    There are several things in play that caused this issue and the weather is just one. There are many situations like my families season ticket situation. We have 6 season tickets that 3 sets of families pay for. (relatives) I usually manage the playoff ticket ordering and etc for all 3 families and we've always sent in for them. With the Packers now holding the playoff cash for 2014 season tickets, instead of returning it if they don't get in, that turned the entire process on its ear. Now I would need to "play accountant" to keep track of what everyone paid and owes. It's already an issue at times as there are questions about fees and costs and the pricing and now you add to that this situation where they are keeping your cash? I don't think that was a good idea.

    The other issue that few are talking about is that there are many more seats to sell these days! 30% more seats with the expansion. That's nothing to shake a stick at.

    In general I don't think Packer fans are any less supportive than in the past. I just think this was the perfect storm of issues all coming together. We're good! :)

    Obviously it's not going to black out.

    But what FCC rule are you referring to?

    Again, just to clarify...this needs to be served as a wake-up call to change the season ticket holder policy AS WELL AS re-shuffle season ticket holders who reguaraly sell their seats. No one knows where the true number lies, but make no mistake, there are plenty of people who would gladly take season ticket privelages and not abuse them as a certain percentage of current season ticket holders do.

    It seems to me they sold out their stadium while making it hard as possible for scalpers.

    Well I was supposed to be going until I found out Saturday night my buddy was going to back out. Got a room at Spring Hill Suites next to Favre's Steakhouse for $100/night back in mid November. Would've been able to get a $200 round trip flight and face value tickets. Honestly been so bummed this week haven't felt like posting. It's funny, a lot of folks talk about how much they hate cold weather games, but I've never been to a game at Lambeau when it was over 25 degrees and I wouldn't have it any other way.

    I don't know who falls into the category of abusers, but here is my stance ... I will always use my three Gold package games myself and will never sell them to anyone. Ever. I will always go to those games. But I will never buy playoff tickets. Not even to sell them for a profit, which, as we all just saw ... will no longer work!

    Ditka on Sports Center said he was surprised the Packers had trouble selling out and called the Packer fans "fickle".
