The Cowboys and Giants combined have 13 titles. The Packers have won 13. Why would two inferior franchises complain about Green Bay?
The Packers are a VERY small market team that wouldn't exist without the NFL's revenue sharing system (that dates back to around 1960).....Pete Rozelle came right out and said that was the only thing keeping the Packers in Green Bay because otherwise they'd NEVER be able to compete.
