The Detroit Lions were eliminated from the playoffs on Sunday. Some of their fans got their playoff tickets in the mail on Tuesday anyway.

We’d laugh real hard, but some Green Bay Packers fans are probably getting their playoff tickets right about now too.

And that’s obviously going to be a waste of money.

Like the Packers, the Lions make their fans pay for playoff tickets up front. And you’re paying for them before you know whether the team is going to be in the playoffs or not, in most cases.

My old man got season tickets this year after 36 years on the waiting list. He got a notice in the mail about a month ago asking him to buy playoff tickets — three games.

So if you want Packers’ playoff tickets as a season ticket holder, you’re paying for three games’ worth. Because the shit birds in the organization need your money. Even though this Packers team is going nowhere near the NFC championship game.

And even if they did, it obviously wouldn’t be held in Green Bay. The Packers organization doesn’t care about that, though.

And do they give that money back to you if the Packers don’t make the playoffs or don’t have three home games?


They give you a credit on the money that you’re going to throw at them in the future.

    People buying playoff tickets before knowing whether or not their team will make the playoffs should understand the risks of doing so. Anything can happen. Rodgers ain’t invincible, and it was only a matter of time before he went down and killed a season. So you really have nobody to blame but yourself for purchasing the playoff tickets. And even then, we have a clear shot at the playoffs. Stop bitching.

    No one knows for sure if we are going to make the playoffs or not. And no one knows what we will do if we do make them. So far this has been an extremely odd and unpredictable season. I don’t think too many people expected us to still be in it at this point in time. Especially, after Rodgers went down and out. If Rodgers doesn’t make it back to play this week, our chances are slim to none. But never say never in the world of the NFL. Many on the posters on this site should have learned that lesson by now. It ain’t over till it’s over. I still have faith in the Green and Gold. GO PACK GO!!! All the way to the SB please. :)

    GO PACK GO!!

    I’m sick of the never ending pessimism from 66% of Packer Nation. Like cd4 and countless others have stated throughout history “It ain’t over till’ it’s over.” This is the “new” NFL, like it or not, and parity has destroyed the ability for any clear cut powerhouse team to emerge, with a few exceptions. How many pre-season Super Bowl favorites have actually went in to win the Lombardi in recent years.

    I can show you an article from late last season where Whitlock had said that Baltimore wouldn’t even make the playoffs, and several others that said the Broncos were a lock to win it all.

    Every front office’s goal in this league is to just make it to the post season, never mind how you get there. Everyone is 0-0 in January. A chip and a chair, man. I don’t give a fuck what our chances look like, all I care is that we have a chance. GO. PACK. GO!!!

    Poor Lions…but then again, they deserve it.

    Hey, let’s just beat the Bears and see what happens… I didn’t think we had a chance at beating the Cowboys, and the Pack surprised us, so what the hell do I know? Just get into the playoffs and extend the season…It’s all about making the off season a few weeks shorter. Fuck the Bears and the horse the rode in on….
