So some guys in Cali and Arkansaw own packers season tickets....I wonder if they even go to a game.
I think the Packers bylaws need to be changed so only WI and those in bordering states can be season ticket holders.

I disagree...I'm sure they go to games...if not, if they have been in the family for some time, it's their choice to renew and be apart of Packer tradition...that's what makes the Packers great, is the national attention...not just local young lad.

They have 13 tickets, so Im sure they probably go to a game or 2, maybe let family use them, but it's pretty clear to me that these brothers use them primarily as a source of income.

To me it kind of looks like the dad was a big time packer fan and used them, but once he died, the brothers just sell make money off of them now. Otherwise, why would the dad put in provisions about how much % each guy got from sales.

I think that is only half true. I am willing to bet that these guys go to games. 13 tickets, 8 games equal $$$$ but still, I bet they go.

its still a hike from even Arkansas to the game...I'd bet money they go to 2 games a year at the absolute most and playoff games if they buy tickets...no way a dude is going from Cali 8 times a year to GB just to watch the packers...even the most diehard fans would have a VERY hard time doing that...especially with Sunday/Monday games and work...I just don't see it

well i dont' think they go to all 8 or anything but people travel all the time to go to games. I went to dallas 2 years ago and nashville last year and just bought tickets for arizona this year.

the guy in california is whining that he isnt getting the whole 10,000 that he should be getting which would be his cut if sold at the max price listed in the artical covering the face value which says to me he doesnt travel across the country to go to packer games very often

Should it really matter where they come from? If they choose to purchase season tickets for travel planes, that should be their decision. It's business one way or another. They are adults who can make their own decisions. I do understand some of the locals who would like to have season tickets too but there has to be an equal chance at that. Or if not, just purchase individual tickets. That way then if there is a game you can't make it to, you actually save money vs. having season tickets that end up going to waste because you couldn't use them.

I bought indoor club tickets for the Lambeau Field Rededication game from a lady in Fla.
Her folks were from GB and were about 90 I guess. her Bro was in LA and she in Orlando.
They each fly back for a game and sell the others to cover the trips cost home for them.

Good deal if you got it going for you..

I think it is quite common out there.
