A healthy Brian Westbrook is something of the past. I'd rather find a RB in the draft.

I didn't know Dunta Robinson was available. He would be worth a look. He's kind of an air head though so I don't know if I'd want him long term.

Wait, I thought good ole Brett was just a low-key, not interested in the limelight type of "aw shucks", "golly" private kinda guy.

Why the Leno show?
Is he retiring again?

You know how you guys were on about the season ticket list (one hell of a list btw!)

Is it easy to get tickets for a one off game?

Like soon I want to visit the states and do a bit of travelling and hope to include a trip to see a Packers game. Are there many packages out there for people who don't really know the area and whatnot?

Thanks for any help. :)

There isn't a single NFL game that you'd be unable to find tickets to. It's just about how much you're willing to pay.

if we are back on tickets I just found out I am only 2,000 away! When we got on the list 22 years ago the wait list was only in the 11,000s, so in 20 years the list only moved very much

Yeah tickets are not very easy to get unless your willing to spend. I personally usually have to buy mine from a family friend to get them a a reasonable price. I think tickets usually come in 2's also (correct me if I am wrong)

UK_Cheesehead if you don't mind me asking, what is your take on American football in the UK? Whenever I read on it I get really mixed reviews and my sports and rec professor who travels and teaches in the UK a lot has said he doesn't believe it is growing that much.. Do you think having a NFL Franchise in London would ever really work out? It seems like Goodell is trying

At that rate 5 years away. I would be really pumped if I had Packer season tickets coming in just 5 years.

If they keep going at the same rate (about 400/year) anyone above 30,000 on the list won't be alive for them.

If I was going to do a trip to the states I might aswell pay whatever's needed to get the tickets. Unless I move out there, I might not get many more chances to do it again so I'd probably pay whatever I had to provided it wasn't blatant robbery haha. 2 wouldn't be a problem, it's a while off but I know I will have a few people who would come with me.

I think there is a strong core of fans, and it's growing slowly but not at the speed Goodell (imo) thinks it is. We have a thing called a British American Football League and there's over 80 teams in that, with good squad size and some people coming to watch, so there is a strong following. There's also more air time on terestrial tv over here but Sky (your cable?) have been fantastic since I've been watching. Between them and channel 5 (terestrial again) they have the Thursday night game, 3 Sunday games and the MNF game. So there's plenty to watch and like I say, I think there is a good core of fans and I'd rank the sport at around 4/5 with following in the UK. It will never be as big as soccer, cricket or rugby imo but it can get close to the amount of fans rugby has hopefully. A franchise in London would never work and personally wouldn't want it. I'd hate the thought of a team in the states being in the Premier League (no offence!), I know everytime we get one of your games it's a 90k sellout but that's because 50% of them are daytrippers who would like to see a live game just to say they've seen one, 30% are probably corporate ***** stuck up their own arse who couldn't tell you what a first down is, so that leaves 20% who love the game. I'm not sure how the schedule would work out, I imagine for the first 8/9 home games there would be good numbers, pretty much sellouts, but you have to look beyond that, after a couple of years the novelty factor wears off and if the team is garbage (which could easily happen) the only people who will travel will be the die-hard fans, someone who has a passing interest in the game is not going to travel from say scotland down to london on a Sunday if the team is rubbish and they could watch it on TV here.

So personally I wouldn't agree with it and I'd still support the Packers even if London does get a franchise. I like the NFL the way it is and see no reason to change that, it's growing slowly but if you brought a franchise over here and it flopped, the whole perception of the game for the people who are slowly getting into it would be ruined and we're back to square one.

But sports is ruined by money, so if having a franchise in London/whatever other city outside the US creates millions and millions more for the NFL I guess it will happen.

Haha but it's like me not seeing what's so great about Baseball yet I'd say that's number 4 in the followings in the states?

And a day out at the cricket is a fantastic piss up. It's one of my favourite sports.

Baseball is #2 in the US behind football. The NBA has such a poor product in so many of the markets that it just doesn't get the following unless one of the stars is rolling into town.

My bad about thinking it was #4, my ignorance just assumed NBA/NHL was above it.

I know what you mean Boston, I mean there's alot of people in England who don't see what's so great about it. Test cricket is very difficult to watch, but ODI's and T20 can be great entertainment to watch, and like I say, no matter what sort of game you always guaranteed a good drinking session.

It's each to their own I guess.

It'd be boring if everyone liked the same sports, same team etc. etc.

America and Canada(part of Canada at least) are really the only countries that were once ruled by the English that don't accept cricket (also rugby) as a major sport. In countries like India and the Caribbean cricket is life and in places like Austrailia, South Africa, New Zealand, cricket and rugby are life.

Most countries don't understand the appeal of American football....ha it's a bunch a little girls playing rugby with pads on.

I don't really understand why Goodell is pressing so hard to expand to England which is maybe the hardest country to expand to (it is like expanding cricket back into the American Culture over baseball). He cancelled NFL Europe which was dumb. If anything you open up the NFL internationally like basketball using the NFL Europe. They have leagues like the CEFL and others also each country like Gemany, Italy, France, Austria, Finland and etc have their own independ leagues. You use the NFL Europe as the priemer league. You bring the top young talent from all these other leagues and you open them up to being possibly drafted. That is what I'd do if I was Goodell and really wanted to expand. But won't happen.

OF all the countries in the World outside of america, i think germany would be the one that would most likely accept the NFL. I mean by the end of NFL Europe all the teams had moved to germany but like 3. The people of germany love American Football. I think trying to go to England is a bad idea cause well lets face it they have a form of american football in Rugby. Germany on the other hand has nothing.

A few random thoughts:

Sounds like the Packers and Nick Collins are working towards an extention. Its well deserved but I'd also like to see a little more out of Nick in terms of better tackling and keeping himself healthy. Its a violent position to play and he plays hurt all the time but imagine what he could do at 100% health.

I read that the Packers were looking at offering Kampman a deal averaging $5 million per season. I like Kampman but I don't like him that much. Considering that he struggled a bit in the new defense and is coming off a torn ACL this feels like a couresty contract. Kind of like when we offered Ahman Green a nice sized deal which luckily the Texans offered more.

Free agent wise I don't see the Packers making any big moves. Dunta Robinson is a bit intriging but he's going to get overpaid and has steadily regressed since his rookie season.

Willie Parker could be that speed compliment to Ryan Grant that we've been lacking. It would have to be at the right price though and there could be teams like the Texans, Seahawks, Eagles, and/or Redskins to contend with.

This draft is going to be key for us. We're close to being an anual competitive team so I'd love to see TT take some initiative and move accordingly to grab a key player that he thinks can be a difference maker for us. Be it an OT or OLB or whomever.

No he couldn't. Willie Parker is done. He doesn't have that top speed anymore either. If we're going to sign a washed up running back I'd much rather have Westbrook or Tomlinson, but the draft is a better option than any of them.

Thanks Mr. NFL GM.

You've been a big fan of the rolling eyes lately.

Willie Parker is done though, especially as a speed back. If we want to have a speed compliment with Grant the draft is definitely the better option because the player will be fresher, have more potential and be cheaper than Willie.
