Packers Apparently Will Have to Beat Out Every Other NFL Team to Host Draft

OK..How about we throw in a case of Cheese Curds and a few State Fair Cream Puffs..Packers CEO Mark  Murphy told shareholders Monday that every NFL city, plus Canton, Ohio, has bid to host the NFL draft. The Packers have bid for 2019, 2020 and 2021.  The Packers’ Titletown District would play host to the event, with the 10,000-seat Resch Center, which sits across Oneida Street from Lambeau, mentioned as a possibility for the draft itself.The 2014 draft was the last one in New York City, with Chicago hosting in 2015 and 2016. Philadelphia hosted this year. The Cowboys are viewed as the favorites for 2018, although a so-called “Bathroom Bill” in the works for the state’s special legislative session could send the event elsewhere. Kansas City has expressed strong interest in hosting the event in the next few years.
