    The team in Milwaukee before the Brewers was the Milwaukee Braves who moved to Atlanta in 1965. Milwaukee had no MLB team until 1970 when the financially trouble Seattle Pilots were sold and moved to Milwaukee - becoming the Brewers.

    Since 1970, through the 1980's, and continuing today, the Brewers are the MLB team in Milwaukee.

    this is a stressful question with the aid of fact it is so subjective. in case you seem at which team performed greater valuable final season, this isn't any contest that the Packers exceeded expectancies, together as the Vikings performed much greater poorly than predicted. If the question have been worded greater precisely as to show "Which team is greater proficient" or "Which team is greater probable to win greater video games" then the question turns right into slightly greater trouble-free to reply to. Assuming you mean to invite "Which team will win greater video games in 2007", commonly you may seem at 2 issues. A team's Quarterback (surely the main important to offensive fulfillment) and the gang's protection. this is a no brainer surprising now that Brett Favre is a mythical quarterback and the suitable historic participant on the two communities, even even though it is likewise no secret that maximum folk believe him to be previous his top in skills and that his over-self belief now and back hurts his team greater suitable than it enables. on the different hand, the Vikings for sure have a greater valuable protection than the Packers, and their run protection became so dominant that maximum communities chosen to %. aside their in any different case ordinary bypass protection to the factor that it became rated close to the backside of the entire league. no one is acquainted with for specific how nicely Viking QB Tarvaris Jackson will carry out in 2007, or perhaps if if or no longer their proficient offensive line will gel and allow Brad Childress's west coast offense to develop. yet given the two communities loss of presence in the loose agent industry, that is secure to anticipate that the hassle-free answer is that the Packers could obtain an exceedingly careful nod with the aid of fact the present "greater valuable" team, as they earned it in 2006. (even although Minnesota is probable the greater proficient team and in a greater valuable place to be triumphant.) The 2007 NFL Draft will go an prolonged way in direction of answering this question.
