the All-Star's 7-yard line with but two minutes left. Great work by Hinkle and Herber featured the Packers' attack all through the game, while Cal Hubbard, Milt Gantenbein, Claude Perry and Nate Barrager dealt out a beating to opposing linemen. Nash shined with his pass catching. Ernie Never, former Chicago Cardinal star, was the thorn in the Packers' side. In addition to carrying the ball 23 times, he tossed 12 of the 13 passes that his team completed in 20 tries. Ramming the line failed to produce much yardage, so the teams took to the air most of the time. Each forward wall averaged considerably about 200 pounds. The All-Stars tired 20 passes and the Packers 21. The Packers completed seven tosses for a total gain of 134 yards, with the All-Stars gaining 151 yards by way of the air.
JANUARY 29 (Los Angeles) - The longest football season Southern California fans have ever known will close Sunday when the Green Bay Packers meet an all-star aggregation at Wrigley Field. The curtain went up on football here last August with an exhibition game during the Olympics and continued at a hot pace through September, October, November and December. The Packers, former professional champions, are favored to defeat a squad headed by Ernie Pinckert, former All-American star at the University of Southern California. Three players have indicated their intentions of making Sunday's game their last. They are Red Grange, who will start at halfback for the invaders; Verne Lewellen, former Nebraska star and starting quarterback, and Pinckert.
JANUARY 30 (San Francisco) - A steady rainfall that made Wrigley Field unplayable Sunday caused the postponement until next Saturday of the football game scheduled between the Green Bay Packers of the National Professional league and a picked team led by Ernie Pinckert, former University of Southern California star.
FEBRUARY 5 (Los Angeles) - Southern Californians who like their college football watched in amazement Saturday as the Green Bay Packers professional team put on a remarkable exhibition of passing to defeat an all-star eleven at Wrigley Field here, 19 to 6. The invaders - a team of never to be forgotten men from college ranks - tossed passes with abandon, with Arnold Herber doing most of the throwing. Two of the three touchdowns which came, one each in the first three periods, were directly the result of forward tosses. The Packers didn't do much packing of the ball in the strict sense of the word. They didn't need to, what with their variety of passes, forward and lateral, working with such marked perfection over the heads of the group of Southern Californians and a sprinkling of other former collegians. Late in the first period the first touchdown was put across when Herber flipped a 14 yard throw over the goal line to Hank Bruder. Red Grange plunged the second touchdown over in the second stanza from the half yard line after he had snared one of Herber's passes on the three yard line. In the third period again Herber rifled a pass from the center of the field to the four yard line, where Johnny Blood made a spectacular catch and ambled across the goal line. For the first time during the spectacular battle Clark Hinkle, fullback, kicked goal from placement. A pass of 12 yards, Russ Saunders to Marger Apsit, accounted for the All-Stars' lone score in the third, when the former Trojan halfback crossed the goal line.
MARCH 9 (Green Bay) - Verne C. Lewellen, former Brown County District Attorney and left halfback on the Green Bay Packers football team for the last nine seasons, is critically ill in a hospital here following an appendix operation Tuesday night. The appendix burst about 24 hours before the operation and physicians today held little hope for his recovery. Lewellen, captain of the 1923 University of Nebraska football team, was regarded as the greatest punter that the game has ever produced.
MARCH 10 (Green Bay) - Slight improvement today was noted in the condition of Verne C. Lewellen, former Brown County District Attorney and for nine years star halfback of the Green Bay Packers, who is critically ill at a hospital here. Lewellen was operated upon for appendicitis, and for a time little hope was held for his recovery.
APRIL 8 (Los Angeles) - Ernie Pinckert, former Trojan All-American halfback, has been sold to the Green Bay Packers' professional football team by the Boston Braves' eleven, Pinckert told the United Press Saturday. The trade, not yet announced by the clubs, was transacted by Curly Lambeau, manager of the Green Bay Packers, in an effort to give greater strength to the Packers' power attack. Pinckert was the first blocking halfback to win unanimous selection as an all-American. He was a member of such mythical teams in 1930 and 1931. The former University of Southern California star was also the first halfback Coach Howard Jones ever permitted to carry the ball. Pinckert expressed satisfaction with the trade which will team him with Nate Barrager, former Trojan center.
APRIL 13 (Milwaukee) - Eugene (Tuffy) Ronzani, Marquette University's three sport athlete, has turned down an opportunity to visit Italy next month for a football demonstration before Premier Mussolini, friends said today. The team will be composed of players of Italian parentage. Ronzani has offers to play professional football all next fall with the Green Bay Packers, the Chicago Bears and the New York Giants but it is believed he will stay in school to finish his law course.
APRIL 25 (Milwaukee Journal) - "B-r-r-r! It's cold enough to talk football," muttered Joe Carr, president of the National Professional Football league at Columbus, Ohio last Saturday as he watched the Brewers play the Red Birds. "Pro football," continued Carr, "will eventually be launched in Milwaukee, providing a substantial backer 
JANUARY 21 (San Francisco) - Offering a post-season football game for charity, the Green Bay Packers, professional eleven, with Red Grange added to their forces, will meet a team of Pacific coast all-stars, headed by Ernie Nevers, former Stanford fullback, in Kezar Stadium here Sunday. Grange, who came west from Chicago to join the Packers here on their arrival from Honolulu, will play in the backfield with such former stars as Johnny Blood, Notre Dame quarterback, Hurdis McCrary, Georgia fullback, and Wuert Englemann, South Dakota halfback. Nevers, who announced the game would end his football playing career, will appear at fullback with Jim Musick, former University of Southern Californian star, at quarterback; Angel Brovelli, St. Mary's College ace last season, and Ernie Pinckert, who won fame at U.S.C. as halfback.
applies for the franchise. We want no fly by night or tin horn promoters in Milwaukee. We want people like those who handle the Green Bay Packers." The pro league next fall may be a 10 team circuit, according to Carr. Philadelphia and Pittsburgh have already signified their intention of joining the circuit. "The blue laws of Pennsylvania are certain to be killed by a referendum at the next fall election," added Carr. "This means that Pennsylvania, which has long banned Sunday sports, will be permitted to play football on the Sabbath and that the three major leagues in Pennsylvania - the Athletics, Phillies and Pittsburgh Pirates - will play Sunday baseball in 1934." Baseball receives Carr's full time attention after the close of his pro league schedule.
APRIL 25 (South Bend, Ind) - Norman Greeney, Cleveland, Notre Dame varsity guard for three years, today signed with the Green Bay Packers of the National Professional football league. Coach Earl Lambeau of the Packers, former Notre Dame star, signed Greeney.
JUNE 10 (Milwaukee Sentinel) - Charles (Chuck) Jaskwhich, Kenosha, Wis., boy who was the regular pilot of the Notre Dame Ramblers for the past two years, will be in a Green Bay Packer uniform this fall. It has been learned that Jaskwhich has confided in Kenosha friends that he has been approached unofficially in regard to professional football and that he is only awaiting the end of the school year before concluding formal negotiations. Under a Professional Football league rule members are not allowed to negotiate with college players until after the player's class has graduated or until he has officially given up his academic work. However, it is known that interests friendly to the Packers have sounded out Jaskwhich and that he has expressed a desire to play with the Badger entry. Jaskwhich starred in all branches of sport at Kenosha High and in his sophomore year at South Bend was understudy to Frank Carideo, Notre Dame's All-American quarterback in 1931. For the past two years he was the Ramblers' first string pilot and goal kicker deluxe. Should negotiations be completed he's expected to go a long way in filling the gap left vacant last year when Red Dunn quit pro football. The fact that the Packers use the Notre Dame style of offense should make him doubly valuable as Chuck has had one year of freshman play and three of varsity under the Rockne system. From Green Bay came the announcement yesterday that the Packers have signed Bob Monnett, Michigan State ace who was the leading college scorer  in 1931. Bob weighs around 200 pounds, is fast and elusive and is quite adept at kicking and passing. Bob will be the second Michigan State player in the Bay ranks as Roger Grove, member of the last two Packers teams, will again be a candidate for duty at half or quarter. The signing of Monnett brings three new players into the Bay fold. Jess Quatse, Pitt's all-American tackle of 1931, and Norm Greeney, Notre Dame guard, having been signed previously. Quatse was recommended by Bill Kern, Pitt line coach, who played tackle for the championship Packer teams of 1929 and 1930. Another deal, announced some time ago, is still in the air, but if completed, Ernie Pinckert, Trojan All-American halfback, will be in the Bay ranks and Tom Nash, veteran end, will be transferred to the Boston Braves.
JUNE 30 (Green Bay) - Joe Kurth, Notre Dame's all-American tackle last year, has signed to play professional football with the Green Bay Packers, it was announced by the Packer management today.
JULY 8 (Green Bay) - Coach E.L. (Curly) Lambeau, Green Bay Packer mentor, will attend the annual meeting of the National Professional football league at Chicago tomorrow and Sunday. Officers will be elected, the 1933 schedule drafted and action taken on applications for franchises in the circuit at the session. Lambeau intimated that every club in the loop last year will be in again this fall. These include Stapleton, Boston, New York, Chicago Bears and Cardinals, Portsmouth, Brooklyn and the Packers. Cincinnati and Pittsburgh applications for franchises have been tentatively accepted by the league's executive committee, Lambeau said on leaving, but must be approved by other officers.
JULY 9 (Chicago) - Three new teams were admitted to the National Professional Football league at Saturday's session of the club owners. Cincinnati, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh were granted franchises and Staten Island were given permission to withdraw for a year, making the league a 10-club circuit. Staten Island must return to the league in 1934, however, or lose its franchise. Lud Wray, former University of Pennsylvania coach, will coach the Philadelphia team; Jap Douds, former all-American from Washington and Jefferson who played with the Chicago Cardinals last year, will coach the Pittsburgh team, and William Jolly, former Marietta college coach, will coach the Cincinnati team. Joe Carr of Columbus was re-elected president, and Carl Storck, Detroit, was re-elected vice president and treasurer. The new executive committee will be composed of Dr. Harry March, New York; George Halas, Chicago, and Dr. W.B. Kelly, Green Bay. The 1933 schedules will be discussed at Sunday's meeting.
JULY 10 (Chicago) - The NFL, grown up to a 10-club circuit, will decide its championship by a playoff next season. At the annual meeting here Saturday and Sunday applications by Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati interests were granted, while the Staten Island club was permitted to withdraw for one year. The latter organization, however, must return to activity by 1934 or forfeit its franchise. The league will be divided into two sections, with Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, New York, Boston and Brooklyn in the eastern end, and Green Bay, the two Chicago clubs - Bears and Cardinals, Portsmouth and Cincinnati in the west. They will play the usual intersectional schedule, but the leaders of the two division will meet for the title. The schedule, not yet complete, will open with the Chicago Cardinals at Pittsburgh Wednesday September 13. Philadelphia and Pittsburgh will play on weekday nights until the Pennsylvania blue laws are changed to permit Sunday games. Green Bay will open on September 17 against Boston and the champion Chicago Bears will get into action at Green Bay a week later.
JULY 19 (Manitowoc Herald Times) - Professional football threatens to become an almost year around proposition for the Green Bay Packers if the story that is going the rounds is true. The rumor is that the Packers probably will augment their National league season this year by competing with three other league clubs in a Pacific Coast winter league starting the first Sunday in January. Green Bay, New York Giants, Boston, and the Chicago Bears are said to be the teams that will comprise the circuit. Four western cities, probably San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego and Hollywood are to sponsor the teams. Exhibitions will augment the regular league games. Last season the Packers visited the Hawaiian islands.
JULY 26 (Green Bay) - Leland H. Joannes was re-elected for his fourth term as president of the Green Bay Packer Football corporation at a meeting of stockholders and directors here. Other officers re-elected were Gerald Clifford, vice president; Charles O'Connor, treasurer, and George W. Calhoun, secretary. Members of the executive board re-elected are the president and vice president and two former presidents, Andrew B. Turnbull and Dr. W.W. Kelly, who is also a member of the National league executive committee.
AUGUST 1 (Green Bay) - Roger Grove, quarterback, and Wuert Englemann, halfback, have signed to play with the Green Bay Packers again this fall, it has been announced by E.L. (Curly) Lambeau. The announcement of Grove's and Englemann's signing brings the total of the squad to six thus far. Others include Jesse Quatse, All-Anerican tackle at Pitt in 1931; Joseph Kurth, All-American tackle at Notre Dame last year; Robert Monnett, the leading collegiate scorer while at Michigan State in 1931, and Norman Greeney, veteran guard at Notre Dame.
AUGUST 5 (Green Bay) - Milton Gantenbein, the only University of Wisconsin product to hold a job with the Green Bay Packers since the days of Cub Buck, the Badger state immortal, has returned his signed contract to Coach E.L. (Curly) Lambeau for the 1933 season, it was announced today, and is figured to be a fixture at one of the end posts. Gantenbein will be starting his third year with the Packers, and his 210 pound frame has figured in many Packer victories since he came here after captaining the Wisconsin team in 1930.
AUGUST 7 (Milwaukee) - Buckets Goldenberg, former University of Wisconsin gridder, announced today he had signed a contract to play professional football with the Green Bay Packers. For the last year he has been a professional wrestler. It was expected that Goldenberg will play in the Packer line, although he may be used as a blocking back.
AUGUST 8 (Green Bay) - Lon Evans, all western guard in 1932, has signed to play with the Green Bay Packers of the national professional league, Coach E.L. Lambeau said Tuesday. Evans will report September 1. He weighs 215 pounds and was instrumental in giving Texas Christian University a conference championship last year. He was presented the most valuable player trophy offered by schools playing in the Texas conference.
​AUGUST 9 (Green Bay) - Noble Atkins, Texas Christian university product, and one of the greatest offensive centers ever developed in the Southwestern Conference, was added today to the Green Bay Packer roster for 1933. The teammate of Lon Evans, who was signed yesterday, stands six feet tall and weighs 210 pounds. Atkins was brought to the attention of Coach E.L. (Curly) Lambeau in 1930, through his sterling play against Milt Gantenbein and Hank Bruder, veteran Packers, in the East-West game on the Pacific coast helping the West eleven win, 3 to 0. Atkins has been coaching at Texas Christian since he captained his college squad three years ago and this will be his first venture into professional football.
AUGUST 11 (Green Bay) - The first Green Bay grid product to be signed by Coach E.L. Lambeau for the 1933 Packer eleven was added to the roster today when it was announced that Arthur (Red) Bultman, 190 pound center, will report for practice September 1. Except for Coach Lambeau and Arnold Herber, halfback prodigy of the National league last fall, Bultman is the only member of the Bays' 1933 squad who got his start on Green Bay gridirons. He was rated as one of the greatest centers ever turned out at Marquette and captained the Hilltop eleven in 1930. Bultman signed with the Brooklyn Dodgers of the pro loop in 1931. Coach Lambeau added him to the Bay roster last fall.
AUGUST 15 (Green Bay) - Arnold Herber, who now tips the scales at 205 pounds, has signed his 1933 contract with the Green Bay Packers professional football team. Herber, one of the greatest of Fox River Valley Conference high school stars not so many years ago, really came into his own last season. His fine passing, punting and slashing line attacks won him praise last fall and he will start his third season as a halfback with a better than average chance of winning a place on the all-American professional team. After graduation at West High, Green Bay, Herber entered the University of Wisconsin and starred one season at Madison in freshman football. He then headed west and played the following year for Regis College in Colorado. The next year he attempted to break into professional football and showed enough to warrant Coach E.L. (Curly) Lambeau awarding him a 1932 contract. The faith that Lambeau had in Herber was justified. Herber is regarded by many football followers as being on a par with Benny Friedman as a passer. Moreover, Arnie has few equals as a punter. He is the 16th Packer to sign his 1933 contract. The complete squad is as follows:
Ends - Al Rose, Texas; Milt Gantenbein, Wisconsin; and Ben Smith, Alabama
Tackles - Joe Kurth, Notre Dame, and Jesse Quatse, Pittsburgh
Guards - Norman Greeney, Notre Dame, and Lon Evans, Texas Christian

AUGUST 15 (Green Bay) - A veteran of seven years in the National league, Claude Perry, 201 pound tackle, who joined the Packers immediately upon graduation from Alabama in 1926, was signed today to play with the Bays for the coming season. Perry was an all-Southern selection in his undergraduate days. He plays either tackle, is known as one of the most aggressive linemen of the Packers' championship era, and is especially adept at rushing passers. He is the only National league lineman who has never worn headgear in battle. Perry's stay with the Packers was interrupted only once. In midseason of 1931, he was loaned to Brooklyn, where he played great football and in 1932 returned here. Perry's addition to the squad brings the Packer total to 17.
AUGUST 16 (Green Bay) - Pending the decision of the state supreme court on an appeal now before it, a certified public accountant has been appointed receiver for the Green Bay football corporation in an action to conserve all assets of the corporation. At the instance of Leland H. Joannes, president of the corporation, the order for the receivership was issued by Circuit Judge Henry Graass, who appointed Frank J. Jonet, Green Bay accountant, who has audited the books of the corporation on numerous occasions. The cause for the receivership came about last fall when Willard J. Bent, Green Bay, fell from the bleachers at a Packer game, sustaining serious injuries. He secured a judgment of $5,200 against the corporation, which has since been appealed to the supreme court. Since the appeal, Bent started supplementary proceedings before William Surplice, circuit court commission, toward collection of the judgment. These proceedings would have included examination of the corporation officers, concerning all records, contracts and other data. Although the corporation carried insurance against such accidents, the insurance company had since gone into receivership, and the receiver declined to assume the defense.
AUGUST 23 (Green Bay) - Reduction in season tickets and general admission tickets for the west end stands has been made by the directors of the Green Bay Packer Football corporation. Seats in the west end stands may now be procured for 75 cents. The revamped scale of prices for season tickets follow: box seats have been reduced from $20 to $15; the 50-yard line reserved seat sections from $15 to $12, and there will be a new group of season tickets priced at $9. These are regular $1.50 seats. Included in the other admission prices will be seats near the 30-yard line for $1.25 and $1. The season tickets cover the six National league games at home as follows: September 17 - Boston Redskins, September 24 - Chicago Bears, October 1 - New York Giants, October 8 - Portsmouth Spartans, October 15 - Pittsburgh Pirates, October 29 - Philadelphia Quakers. There will be no reserved seats for the veterans-recruits interclub contest September 10. The admission will be 50 cents for adults and 25 cents for children. Hurdis McCrary, one of Georgia's famous backs, has signed again to play with the Packers. He is the twentieth player to sign and will be starting his fifth season with Green Bay. McCrary has been used at halfback and fullback. He is married, has two children and managing a filling station at Green Bay during the off-season.
AUGUST 25 (Green Bay) - The personnel of the backfield of the 1933 Green Bay Packers was practically completed today with the announcement of Manager Curly Lambeau that Clark Hinkle, versatile fullback, had been signed again.
SEPTEMBER 2 (Green Bay) - The Green Bay Packers squad today numbered 23 with the signing of Al Sarafiny, former varsity center at St. Edward's College, Boswell, Tex. Sarafiny, who lives at Iron River, Wis., weighs 230 pounds and is 6 feet 2 inches tall. The Packers will start practice September 5.
SEPTEMBER 6 (Green Bay) - Coach Curly Lambeau trotted out his Green Bay Packers for the first practice of the 1933 season yesterday. An intra-squad game is scheduled for Sunday. Five veterans were missing. Verne Lewellen, Cal Hubbard, Clark Hinkle, Mike Michalske and Johnny Blood. Nate Barrager, veteran center, has decided not to play pro football this year.
SEPTEMBER 7 (Milwaukee) - Officials of the Green Bay football corporation will come to Milwaukee Thursday afternoon to discuss with Lou Nahin, president of the Milwaukee baseball club the possibility of playing the regularly scheduled National league game with the New York Giants at Borchert Field here October 1. The Packers have long said that they could partially repay Milwaukee fans who have so long supported them at Green Bay by playing at least one big game in Milwaukee each season.
SEPTEMBER 9 (Green Bay) - Football and baseball fans will share the sport spotlight here Sunday in a doubleheaders sport card featuring the opening appearance of the
Green Bay Packer squad in an inter-club game and the first contest
of the State league baseball championship series between Green
Bay and Wisconsin Rapids. The gridiron contest which will bring
together the Packer veterans and yearlings will get underway at 2
p.m. sharp at the City Stadium while the ball game is booked for
Green Sox park, which is only five minutes walk from the football
field. The initial tilt of the "little world series" is to start at 4 p.m. With
this schedule it is possible for the sport enthusiasts to attend both
engagements. Both contests are at "bargain day" prices and it will
cost less to see the sport doubleheader than the usual price of
admission to a NFL engagement. The inter-club football game has
created a lot of interest. The Packers have been working out since
Monday and some of the recruits have been stepping around splendidly in practice. Of course, the veterans still think they have considerable edge but the yearlings may hand them the surprise of their lives in Sunday's engagement. In Joe Kurth and Jess Quatse, the recruits has a pair of all-American tackles. Ben Smith was an all-southern end at Alabama while Buster Mott, Georgia, and Bob Monnett, Michigan State, were among the best halfbacks in college circles last fall.
SEPTEMBER 10 (Milwaukee) - Milwaukee football fans who have had to drive 120 miles or so to Green Bay Sundays to get their professional football, will finally have a chance of seeing the Packers in a league game here. After several weeks of dickering, the club announced Saturday it would move its October 1 game with the New York Giants to Borchert Field. The Packers will back the game themselves. Several Milwaukee men who tried to get it at first, almost bumping into each other in the rush, had, it turned out, much more conversation than cash, much more, and the club decided to go it alone. It will be the first league game Milwaukee has had since the days 10 years ago when Paul Robeson, now a noted concert singer, Fritz Pollard and Jimmy Conzelman played with Joe McGurk's original Badgers. Several men did try to reintroduce professional football here later and in several instances brought league teams in for exhibitions, including the Packers. But beyond the exhibition stage, it never went. The well always ran dry. The Packers have long felt they owed something in the way of a game like this to their fans in this neck of the state, but, as often happens, they didn't get down to it right away. They couldn't get this or they couldn't get that. Now that it has been started, however, Milwaukee can probably expect to have at least one big game a year. While the seating arrangement at the ball park is not as good as that in a football stadium, naturally it will still be possible, by using knockdown bleachers in right and left field, to provide at least 7,000 to 8,000 seats between the goal lines. All told the park can be made to accommodate about 13,000 or 14,000 persons. The prices will range from $2 to 75 cents. The choice of the Giant game for their debut here was, perhaps, as good as any the Packers could make. Not only will they have their own array of new all-American material including such men as Joe Kurth of Notre Dame, Quatse of Pittsburgh and Monnett of Michigan State, but the Giants will come with Harry Newman of Michign State, the little Jewish wonder boy who stole  most of the glory in the recent east-west game at Soldier Field. Tickets for the game will be placed on sale here this week. 
SEPTEMBER 11 (Green Bay) - The Packers mauled each other around in a practice game here Sunday afternoon, the regulars on one side, the rookies on the other, and they left the very definite impression as they moved about, that together they'll be one of the tough clubs in the National league again. Not that it meant anything, but the regulars won, something like 25 to 6. It did mean something, however, that the old heads, that is, those who survived the housecleaning, moved around with considerable more dash than is customary in a game of this kind; that the  new men looked at least as good, if not slightly better as a whole, than the average crop of new  men who break in on various post-graduate fields each year, and that Curly Lambeau, who coaches all these men and who has always been a nut on passing, forward passing, has apparently suddenly gone screwy on lateral passing, too. They lateraled the ball all over the field, off punts, on forward passes, off kickoffs, and if Curly can get such an attack to click as he had made others, his team, it seems, ought to be better armed than ever. Even he felt quite contented about the layout as he tugged on the nickel habana to which, since it was Sunday night he blew himself after the game. "I think we ought to have a pretty good season," he said. It was the kind of remark that no college coach anywhere has been known to make since Joe McDuff's great statement in September of the undefeated season of 1904. "Well, boys, it looks like we'll have a fair season all right, but..," Mr. McDuff was shot shortly after by an assassin, supposedly hired by his brothers in the coaching fraternity, but his team, as you recall, went on to win every game anyway. Getting back to Curly, however, he refused to fib about what he though. "With a 50-50 split in breaks," he continued, "we ought to be up there somewhere. The whole league is stronger than it was last year, much stronger, and the whole league as usual, will point for us. But if we can get by Boston Sunday and the Bears a week later, I think we will be something." Which brings up the one sour note of the symphony. The 50-50 break in breaks Lambeau mentioned went all the other way Sunday. Jesse Quatse, Pittsburgh's all-American tackle last year and a little King Kong, pulled a muscle in his leg that may need attention for some time; Red Bultman, the one veteran center, strained his back, and Clark Hinkle, one of the best fullbacks in the league will have his tonsils out Monday. There's no point in getting that kind of a start in a practice game with a strong Boston club and the Bears just ahead. Of the old heads in Sunday's encounter, none looked better than Engleman, Herber, Dilweg, Perry or Comstock. Herber, who used to move around the field somewhat bewildered, now has all the poise and confidence of a star. He has repaid Lambeau for the time spent on him. Englemann, playing as though it might be against the Bears, snatched passes all over the field. He scored two touchdowns and tossed a pass for another. Dilweg, without the worries of the political campaign last fall, looked himself again and Perry and Old Reliable Comstock who looked as good as anybody in the line the last half of last season, started off apparently where they had left off. Among the new men, Ben Smith of Alabama looks like a valuable addition to the wings. Joe Kurth of Notre Dame to the tackles and Bob Monnett of Michigan State, Buster Mott of Georgia and Buckets Goldenberg of Wisconsin to the backfield. Quatse, although injured, has showed Lambeau enough in practice. The regulars scored their first touchdown in the first two minutes of play when Englemann scooped up a blocked punt and ran 30 yards across the goal. A few minutes later he passed to
Herber for the second touchdown and a few minutes later again he took a pass from Herber for the third touchdown. McCrary's fumble which Comstock recovered over the goal accounted for the fourth touchdown in the second quarter. The yannigans didn't score until the fourth quarter when Mott took a pass from Hinkle and with some nifty footwork safely crossed the line. The Packers will be at full strength by the middle of the week. Johnny Blood was due Monday from his villa near Los Angeles and Cal Hubbard, tackle, Tuesday from his summer's job as umpire in the International League. The Packers at present have a roster of 27 men which must be cut to 22 after the third game.
SEPTEMBER 14 (Green Bay) - The Boston Redskins, coached by Lone Star Dietz, are expected here tomorrow night after a week of workouts at Dyche Stadium, Evanston, in preparation for the first National Professional Football league game of the season here Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. The Redskins have a formidable lineup including Herb Fletcher, Irvin Hill, Roy Hortsmann, Lawrence Johnson, Jim Musick and John Scafide. The opening game is expected to draw a large crowd of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan fans.
SEPTEMBER 16 (Green Bay) - A rebuilt Green Bay Packers football team will take the field here Sunday afternoon against Boston in the first game of a season they hope will bring their fourth national championship in five years. The game will be played at the City Stadium. The kickoff will be at 2 p.m. The Redskins, coached by Lone Star Dietz, are expected by the Bays' mentor, Curly Lambeau, to furnish a severe test. On the squad are such stars as Herb Fletcher, former St. Mary's back; Irvin Hill, who was with the Chicago Cardinals last year; Roy Hortsmann, brilliant plunging fullback with Purdue last fall; Jim Musick, U.S.C. All-American, and Ernie Pinckert, backfield ace of the national championship U.S.C. team in 1931. Cliff Battles again is playing. Lambeau will use both his newcomers and veterans. Among the former are Buckets Goldenberg, fullback; Jess Quatse, tackle; Sarafiny, center; Joe Kurth, former Notre Dame star, tackle; Mott and Monnett, backs.
SEPTEMBER 17 (Green Bay) - Green Bay's Packers will open their campaign to recapture the National league football championship Sunday afternoon in a game here with Boston. The battle will start at 2 o'clock. Coached by Lone Star Dietz, who captained Pop Warner's Carlisle Indians back in 1911 and who has since coached at Washington State, Purdue, Wyoming and Haskell, the Braves will step on the field classified in the early reckonings as one of the real dark horses in the league. The club not only finished fourth last year with four victories, two defeats and four ties, but has since corralled some of the outstanding college players in the country. In the invading lineup will be names that football fans have long heard. Among them are Horstmann of Purdue, Musick of Southern California, Jack Riley of Northwestern, Ernie Picnkert of Southern California and Battle, who last year rated second only to Dutch Clark of Portsmouth in the individual scoring column. The Boston club arrived in Green Bay from Evanston, where Dietz pitched camp two weeks ago and sent his men through workouts twice a day. Except for Clark Hinkle, fullback, who had his tonsils out last Monday, and Jess Quatse, Pittsburgh's all-American tackle last year, who has a bad leg, the Packers finished the week in perfect condition. Hinkle rejoined the squad on Thursday but may not be in condition to play. McCrary or Goldenberg will probably take  his place. Gov. Schmedeman will speak between halves.
DECEMBER 12 (Milwaukee Journal) - Just one more all-star team, in the deluge of all-star teams that have descended on the sport pages in the last few weeks, and they can pack football away in the mothballs for a year which, as a side thought, ought to be extremely satisfying to my friend Billy Sixty and his bowlers. Just one more team, the all-star professional team. Theoretically, the all-star professional football team is the strongest football team in the world. It is the team that, with equal coaching, would crush any regular pro lineup in the country, and almost annihilate, of course, any college lineup. The Packers used to dominate this team. In their championship years they always had four or five men on it, regardless of who picked it, and they deserved that. This year they managed to squeeze in one. The Bears, Giants, Boston Redskins and Spartans have all taken the play away from them. The Bears and Giants, who will meet for the championship in the playoff at Chicago next Sunday, each have three men on the team, and Boston and Portsmouth each two. The Packers place Clark Hinkle. This is only an individual pick, of course, but I like to believe it would compare with any other team named.
DECEMBER 15 (Green Bay) - "On their own" to pick up some spending money for Christmas, the Green Bay Packers will meet the St. Louis Gunners in an exhibition game at St. Louis Sunday afternoon. Coach Curly Lambeau and 18 players will make the trip. The party will include Hank Bruder, Johnny Blood, Roger Grove, Buckets Goldenberg, Clark Hinkle, Bob Monnett, Lavvie Dilweg, Al Rose, Milton Gantenbein, Claude Perry, Cal Hubbard, Joe Kurth, Clyde Van Sickle, Mike Michalske, Rudy Comstock, Lon Evans, Art Bultman and Al Sarafiny. Lambeau will leave for the west coast immediately after the game to lineup material for next year's eleven.
DECEMBER 15 (Chicago) - Joe Carr, president of the National Professional Football league, Thursday called a special meeting of the club owners here Saturday to discuss business and proposals for an earlier closing date in the schedule and changes in the rules to open up the game. All club owners will be here to attend the post-championship game Sunday between the New York Giants and Chicago Bears. "It has been proposed that we open the 1934 season just as early as possible and close it the first Sunday in December to insure playable weather for the post-championship game," President Carr said. "This year we opened up on September 15 and closed last Sunday. We've had a good break in weather this year, but may not be so fortunate again. Also it is the tendency in our league to open the game up. Football fans want to see that football, they want to see spectacular plays, kicks and long runs for touchdowns. We are going to do our best to give 'em what they want." President Carr said the 1933 season was the most successful in the league's history, and that he expected all to retain their franchises for 1934.
DECEMBER 17 (Milwaukee Journal) - It will be anything but a snap for the Packers when they face the St. Louis Gunners in an exhibition game at St. Louis, Mo., Sunday afternoon. In fact, unless the Packers are pretty much on their toes it may develop into quite a surprise. The Gunners, coached by Gwinn Henry, late of Missouri, are one of the strongest independent professional clubs in the country. To knock off a National league entry isn't anything new to them. In the course of a season in which they have won 11 games, lost one and tied two, they have defeated both the Brooklyn Dodgers, 21 to 2, and the Chicago Cardinals, 28 to 7. They lost their only game to the Cincinnati Reds early in the season, 7 to 0. The clubs they have beaten include the Des Moines All-Stars, 21-0; Memphis Tigers, 14-3; Oklahoma City Chiefs, 19-0; Chicago Shamrocks, 7-6 and 19-6; Detroit Indians, 41-0; Fort Atkinson Blackhawks, 20-0; Cleveland Skeletons, 61-0; Tulsa All-Stars, 33-7; Chicago Cardinals, 28-7, and Brooklyn Dodgers, 21-2. They were tied by the Memphis Tigers, 13-13, and the Oklahoma City Chiefs, 0-0, in return engagements. The Packers are the first of several other National league clubs that will play in St. Louis before the first of the year. The Gunners will also meet the Chicago Bears December 17 and the Cincinnati Reds in a return game December 24. It won't hurt their gate any at these games to show a victory over Green Bay, so you may guess they haven't planned any tea party for Sunday.
DECEMBER 18 (St. Louis) - The Green Bay Packers blanked the St. Louis Gunners, 21 to 0, Sunday before 16,000 fans, the largest crowd ever to witness a professional football game in St. Louis. The bulky Packer aggregation broke the Gunners' string of 10 successive victories and inflicted the second defeat of the season. Swede Johnson, a bulwark of the Gunners team, was on the sidelines with an ankle injury, but even his smashing line drives would probably have availed little against the attack of the Packers, who held the St. Louis team to 98 yards gained from scrimmage and three first downs. The Packers pushed over three touchdowns and a field goal after a scoreless first period. Hinkle passed to Blood from the 35-yard stripe across the goal for the first scoring in the second quarter. Hinkle booted a field goal and Bruder plugged over from the one-foot line in the third. Gantenbein raced 60 yards after intercepting a pass in the closing minutes of the game for a touchdown.
