    That's one of the reasons he is still my hero. I watched that game from my home in Ohio when I was 11 years old. That last drive was the greatest thing I had ever seen. The memory is etched into my mind. There is no doubt that the guys back then were tough as are the guys who play today. The guys today make much more money that's for sure.

    Perhaps I have heard a worse idea in my 70 years on this Earth. Just can't seem to recall any right at the moment. Changing the name from Green Bay Packers to the Bay Area Pussies might qualify as a worse idea, actually, but only FIB Bears fans would have proposed that, so I don't think it counts.

    I think That we need a dome in Green Bay ,it gets to darn cold during the playoffs and I can hardly remember the last time the Pack won a playoff game at home .2 years ago the Packers won the Superbowl, they played the Bears in Chicago and the
    temp in Chicago was 23 degree's that day at Lambeau it was like 10 .if the Packers would hav e played that game at Lambeau the out come is probably different.

    We upgrade everything else why not put a dome in Green Bay. I don't use my black and white TV anymore. Oh yeah, it don't work in the digital world.

    This is no support here in Green Bay to dome Lambeau Field by either the Top Mangement of the Packers nor Green Bay/Brown County citizens.

    The only support for a dome at Lambeau Field is by a few posters on the Packer Forum..

    Packer management has said in late 1990's, that they did not want a new Stadium built nor a dome at Lambeau Field. The Packers wanted Lambeau Field renovation at a cost $294M. Packer top management said this would take care of needs for the Packers stadium facilities until about 2031, when the Packers' lease of Lambeau Field expires.

    Since renovation of Lambeau Field in 2003, it is Packer responsibility to pay for projects like expansion of Stadium facilities like the addtion of 6,000 seats in south end zone and adding of new gate in north end zone and new gate in south end zone which will be completed in 2013.


    The greatest problem that Packers face in the NFL in the future is generating enough local revenue at Lambeau Field Facility to remain competitive in the NFL. The dome at Lambeau Field does not provide more local revenue for the the Packers at Lambeau Field facility..

    Renovation of Lambeau Field provided the Packers $119M in Local revenue earned at LF last year.
    Last year the Packers were 11th in revenue earned in the NFL. Of coarse, there are 32 teams in the NFL. That isn't bad for the team located in smallest Market (Green Bay) in the NFL. In 2110, the Packers local revenue earned at LF was $100M. Local revenue has been increasing every year since LF renovation was completed in 2003.

    1/2% Brown County Sales tax will end in 2015 ,when the there will be enough money in Lambeau Field maintenance fund Packers' 30 year LF lease. Renovation of Lambeau Field was paid for in August of 2011.

    The tax payers of Brown County /Green Bay would not vote for a referendum to provide the money for a Lambeau Field dome. In 2003 the 1/2% BC/GB sales tax passed by vote of 53% to 47% to renovate LF. A BC/GB sales tax to be used for a dome for LF would be voted down in landslide vote by BC/GB voters, if election were held in 2015....

    This is a major First World Problem. Let's see, we're fans of the greatest sports franchise in the history of organized sports and someone's complaining because they don't play in a dome?
    Really, really a funny thread.
    I get it though, I can't get parts for my S.T. Dupont cigar lighter here at the local grocery store. It's such a pain.
