These increases will keep us at about the League average in terms of ticket price, which is our goal. We want to be fair to the visiting teams in terms of shared revenue (visiting teams receive one-third of all ticket revenue), but also be as affordable as possible for you. This year, with the opening of the South End, we also wanted to ensure that the pricing for seats in the bowl was coordinated with the pricing for the new seating. We strive to provide value to all our ticket holders and are proud of the fact our gameday experience is consistently ranked first in the NFL. Ticket revenue also is an important resource in our effort to remain competitive in the NFL.

It wouldn't be so bad, as it's not that much per ticket.
It will be passed onto the people buying the tickets from scalpers and ticket brokers.
I haven't been to a game since the Packers last playoff win with Favre as QB. (Against the Seahawks)
I doubt that i will see a game any time soon, so i guess it won't affect me at all.

I'm scaling back my game plans due to cost.
Even though we only live 3 hours from Lambeau and can drive down and back in a day, 2 tickets plus beer and food is approaching 4 bills, oh yeah, gotta throw gas
in there.
I'm cutting it to 1 game and only if I get get an early fall game.
The Lions game this last year was the last winter game I will ever attend.

Care to explain why you won't be going back in the winter? I was there this winter and I would absolutely do it again.

I did this as well a couple of years ago.. the lockout cemented it. I love the stadium experience.. pre-game to me is more of a hassle than anything.. and trying to get out in a reasonable fashion even with the back routes out the west side.. I found that I only needed to attend one game a season.

Since the lockout.. I haven't been there at all on game day.

Couple that with my intensity during the games, I find being in the comfort of my own home watching it on the plasma to be just as enjoyable.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

I just don't enjoy sitting out in the cold anymore.
I have done it for years and it never really bothered me till this year.
Just getting old I guess.

I'm not the biggest fan, either. Cold is one thing, but some of the temperatures at Lambeau are just frigid. It can be fun at times I suppose, but it better be an incredibly exciting game. Otherwise, that cold can really set in. Perhaps it's easier for the folks that actually live in Wisconsin, though.
