Walker proposes plan to help fund Bucks arena Submitted: 01/27/2015

MILWAUKEE - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says the state will help the Milwaukee Bucks pay for a new basketball arena with $220 million in bonds that would be paid for by projected growth in income taxes from NBA players.

Walker said Tuesday the "Pay Their Way" proposal would protect the state's taxpayers while keeping the team in Milwaukee. A new arena could cost roughly $500 million.

New owners bought the team in April and have promised to contribute $150 million toward the new arena. Former owner and ex-U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl has promised $100 million of his own money to help replace the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

Walker says Bucks players and visiting teams generate about $6.5 million currently, but that total is expected to grow.

GREEN BAY - The Packers will head to the NFC Championship game for the first time since their Super Bowl run in 2010.

Of course, a lot of the credit will go to Aaron Rodgers, but Rodgers and the Packers would not be headed to Seattle without the pass protection of the offensive line.

The line's protection became even more crucial when Rodgers hurt his calf muscle in the next to last game of the regular season.

"At this point of the year everyone is nicked up, everyone's got something going on," Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga said. "He's just like the rest of us out there battling. We're doing it for each other. It's the playoffs. That's what it's about. Playing for each other, trying to get the job done. That's what it's about."
