meetings in Orlando on Monday that would prohibit teams from selling playoff tickets until each game is confirmed.

The Green Bay Packers last year sent invoices to season ticket holders before they made the playoffs.

The “Pay as we play” approach would allow NFL teams to charge a credit card once each playoff game is set, but season-ticket holders could also apply game-by-game.

Variable Pricing

Green Bay Packers team president Mark Murphy said the Packers are exploring variable pricing where preseason games would cost less than regular season games.

Murphy said six current NFL teams already employ it.  He said the Packers will see how it goes for those teams before considering it in 2015.
