Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is known for hiding game tickets in secret locations around the city for fans to find.

Fans, however, won’t be finding tickets this week- the MVP QB announced that he gave them to local police officers.

“To those waiting on the #rodgerstickethunt, I gave my tickets this week to police officers from the Green Bay Area. Enjoy the game!” he tweeted.

The tickets were for last night’s game, when both the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears locked arms and stood as country singer Tyler Farr sang the National Anthem.

According to Fox News, fans also locked arms and waved flags, with some folks saluting as the giant American Flag was stretched across the field.

The change in attitude and tactics comes after the NFL faced severe backlash -from America’s living rooms to the White House- for allowing players to kneel in protest against perceived police brutality against African Americans.
