Packers ask for fan input on expanding Lambeau Field

The Green Bay Packers have 81,000 people on their season-ticket waiting list, and Lambeau Field has a maximum capacity of 72,928. So even if all the season-ticket holders were to give up their seats, there still wouldn’t be enough room for everyone who would want to take their places.

With that in mind, it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to add some seats to Lambeau Field — something the Packers are reportedly considering.

The Associated Press reports that the Packers will hold focus groups in Milwaukee and Green Bay to discuss expanding Lambeau Field. The Packers sent an invitation to certain fans asking them to share “thoughts and opinions on possible new seating opportunities at an expanded Lambeau Field.”

That doesn’t necessarily mean an expansion is going to happen any time soon, however, as a Packers spokesman said no plans to make changes to Lambeau Field are imminent.

Lambeau’s most recent expansion was completed in 2003.

    No doubt they’re going to end up losing some seating capacity on account of the new XXL seats the modern fat-ass Packer fan requires.

    I hear there are some seats in Minnesota they could use…

    Well, with Brett Favre and his Ego gone, they will have at least an additional 15,000 Sq Ft to work with in the stadium.

    I got to check out a game at this place

    Why not simply require an IQ test.
    If you have an IQ, you get tickets — that would greatly reduce the number Sconnies who would qualify to be able to go…

    Hope the Vikes get another re-dedication game at Lambert. The last one sent the fans Packing in the third quarter.

    10 boxcars full of chemical fertilizer along with whatever combustibles you need to set them off. That is my suggestion for “expanding Lambeau Feild”. I could add it would be a nice half time feature if the organization is inclined to go along.

    Ah yes, one of the “perks” of owning “stock” in the Packer franchise.
    In case you missed it packer fans, that is dripping with sarcasm.

  12. Hap says: May 21, 2010 3:59 PM

    It wasnt longh ago they made changes to Lambeau. They’re gonna do something again ?

  13. Evpimp says: May 21, 2010 3:59 PM

    First on the list
    Bigger seats for there season ticket holders fat asses!
    Second on the list!
    More people to bring food to the fat asses in the stadium so they dont have to get up!
    Last but not least
    A bucket for every fat ass so they can mix up all there food and beer and stuff it in ones fat face
    ahhh the life of a Packer Fan!

    Following this request, an ad. was placed in the paper for a gunman to help make a few holes in the building to begin expansion on Lambeau Field.
    It was later taken out after they were told that a construction crew could do the same job much more efficiently and safely.

    Packers tried to hold a “focus group”, but couldn’t find 25 people in the state able to focus.

    Hell with that plan the stadium will be half full.

    Ahhhhh….so that’s how Minnesota does it! Thanks for clearing that up. I was always wondering why less than 50% of the tickets sold to Vikings games were to season ticket holders. Burn.

    If the genius above would have read the actual article they would have found that by adding seats they are looking to increase the amount of people they get into the stadium not the amount of fat asses douchebaggery can notch on the bedpole. Probably a queens fan who will soon have to travel to LA to watch them play.

  19. Cincinnasty says: May 21, 2010 4:07 PM

    With all the new staduims going up everywhere and Lambeau being so old when is money and greed going to trump tradition in this town and be the topic of conversation? This also goes with Chicago’s Soldiers field…

    They need more beer guys at Lambeau Field. I swear they had like 2 or 3 vendors walking around. It seemed like nobody was drinking at the game. I thought I was in the Twilight Zone.
    Bunch of beady eyed sniveling Packer fans with your fat sweaty wives. Leave the cattle at home next time. I paid good money for my tickets on Craigslist dammit, get some real seats in that dump. No good looking women at ALL in that whole stadium. Seriously, I saw maybe 1 or 2 I would give the D to. The ones I saw had a pale lifeless appearance. Yuck!

    #1 fan input: “space out the seat numbers a little more so our fat asses can fit”

  22. se18a29 says: May 21, 2010 4:16 PM

    Either way the pukers will suck with Mrs. Rodgers.

  23. timegambit says: May 21, 2010 4:16 PM

    I think I’ll open a “Thinking Cap,” store in downtown GB for the flood of ignerts sure to be in the market for ‘em.
    I heard the best idea they could come up with was Underground Seating, but before they could see the flaw in their logic 1562 fans, workers and pedophiles were buried alive.
    Ted Thompson was seen running from the scene screaming, “Here we go again!!!”

    “The Green Bay Packers have 81,000 people on their season-ticket waiting list”
    Keep in mind that a percentage of the waiting list are Viking fans that are resigned to the fact that they will lose their franchise in two years. They’re more than welcome, though, and I’m sure they’ll find the stadium experience an upgrade over the Metrodump. As an added bonus, they’ll get to see a trophy case that actually…you know…contains trophies.

  25. Passrusher76 says: May 21, 2010 4:19 PM

    Yeah the seats will all have to be about 4 feet wide to accomodate their fans. Maybe they all need to get gift certificates for Jenny Craig.

    put seats on the jumbo-tron. oh they dont have one of those????

    Packer post about expanding our stadium because our fan base is too large to hold all the people eager to go to games..
    Vikings posts are about the team moving to Los Angeles.
    Ok.
    If I were a Vikes fan, i’d probably let this one go and not say too much.

  28. Bordner says: May 21, 2010 4:24 PM

    A lot of bitter queens fans here – sorry our QB didn’t play better for you last year.

  29. Pervy Harvin says: May 21, 2010 4:25 PM

    Seriously, how can you get any input from a bunch of drunken tools called Packer fans??
    Just put a giant 4-H cattle barn in the parking lot so the fat,drunk and stupid male fans can tie their cow old ladies to an oat feeder.It’s a mans game anyhow….

  30. Sourdough says: May 21, 2010 4:26 PM

    It sure is cute to see Packer & Viking fans bickering back and forth.
