GREEN BAY (AP) - The Green Bay Packers were expecting more than 17,000 shareholders at their annual meeting at Lambeau Field.

The meeting lasted about two hours. Afterward attendees could take self-guided tours of recent stadium improvements, including the new south end zone.

Shareholders who couldn't attend in person could watch the meeting online on a password-protected webcast.

The Packers are the NFL's only publicly owned team. Fans become shareholders by buying shares of stock during one of the team's infrequent stock sales. The last one wrapped up last year, when more than 268,000 people bought shares for $250 apiece.

Buyers gain the privilege of calling themselves NFL owners, even though the stock value doesn't go up and there are no dividends.
