His request to speak at next week’s annual meeting was turned down, so a shareholder is now inviting President Trump to attend the Packers shareholders’ meeting next week. Steven Tiefenthaler wanted three minutes to talk about players who kneel in protest at games. The team says his subject matter doesn’t fit the format of a business meeting. Tiefenthaler admits the president escalated the controversy last fall. When he said kneeling players should be fired, the one percent who had been kneeling were joined by more than half of the rest of the players. Tiefenthaler says it isn’t his wish to be confrontational and he isn’t bitter that he was turned down.
