America’s team? Packers are ‘people’s team,’ Kaye writes

Over the years, UW-Green Bay Prof. Harvey Kaye has often written — for major national outlets — about the way the community-ownership model makes the Green Bay Packers one of the greatest institutions in all of professional sports. His latest, “The People’s Team: Why Progressives Should Back the Green Bay Packers,” repurposes some of those earlier writings. The topic is particularly timely, Kaye notes, in the wake of Green Bay’s victory over the Dallas Cowboys and their mega-rich, mega-ego owner Jerry Jones. Kaye’s column is posted at the Campaign for America’s Future website.
