Packers sell 126 new season tickets while 83,881 wait

The Green Bay Packers’ season-ticket waiting list is so preposterously long that it almost seems like a waste of time even to put your name on it: Only 126 fans went from waiting list to season-ticket holders this year, while 83,881 names remain on the list.

But don’t tell Tina Dollar-Hibbard it was a waste of time for her father to put her name on the list 40 years ago. She was one of the 126 whose names were called this year, 16 years after her dad died.

I need to decide who I am going to take with me,” she told the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “I’ve had a lot of offers.”

But as the Press-Gazette notes, for every person who gets called, there are hundreds of fans who continue to wait. This year 99.6 percent of season-ticket holders renewed their tickets.

The Packers estimate fans who put their names on the list this year can expect to be called around 2045 or 2050. In the mean time, they’re looking to expand Lambeau Field to help shorten the waiting list. Maybe down to 75,000 names or so.

  1. This provides a feel good story as opposed to those franchises that need to have their players cut a commercial begging their fans to buy PLAYOFF tickets. And the only reason they sold out that PLAYOFF game was due to the oppossing team’s fans.
    I seriously doubt that will ever happen in LA and we will soon find out.

  2. Take note viking fans.
    You can’t even sell out a playoff game without cheating.
    LOSERS!
    PS BrINT deserves you people.

  3. …it isn’t that the Packers are special or the WI fans are so dedicated. Simply put,there isn’t shit to do in that drunken,obese state.Packers,pork and pimento cheese is all they have. Rodgers and Thompson will announce their gay fling surely before another seat becomes available.

  4. The next expansion site should be Milwaukee, easing the pressure of frustrated fans in the region.

  5. Sounds more respectable than Vikings fans that come and go. Most left after 1998 and came back last season…to the same result lmao…what an embarrassing franchise.

  6. It’s great to see that type of passion and loyalty among fans of any team. The Redskins used to have that sort of following.
    I signed up for the Skins ticket waiting list in 1991 and my name got called up in 2002. I’ve had tickets since then and put my son’s name on the list when he was born. I’ve had to reject tickets twice since 2004 for him.
    Snyder has really frittered away the loyalty of the team’s fans. By the time Snyder is done with the team, fans will either be able to walk up for tickets or the team will have moved elsewhere.

  7. If the Packers would take the TENS of thousand tickets away from brokers the wait list wouldn’t be so long. But they won’t

  8. Been on the list since 1991 and my name has moved a whopping 6,918 spots. #51437. 141.27 more years and I’m in!!!

  9. I am number 69,703. When I put my name on the list 4 years ago I was number 75,000 something. I should have those tickets by the time I have great grandchildren. But it’s a better problem to have than worrying about where my team will be playing in two years.

  10. Further proof that there is nothing to do in Green Bay if your sister moves away, there are no more goats to rope, and your parents finally kick your fat, polish sausage eating ass out of the house. There’s probably a tent city, complete with feeding troughs and watering stations, outside of Lamebeau Field where most of the 83K people on the list are waiting to get in. What else would you expect from an area of the country where a 250 pound person is considered anorexic?

  11. If Favre was still with the Packers, all 83,881 people would have tickets. He’s just that damn good.

  12. As a Bears fan, I hate the filthy Pack, but I gotta respect their fans’ loyalty and diligence. I waited about a decade for my Bears season tickets; can’t imagine waiting have of your entire life.

  13. I promise not to post anything negative about Packers fans as long as Boob and Jimmy can reply to this post without mentioning the Vikings.

  14. I wonder how many of those 83,881 are still with us. I am sure that the names of deceased, more times than not, do not get removed from that list. And as old as that list is I bet those numbers are WAAAAAAAY off! But of course the larger that number is the better the cheeseheads fell about themselves…….sad.

  15. There is no reason that thirty or forty thousand seats can’t be added to that stadium. If over 100,000 people can routinely pack college stadiums, why can’t the Packers stadium be near that size?

  16. 83,881 people just waiting to get Packer tickets?!?! That is amazing, and one of the many reasons Viking fans are so jealous of the Packer nation. Eat your heart out haters!!

  17. It took me 3 years to get Colts tickets, I cant imagine waiting 40!! You cheeseheads are unreal

  18. Silly to put your newborn baby on this list and not live to share the games together. The best thing to do is get on the list at the onset of puberty.

  19. The list will only get longer when all of Minnesota has to beg Wisconsin for a team to root for. Problem is people like Cuntra have made us not want their support. Your sure as hell not getting anywhere near any of my six tickets.

  20. Too bad about Tina’s dad. He was looking forward to see what that kid from Mississippi could do with the Packers.

  21. I’ve had season tickets passed down through my family since the 50’s…I am quite fortunate.

  22. It’s one thing for GB to sell out games when the only other place for people to spend money is all you can eat buffets but really the way they’ve been losing money since Favre left you have to wonder if the city will even exist in 2045.

  23. There are currently two sets of season ticket holders for Packer games. When the Packers used to play their games at County Stadium in Milwaukee, that place had their own set of season ticket holders. Those people were given the rights to season tickets once the club moved all its games to Lambeau.
    And so now, there are two season ticket “packages” for Packer games at Lambeau. The Milwaukee based fans have season ticket to three games plus two exhibitions … and the “regular” Lambeau season ticket holders have tickets to the rest.
    So, in theory, one could say the Packers have about 140,00 season ticket holders, with another 83,000 on a waiting list.
    Kinda makes you wonder when the half-assed viking fans are going to step up and at least build a stadium.

  24. It’s sad how many bar owners sit on blocks of season tickets and make big bucks running busses to the games. So individual fans only chance to see a game at Lambeau is to spend the day on a bus with a bunch of slobbering drunks.

  25. Tina’s father Lowell Dollar was called “Johnny”. Not “Lucky” like many other members of the Dollar family.

  26. Man I wish the Lions had that problem…I have sales people bugging me all the time to buy season tickets…If they only reduced the price by 90% it would be worth it…I would rather watch them lose on TV than in person.

  27. Tina had “lots of offers” to accompany her to the games until the guys found out it was a “dead man’s ticket”.

  28. At the current rate it is hundreds of years to move up on the list and get tickets.
    There has to be an incredible expansion of the stadium for somone to get on the list today and have tickets in only 40 years.
    Without expansion it is more like 700 years to get tickets.

  29. Wow !! there must be nothing else to do there ! and yes I live in Tampa bay.. We have a lot of other things to do, like maybe the beach…Lowery park zoo, The Florida Aquarium , not to mention Orlando !!! Hmm , Think I will stay here !

  30. the packers should change the logo from a “G” to a piece of fudge.
    they always pack the fudge

  31. I’m jealous. I can’t think of many places I’d rather spend a sunday in fall than Lambeau! My wife is due in January and I think we’ll put the little one’s name on the list when he/she arrives. Fortunately the baby will be here just in time to see the Pack in the Super Bowl!

  32. @randy
    Do you actually expect us to believe that a city with a beach, zoo, aquarium and another city within driving distance actually exists? Yea right, sounds like some sort of super city to me.
    Here’s an idea- how about you go back to depleting our national resources with your climate controlled life until the bank forecloses on your cookie cutter house that’s probably worth half of what you owe on it? Don’t come back until you have your mind out your @$$ and have realized that most cities in this country offer equal, if not better superior living conditions-

  33. Take note viking fans.
    You can’t even sell out a playoff game without cheating.

    _______________________
    That’s funny, I never equated ticket sales with the quality of the fans. I judge fans by their actions, and a number of Packer fans have been sorely lacking lately. I also remember watching a Packers-Vikings game in 2007. It was being played in Minnesota, yet they still stopped the game to celebrate the Packers QB who broke the career TD record while kicking the stuffing out of the Vikings. How did the Vikings fans respond? They cheered him. In my mind, that is classy. I do agree with you on one point, however. It seems fitting that after so many of the Packer fans that used to idolize him (more than any player deserves) now take every opportunity to trash him he ended up playing for the rival team whose fans took the time to celebrate his accomplishments even when he was beating them. I also find it amusing that he ended up leading the Vikings to a sweep of the Packers. Then again, as an Eagles fan, I do have a rather sarcastic sense of humor.

  34. I guess it’s nice that there’s 1 thing to do in a place where the state slogan is “Incest Is Best” but seriously how do these people on the the waiting list think they’ll ever get tickets? What can be the life expectancy in a state where the average weight is 300 lbs?

  35. I wonder what would take longer…the wait for Packer season tickets, or the wait Pervy, twizzlystick, and cuntra are suffering through for their testicles to descend?

  36. This just in….. no one cares, get over it packers fans. Maybe in Wisconsin everything revolves around the “Pack”, but the rest of America doesnt care…. and btw Vince Lombardi was over rates and the power toss was a bush league play!

  37. I love the comment section of some of these posts. Kudos to twizzlystick for making me LOL right off the top.

  39. If the Vikings would start Tavaris Jackson at QB that guy StupidRedneck would take his welfare checks and buy season tickets.

  40. Hey Pervy:
    The obesity rate between Wisconsin and Minnesota varies by a whopping .7%. Wisconsin = 26%, Minnesota = 25.3. You have your fair share of cows in your pathetic state. MOOOOOO!

  41. I bet the waiting list is really just a police sting to catch sheep molesters and donut thieves.

  42. I love how Packer fans hang on this stat and think it makes their team and loyalty look any better.
    I’ve been to Lambeau for 4 games in the last 7 years, and there was a 50-50 split in fanbase.
    That tells me there is huge amount of scalping going on. Thats loyalty.

  43. Hey Vikings fans, what the hell do you have to do over there in Hooterville that Packer fans don’t have in Bugtussle?
    Some of us that don’t live in either of those back water burgs wonder how you tell the difference.

  44. It’s just amazing how everyone knocks on the packer fans and there loyalty….The truth is, your’all jealous on how his franchise is great for the state and its fans. You mention how everyone is so fat, and there is nothing to do but eat and watch football. Well Mississippi is rated #1 as the obese state in the country, and Wisc. is rated 25th. If you want to talk about football, then talk about it, if you want to talk about the beach and the zoo, and sewing, well go to that blog….(Idiots)

  45. Hey Viking fan, My name is not even on the list but I guarantee i’ll have tickets to Lambeau before the Vikes make it to a Super Bowl!!!!!!!

  46. “The obesity rate between Wisconsin and Minnesota varies by a whopping .7%.”
    ——————————
    I’m pretty sure you misread that, it’s more like 70%. Waddle outside and look around if you don’t believe me.

    Like, never.

  49. The majority of Packer fans commute from Milwaukee. Ever see the caravans on Interstate 43 on Sunday mornings?

  50. If Packer fans cut down their obesity rate just 10%, they’ll be able to fit 10,000 more fans onto those bleachers.

  51. Has any team in any sport ever played their first 50 seasons without winning it all besides the Vikings? Do the Vikes have any company on this list?

  52. HHMmmm, interesting—Contra’s here, haven’t seen PackFansLikeSheep in a few days and this twizzlystick shows up out of nowhere
    We all know that Contra was PFLS—Nice try dude. Oh, and by the way–the Donut thieves are in Seattle.

  53. Twizzlestick
    If Tina Dollar-Hibbard is as you described Bubba would like to meet her sounds like his kind of woman.

  54. Obviously, the NFL’s finest franchise.
    Fan support
    World Championships
    Television ratings
    A city of 105,000 sells 72 thousand tickets to every game and has over 80,000 on the waiting list. It puts cities like Los Angeles to shame.
    Nothing is more important than the NFL. Otherwise you would not be reading this blog.

  55. why is so easy to get a ticket? I don’t miss the packer viking game at that donkey town. All your die hards sell out left and right. LMAO

  56. How many people are on the queens season ticket waiting list? Oh yeah, that’s right! ZERO!!!!!!! looks like were about 83000 ahead of them in that department! Not to mention the 12 world titles lead we got on them as well! Going to be hard to catch up to that one since the team only has 2 more years to live! Can’t wait to see that state of losers lose yet another sports team! I will laugh, laugh, laugh.

  57. bigrig, seriously
    NHL, Gopher Football, Gopher Hockey, NBA,,,,,plenty of wild die hards that are not going into two sets of seasons nfl & nhl. You have to make a choice unless you have a trust fund. Most don’t.

  58. So 126 peopel get to see the Packers def get torched for 30 points a game at home? I bet most fo them are taking thier sisters with them to the game!

  59. Here are the teams in each major North American sport (football, basketball, baseball and hockey) who have gone the longest without ever winning the major championship of their league in any variation of their team, since inception:
    Texas Rangers (1961)
    Phoenix Suns (1969)
    Minnesota Vikings (1961)
    L.A. Kings and St. Louis Blues (1968)

  60. bluestree walks into a hair salon.
    He asks his stylist “how can I make hair grow on my chest?”
    The stylist replies, “Go home and put Vaseline on your chest real thick…”
    That night bluetree does as the stylist told him. His gay partner climbs into bed and reaches over to hold him and feels the slime on his chest..he says, “What the hell is this?”
    Bluestree replies, “The stylist told me that if I put Vaseline on my chest hair would grow..”
    His gay lover replies, “You stupid son of a bitch, if that were the case you would have a damn pony tail hanging out of your ass.”

  61. With that many people on the waiting list, why not make half-season packages, or single-game pairs of seats available instead? Gets more people on the waiting list to at least one game.

  62. Everyone from a different state other than Minnesota is fat, incestual and stupid. Minnesota is nothing but fine women, high scale entertainment, and the best food one can find. Why everyone doesn’t live there is just baffling.
    Funny thing is, half the people from Minnesota grew up in Wisconsin. Most Minnesota folks that grew up there move the hell out because it sucks more than Favre in NFC championships.

  63. A recent scientific poll – taken by an unbiased Wisconsin Dairy Farmer – revealed an astonishing 83% of Americans are blindly jealous of the blissful quality of life one can only experience in Wisconsin. From the billionaires on Wall Street to the hipsters in Los Angeles, all agree that Green Bay, Wisconsin is Mecca. So what’s stopping them from a embarking on a pilgrimage to Title-town and a chance at heightened enlightenment? It’s not the high priced real estate, not the outrageous Green Bay Symphony Orchestra ticket prices nor the unacceptable lack of valet parking at The Brett Favre Steakhouse. No, it’s the daunting 97 year wait on the Packer Season Ticket list. But to the thousands patiently waiting on that list, its all about staying positive – knowing in your heart you’re a true believer,

  64. I was in Breezy Point, MN this past weekend for a wedding and played bar bingo at some dive bar. They passed out “cheat sheets” so patrons could identify the difference between odd and even numbers. I initially thought it was a joke – it wasn’t. How the hell can you not know the difference between odd and even numbers? Nice educational system there, MN.
    By the way, if you want to see your fill of morbidly obese (not just regular obese) men, women and children, northern Minnesota is the place to be. It is Little Rascal/Hoverround heaven. Haven’t been to a wedding in WI so I can’t comment on the stupid and/or the obese.

  65. I call BS on this so-called list. No way there are that many people on it, and if there were, most of them probably put there name on it for a free giveaway at a game or a credit card offer. Most of them probably could’nt afford the tickets if there name was called anyway.

    Once again……the women of Minnesota are fatter than the national average. The Wisconsin women actually fall below the national average. Check out statehealthfacts.org before you wet yourself with self-delusion.

  67. twizzlystick thinks that most women’s crotches are nasty, I’m guessing – though it’s doubtful he’s ever seen one. Last I heard the Minnesota obesity rate was maybe half of one percent lower than that in Wisconsin. Whoo! Also, owners in Wisconsin waterparks are considering raising the rates for Gopher visitors because of the rings they leave around the pools. You’re right haters, nothing else to do in Wisconsin but we do hope to get one of those new-fangled moving picture screens one of these days, and a few of us have got that interweb thingy. Just keep movin’ along, return to your exciting cities and lives, nothin’ to see here, move along, thank you…

  68. I can’t believe you Queen Fans. The Pack sells out in the coldest weather in the NFL. You fair weather fans went to the humpty dome where it was 70 degrees. And, General mills still had to buy tickets out to lift the Blackouts. You guys will NEVER hold a candle to Pack fans. We’ll see now after a few years in your new stadium when the newness wears off, where the fans are when its cold. You dumb bastards didn’t even spend the extra money to put a retractable roof on. That just put you out of the running for other events in the winter like the Super Bowl. It would have been nice to host a Super Bowl, cause you cornheads will never be in one!!!!! [Until Hell Freezes Over]

  69. I forgot to mention: In the end you’ll be sharing the Twins Stadium. That will be your new home.
    If the Vikes don’t move!!!!

  70. Ok Vikqueen fans, lay off the fat jokes when referring to Wisconsin. Wisconsin is middle of th pack ranked number 25 in the nation for obesity rates, while Minnesota is just behind them at 30. You have no place to talk. And I’d rather where a block of cheese on my head than wear pigtails like a lil girl.

  71. Just give the progressives another 10 years in power and you’ll see that waiting list significantly decrease.

  72. To be honest, there are many, many people who have season tickets but never attend games. Instead, they make a second income out of selling their season tickets at inflated prices.
    There was a story about them on the Green Bay Press-Gazette about a year or so ago, and their rationalization for why they do this is pretty stomach-churning. Apparently, they think they’re being rewarded for sticking with the team back in the 70s and early 80s when the Packers were horrible.
    It’s like, I bet a majority of people waiting on tickets weren’t even alive in the 70s. How is that a fair argument?

  73. “Everyone from a different state other than Minnesota is fat, incestual and stupid.”
    No, only people from Wisconsin. “The Fat, Incestual and Stupid State” is actually the slogan on Wisconsin’s license plates.

  74. @ mike-Life is short, unfortunately so is what’s down your pants. Not to worry though, you make up for it by being a colossal dick head!

  75. @ footballrulz
    I think moving the franchise that’s currently in Jacksonville to Milwaukee makes more sense. All those frustrated fans in the region would be able to purchase a local football product.
    If the Vikes leave they’ll no longer be the Vikes and I’ll be a man without a team.

  76. The Packers have had a great and storied history and also have had the benefit of having almost 100 years to grow a tradition. But now in todays impatient world we the fans of Jacksonville are not being given any time to build our own football tradition. Our team was born on November 30, 1993. We did not play our first game until September 3rd, 1995. We were lucky enough to almost get to the Superbowl in only our second year losing the AFC Championship game to the Patriots 20-6. Foe the next several years the Jaguars played in front of sellout crowds and made it to their second AFC Championship game in 2000 losing to the Titans 33-14. Since then the team has fallen on hard times but still avoided having most of their home games blacked out until 2007. Now it seems the whole world is trying to get this team moved from Jacksonville to LA. Why ?? Other teams have had lean years and hard times selling out their stadiums as well including the Colts, Patriots, Saints, Bucs, raiders and cardinals. Yet their situations improved and things eventually turned around for the better. But it seems that the owners of this website are not willing to give the people of Jacksonville the chance or the time to let us right our ship. No , They want to snatch away what we fought so hard to get because of their own personal biases and shear hatred of this city and the fine people who live and work here. Almost every HONEST critic will admit that the stadium was built much too big for the NFL market. This stadium will hold almost 80,000 and can be expanded to hold almost 85,000, Yet most NFL stadiums are built to hold between 63-66,000. When the tarps were added it reduced the capacity to a more sustainable capacity. Now as the economy begins to recover and as the teams on field performance improves we will see a return back to sellout crowds , But I feel that the talking heads do not want to see that happen and this is why they are pushing so hard now to steal the Jaguars . Florio should be ashamed, But he knows he has this platform to use and to spread his propaganda and he will not rest until he gets his wish of seeing a team in LA. I want to say this, If there is such a hunger for the NFL in LA where are the rallies asking for a team ? Where are the petition drives asking for a team ? Where is the public outcry asking for a team ? The answer is there is none, None at all. It is just sports hacks like Florio beating the drum and no one else. No one in LA is screaming for the NFL because they have been there, Done that with two teams and now are passionate for the Lakers.

  77. @rudedog36- I would bet my dong that you are the typical Packer fan on PFT. Sitting in your beat down double wide trailer screaming at your 7 kids to shut up so you can put together 5 words to make a post. You know,while your fat ass old lady smashes down the last of the Ho ho’s you douchers bought with food stamps at Piggly Wiggly. Best get one before they are gone chudly…

  78. How many Packer fans does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
    3. One to screw it in, and 2 to talk about how great the old one was.
    Since ’61, the Packers have 1 championship.
    Since ’61, the Vikings have the most division titles.
    What does this mean? Not a damn thing.

  79. I heard Green Bay is getting a 2nd Applebees in town.
    “A SECOND F*CKING APPLEBEES! WOOOOOOO!” ~Mike McCarthy

  80. @Kenneth. Excellent post, and you couldn’t be more accurate in your assessment of the Jags situation. Had a hard time selling tickets starting in ’07, right when Florida’s economy went in the tank. As a Floridian I know you’re speaking truth, I think the only state that got hit harder than us was Nevada.
    And as a former Angelino I know a little bit about that city as well. The only ones that want an NFL team in LA are the business interests that will profit from the construction and maintenance of the stadium, and the media and the NFL, which has been losing out on commercial revenue of the second largest media market. The people in LA give two shits about pro football. USC, UCLA, and even small college ball (I worked at Santa Monica College, Ochocinco’s alma mater) yes. Pros? No way.
    It’s the time zones and LA traffic. You have to play the home games at 4:00 only, otherwise your games would kickoff at 9:00am ET. That hurts families and all the guys getting up at 5:00 for their 2 hour commute to work on Monday morning.
    Now if you want to follow rivals in other divisions their games come on at 9:00 on Sunday morning. How convenient. Oh, and MNF, that comes on at 4;00 in the afternoon. If you’re lucky you can get home in time to see the fourth quarter.
    That works in San Diego and SF, which are much more laid back. But football does not fit the LA rat race.
    KTLA wouldn’t show some of the Rams September home games that were sold out, that’s how much apathy there was!
    Good luck man, hope you can win out on this one.

  81. God bluestree….you suck up to all fans of other teams don’t you. Wipe the shit off your nose son….

  82. rudedog36, do you know who the hell i am? Let me paint a pic for you….
    Chilly: Look Pervy, we can’t have you running around out there killing Packer fans.
    Pervy: There are no friendly Packer douchers!
    Chilly: But I’m your friend Pervy! I was there with you knee-deep in all those lost championships. I covered your ass more than once. Seems like baling you out of trouble’s got to be a life-time achievement for me.
    Pervy: There wouldn’t be no trouble except for that dumb shit rudedog36! All I wanted was something to post. But the man kept pushing Sir.
    Chilly: Well you did some pushing on your own Pervy.
    Pervy: They drew first blood, not me.
    Chilly: Look Pervy, let me come in and get you the hell out of there!
    Pervy: They drew first blood…
    Chilly: Strictly speaking, he slipped up. You’re lucky to be breathing.
    rudedog36: That’s just great. Colonel Klink, you came out here to find out why one of your fans blew a gasket!
    Chilly: You don’t seem to want to accept the fact you’re dealing with an expert in Internet warfare, with a fan who’s the best, with words, with phrases, with his typing hands. A fan who’s been trained to ignore losses, ignore insults, to live off the parking lot, to eat tail gate food that would make a billy goat puke. It was his job to dispose of Packer fans. To kill! Period! Win by attrition. Well Pervy was the best.
    rudedog36: Are you telling me that 200 of our fans against your boy is a no-win situation for us?
    Chilly: You send that many, don’t forget one thing.
    rudedog36: What?
    Chilly: A good supply of anti-virus!

    …it isn’t that the Packers are special or the WI fans are so dedicated. Simply put,there isn’t shit to do in that drunken,obese state.Packers,pork and pimento cheese is all they have. Rodgers and Thompson will announce their gay fling surely before another seat becomes available.

    Let’s see we have Summerfest, one of the finest music festivals in the entire country. We have Country USA. We have the PGA this year and I believe the U.S. Open in 2014. We have the EAA in Oshkosh. We have some of the finest walleye and King salmon fishing to be found anywhere. Any given weekend you’ll find the fine folks from Minnesota on lake Michigan…I fish out of Algoma and have had numerous discussions with folks from Minnesota and every time I am surprised they can actually speak in coherent sentences. They don’t seem to mind the beer either. Many could use a weight loss program. We have Door County…I’d go on but your mind is probably about to explode like a Fembot with so much information.
    What the hell does Minnesota have? Except pedophiles that come to our malls to molest our children!
    In an unrelated story. The vikings have reduced the size of the new stadium request to seat only 20,000 people. That way they may be able to sellout a play off game and actually generate enough interest to create a waiting list. I have heard the only way they get this passed is if they can get the support of the Paul Bunyan Historical society.
    Pervy, Contra et al Keep them comi’n children…..
    I’ve never read such pointless crap from a bunch of losers in my life. You have no football success to fall back on so you lash out at anyone that embraces team history. You never did respond to my post that ranks the vikes second to last in team value while the packers rank among the top 19. I would suspect that fan base has something to do with creating that value.
    Oh, by the way…thanks for Al Franken….Way to vote quality into office!

  87. Talk is cheap and so are vikings fans. Thats why they cant sell out games or build a new stadium.

    Don’t know….but you’re living there, why don’t you tell us?

  89. @ Dlem, thanks for the WI manifesto chud. You are right. When i come there i show you guys how a real fisherman catches and drink your beer.Other than that? Keep the dump….oh the pickled pork hocks are ok too….
    Johnny and Mike- Keep that Dutch rudder powered light on boys….

  90. @ Pervy You ask you shall receive…by the way why did you not come back with what is good about Minnesota…….oh that’s right you did… there is absolutely nothing. I hate to tell you but real fishermen aren’t cross dressing fools like you. If you do come this way please teach your MN buddies how to land and load a boat in less than 45 minutes! You sure you really aren’t Al Franken!

  91. yeah cuz minnesota has the t wolves ..zzzzzz the wild ,,,zzzzzz the gopherss,,,zzzzzz the vikings 2010…zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  92. @ Dlem- As far as real fisherman goes son, I do just fine. And yes,I have come to the Fox River,Mendota, WI River etc. and put on fishing clinics for you backwoods novices. As far as shitty trailering,it is everywhere. As far as WI douchers coming to MN in search of REAL muskies and eyes,have at em. From what I see,you couldn’t hurt our precious resources one bit…excuser me while i fry a few gills for lunch doucher…MN rules btw for our fishing is #1 by a mile….

  93. @ dlem-
    Your attempt at constructing a creative post was pitiful. I mean, really, stringing together a bunch of insults among a load of babbling was hardly effective… Maybe later in life, after you have learned to read, write, spell, and count, you will have more success. True, these are rudimentary skills that many of us “normal” people take for granted that everyone has an easy time of mastering. But we sometimes forget that there are “challenged” persons in this world who find these things more difficult. If I had known, that this was your case then I would have never read your post. It just wouldn’t have been “right”. Sort of like parking in a handicap space. I wish you the best of luck in the emotional, and social struggles that seem to be placing such a demand on you.

  94. “Since ’61, the Packers have 1 championship”
    —————-
    How could anyone else not notice how stupid Franchise is? Read the above statement.
    Pervy, MN didn’t even have a musky stocking program until 1981. 59 years after Wisconsin. Mille Lacs, Waconia and almost every other musky fishery in Minnesota was stocked with Bone Lake/LCO strain muskies from Wisconsin until 1991. Don’t get me started on this, you will lose.

  95. Ruvell, I don’t fish them but am well aware of the history of them in MN and WI. Guess MN took the ball and ran over WI as far as size and numbers. I know Lee Tauchen, he would tell you the same. Guess old musky history just like ancient Pack championships really don’t mean crap today!

  96. I know Lee quite well, and I would agree in principle. Right now, the best musky fishing in the country is in Minnesota.
    But it would be pretty typical Minnesota to stand on a pedestal and shout it to the world, then push for increased fees to out of state guides, most from Wisconsin, like Lee. You had nothing in 1991. NOTHING. You borrowed funds to stock WI fish, piggie-backed all of your research from WI biologists, and every weekend for 30 years Bone, Deer, Yellow and all of the Hayward lakes were packed to the brim with Minnesotans who had no viable musky fisheries other than Leech, V, and Cass.
    Most of Wisconsin was pressured to the point of disaster, by MN and IL anglers. Now you sit here with this great fishery and bitch about out of staters (not you, Perv, just the general musky community) and want to add additional fees to guide and fish in Minnesota? You should be thanking us for 60 years of research and tourism dollars! Ruin Bone, Deer and Hayward for 50 years, finally start your own with us helping you, and then crow about how great it is. Is there any honor in that Franken-state?

  97. Franchise: did you graduate the third grade?
    The Packers have won 12 championships, including five between 1960 and 1968. They lost the 1960 championship to the Eagles. They also won two Super Bowls in that era, yup the same game we have today.
    The other obscenely stupid argument is the championships of old mean nothing today. That’s like saying a Ford Model “T” means nothing to a Ford Escape. The first cars made it possible for the car of today. It’s like saying your grandparents are irrelavent to what you are today. Brilliant.
    Grow up and be a student of the game.
    There’s a deep sense of history to anyone who is a true fan of the NFL.
    The Packers have won 12 championships.
    The Bears have one 9 championships.
    And while the Vikings have been to many championship games, it shows something that they have zero championships.
    By the way, you can talk all you want about fat Wisconsin people, but ask anyone from Minnesota where SPAM is made.

  98. As an outside observer, what I’m getting out of this is that Wisconsin has better culture, better beer, better food, more NFL championships (12-0, and this is a football site), more pride, better colleges, better college sports, better golf, better nightlife…
    and Minnesota is .07% less fat. Wow! Take a lot of pride in that!

  99. Ruvell – LOL I hear you. I grew up in Iowa and moved up here at age 24. I love MN for the lakes,fishing and do know some great people. Will admit though,I do think their is many douchers living here as in all places. I still laugh to hear them bash Iowa and talk all mighty all things MN.Many think they are so big league over here. Makes me sick that these tight wad blowhards actually have to fight to keep their greatest asset(Vikings) oh well, is anywhere perfect??

    While history is ….well history…i could give a ratts ass about the Model T or old pack titles. Those are things or events…my grandparents are way above that status genius. Now go make me a grilled cheese and live in the present fool…

  101. radioboy, I agree about the Packers being like a Model T. I bet they used to be really good. I think the whole team should be in a museum where everybody could go and stare at them.

    Dude…keep it up…you are on fire! LOL

  103. Perv(ert), you’re older than 24? You’d never know it by your posts. I was thinking you were a prepubescent little boy. Oh well, keep trashing me, it shows just how small minded you are.
    By the way, the fall musky bite on green bay can rival any water in size of fish You’re going to need more than a cane poll though. You’re going to teach me something about fishing? You couldn’t teach a kid how to tie his shoes even if they had velcro laces! I know many a fisherman that used to visit MN for the perch ice fishing. They no longer make the trip because it’s just not worth the drive. I will not dispute that MN has good fishing overall but I’ll put the quality of fishing the bay and Lake Michgan up against MN anytime.
    By the way, we do have a museum, it’s called the GB Packer hall of fame ya used condom! We and many people around the world that visit it value what the Packers have brought to the league. The only history you value is the 2 wins against the Pack last year….pretty shallow man.
    Tell me, how much money does the Viking franchise bring into the community during the off season?
    If my posts bother you so much don’t respond! I find you rather entertaining, childish, but entertaining. Now go to bed so you don’t wake up so crabby tomorrow.

  104. This is just like the Viking faithful. They think that all their talk about baseball, obesity, hockey, gay rights, fishing, politics, basketball, academics, golf, and Ford Model Ts will somehow draw attention away from their franchise’s perennial failures and current stadium woes.
    Fail.
    News flash: This is a football website. If you are too ashamed to talk football, you should probably find a different blog.
    However, if you intend to stay, grow a set and admit your team sucks and has always sucked. Realize that world championships don’t cease to exist just because you want them to. And above all, learn some basics about football, so you can actually hold your own in a conversation.
    I will say your team has potential to be good though. The Saints pulled it off, so maybe you all can too. It could always be worse, at least you aren’t stuck with Ted Thompson for the next twelve years…

  106. @Pervy and Ruvell; Interesting off topic stuff. I’m not a fisherman but I do like boating down here in Florida. Fishing for ‘eyes and musky sounds nice and peaceful and relaxing. You need to come down here when the Silver King come in. Six footers leaping out of the water all around the boat, water full of Hammerheads so thick you could walk on them. You’d really enjoy the fishing Ruvell. Pervy, you could come along for a nice swim.

    If we try to talk about the present day teams, and the Vikings are the better team….you packer fans automatically want to talk about the past.
    Why can’t you packer fans grow a set and amit the Vikings have been better as of late?
    ____________________________________
    Once again, you hang your hat on regular-season wins. Fine, I’ll play along. I admit it, the Vikings won one more game than the Packers last year, and they swept them, and then they waited two whole weeks after the Packers did to collapse in the playoffs themselves.
    If that makes you such a much better team, I’ll let you have it. Just don’t expect me to take my hat off, because I was not impressed.
    The reason we don’t want to talk about last season, of any other one during Ted’s tenure, is because there is simply nothing to brag about.
    To a Pack fan, if we don’t win it all, we have failed, and we certainly don’t sit and take pride in our failure. I see that you all do though. See, the Vikings didn’t win anything of consequence last year either. You failed, just as we did. You just don’t seem to realize it.
    So enjoy those regular season wins. They may well be all you ever have to celebrate.

  109. The list of names on the waiting list has grown exponentially since 1992. Hmmm, I wonder who came to town in the fall of 1992 to create all that interest ????
    FACT in 1996 and 1997 the number of people that did not renew their season tickets was 6, and 9, respectively. Six. SIX ! Not 6,000 like some franchises, not 600 like most others, SIX !

    LOL I fish 5-6 days a week. You could swim Chum Lee I’ll catch all those Silvers…..So,you are a fisherman? And here I didn’t want to like you….lol
    Beer- Rc is right,wtf happened to you? Did your puppy run away??
    Ambrose- I’ll quit picking on you if you make me a grill cheese sandwich…deal?

  111. Wow, you’d think more ticket-holding Wisconsinites would have died from heart attacks over that time than that.

  112. Beer:
    Same old blather out of you.
    You know just as well as i do had the Packers swept the Vikes, you and your ilk would have been all over it. It’s called being a fan.
    Way to smooth it over though, like it doesn’t bother you.
    Hypocrite.
    Hypocrite as a football fan, and a reverse racist to boot.
    Do you remember saying all midwestern white people are the same? I sure do.
    Stereotyping people?
    I used to somewhat respect you, after that comment, you have gone way downhill.
    I’m sure you don’t care, but none the less, you are coming off as a whiny bitch with an axe to grind.
    Get over yourself already.

  113. @GBP
    I am number 69,703. When I put my name on the list 4 years ago I was number 75,000 something. I should have those tickets by the time I have great grandchildren. But it’s a better problem to have than worrying about where my team will be playing in two years.
    I’m confused. If they only turn over less than a couple hundred seat per year, how did you move up 5,300 spots in four years? Sounds to me like a lot of people refuse the tickets when their number comes up.

  114. @Dlem
    “Oh, by the way…thanks for Al Franken….Way to vote quality into office!”
    I don’t care about your beef with the Viking fans, but if you want to stir the pot on politics, I’m all in. I’d take Al Franken over most of the smarmy, 8-term lawyer/career politicans in Congress who think they’re a judge with a lifetime appointment and their only purpose in life is to get re-elected. Bring on some new faces, like the founding fathers intended. At least he’s entertaining once-in-a-while.

    You have a short memory, as is typical with your fanbase. If you remember, we DID sweep you guys twice, including one 37-0 shutout, during the first two years of McCarthy and Childress.
    We did not, as some do, act like it was some great feat akin to a Super Bowl win at the time, because it wasn’t. They are regular season wins. No one cares.
    I am the furthest thing from a racist. Or a “reverse racist”, which is a term I won’t even acknowledge. Ignorance is ignorance, it isn’t specific to one people.
    I did spread some hate on the entire midwest, and say there was a good reason I left. You have once again beautifully demonstrated what that is.
    I did NOT, however, say anything about white people, and I defy you to show where I did. Why would I; I’m mostly white myself! (for future reference, the part of me that is not caucasian isn’t black either, as you and Suck seem to have assumed.)
    You do know there are more than two races in the world, right? Nevermind. Talking to a Midwesterner again. One who laughably calls ME a racist.

    Texas Rangers (1961)

    Minnesota Vikings (1961)
    L.A. Kings and St. Louis Blues (1968)

    Just to make clear, you are just playing with words.
    Just because the leagues hadn’t “merged” doesn’t make the Vikings the “CHAMPIONS” like we use the word today. It was the NFL and AFL (AFC/NFC) and when they played the Chiefs, they got their asses KICKED!
    But hey, I guess if I was a fan of such a pathetic franchise I’d be getting political with the terminology as well.

  120. I did spread some hate on the entire midwest, and say there was a good reason I left. You have once again beautifully demonstrated what that is.
    ===============================
    You admitted it. Now STFU about it.
    You painted the whole midwest as all being the same. That is racist.
    I dont care what color you are, but you did call yourself mulatto…..that is 1/2 white , 1/2 black, in case you didn’t know.
    Whatever mixed breed you are, you are an idiot.
    I don’t hate people for the color of thier skin, there are just too many other reasons to hate people for.
    We did not, as some do, act like it was some great feat akin to a Super Bowl win at the time, because it wasn’t.——————-
    BS! How do you live with yourselves with these lies?
    That is all we ever heard from Packer fans!

    He hasn’t been in office long enough for me to despise, yet. Don’t worry, the rest of them will corrupt him soon enough.
    Q. What do you call a couple hundred members of congress (both parties) at the bottom of the ocean?
    A. A good start.

  122. Wow that’s a really long wait… I guess it will give you Sconnies plenty of time to go and find you a dead deer on the side of the road to rape… why do most of America’s most notorious serial killers come from WI anyway? Is it something in the water over there?

  123. Ever been to a strip club in Wisconsin?? Just imagine a cattle auction and you’ll get a pretty clear picture!

  124. The year of 1969 was the last year before the NFL and AFL merged… they were two entirely seperate leagues until 1970… so you can’t compare that to the NFC and AFC (which both belong to the NFL)… so yes, TECHNICALLY the Vikings were the NFL champions in ’69.

  125. It doesn’t make me feel better at all… The Vikings still haven’t won a super bowl… so it’s a moot point in my opinion.

    No, YOU called me a mulatto (which is ANOTHER racially biased term that I refuse to use).
    All *I* ever said was that I am biracial, or a halfbreed if you prefer. I didn’t name which races. Again, you know there are more than two races in the world, right??
    The entire Midwest probably isn’t the same. I may see you all as closed-minded, under-educated, overly outspoken idiots. That probably isn’t the case, but you and those like you don’t have much of an argument.
    I did like your comment about many other reasons to hate though. I’ve said similar things myself. Now prove you feel that way and leave race out of the discussion.
    Back to football!

    ________________________________
    Perhaps it’s all you hear in Wisconsin. I disagree with that mentality, and I can’t be held responsible for it. You won’t hear it from me however.
    I only give a damn about the regular season while it is in progress, and I congratulated you guys for both of your wins over us at the time.
    You were clearly the better team of the two last season. Sadly, you failed to capitalize and bring home a trophy, so that doesn’t matter any more than 1998 does now.

  127. Alright I’ll be the one to finally say it: people of Minnesota and Wisconsin, both of your states suck! Really, they do.

  128. I went to the Minn-GB game on opening weekend for the re-dedication of Lambeau renovation and paid face-value for the tickets on Sunday morning. I was stunned how many Viking fans were there, and I’ve also been to Mpls for games there and equally stunned how many Packer fans are there. I don’t think either side should brag about loyalty. I’ve never been to either location where tickets weren’t easily available, which means people are loyal to their wallets, first and foremost.

  129. The whole “Wisconsin is fat” thing got old weeks ago. Its obesity level isn’t that much higher than Minnesota, and it is right in the middle for the United States.

  130. @thirdandgoal
    I agree with the new faces comment. I hope we clean house and impose our own term limits by holding these pinheads accountable…..I don’t know that Al is all that entertaining though…..

  131. After years I’m around the 72,000 mark. I live in Seattle now but if my name ever gets the call we’ll be heading back to Titletown.
    I also lived in MPLS for close to a decade and it was then that I first I learned of this blackout concept.
