GREEN BAY, Wis. -- New rules on what can be carried into Lambeau Field have snagged an unlikely suspect -- the antlered headgear-wearing fan known as the "Packalope," Larry Primeau.
Primeau will be barred from wearing his trademark '60s-era Packers helmet mounted with a 10-point deer rack at home games under security rules announced Wednesday.
Primeau, who in 1999 was enshrined in the Visa Hall of Fans at the Pro Football Hall of Fame, said he can't believe new security regulations will bar his Packalope helmet.
The rule was not aimed specifically at Primeau, as other fans have attached antlers to everything from hardhats to Cheeseheads. Green Bay Police Cmdr. Ken Brodhagen said umbrellas have been included, too.
Primeau said the rule will not crimp his style too much: "I can't wear the thing for three hours straight because my neck isn't strong enough."
