Now seriously, how do you sit in an outdoor stadium for 4 hours when it's -18* with a 10mph wind?

Apparently they don't since the game still has 8k unsold tickets which is threatening a local blackout of the game....

Hmm...

 

If there has ever been a better reason to give a club an exemption, I don't know what it could be.

The temperature/ wind chill is not just dangerous, it is life threatening, especially for some of their

"more mature" fans.

That's just insane.  I'm hoping for the best here but I know that locally the 49ers have been dealing with a record warm front and the driest year in CA history.

 

Gooooo 9ers!

There is an absolutely zero percent chance of a GB playoff game not being sold out  GB fans don't mess around. People (not even season ticket holders) shovel the stands when it snows. Cheeseheads got heart.

As a guy who's been to a couple winter games in Green Bay, I don't know if I could do that cold.  Honestly, its not hunting where you can pack it in if the first hour or two don't bag you a deer.  Your more or less stuck for 4-5 hours, the bathroom got so crammed (they are heated) during a 20* game, I can't imagine one that cold.

 

It gives a whole new meaning to fair weather fan lol.  I love the Packers, but I really enjoy having feeling in my extremities!

Some business will buy up the tickets that are left over...they always do.  I was reading yesterday that the only game that was completely sold out was the Eagles game in Philly.

 

And pretty much every cold weather team has fans that shovel the stadiums out.....makes things a whole lot easier on everyone and most get free general admission tickets to go along with it...

I think if people thought they had a chance of advancing, more tickets would be sold. Who wants to pay for a one and done

If i can goout fishing in single digit weather i could sit at a game.  The big thing is where your seats are in relation to the wind.  Normally i would want to be by an aisle but in this case i would want to be right smack in the middle of a section.

That's funny!  The 49'r game still has thousands of unsold tickets, and yet the 'Hawks playoff game sold out in minutes - and they don't even play this week, or even know who they're going to play against!

Real fans will!!!

I think it's more along the lines of why pay all this money and freeze just to see them lose to the 9ers

IMO Packers have the advantage because of the elements. BAD FANS!!!

Philly we got our game sold out!!! Me personally I'm waiting til we host the NFC Championship game til I fly out to claim my seats! (I may be waiting a while though lol)

Jigfish, I was at the '67 Ice Bowl. It isn't as cold as you might think. Back then . both ends of the stadium were wide open and the wind would blow right through. Now it is a full bowl and 70K+ fans get real cozy during games like this. As long as you can keep your feet and face warm, it's not bad.

The 'Hawks fans didn't even know the wx forecast, and still they're going to support their team, rain, shine, ice, or snow.  That's the definition of diehard, loyal fans.

I was at..................according to the NFL.............the 9th coldest game in NFL history back in 1994 when the Bills played the Raiders. It was 0 with a -32 windchill........I don't remember it being too bad. As long as you keep your hands and feet warm it's fine. We even sat in the tunnel end zone which is in the east end of the stadium. The wind blowing out of the northwest off Lake Erie was right in our face...................I don't know if I would do it again tho...LOL.

Kind of fitting that weather is such a story in a year where the SuperBowl is in a cold weather city.  Should make for some interesting games.

Man, that must have been quite an experience, plumworm...I live in New England and experience some cold weather, but I really don't think it's as bad as what you folks experience. I'm also finding that I have less tolerance for the cold as I get older. I don't know tho, I've watched re-runs of that game and I don't think I could have stayed and watched it, much less play in it.

 

Good luck!

Thats because Seattle actually has a good team and a chance to win it all this year. That happens as often as Haley's comet.

2:00 pm, game sold out, no blackout. Fire in the fireplace (check), Uncle Jack in a glass (check) wings for halftime (check) flannel shirt and pants(check) Large screen TV (check) My Mom didn't raise no dummy. -25 windchill at game time= 80K crazy Packer fans.

6* at kick-off, 10-15 mph wind and 30% chance of snow.

 

Uncle Jack and a Big Screen TV sounds great to me!

As a younger man I would think it was all great fun-get a little loaded and have bragging rights about having 'been there, done that'. Now as a "more mature" man who has no interest in Jack Daniels or any other mood altering substances, and a circulatory system that will not keep my feet and hands warm in even moderately cold temps, there is not a snowballs chance in the Sahara that I would go to this game.

The whole wind chill thing is pretty silly....unless of course you are going out there in no shirt.  Wind chill is only applicable to areas of exposed skin and when i look at these games, not many people have any exposed skin, well except the token drunk shirtless guys.

I'd much rather be outside on a calm 0 degree day than a windy 30 degree day.   Just saying..........
