This was asked of Roger Goodell when he was over for the Jags / Eagles game. His answer was that home team do not want to give up a Packers game as they know it will sell out, but the league it looking at "incentivising" to encourage a team to give up a Packers game.



In other words the NFL will throw ever larger amounts of money at a team who will eventually cave in and give up their Packers game. As always with the NFL it is always about the money.
