ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (AP) -- Some residents who live in the shadow of Lambeau Field are asking if there's an offseason for being a sports fan.

The village of Ashwaubenon is asking the residents to take down their Green Bay Packers and Wisconsin Badgers banners that fly from a duplex and an apartment building.

Tyler Jozwiak says he and his neighbors were contacted by the village's code enforcement officer to take them down. USA Today Network says no citations were issued. Jozwiak says everyone in Green Bay knows there's no offseason to being a Packers fan.

Village officials planned to meet Thursday to discuss the matter.
