    They just said on CBS when doing the preview for the GB game that the wind chill at kickoff would be somewhere between -25 and -35. People are going to die out there.

    As a life long Packer fan and WI resident up until last summer I'll add a few things. The people who say Packer fans would laugh at the idea of a dome in GB are dead on, so here: [​IMG] That's just ridiculous.

    For those of you that think the Packers are used to this type of weather you have probably never played sports in that environment. 40 F - 30F, maybe, but at a certain point (probably around 20 F and below) you just can't get used to it and it affects everyone's abilities. Essentially what it does is make the game a test of will.

    I know you don't get used to cold weather but it will take some convincing to get me to believe that someone who has played in lived in cold weather still wouldn't have an advantage over somoene who has never been in it.

    I know there is an arugument that GB deserves the host because of the won-loss record but due to conditions like this in January it takes more than earning it on the field in my opinion and that is coming up with the money to have a a dome stadium like Detroit and Minnessota.

    So how many teams would you disqualify?

    New England, New York, Cleveland, Cincinatti, Chicago, and Buffalo all play outdoors. How about home games in late December?

    As if trying to stay warm in below 0 temperatures, all those players and fans have to deal with 3 minute commercial breaks during every stoppage of play.

    Well, a 90 yard TD will sure warm you up.

    I seriously think something is wrong with Favre. His last few passes have been very dangerous and he has a glazed look in his eyes. I think he has tundra fever.

    I always thought that the big 12 title game should be played in a controlled enviorment. Alamodome or Transworld dome not in freezing tempatures in KC

    It's certainly playing hell with the kicking game.
