    Now when Squeeler fans then start with the "NFL Championships don't count because it was a different era," don't forget to add that "three of those Super Bowls they won were back when the NFL only scheduled 14 regular season games so doesn't that count as a different era as well?" Then add that the fourth Super Bowl they won was when there were only 28 teams in the NFL so that definitely was a different era. Now here's the kicker, the Steelers have only won 2 Super Bowls during the salary cap era. Since that is the era we are in now, they are tied with the Packers, Ravens, and Giants who are all chasing the Patriots who have three in this newest era.


    ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!

    Oh you will see plenty of us. We travel well and represent our program. I have been to 10 stadiums and we always have a good 25% of the stadium cheering for the Packers. That would be 16,750 in M&T, and I see no reason why that won't happen. The vast majority of our fans are very respectful.

    No way you'll have 1/4 of our stadium.

    1/8 tops.

    Like HR said, no way you get 1/4... And I think 1/8th is probably a lot. I think 1/10th or less is the most likely.

    This would surprise me. Never seen the stadium close to 25%. Steelers fans come out of the woodwork and Titans fans used to travel well, but i would be surprised if that many seats were even available. I think a lot of Ravens Football fans would like to see Rodgers play in person. Packers don't play in Baltimore a lot and right now even though I love me some Flacco, Rodgers is the best in the game right now.

    Re: Party Houses

    There were a lot of Dallas fans there for the game last year - more than we usually get from yinzers. That kind of surprised me. But I guess the NFC teams that only play here once every 8 years with the large national followings can pack them in. I'd guess no more than 10,000 though. There are just not that many tickets for sale from the brokers.

    Look online, they are everywhere, and I know a bunch of people going to this game. There will be a bunch more than 9,000 Packer fans, plan on that. Not trying to start an argument, that is just the way it is. Packer fans travel well, so when we come to town people sell their tickets and walk away getting paid great. Every forum I hop on, the fans always say, "No way, not in our stadium", but it happens every single game.

    I think you're underestimating our fan base.

    Back when we stunk, the Yinzers would invade and at their peek it was maybe 1/4 full of Yinzer fans. A non conference, non rival plus us coming off a Super Bowl win is not going to come close to the 1/4 you're claiming.

    Just because there's tickets available on the secondary market doesn't mean they're going to be mostly bought up by Packers fans.

    No, there are not endless tickets. M&T seats around 71,000. I just checked Stubhub. There are currently 2,739 tickets available for the Packers/Ravens game. Stubhub is arguably the secondary ticket site with the largest volume, so taking the others into consideration, I don't think you have more than 10,000 available in total on the secondary market.

    Dude, we get it. You are a Packers fan and think you have the best, most loyal fan base in the world. But you're not taking over our stadium.

    And in what stadiums did this occur?

    I'd like to know too.

    I was at the 2005 game and no way they had a huge turnout. They traveled well, yes, but they never came close to a Yinzer invasion.

    Maybe...maybe...1/4 at old Memorial Stadium, when, as you correctly said, the Ravens stunk...and they were new and there was a bunch of old Colt / new Steeler fans...or maybe fans with conflicting loyalties.

    At M&T? I have never more than maybe 1 out of 15 fans be an opposing fan. That would be 7% and that would be a lot for M&T.

    If you want to see a fan base traveling well and taking over a stadium, see Ravens at Panthers from 2010. We easily had 30,000 there. That was like a home game.

    Word of free advice for our new Packer fan:

    If your list contains Washington, Miami, Atlanta and Arizona....you may want to strike those before posting.
