Packers Family Night tickets

Because again, of course. Those people that lined up on Monday for tickets to the Green Bay Packers Family Night scrimmage — some of them are reselling their tickets.

And they’re not reselling them for the $10 they paid. They’re reselling them for a lot more. Check out StubHub. The tickets are available for, at the low end, $18. What’s the high end, you ask? You can get a 50-yard line seat in the second row for $179.

For a scrimmage…

So, all of you high and mighty asshats who suggested I was less than a real fan because I may have insinuated that Family Night is bullshit, what do you have to say now?

That person reselling his 50-yard line tickets for $179, is he a real fan? Must be a better fan than I am because he went and got Family Night tickets. Probably was out there waiting in line at 5 a.m. Probably was displaying his real fandom by doing so. Probably just had a family commitment come up in the past two days so he couldn’t make the scrimmage and thought it best to resell his tickets to another real fan… at 18 times what they actually cost.

So, come on. Let me have it for not being excited about Family Night. Tell me again how I’m not a real fan. And when you do, send me your receipt for those 50-yard line tickets.

          Unbelievable as it is, he’s starting to almost make me miss GeeDubya a bit (Wow, did I just say that). In the red corner you have the incompetent quasi-primate invading multiple countries under false pretense, killing thousands of civilians and troops. In the blue corner you have the disarmingly wily leader of the Hope Brigade arming the ever-pious Al-Queda freedom fighters with chemical weapons in hopes of removing a Russian puppet so he can implant his own surrogate. Now that’s a celebrity death match I’d watch.

          But I digress, only a few weeks ’til pads come on and we get to find out how beastly these rookies really are, it truly is Christmas in July. I’m so excited, just so excited, oh so excited, very excited, it’s exciting, so exciting, so excited. So excited.

    As this problem relates to season ticket holders, the Cubs audited season ticket holders. Those found to simply buy to resell had their contracts revoked. I think this is a great idea. Hard to implement for a one-off deal like this, though.

  2. I’d love to go to family night. I grew up in De Pere but moved to Colorado before they starting doing it. I also have a kid so there’s an incentive for me. But I think it’s ridiculous that people would pay more than $10 to watch a scrimmage.

      I could see up to $20 or $30, I mean you get to visit one of the most historic stadiums in the U.S., a true national landmark, and see possibly the best QB in the history of football, as well as the most storied team in its history, not to mention the chance to get some John Hancock’s; def worth it IMHO.

    I think an audit would be great. As a fan that doesnt live in the green bay area its hard to justify 200-300 a ticket for games. It would be nice if they was a true fan exchange for tickets. i dont mind paying more that ticket price but hate getting gouged

    I’m the guy sellin the 50 yard line tickets. In my defense I thought I had enough meth to last me awhile but I used it all up waitin in line. Sorry I’m not the most organized junky, but like most junkys I’m pretty good at pawning stuff.

    I know plenty of people that go to family night, and all of them said it was a great time. Not my thing, but I can understand bringing young kids there to experience lambeau at a cheaper price.

    We went last year, cause like the guy above we live in CO. We made signs for my kid’s birthday (the next day) and the DBag sitting behind us wouldn’t let us hold them even at chest level, even when everyone else in the stadium was holding up their signs, because it blocked his view. Later during the game, he and his wife took turns stomping off from each other and making a scene. Needless to say, we’ll never go back. Watching practice at 7am was way more fun.

    The dude writing this article is kind of a jack ass. Not because of not liking family night- to each their own- but because of the way you address your readers. time to grow up dude. It’s no wonder I read this site less & less all the time and avoid certain writers. Calling fans out like that is just plain ignorance.

    Don’t blame the sellers. They are just free market entrepreneurs. The buyers set the market.
    I wouldn’t pay it. And the game is useless. I think they even cancelled or shortened it substantially one year due to weather.

    About gouging and what the cubs do, season tickkets, like many contracts of sale, come with terms and conditions. It would be incredibly easy to sell these tickets with terms to prevent people from simply selling these tickets at a huge markup for all their tickets.
    From what I understand, the Cubs singled out of area holders who attended no or few games in person.
    I see far too many purple pukes during Vikings fans, far too many visiting fans on TV. It would help us Packer fans by making the games more afforable, and help the Pack by diminshing the numbers of enemy supporters in our midst.
    To be sure such conditions do not prevent resale outright, or even a majority. They just weed out those who buy the tickets in bad faith, who just bu them frm, say Wichita, KS, never intending to attend a single game, just to gouge.
