Go Ahead, Give Up Your Season Tickets

Packers tickets

I'll take your season tickets, but not these tickets because these seats suck.

On Friday, the Green Bay Packers announced that they’re raising ticket prices for the 2010 season. That’s right, an additional $8-10 per ticket.

Of course, most Packers season ticket holders were PISSED!

Well, I have a simple solution for you – don’t renew your season tickets, you whiny prick.

My old man has been on the season ticket list since 1979. Several years ago, he was finally given the chance to pick up the Gold package, which he decided to turn down in order to wait for the Green package.

I told him it was a good decision – the Green package season ticket holders get more games. I also told him that when he finally does get those tickets that he should amend his will so that my name is on them when he passes away. Give the houses to my brother, give the land to my sister, just make sure I get the fucking Packers tickets.

So, if you’re one of the assholes complaining about having to spend a few hundred extra dollars for tickets this year, I have two things to say to you.

1. Packers tickets are a value compared to other sporting events. You’re maybe paying $83 per ticket. Do you have any idea how much it costs me to get good seats at Lakers game? North of $100, I can tell you that, and you can double that at playoff time. Christ, the Bears, Vikings and Lions even have higher ticket prices than the Packers and all three of those teams suck a fucking dick in one form or another.

2. If you’re still not convinced and want to piss and moan, then see my suggestion above. I’ve been waiting my entire life for season tickets, and I’ll gladly pay whatever they cost with smile on my face. If you don’t want to, then fucking relinquish them so someone who gives a shit can go to the games.

    people complain when the price of ANYTHING increases. It’s not Packer season ticket holders that are to blame. People in general do not like to pay more for things. So, lets say you smoke or drink coffee and that price increases to over 10% of the price you use to pay. You’d be upset.

    And, it’s no coincidence that the ticket price was increased the same year that the NFL is looking at an uncapped year for salaries. GB like any other team is going to raise ticket prices. It’s a logical conclusion.

    Now, if your blog post had been more intelligent you would have pointed this out. But, no you sound like a bitchy 14 yr old that only has enough balls to post comments on the internet.

      You state the obvious and also miss the point entirely. To the first point, most people who read this blog are smart enough to know the things you stated, and therefore, we don’t have to explain every minor detail. They’re intelligent football fans. To the second, either shut the fuck up and pay the increase or give up your tickets. The same thing applies to smoking. If you don’t like the price point, then quit. It’s that simple.
