GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson rarely reveals much about his football team at the team's annual shareholders meeting. It didn't stop him from enjoying the moment with thousands of fans.
   Speaking to an estimated crowd of 13,000 shareholders at Lambeau Field on Wednesday, Thompson pointed to the recently completed south end zone addition that added 7,000 seats. He says it increased total capacity to 80,750, making it the third-largest stadium in the league. The crowd cheered when Murphy said Lambeau Field had surpassed Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
   President and CEO Mark Murphy also said there is no fresh news when it comes to the process of retiring former quarterback Brett Favre's No. 4.
