How so?

The team is owned by the city, but that doesn't mean the fans have a say.

Most of the time people talk about the share issue, which was an almighty con:

I would consider the fact fans 'pay' for stadium upkeep & regeneration as a good thing. It also means all profits are re-invested in to the team and surrounding areas. The team will also never relocate or ever be sold so that can only be a good thing.

Yes I understand no one is going to make any profit from it, but if you're buying stocks as a fan I don't think your intention is to make a profit. If you were buying stocks to make a profit that would ruin the socialist aspect of it. I also don't think it can be described as a scam when the intentions are clearly laid out. No one is being hoodwinked there.
So bloody what? If you watch football to be absolutely miserable then go watch cricket.

Fine, does "taking advantage of gleeful idiots" work for you? They're a financially successful franchise and could pay for these expansions over time without gouging their fans.

It's not even about making a profit, it's about paying money for something worthless. Why not have Rodgers and the gang stand outside the stadium with a bucket? At least it would be honest!

I will slag off Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy until my dying breath. Aaron Rodgers should have 5 rings.

I also think that whole cheesehead/WE OWN OUR TEAM thing is embarrassing. But otherwise I have no issue with them at all.

We do need more angry fans defending their team on here, unfortunately there's only three good teams in the league at the minute so everyone is kinda just miserable haha.

Going back to my original point about Green Bay's comeback not being impressive, I can think of an example of a very good comeback - week one, Green Bay vs Chicago. They were beaten down and then adjusted and retooled and out played Chicago in a win. That was a great fucking comeback.

I was only saying my first comment in jest really.

I also think the Cheesehead thing is cringeworthy, tho I think most nfl support is cringeworthy.

I havenít got much time for McCarthy as he has obviously underachieved with Rodgers.

Iíll support them regardless of whoís in charge tho as I have lived in Wisconsin and family still there, the whole state is crazy for them.

Ps calm down skeeve  ::)

I was there in the summer, really liked that part of the world. Especially Madison.

With Liverpool making as much money as they are I wouldn't.

We're both fucked because Jameis won't pass 20pts again and part of the reason will be ignoring Evans. Bastard!

Wtf? I merely pointed out that there was nothing wrong with slagging off another team, unless it overtakes the love of your own team like it does with most bitters, it is a reasonable part of fandom to mock rivals.  ;D

You'd have to deal with them a lot more than me to be fair, I wouldn't have the faintest idea if they are. I could see how it would be annoying though.

Thankfully I manage to stay away from all that mostly but I can see where you're coming from now.

I think it's actually interesting to learn this kind of stuff when you follow a team from across the Atlantic. We obviously have a very different picture of things over here and I don't spend any time on Packers social media of forums so don't have a clue what their actual fan base is like.

I would strongly recommend you don't! Imagine hysterical idiot fans multiplied by the world renowned American Education system multiplied by 30 years of winning without winning.

Me too, and I barely interact with people about this kind of football. Brits especially often seem to get kind of preachy cos they try to relate the 'fan ownership' thing to socialism, which is just hilarious given the sport, the money involved, the lack of collectivism and the fact it's untrue.

In your opinion yes, I don't have any dependants at this stage in my life and I'd rather spend it on that than a night out that I probably won't remember. Each to their own, it's not as if I'm organising a whip around.

I'm not suggesting giving the club 250 euro for nothing, if there was a fund set up to redevelop the ARE I'd happily pay 250 euro towards. Maybe there'd be a complimentary ticket for a home game thrown in, all the better.
