Packers fans, who pride themselves on being among the best in the NFL, are apparently not too excited about a home playoff game Sunday vs. the 49ers. ESPN reports that more than 13,000 tickets remain for the game.
Perhaps Green Bay Packers fans have little faith in this year's team.
How else to explain why as of Tuesday morning there were 13,000 tickets still remaining, according to a team spokesperson, for Sunday's NFC playoff game at Lambeau Field against the San Francisco 49ers?
The Packers, at 8-7-1, have the worst record among the 12 playoff teams.
The organization sent out playoff ticket invoices to season-ticket holders during the seven-game stretch in which quarterback Aaron Rodgers was sidelined because of a broken collarbone. When Rodgers returned for the regular-season finale Sunday and helped the Packers beat the Chicago Bears to win the NFC North, the team still had 40,000 tickets available for the opening round of the playoffs.
The team gave season-ticket holders another chance to buy seats on Monday morning before opening the sale to the public later in the day. A team spokesman said Tuesday the four-ticket limit per transaction that was in place Monday has been lifted.
