    That makes sense. Thanks

    I believe this is correct. The playoff invoices were due when it still wasn't clear these teams would make the playoffs. People hedged on the pessimistic side. Also the fact that the invoices reflect 3 home playoff games to pay for and the money is due before Christmas. Big nut to pay for at that time of year for alot of people.

    How much did it cost to watch the Jets knock the #1 seed Pats out of the playoffs in 2011?

    Again, the cost of a home playoff game is of no concern to Jets fans.

    Pounded the Colts...something in the neighborhood of 42-6. Santana Moss had a great TD keeping both feet in. Great game

    So youre full of sh1t that youre a STH then?

    Whenever we're in playoff contention weeks before the season ends the playoff ticket orders are taken.

    Woody has nothing to do with the pricing of playoff tickets.

    The prices are set by the NFL not the owners.

    So, theres another thing we can stop blaming on our owner

    I went to Foxboro. Bought tickets off stubhub for $5 over face on the day of the game. About $120.

    Now, I am reading that they are having trouble selling out in Green Bay and Indy.

    Thoughts?
    I flipped a pair of Packer playoff tickets and while I made a profit it was very small and I had 5th row lower level seats on the aisle. I was stunned not only at the small profit but that I could get tickets like that so easily.

    Bingo.

    The Yankees couldn't sell first round playoff tickets in 2012, played to an empty stadium in many sections. After many years of success the GB fanbase has higher expectations, a home playoff wildcard game not so exciting.

    It's ridiculous to compare Green Bay to NY and only compounded by trying to compare MLB to the NFL.

    This will be the 10th playoff home game for the Packers since 1995. There is no playoff burn out.

    The Yankees have probably played about what? Would you estimate about 80 home playoff games in that time span? (I'll let you go back and count them all up...)

    Regardless, the actual reason the game was not sold out on Tuesday (I assume it is now), is that the deadline to submit payment came near the tail end of that 5 game losing streak when it looked like they and Aaron Rodgers were done.

    Sort of like the Jets fans in in 2002...

    I buy and sell tickets as a side gig and do a lot throughout the country. I stick to mostly concerts these days. I had Giants playoff tickets in 2011 for their home playoff game and barely made any profit. Tickets were going for very cheap for the game. For some reason wildcard games anywhere don't have the hype. Only teams to make big bucks are Broncos, Panthers and Seahawks.
