It's the time of the year that mostly every American love, football season! How many games are you going to attend this year? Some people buy single game tickets when they go on sale, others use third party sites, or you're lucky enough to have season tickets! No matter what sport it is, it seems like the waiting list for season tickets is really long!
A guy named Matthew McLaughlin in McFarland, Wisconsin and after 10 years on the list, he's still in the 70,000s. So he's come up with an offer to get tickets that's insane, but might just be genius, according to Appleton Post-Crescent. Matthew posted a Craigslist ad on how he's going to get Packers tickets, and he has three proposals.
1. He'll pay someone $10,000 to take their spot if they're under 1,000 on the wait list. To pull that off, he'll legally change his name to theirs so the Packers won't know it's a different person buying the tickets.
2. He'll pay an older person with season tickets $109,000 to leave him the tickets in their will. But since the Packers have strict rules about that, he'll cover the fees to have them adopt him. And he'll also send Father's Day or Mother's Day gifts.
3. If a single woman or man has season tickets, he'll pay them $10,000 to marry him. Then they can get divorced and transfer him the tickets during the settlement. Quote, "We can time it correctly so we maximize our joint tax refund too."
I mean his proposals are a pretty genius ide. He hasn't gotten any serious offers, and probably won't. His post has since been "flagged for removal", and is no longer viewable.
