    Did you know that some of the people who got the free tickets for Wednesday’s event are selling them on Craigslist for $80 each? I’m sure that Donald would not be very happy if he knew about that. So much for a “free” fan event…

    They probably could have filled the stadium with all the fans Donald Driver has.

    Considering how few tickets were made available by the team, they could’ve ID’d the tickets so that you had to show the same ID to get into the event.
    Really pathetic that some people are selling the tix.

    After further review, there are a lot more people posting on craigslist asking for tickets than there are offering to sell them.

    Too bad they missed an opportunity. Had the team held this event at a large venue, and surely someone in the area would’ve given them a place to do it, they could have had a ton of fans attend, and collected donations for a Driver charity. Now they have people being turned away who drive many miles and waited a long time only to see the tickets run out. Nice planning.

    Will the event be televised? Surely this should be taped and sold at a later date with the proceeds going to the Driver Foundation. That way all of his millions of fans can see this wonderful but sad event and yet have a great deal to contribute to Donalds charities.

    Open up the field and let everyone show the great respect for Donald Driver one of the great fan favorite.

    Nice and warm at Resch Center…

    Why can’t they just have it at the Resch center? It’s only a block from the stadium and it’s where the state tournament for basketball will be held I believe. It would have been a smarter decision to have it there than hand out around 1000 tickets to a few lucky people! If you’re going to hand out only a few tickets then you might as well have them for sale and the money goes to a charity of Donald’s choice.

    Reply to selling tickets on Craigslist. That does upset me to the point I cannot say what I want on this Blog. To combat that there are several things us fans can do. First bombard the >>>> with emails. You can report it as prohibited or spam. Right on the ticket it says “not for resale” thus that is prohibited and the posting will get taken off. If you really want to be mean get the phone number and post it.

    I have as many as 80 tickets still available. Email: media1@wbcstuff.com

    This is a HUGE missed opportunity by the Packers. Too few tickets, no online availability, up to four tickets issued per person. Totally unfair to those of us who live out of town and/or had to work. No wonder tickets are available on craigslist.

    Why not hold the ceremony in a bigger arena, like the Resch Center, OR hold it in April or later and use the actual stadium?

    Sorry, Packers, you’ve really messed this up.

    I live in Chicago and really wanted to drive up for this event. More tickets = more money going into the Green Bay economy for the week!

    Driver didn’t have to do this. He could have just done a private press conference, but instead he opened it up and now everyone is complaining it’s not enough? An event for the team would have been at a bigger venue, but this was Driver’s decision, not the team’s.

  16. By Melissa on Feb 1, 2013 | Reply

    We need to have more tickets available. Really ? 1000 tix? He has touched so many lives… Just open up Lambeau.. I’m sure he will fill it!! So mad!!we don’t have tickets!!! We love Double D!!

    I like to say something about Donald Driver. He IS the true Packer Player. To know that maybe he could of gone elsewhere but decided to retire as a Packer speaks alot about him. Not too many other players have done this. My favorite was Reggie White but Mr Driver is right up there on my list. To you, Good luck in your future and Thanks for the good times and memories.

    Come on people. He could have had an event with 50,000 people, but that would have defeated the point. Instead, 1,000 lucky people are going to enjoy a much more intimate event in which they, perhaps, will get to talk to Mr. Driver. I am as jealous as the next guy, but I can’t complain. What a great opportunity for those who got tickets!

    I am so sad that Donald is retiring, he has truly been
    an inspiration to all us packer fans. For him to retire
    a GREEN BAY PACKER is the ultimate honor to bestow to all
    Packer fans. Thanks for the memories, Donald. We will
    miss you.

    Driver will truly be missed on the field and on the sidelines. Hopefully, the front office can find a job for Driver. He would make a great player relations rep. Also, a great receivers coach!
    Thank Donald Driver for your great team spirit.

    How about broadcasting the event online like you did with our shareholder meeting?

    Lambeau has a foot of snow in the bowl, you nitwits. No one is going to pay 600 people to shovel it out now.

    Can anyone tell me exactly what is all going to take place at this ceremony. How long it will last, and what are they all going to do.

    Or is it just going to be a big Media afternoon with TT and MM and a little of DD…….
