  • Ramifications?
    While the Packers are in a three-way tie for first in the NFC North at 5-3. If they go on a skid, their playoff potential could be in danger. Without home playoff games, Green Bay stands to lose out on money, merchandise sales, etc.
    Without cheese, 90% of Wisconsin’s caloric consumption would be gone in a second. This would ultimately be good for the health of Packer fans.
  • Backup Plan?
    Seneca Wallace, who still plays, apparently.
    Sausage and beer.
  • Reaction Upon First Finding Out?
  • Impact On Headwear?
    None? No impact?
    Packer cheese heads would no longer be en vogue.
  • Financial Impact?
    According to TheirNetWorth.com, Aaron Rodgers is worth $95 million.
    According to a Review of Wiconsin's Dairy Industry, Wisconsin cheese brings in $26.5 billion in revenue.
The winner: CHEESE! Cheese is a bigger concern to Wisconsin citizens by a score of 3-2. So next time you’re biting into a big block of cheddar, make sure to thank your lucky stars that the Wisconsin cheese industry is healthy and robust. -Brian Cullen, CBS Local Sports contributor
