The Packers Are Struggling To Sell Out For The Playoffs?

Yes, they are.
This is due to a little bit of hubris on the part of the Packers. They figured that they'd sell out no matter what they did to the fans, and it's coming back to bite them. They changed their refund policy so the deposit wouldn't have been refunded to season ticket holders if the Packers didn't make the playoffs, and instead it would have been applied to next season. Also, it's going to be cold as hell in Green Bay on Sunday.

There's going to be some maneuvering by the Packers and the NFL, the PR conscious league certainly doesn't want arguably their marquee playoff game of the weekend ending up in a blackout, but hopefully it does lead to a little more consideration for the fans (the team's owners you know?) in the team's policies.
