I am talking about the 1980's Green Bay Packers, and the fact that before Brett Favre showed up it was an outpost. Look it up. It was. We are not talking about 50 years ago, we are talking about modern sports.

Yes it was (a cold weather outpost) in the 70's and 80's. Players wanted to play in Los Angeles, Miami, and warm weather cities. The only "household name" free agents they could sign, were players looking for a place to basically die. I grew so accustomed to this trend, I remember with shock, when Green Bay actually signed Keith Jackson and Reggie White. Some stars with gas still in the tank would actually come to Green Bay?

If you pay them well and give them a chance to win, they will come.
