Case in point, what happened to the 15-1 season? Same thing as last year. Teams figured out the could gash them hard on the C gap in the run and that even when the packers were ahead they still had to throw the ball which kept them from eating up the clock.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

They have a large nationwide, and are one of the more popular teams in Canada, along with the Vikings, Bills, Seahawks(Border teams). Where I live specifically, Vikings/Packers have the largest fanbase, then the bandwagon jumpers have all th eother teams.
Green Bay has a unique advantage that nobody else does. When they need money, they sell pieces of paper that make fans feel special. When in reality, these "shares" (they're not really shares) are virtually worthless. They don't get dividends, they don't get voting rights. You can't own a majority of the team by buying up shares.
In reality, being a large market like New York, or a small market like Green Bay or Minnesota doesn't mean much anymore. With revenue sharing, nationwide availability of memorabilia, teams are on an even playing field. Where teams excel is how they are run. The Jags for example don't make much money because they're new, poorly run, and have sucked for hte better part of forever. The Packers, although small, have had a very successful run lately, as well as early on in their existance. They sell out a large stadium, and have fans all over the country. They are by definition a "small market" team, but by no means do they struggle financially to pay players more than any other team.
