Bill Would Put Packers Games in Every Wisconsin County
When I went to school in Eau Claire, there was always a fear that the Packers games would not be on television. Every now and again, you would see Minnesota Vikings games come close, and there would be potential that the Vikings would be on over the Packers. I do not think it ever actually came fruition where we had to face the Vikings instead of the Packers. Wisconsin senator Tammy Baldwin is reintroducing her ‘Go Pack Go’ bill to congress that would require Packers games to be on every county in the state of Wisconsin. Here’s Baldwin on her bill.
“Every Packers fan across our state should be able to watch every Packers game,” Baldwin in the news release. “My Go Pack Go Act would give Packers fans in every Wisconsin county the opportunity to receive in-state broadcasts, so they can cheer on our beloved green and gold.”
Last year, I wrote about how this bill seemed obtuse to me and contended that she might lose votes because of it (Maybe a bit spicy but that’s the Internet). This year, she’s in office for six years, but the thoughts are still the same. I don’t like Bears and Vikings fans for the most part, but I respect them. There are Bears and Vikings fans around the borders of Illinois and Minnesota. They should get the right to watch their team. The State of Wisconsin tries to force the Packers down everyone’s throat. There is Packers’ signage all over the state. They see it all over the place. There are only a few conflicts a year, and for those games, find a friend with DirectTV.
