Anyone interested in watching the Packers in the following cities.

Green Bay
Wausau
Appleton
Oshkosh
Fon Du Lac
Milwaukee

And all surrounding areas.

That is over half the states population.


But the Packers don't lose fans over 1 blacked out game.


Not sure what you mean? Will there be fans that are livid over the fact that The Packers and their Corporate Sponsors wouldn't buy up 3,000 tickets so 50% of more of the State of Wisconsin can watch the playoff game? I think you are high if you think the answer is no.

Its probably close to 3 million people who wouldn't get to watch the game. Common sense says you'll lose something over that.

As of writing this, I am no longer able to find tickets to the game on Ticketmaster. Appears all is well.

What is wrong with being a Viking fan?

You know ******....red, white and black....red and white,,green and gold, red white and blue.....You should practice loyalty to you school district, state, and country.... In that order. Not too many Americans will be pulling for the cannucks in the olympics if you catch my drift. too many transplants around here for my taste..


While I assume you are being sarcastic.

Who does someone from Wyoming get to cheer for in Pro Sports?


I really hope macandcheese's reponse is sarcasm, but if not;

That kind of fanboy attitude is exactly why I don't cheer for the Packers.

And is also why you will find numerous people from Illinois who can't stand the Bears (I hear their fans can be just as unruly, I am sure it is the same for any sports team's local fans). Same thing with the Vikings.

Just because I live in Wisconsin doesn't make me indebted to the Packers. Heck, its less of the team I can't stand and moreso the fans.

That being said, any type of blackout is bad for the game for any team. Hopefully this doesn't come to fruition as everybody should be able to watch the game.


That kind of fan boy attitude exists with every team so I guess you aren't a fan of any team?

It is this particular reason I prefer to cheer for non local teams. Those people drive me nuts.

Packer corporate sponsors Associated Bank, Fleet Farm & Bellin Health, along with the FOX TV affiliates in Milwaukee, Green Bay & Wausau bought up the remaining 3000 tickets Friday afternoon. The majority of those tickets are being donated to various charities, military families and Green Bay-area high schools. [:-]
