Too Many Hoops

The fine folks that run the Green Bay Packers are always looking for ways to make some money, and find a use for the $200 million building in the tiny town. They scored a proverbial touchdown with the Badger Hockey game this past Saturday, and the new head honcho of the Pack has his eyes on another UW team. Since Lambeau Field is afterall, a football field, why not bring in the UW football team for a game?

Well, UW isn't chomping at the bit to get this done, but it's in the back of their minds. Understandably, they have some contractual obligations, so they just can't move a game from Camp Randall to Lambeau - but how hard could it be to convince another team to give up a home date? College teams do that all the time, especially ones from mid-major conferences going to play in a "big-time" conference stadium. Plus, major colleges pay large sums of money to other smaller schools to give up a home game.

Why is it that good ideas can be so hard to bring to fruition? How come everyone can agree that something is a 'slam dunk', but it never becomes a reality? This example is just one of thousands of good ideas that will never happen. People in charge get paid lots of money to get things done. So why is it that alot of times.... nothing ever gets done?

When I'm in charge, good ideas like this will be implemented immediately.

1. It was $295 mil, not 200.

2. Why is this a good idea?

I agree with Nort, the idea sucks.

Why wouldn't they want to play at Camp Randle? What's the advantage to playing at Lambeau?
