    119 straight sell outs???

    Was at the pack/vikes game and saw the vikings have 119 straight sell outs. My question is, are there always that many road fans to fill the seats or do corporations buy all the remaining seats to prevent the blackouts?

    That was actually a smaller Packer contingent than normal. The dome usually sells out no problem. Last year was tough with the economy and our lack of a good QB, we needed help selling out 1 or 2 games.
    We do appreciate your support though, Favre does too.

    Favre is the man, he will be the difference between a 8-8 vikings team and a 12-4 vikings team

    You mean between a 10-6 Vikings team and a 14-2 Vikings team.

    The whole "Sell out Streak" is a sham.

    This.
    We finished 10-6 last year without Harvin...Should have been able to at least match that without Favre.

    14 W's may be a bit optimistic, but it is definitely looking possible.

    There were far less Packers fans in the house than usual.
    I think maybe a lot of them decided purple looked better than yellow, and converted.
    Like you, maybe????

    Or another way to look it would be he's the difference between a 13-3 packer team and a 6-10 packer team.
    ;D

    Yes and no... There have indeed been 119 sellouts, dating back tot he last game of the 1997 season.
    However, four times we had to have a local company buy out the last remaining group of tickets.

    In the end, all of the tickets needed were sold and used.
    But, I know what you are getting at.

    I am getting at nothing I guess. My little poke was directed at Z.
    I like to fun with him on that little subject.
    Alas, he didn't bite.


    He must be on to me.
