Not all Packers fans OK with ticket price hike

It is not good to assume. From Mike Vandermause's Feb. 27 column, "Among Packers fans, no one raised an eyebrow."

Yours truly is one of the fans who is deeply disturbed with the price of Green Bay Packers tickets (not to mention movies and concerts). It would have been interesting to see a list of salaries for general manager, coaches and administrative staff when the Press-Gazette had an article on the latest ticket increase (fourth year in a row).

The media likely do not pay a cent to watch game from the press box. If the above assumption is correct, the opinion of writer on Packers ticket prices is irrelevant.

The end of the column is, "Some will even say it's worth waiting decades for that view at any price."

Is there a limit to any price, now $74 for lowest ticket (was $32 in 1998)? This reader would like to see a poll of ticketholders with their opinion on ticket price. If most/majority feel the same then the motto from the movie "Wall Street" is still relevant today: Greed is good. ($125 million in salary per year for players alone.)
