Green Bay Packers: Socialist Capitalism Working Well

Regardless of whether the Green Bay Packers win the Super Bowl this weekend, and Pittsburgh sure looks formidable, this article by Los Angeles attorney Mark Neubauer in today's Los Angeles Times is quite compelling in offering us an alternative way of thinking about local sports teams.

I miss a Walter O'Malley who wanted to build a stadium with his own funds...not demanding the taxpayers pay for the purchase and building of a stadium. Still, even better is the Green Bay Packers' structure, which gives the municipality control over the team's destiny instead of a few centi-millionaires.
