Left to Green Bay's native economic base, Rozelle was quick to point out, the Packers would have died in the modern age. The town had no media market to speak of, but thanks to the television-sharing policy initiated by the commissioner in 1961, that didn't matter. 'Where else could a place like Green Bay play the likes of New York and Los Angeles?' Rozelle asked. 'It says a lot for our League that they are still, and always will be part of it.'
