    And why are you still keeping this alive?
    You are whining about nothing. There is no story here.
    You started the thread about one dumb topic and then when you found out the Bears are not the only playoff team that was not accepting ticket orders from outside the local area you tried to make something else out of it.

    You created a pointless thread and will not let it go no matter how wrong you are about it.

    I'm not whining. I'm also not the one who is claiming its a 'non issue' The whining is from YOU. You claim this to be a non issue, yet continue to post?

    Hypocrite.

    I like that little spin you tried towards the end, how does it feel? I'm referring to it slapping you in the face. Deet Da Dee! Deet Da Dee! Deet Da Dee! :whippin: :whippin: :whippin: :whippin: :whippin:

    About 10% of ticket holders not showing up?? For a play off game againest a team they SHOULD beat?? On a good weather day?? Wow!! I never thought I'd see that, even in Chicago. I just find it hard to comprehend. Why didn't these "fans" sell their tickets, if nothing else? Weird.

    Did ya read the thread gramps? The "fans" never got the tickets. The brokers were trying to price gouge and no one went for it. Really simple.

    So they bought tickets for say 800 each and just ate the costs instead of selling them for say 200 each to atleast recoup SOME of their overhead?


    I'm sure brokers are a lot smarter than that.

    Well, I'm sure that no game this season has had any mentionable amount of no-shows, even the 15 degree minnesota game, so why dont you go ahead and use your pee-little wisconsin brain and put two and two together.

    Still.....the ticket brokers had to get the tickets from SOMEONE, right? So some "fans" had to sell their tickets to the brokers in the first place. Thus, these die hard Bear fans didn't want to bother with a playoff game. That STILL shows that at LEAST almost 7000 of their loyal fans didn't go to the game, and no one wanted to take their place.
    Really simple.

    A VERY large percentage of GB season ticket holders sell their tickets every game to make money. Every team has this happen.

    The missing 6k fans during a PLAYOFF game?
    Isn't that about 8-10% of the stadium?
    Suppose the great argument is 'lambeau is empty right now' ... sure sure but bet ur *** if it was a playoff game it'd be jam packed and thousands of fans would be there 8hrs before kickoff.

    The Packers have filled seats for their playoff games, regular season games, preseason games hell even the inter scrimmage game gets a full house.

    As it may happen to other teams, I don't remember reading about it regarding any other team during the playoffs.

    Yes, some DO sell them. But in a playoff game you can GUARENTEE that in Green Bay there wouldn't even be 500 empty seats!
    In GB, some sell them, others would snap them up like GOLD! Thats the difference, period.

    Guess we will have to wait a few years to test your theory - a playoff game, and IN gb no less.

    Don't have to wait. Just check the last 40 plus years, and you will see PLENTY of home playoff games for the Packers, and it proves what I'm saying.
    The Bears of course don't have many playoff games in the last 40 years to make a fair comparison.
