Wisconsin Budget Crisis Solved: Sell the Green Bay
Thought people might get a kick our of this article!
But even Scott Walker says that his proposal to eliminate most collective bargaining rights for state workers and to cut back their health and pension plans will only take $300 million off a coming $3 billion deficit. Where else can Wisconsin get money?
Walker could start by selling the Green Bay Packers. Decades after Akron and Pottsville and Kenosha dropped out of the football business, Green Bay is still, somehow, in possession of an NFL team. It makes no sense. An outdated system of socialized public ownership has enabled an obscure small city to occupy a place in pro sports that by all economic logic should go to a wealthy metropolis.
The rigors of Spartan life. Leonidas is cast out into the wild, and survives the harsh winter to return to his home, when he is crowned King ....a Viking!

I am sure Defroster will chime in on this one at some point. There will probably be a Halas reference thrown in there too. lol

But selling the Packers wouldn't generate enough to cover the short fall. They'd also have to sell the Brewers, the Bucks, and the Dells......
...oh, wait...if they sell the Bucks they'll owe money to the buyer....
DAMN, back in the red we go!!

Maybe they can pay the Packers and the Packers can give it to Wisconsin so they can pay Minnesota the 58 million in tax reciprocity they owe us.......
