    Re: Why doesn't Milwaukee have a pro football team ??

    I can't remember the exact reasons why, but years ago the Packers played several games in Milwaukee. I think that it was before their Superbowl win when attendance was low.

    I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

    They used to play a game or two out there, I even think during their Super Bowl and good years in the 90s. But I do like that joke.

    Yes they did. They used to play at Milwaukee County stadium. I watched a Vikings game there once.

    "In 1994, the National Football League’s Green Bay Packers announced that they were leaving the stadium, where they had played two or three regular-season games each year since 1953."

    What a piece of shit stadium that was.

    They played there because a lot of the season ticket holders were from the Milwaukee area.

    The Vikings should play a game a year in North Dakota. Do they even have buildings there though?

    I meant like actual buildings. Don't they live in igloos or quonset huts or something?

    When they had low attendance? The Packers have been sold out for years, well before the Super Bowl years. It was to satisfy season ticket holders since so many were from Milwaukee, but yeah that stadium was a complete garbage heap.
