When coach Mike Holmgren told Jervey, "no lion", Travis thought he might like something else like a tiger.

Answer: Hagemeister Park
Hagemeister Park had no bleachers so the fans could roam around freely. There were ropes along side of the field so the fans would know no not to go on it. During halftime, the teams would meet in opposite endzones to make plays, and fans would sometimes enter the conversations. To pay the players they would pass around a hat and it would collect donations from the fans. The Packers played six total games in the 1919 season at Hagemeister Park.
With an amazing defense, the Packers allowed only 22 points in the season. This included their only tie, 0-0, against the Frankford Yellow Jackets in week 11. The Packers would go on to be the first team to win three consecutive NFL Championships, winning again in 1930 and 1931. The franchise would later duplicate this by winning three again from 1965-1967.
