Such a lovely stadium

I'd like to say it's a happy Tuesday, but our rivals to the west might have to start threatening to take their business elsewhere. Ask any Pittsburgh Steelers fan how funny it was when the Browns went away. They felt robbed of your rival. If you're in the dark about what's happening, no problem! That's what we're here for. Here's your daily Green Bay Packers news and links.

He wants a new stadium for the team just about any way he can get it. He's willing to put it downtown or in the suburbs, he's willing to kick in private money to finance it, and he's let other local teams get their stadiums through local government first. Local government isn't willing to play ball with him at all. If he wants a stadium, he's going to have to threaten to go sign a lease at Farmer's Field in Los Angeles.
