Green Bay being a tiny market is largely irrelevant because the NFL's revenue sharing equalizes the gaps you see in the likes of MLB and the players don't have the overriding desire to be in big urban centers like the NBA stars. The Packers have also recrafted their relationship with Green Bay as being a version of how a college team is the biggest show on earth in a similarly sized college town. If the team ever had a long term dark age like it did from 1968 to 1991 again, with Black players having some police run ins in the mid 1980s that made many media members question the viability of the team in Green Bay long term with either Inside Sports or Sport suggesting the team base itself in Milwaukee and only go to Green Bay on game days, then perhaps the situation might be different. However, for now it is seen as a place where a guy can go and contend for Super Bowls even if the number of Super Bowls in the Favre/Rodgers era is three and none in over a decade.
