Packers need to build a whole new stadium

Standard

The Green Bay Packers in recent years have done some major reconstruction to Lambeau Field and according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, via Pro Football Talk, the Packers are again looking to expand Lambeau Field.

The reality is that they need a whole new stadium.

The problem lies in the waiting list for Packer’s season tickets as the list is over 88 thousand long.

Annually only 126 season tickets change hand, which means the waiting list is 35-40 years long.

That means the only true way to relieve the waiting list is to build a stadium that can house 100 thousand fans.

Currently Lambeau Field’s capacity is 72,928, which means that a increase of to 100 thousand would decrease the list to 60 thousand and would most likely see a higher turnover rate.

In the end, something needs to be done quickly.

Williams has a tough decision

Standard

Former Buffalo Bills and current Washington Redskins offensive tackle Mike Williams has been recently diagnosed with blood clots near his heart, which will force him to miss the entireĀ  National Football League season.

The reality is Williams has a tough decision to make.

Williams has had weight problems in the past and now it looks like it has caught up with him.

The fact of the matter is that if Williams doesn’t want to die he will need to completely change his eating habits and will need to exercise more, and needs to lose weight.

The last part is where the problem lies for Williams and his future in the NFL as teams want their offensive tackles to be a little over 300 pounds.

Unfortunately, that is the way the NFL, but lets face it the whole culture of offensive lineman being so big is wrong and they shouldn’t be required to weigh so much.

In the end, this is most likely the end of Williams’ career.
