    What if the Packers had....

    An actual owner do you think the team would be ran differently and look different then what it does now? I know this isn't the best thread but its late and im bored. Sometimes i wonder if we had an aggressive owner if our team would be better or worse. Makes you wonder if we would have made a move for a RB before the trading deadline but at the same time i would hate to have an owner like Jerry Jones. Anyways what do you guys think?

    Meh it depends really. Not all owners have their hands all over their team like Jerry Jones.

    I personally like the Packer structure. After the packer preservation fund, the Packers donate a ton of money to wisconsin charities(far more then any other team). And I think they can do that because they are not padding an owner's pockets.

    I think if they had a private owner, we would not be fans....they would have been moved out of Green Bay a long time ago

    That's not a guarantee though. Green bay is a small market but the Packers are one of the richest franchises out there, they have an amazing fan support and rich history. I really don't see why someone would move them imo.

    I think we are one of the richest teams because we don't have an actual owner. All the money goes right to the team there is no one saying ehh maybe I will only give them this much back and I am gonna pocket the rest.

    But I do have to agree with WWFD I think we would be moved because of us being a small market team.

    Whether the money goes to the team or an owner doesn't really matter. The fact is that the Packers pull in a lot of doe for a small market team. Small market teams have been successful in many different sports. The fan support the Packers have is outstanding and anyone wanting to move them would be ********. We are not like the Jags who hardly have any fan support whatsoever. I really highly doubt if we got an owner he would say ehhhh im moving the team just cause of their location. Think about it.

    The Packers pull in dough because they are different than the rest of the nfl teams. You put one sole owner on that team and they get moved years ago to a big market. Look at how ownership of other teams works. Some teams can barely get fans in the stands regardless of the product on the field. Green Bay has a formula for success and it works. Look at the "ownership" stock sales and thats proof right there. What other team do you have the chance to say you are an owner? If someone bought the packers, now you dont have the ability to say "I own the packers".

    Greed corrupts and if you can't see that than you don't pay attention to the real world these days. Not only that, but look at how much ticket prices cost at Foxboro in comparison to Green Bay. While you don't have as many options to get tickets, they are also still reasonably priced. I paid slightly over face value for my packers tickets instead of being relegated to $200-$300 nose bleed seats. Plus the expansion of Lambeau was bought and paid for by the fans. Now you'll have an owner who will set whatever ticket prices they want. Like that won't alienate the fan base?

    An owner would screw with all of the good that the Green Bay Franchise has going on right now. The Green Bay fan base spans the globe. Whats keeping it in Green Bay? The local fans. An owner would without a doubt screw over their local fan base to get the team to a big market fan base to make tons of money.

    just because the city of green bay has a small population does not make them a small market team, the green bay packers are one of the most well known sports franchises in the world

    if you base it on city population then the bucks would have a bigger market then the celtics, and the brewers would have a bigger market then the red sox, and the san diego chargers market is bigger than the dallas cowboys

    The Packers aren't a small market team. Their a team in a small market. I like the fact that we don't have one individual owner. That's just one of the pluses that makes it so neat being a fan of this team. Who knows what we'd be like or if the team would still exist in Green Bay. We don't need an agressive owner to go get this guy or that guy. Thompson has done a great job with this franchise and everybody knows it. That's why he's considered one of the best at what he does.

    Yeah i agree, i love TT and he has done a great job but at the same time he can be a little more aggressive IMO. If we make the playoffs and lose out because of our running game and lack of a good RB then that comes back on him. Sometimes he needs to make a move if it means helping this team out.

    I agree to an extent. We don't need a top tier rb however. With the way that our offense runs the rb position is just a complimentary one. It's like we just kind of use it because it's there. Our strength has always been our passing game and with the fact that #12 is behind center I don't think any of us expect it any other way. Would I like a better running game? Absolutely, but with the only guys that we're "supposedly" available, it was too much to give up. We don't even know if Jackson really was on the block. Fisher came out and said he wasn't so who knows. I think it's something we need to draft again next year and hope we hit on it. I still think Starks can get the job done and when Benson gets back it will be that much better. I know Green hasn't been great but you can't hate the guy. He got thrown into the situation and lets not forget he is a year removed from knee reconstructive surgery. It takes time to come back from something like that.
