If only the NFL hadn't banned Packers-like community ownership, it would be easier to have a team to root for this #SuperBowl.

@ntnsndr The NFL banned that?

I am reading htis article and it is glorious newyorker.com/news/sporting-sc

I can't seem to find where they say it was banned!


@hassan it's in the middle of the article:

"It’s actually written in the N.F.L. bylaws that no team can be a non-profit, community owned entity. The late N.F.L. commissioner Pete Rozelle had it written into the league’s constitution in 1960. Article V, Section 4—otherwise known as the Green Bay Rule—states that 'charitable organizations and/or corporations not organized for profit and not now a member of the league may not hold membership in the National Football League.'"

@nightpool @hassan

Nice find.

So it is written in there.

What *exactly* is the goodness we need to promote the most?

Just what ONE thing can enhence a thing like a co-op?
