The Green Bay Packers are a unique franchise in that they are the only one in North America that is a publicly-owned non-profit.
The citizens on Green Bay are literally the owners and the franchise has been a cornerstone in the league and in the city for decades.
However, all of that is coming to a head at the Packers. Their franchise quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been reportedly considering leaving the team. And now, all-pro wide receiver, Davante Adams, has reportedly broken off contract talks with the team.
Eben Novy-Williams of Sportico talked to TheStreet about how the company's public finances could play into its negotiations with Adams and Rodgers.
