Yup, the Packers is the only team that is owned by the city rater than an individual or group of individuals. Any profits the team receives from concessions, merchandise, ticket sales, etc. goes to the city. IMHO this is how all NFL teams should be owned. Green Bay, WI is the ONLY place that when they say my team they are being literal. We use to have the Oilers in Houston, moved to TN. The real reason Bud Adams moved the Oilers is that he could no longer fit his fat head and ego inside the Astrodome.

I've heard that in the past but just one of those things that you go "Oh, that makes sense".

New question.
Who developed and implemented the concept of the MASH hospital and what did they become famous for later?

Klinger wasn't gay, he was a cross dresser. Hotlips Hulihan started the first MASH.. but maybe it wasn't a hospital

He was neither gay or a cross dresser. It was an act to get a discharge.
