"Still stinging from the political battle over funding" for the new Brewers ballpark, "key" legislators and WI Gov. Tommy Thompson said Friday that the Packers "might have a tough time getting state funding for a proposed Lambeau Field expansion," according to Jones & Walters of the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL. Packers President Bob Harlan has said the team might seek financial support from the state to help fund the expansion. Thompson: "They'd have to have a very good proposal before it would pass." Assembly Majority Leader Stephen Foti, noting the Packers' ongoing stock sale: "The Packers can afford it themselves. That was the purpose of the stock offer" (JOURNAL SENTINEL, 12/6).
