Suit Filed Against Chicago Bears, NFL Over Wearing Gear

"It sounds made up".

The Bears-Packers rivalry reached a whole new level: federal court.

"I like the rivalry", Beckman said.

According to the Greater Green Bay Convention and Visitors Bureau and a 2010 study by AECOM, training camp, along with Packers Family Night will attract approximately 90,000 visitors from across the nation and as many as 20 foreign countries. I love it to death.

"Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel even chimed in saying, "...we wish the Tampa Bay Lightning management would welcome Chicago fans to their city and not be afraid to let them into their arena for the Stanley Cup Finals".

A die-hard Green Bay Packers fan married the woman of his dreams and took her last name. So he has filed a federal lawsuit against the Bears and the National Football League for the right to wear his Packers gear - which can include a jersey, lots of green and gold beads and paint in his beard - during that on-field experience. He sells the others. Russell Beckman, who is both a Packers and Bears season ticket holder, generally only attends Bears games when the Packers are playing there. He went in Packers apparel anyway and was turned away.

Beckman has been a Packers' season ticket holder since the 1980's, and a Bears' season ticket holder since 2003. "I was relieved he didn't try to eat it!" I knew if it wasn't resolved I'd file a lawsuit. "And then she told me her last name", he recalled.

The filing includes email strings showing Beckman's attempt to get the dispute resolved before the event. It's hard to see a legal challenge going very far, and it's also hard to see the Bears settling, because while Mike Ditka may be a raving looney these days, he did once accurately note that George Halas "threw nickels around like they're manhole covers".

It has not been associated with radical views for more than a decade. " London is a city of many faiths and many nationalities. All my thoughts are with the victims, their families and the emergency services on the scene". "'I want to kill Muslims'".

"I would fight for a Bears fan or a Chargers fan", Beckman said.

He also sent a certified letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, according to the lawsuit, but did not receive a response.

Beckman said he doesn't drink and considers himself a well-behaved fan.

"People are just going insane over it".

"I feel strongly enough about it and I want to do this experience as I grow older with my friends, my children and my grandchildren", Beckman said.

His 10-page suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago on Friday, seeking a court order lifting the ban.

"That's the only issue". "It's an experience for Bears season ticketholders, which I am".
