    This is nothing new. The NFL frequently gives loans to teams for new stadiums or to get started if they're an expansion team.

    Oh, and this is nothing at all like using our tax dollars to bail out a failing business. It's not OUR money the NFL is using, it's theirs, free to use as they like.

    Of course this doesn't include additional millions given to the Packers by the NFL for the Atrium.

    Once again another bozo thread, mixed with hatred instead of common sense.

    What do you mean no common sense? What HAVE the queenies won in the past 50 years?

    You cheer for a team of clowns and have the audacity ( look it up in a dictionary) to call me one?

    I love the tangent you did...but I'll play...and I'll go slow for you.

    The title of the thread was "Now the NFL is bailing teams out...hence my recourse...which applies to the thread subject. Unlike your comment, which is directed at me cheering for a particular team.

    Just because you got boxed in with your own thread doesn't mean it's cool for you to grasp at straws. Next time, get facts, then type opinion, in that order.
