Dallas has to be up there. They've built a stadium for other teams fans!



I feel bad that the Cowboys have 16 away games though

I mean, maybe every single one of them are California transplants to Texas. That's what I've been reading anyways.

The Lions have been the laughing stock of the NFL for years.

Sure, and I have no idea how well they're supported (or not), but wouldn't the crazy Wings fans and possibly Tigers fans as well at least keep them from being worst? I mean worse than Atlanta, Miami, etc?

Let us be clear the ONLY reason football has survived in Green Bay is because it's a proxy for Milwaukee.

Well let's not forget that Cowboy fans took over Candlestick three years ago. But the loud Cowboy fans are already priced out attending a game there. That's why many of us miss Texas Stadium. Not to mention it is impossible to have a home field advantage. It's a giant mall where football is played with the occasional dancer. It doesn't help that DFW and Cowboy fans throughout the state HATES Jerry Jones and tire of supporting him.

But there have always been lots of Niner fans in Texas and the way Jerry sells tickets needs to change.

Probably because he's a Green Bay Packers fan...?

Not true - Milwaukee (and Chicago - Halas bailed out GB twice in their history) and Packer fans everywhere have helped immensely, but the games are only played in GB, 5 of them Green Bay fan season tickets and 3 of them Milwaukee season tickets. Milwaukee has helped, but is only one of many other factors (including: stock sales, as the only team in professional sports without an owner). I'd factor Milwaukee in after the stock/ownership, NE Wisconsin fans, and others.

Believe it or not, Milwaukee is a baseball town. I've lived in both, and I can tell you this with certainty. They love the Packers, but the mood of the city is more based around how the Brewers are doing...so it's pretty down right now!

Well I guess that's what I mean, I know people in the city show massive support, but in terms of filling the 168 corporate suites, and 80k seats there's just no way that could be handled by the Green Bay business community. It HAS to come from all over Wisconsin.
