Packers Flex Schedule Is Screwing Northwest Wisconsin Packers Fans
It is rare in this day and age that there is a situation where your team is not playing on television in your state. I just had this happen to me yesterday actually when finding out Marquette will be playing on the Pac-12 Network. No one gets the Pac-12 Network here so that game will have to be unearthed somewhere, likely illegally. It is even rarer to have your football team not have a game on in your state. But for Packers in the far northwestern part of the state, that is the case at the moment. Right now, they will be showing Vikings-Cowboys instead of Packers-Colts.

Let’s be clear, there are Vikings fans in that part of the state. Just like in the southern part of Wisconsin, you see some Bears fans. But that area should be completely for Packers fans, not Vikings fans. That is really rough if you’re a fan there without DirectTV or RedZone. You cannot even go to a bar (I guess you could) considering what’s going on in the state with COVID-19. This is all because Vikings-Cowboys aren’t good football teams. That was supposed to be the only 3:25p game then they flexed the Packers to that spot to avoid that.
I do believe the local networks can choose which games to show so if you live in one of those cities, maybe, dial-up your local FOX network and make sure they put the Packers on.
