A display of unity at tonight's Packer game? Then why are extra cops needed on field?

The expected show of unity during the performance of our National Anthem at tonight's Green Bay Packers--Chicago Bears game at Lambeau Field figures to be divisive.

The Packers are reading the wrong playbook.

Do these 300-pound millionaires fear their fans?

The Green Bay Police Department will have more officers on the field than usual Thursday during a planned show of unity before the Packers-Bears game at Lambeau Field.

The department, which is in charge of most of the security inside Lambeau Field, is working to protect people on the field from the possibility of fans throwing objects from the stands or fans who may try to get onto the field.

Police will not add additional staff to the game, but they will position more of the staffed officers onto the field.

The department says the effort is to make sure the proceedings leading up to kickoff are safe. Police say they'll also work diligently to protect fans in the stadium.
