I read a letter from the mayor of Green Bay that referred to the Packers as a "small community team that can exist and succeed in the NFL despite large-market teams". Am I wrong for not being able to see Green Bay as a small community team?

It is a small market team, but it is entrenched with history. The GB fans are the best in football.

They're from a small community but they are one of America's favorite teams.

technically Green Bay is a smaller market than like NYC, Dallas, Miami etc. but I don't consider it a small market team, they poll in fans from not just their entire region but really the whole country.

In that their stadium is in a small community, yes. Green Bay is the 3rd biggest city in the state, if that. Their fanbase is huge though.

Has anyone else seen this picture yet? Does Tate have enough of the ball for it to be considered at least partial possession? Tate has two feet on the ground first. Yes, I agree the catch shouldn't even matter because of the offensive PI that wasn't called, but this angle seems to make it a little less insane to me....I dunno...


Less football talk, more mirror pics!

you are, its the Tyrone Prothro catch



The major difference here is that the defender never really had a claim, since its on his head basically. He didn't get an arm in to make it questionable

Yeah that's definitely it. My dad has been a massive Alabama fan his whole life lol
