  1. I have upper deck tickets on the 5th row on the home side and they cost 79.00 before taxes. I'm not sure where you are coming up with the 100.00 for upper deck. The 100 level seats are 99.00 for the most part.

    Yeah, others have hinted at what I was getting at with the taxes and preseason added in.

    I get it. I enjoyed being a season ticket holder. I liked when the tix would come in the mail, looking at who was on each ticket, the excitement of the upcoming season...all of that. But I just realized that I could sit in a lot of different sections, and get better seats for the same price buying in the aftermarket. I don't begrudge anyone for wanting to be a season ticket holder. It just wasn't enough for me after a while. And for anyone who claims that people are not as diehard for giving up season tickets, I call shenanigans.

  2. I was a season ticket holder, and now I'm an ex season ticket holder. It used to be about 100/ticket to sit upper deck. I can sit lower deck for the same or club for 150 sometimes, and I don't have to pay for preseason. To me, it was a simple decision from a money standpoint. I used to try to convince my self that season tickets were worth it in case the team got better. But truth is, even if the team gets better, there are 91K seats, and I'll always be able to get a seat. Always.

  3. So I guess Green Bay is not run by a bunch of greedy SOBs for issuing fake stock certificates to raise $70 million and give the "stockholders" a certificate worth absolutely nothing. Redskins fans jump all over Snyder for making money to run the team but it's OK for Green Bay to scam it's fans for $70 million. All the NFL teams are run by billionaires trying to make money from their franchise. Snyder is not much different. Snyder haters need to realize that.

    Those certificates are not fake at all. They cost $200 back in 1997, and it entitles you to go to the shareholders meeting in July every year. You get to tour the facility, and you get to vote for the board of directors. And I'm not sure where you got the 70M figure from, because they only raised 24M. (My sister-in-laws brother is a stockholder and goes to the annual meeting)

    BTW that money went for redeveloping Lambeau Field.
