But don't tell Tina Dollar-Hibbard it was a waste of time for her father to put her name on the list 40 years ago. She was one of the 126 whose names were called this year, 16 years after her dad died.
But as the Press-Gazette notes, for every person who gets called, there are hundreds of fans who continue to wait. This year 99.6 percent of season-ticket holders renewed their tickets.
The Packers estimate fans who put their names on the list this year can expect to be called around 2045 or 2050. In the mean time, they're looking to expand Lambeau Field to help shorten the waiting list. Maybe down to 75,000 names or so.
I knew the waiting list was long but wow you would be waiting 35 years atleast.
I think so many people put their name on the list because it is free and the worst thing that happens is that you get an offer for season tickets that you might be able to buy and then re-sell for a profit. If single game tickets ever start going on StubHub or the like for less than face value, the list would turnover much faster. Sounds impossible I know, but if they stunk for a few years and/or the economy in Wisconsin blew up Detroit style it could happen easily.
