I decided to pass as well ... going to wait to see what kind of team they throw out there this season ... probably going to move back up to the nosebleeds as well.

Toronto and Dallas both have a lot going on in their respective cities, not just pro hockey and football. Green Bay on the other hand is a fishbowl centered on the Packers. Other than a kids park, a railroad museum and a casino, there really isn't much else to do in town. That is why 40 or 50K fans will show up for a practice. That is pressure. The championship trophy isn't named after Tom Landry.

BTW, Milwaukee 1/2 season tickets are pretty cheap. My Stern 19 pack is $320, about $17 a seat to sit in the second row near the goal that is attacked twice by the Admirals. Moving up one row is another $100. The $17 includes a facility fee (about 10%) for upkeep on the arena.

It's a different kind of atmosphere though. Packers fans and media are generally intelligent with their expectations and support of the team. From an outside perspective, it's more of a positive, supportive, community family type of deal in Green Bay.

Cowboys fans are there because it's popular, care way too much about who Romo is dating, and can't understand why the team isn't handed a championship every year on the first day of training camp. The media/fan circus of ignorance around them is more of a hindrance to success. Not to mention Jerry Jones. Before you know it, it'll be 40 years in Dallas without a Super Bowl and nobody will be able to put the pieces together to figure out the puzzle.

With the Leafs, even if they hired competent leadership, the fans and media pressure would be too much to allow them to rebuild the right way (build through the draft, maximize value of their assets, etc). The demand for blockbuster trades and huge free agent signings is too great.

Green Bay is smart enough to see through a process of developing guys like Aaron Rogers and Clay Matthews.
