    Packers need to keep adding revenue to keep pace with these mega stadiums. At least we arent making huge interest payments I guess.

    We have the oldest stadium in the league I believe, and this makes it even better.

    You guys remember the Niners complaining about Candlestick Park and wanting a brand new stadium? Us Pack fans never have to worry about that! Go Pack Go! They know we'd never trade Lambeau for anything.

    I don't get it....

    Seems like each stadium is torn down and rebuilt after like 10-20 yrs.
    But Lambeau is still there.
    Why is every other stadium rebuilt but Lambeau? Is it built with stronger material?
    It's not like they are built out of wood or cardboard. What a waste of resources and material.

    And don't get me started on how the new ones are re-named as nothing but a goldburn advertisement. Calling it Nike Arena just doesn't have the same ring to it as say Arrowhead Stadium.

    This is pretty sweet news. I posted in the VIP section about the waiting list for club level seats not that long ago, but for anyone else interested the waiting list for club level seats is only 3-5 years. Should make some people pretty darn excited.

    Is great news to hear. Reading the comments on PFT and all the Packers bashers couldn't help but awe at the idea that the Packers themselves are going to pay for this renovation, and I am just salviating at the idea of a stock sale. Got money in the bank for it.

    Much cheaper to build a new one than to reform an old one (if you're going for the kill, to get a state of the art stadium).

    I had season club seats last year. Randomly someone mentioned that they were available, and sure enough they were. Hated the people around me and am too busy this year to commit to going to all the games.

    20 year old behind me one game must of had his first beer. I debated if dealing with him would be worth a lifetime ban from Lambeau, thats how annoyed I was.

    Those seats look like they will be even further away from the football field.
    Only a nut would get any of those seats.
    I understand that a live football experience is awesome, but I just don't see how having those further seats away is going to be beneficial to the fan who wants his/her monies worth.

    No thanx. I'll save tons of money not by switching to Geico, but by not buying any football tickets.

    I wish Lambeau still looked like that. I miss the way the Stadium used to look. My dad took me to my first game when I was four and I have only missed two home games since(except for the Milwaukee games). Memories.
