Legendary senior writer Jclombardi says Packers are ESPN’s best sports franchise.
The Super bowl champion Packers are the best team in the NFL. Now, according to ESPN the Magazine, they are also the best franchise in professional sports. The magazine, in this week’s issue, put the Packers atop their annual “Best Franchises In Sports” rankings. ESPN ranked franchises based on eight categories: (1) Bang for the buck (2) Players (3) Fan relations (4) Affordability (5) Stadium experience (6) Ownership (7) Title track and (8) Coaching. With over 70,000 fans polled for the rankings, the Packers finished first in “stadium experience”, tied for “title track”, fourth in “bang for the buck”, and number five in “coaching” and “ownership.”
