The city of Green Bay has a population of less than 200,000 but yet the stadium has sold out tickets to every game since Brett Favre was a Packer. Houston Texans haven't had a ticket sellout since they were the Oilers. What the hell, why can't I get tickets?[aiee]

You are wrong.

Green Bay has not sold out every game since Favre. They have sold out every game since 1960. This is so much bigger than any one player.

The Packer draw fans from a lot more than just a city of 200,000. They draw fans from more than just a state of 5 and a half million. They draw fans from more than just the upper midwest. Green Bay as fans all over the US and even the world.

You can get tickets to any game you choose. You simply have to be willing to pay for the privilege.

Green Bay has a population of around 105,000, so yes, lower than your 200,000, but far less than implied. :)

If you can't get tickets you either haven't tried or aren't willing to spend any money.

Sure if you only count the city limits, but the metro area is closer to 300,000.

I guess you don't have to spend money, you can find face value tickets for most of the games outside the stadium. But that's just my experience.

That's the good thing about the US ticket system. Season ticket holders get one ticket per game, over here you get one card which allows you to enter every game. You are not going to give this card to someone else than a close friend, a single ticket you can give to anyone.

Not to mention it's the one of the few stadium visiting fans are excited to see their team play at.

Yeah, and whatever you do, don't count on your Packer buddies from this forum that get playoff tickets and take their son instead of you. [grin1]
