What, a "non profit" organization that scams it's fans into thinking they own the team? One where you can purchase stock in the team that nets you zero dollars or benefits. No thank you.
I'm hesitant to say I like anything about the Packers, but what's wrong with that? People paid big bucks for a brick of Candlestick, that doesn't seem like any smarter a decision than a stock in the Packers.
Their setup allows a tiny midwestern city to keep one of the most successful franchises around
. The stadium is great, and the team has been run very well for a long time. Handing money over to a billionaire owner doesn't feel any better to me at the end of the day. I like Jed York and I REALLY appreciate the way they have been able to turn around the Niners but at the end of the day the absolute #1 reason the Yorks have the team is to make money.
