That's a really good question, and I don't know the answer. That would be criminal if it got a lot harder to tailgate in the coming years, that's such a big part of what makes going to the game special. I have to think they know that and will preserve it, but you never know. The NFL is a big money chase, the league and teams are doing everything they can squeeze every penny they can get from fans. But at least through this current administration they've seemed very mindful of holding on to traditions that make this place unique while also trying to make a lot of money and keep up with the rest of the league that way. If you or anyone else out there detects significant changes that way, make sure you let us at the PG/JS/PackersNews know.
Can't give you a good answer. Thompson doesn't churn the bottom of his roster like Wolf did. It's relatively rare that teams help themselves with in-season pickups, but sometimes you can find a stopgap where you have injuries. I do wonder why they didn't sign Spiller, I thought he was a guy who actually could help them a little.
