Look at this idiot.
Today, we’ve got Pro Football Talk telling people the Green Bay Packers season ticket waiting list, which is more than 83,000 strong, could evaporate quickly. You know, because if the Packers don’t upgrade Lambeau Field, people will suddenly lose interest in attending games at a place that’s been sold out since the 1960s.
The statement, which is TOTALLY plausible, comes from a post in which Packers president Mark Murphy talks about how the team is upgrading their video boards.
“[W]hen they see the scoreboards – I really think they’re going to be blown away,” Murphy said. “It’s unbelievable. It’s four times the size of the boards we had; and the clarity and definition is just phenomenal. It’s really going to change the experience the fans have.”
Murphy’s comment is followed up by this statement.
The fact that the Packers are willing to make such dramatic changes when they boast an 83,000-plus waiting list demonstrates the importance of finding ways to make fans choose the collective football experience over the more intimate man-cave setting. The Packers see what’s happening elsewhere, and they know they need to stay ahead of the curve, or that the waiting list will evaporate, quickly.
Yeah. We’re sure that waiting list will evaporate quickly.
Packers fans are just that fickle.
It’s amazing a guy they put on NBC’s NFL broadcasts is this ignorant. Must be his winning personality and engrossing on-air persona.
Yeah, Florio deep-throats multiple cocks. I just hope it evaporates enough that one day before I die I can watch a game in my season tickets.
Careful with the “cock” references as you may attract viking fan #4 the cock smoker himself ‘Jeff Irncink’ that’s all we need is him pitching his gerifile film again
any talking head douche bag that makes the claim that our waiting list might “evaporate” knows nothing about football and less about the Packers and their fans. I guess that’s why he has a media job. Probably a queens fan.
Florio is an idiot. He really angered me last year with the whole “Aaron Rodgers refuses to sign autographs for sign cancer patient” thing.
If you go on reading his column, he says that one day Lambeau will also have to get rid of their bleachers. Fat chance that happens in my lifetime… and I’m 22. Besides the incredible nostalgia of those metal bleachers (which he admits,) it would be extremely expensive to remove them. Also, it would reduce Lambeau’s capacity and LENGTHEN the waiting list. Moron.
That is legitimately the dumbest sports-related thing I have ever read. I’m really trying to think back, and honestly can’t come up with a more retarded statement…
The greatest sporting venue in the entire world is going to not have a season ticket waiting list. Come on dude, think before you write.
Monty..its time to do a TP tool of the month. Lets start with the July 2012 tool of the month as Mikey Mike Florio.
Tim Tebow can be runner up for starting MMA training….LMFAO
A quick Wiki search says Florio is a “life long Vikings fan” so his comments about Rodgers and the waiting list just comes from a sour/jealous queens fan. Quite typical.
Tebow’s gonna be a MMArtist? Hahahahaha that is glorious, he must figure if he can beat up Sanchez he’ll get to be the starter, that or Miss Upton abusive
Read the article. Yeah, that guy’s an idiot.
Intelligence and sport knowledge are no longer required in order to be a sports reporter. All you really need is the ability to write article titles that will get you hits on your link.
What a total douche nozzle.
Florio is a hack of the highest degree.
This pencil necked motherfucker should be drawn, quartered, ground up, and fed to his beloved Vikings at their next team buffet
He knows nothing of the tradition of Lambeau or the fan loyalty in Green Bay.
I cannot believe the guy has had a job in sports writing since 200.1
