It appears as if Brett Favre has moved on from defining who is and is not a real Green Bay Packers fan.
Favre will go into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame this summer. We told you last week about how you won’t be able to attend that induction ceremony because sponsors bought all the tickets. Or another way to look at that is the Packers and the Hall of Fame, which are separate organizations, don’t want any ne’er do wells getting into this event. Yet another way to look at it is that the Packers want to protect their broadcast partners, since, for the first time, the Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be broadcast through their television network partners the following day.
Well, Brett has a suggestion that is probably going to piss off both the Hall and the Packers organization.
All I can do is laugh.
That’s a semi-legitimate suggestion. In fact, we suggested that the Hall sell seats to fans and put them in the back of the Atrium.
Certainly there would be demand for fan tickets.
The reason I find this funny is because I don’t see it happening. In fact, they’d probably have to revamp the whole event. It certainly could use some revamping, but the Hall is run by an old boys club. The kind of people who, “Well, this is what we’ve always done…”
Not exactly an incubator of dynamic ideas.
UNLESS… they were already planning on moving and expanding the event and this is their plan to drum up interest.
Oh, sorry. No tickets available. Except… surprise!
“Due to overwhelming demand, blah, blah, blah…” as if they are doing you a HUGE favor.
In either instance, Favre said it and now the cat’s out of the bag. We’ll see if the idea gains any steam.
