    COMPLETELY HYPOTHETICAL

    How many people would like this...

    Minny's roof collapsed, their team is in shackles and the Packers are playing catch up with an overrated Bears team that leads the NFC North.

    Instead of playing in UofM, they play at Lambeau! Favre miraculously becomes better and iron man's it out for one last game against one of his greatest rivals in front of Bear, Viking, and Packer fans alike. Favre beats the bears in a stunning upset, to the cheers of both viking and Packer fans. He then announces his OFFICIAL retirement and announces he.. at least LIKED playing for Green Bay at the end (an apology for being a DB would be better...)

    I would then dismiss his entire satire of a career in minny.

    You?

    Honestly if they held that game at Lambeau it'd be the only chance Favre has to get cheered at Lambeau in the near future.

    This may come to pass. They are already starting reports that U of M may ready/ may not be ready, I was posting that in one of the news bot threads. If Favre beat the Bears at Lambeau Field, I'd be happy (for the Packers) but not yet ready to forget all that went down.

    The guy on the local radio here said he kept hearing Indianapolis. Or Atlanta, which makes no sense to me.

    I'm not sure why they don't use Detroit again. They're playing in Tampa this week.

    Because that would be logical and would make sense and we are talking about the Vikings, LOL!

    It does seem illogical to foot the bill to de-winterize a stadium and winterize it again when you are done when you have other stadiums at the ready. Detroit at least would be neutral. They would hate both teams equally.

    The Packers organization had better fight with everything they've got to prevent the Vikings from being the home team at Lambeau. Seriously, that's sacrilege.

    Bomb threat?

    actually I would be worried about them trying to plant listening devices. They are like the poor mans patriots when it comes to cheating.

    The Vikes are out of playoff contention.
    They compete with the Pack and know the situation.
    And we know that Fail went to the Vikes to get revenge on TT and MM.
    He was booed at Lambeau. Twice.
    So why the heck would he even think about helping out the Packers and the fans?
    I would expect that BrINT would actually throw INTs to Bears defenders on purpose to help them win so that he could stick it to the Pack one more time.
    And would fans really want to cheer him on? Maybe some golf claps.

    I know your scenerio is hypothetical.
    But it's just too implausable for me to see it happening the magical way you describe.

    At this point the Vikings don't have anything to lose.
    So I don't really expect much effort from them against Da Bears Mon. night.

    hmmm... good point. I forgot that it would be a Minny home game. I kinda just thought of it as a neutral game. I suppose I'd rather keep Lambeau pure than give the traitor a chance at redemption...

    TO DETROIT! where ****** teams meet a ****** city!

    Not likely to happen but I'd be all for them playing at Lambeau. More money for the Packers.

    I can see Minny playing their azzes off to be a spoiler, but I can't stomach the thought of them as a "home" team in Lambeau. I'd seek therapy for sure.

    It would be the Apocalypse if Vikings had a Home Game in Green bay.

    How about Miller Park?
    Would that be OK or not?

    Miller would be fine, but im pretty sure its winterized at the moment and I dont think they would open it for a Vikings-Bears matchup

    Two schools of thought-

    1) The Vikings organization knows there's a lot of Bears fans in the surrounding areas and don't want to lose out on home field advantage any more than they already have. As such, they're advocating moving the game to Atlanta.

    2) ESPN will be in Atlanta for MNF next week anyway, so they're also pushing Atlanta this week as it makes sense for them and allows them to avoid having to pack up and move out for a week.

    As for using Lambeau- Hell now. The Vikings shouldn't be allowed to be the home team on our turf and the Bears shouldn't be allowed to potentially celebrate a division championship on our turf.
