    Pathetic crowds at home opener

    They also have NFL Sunday ticket, Bleacher Report, etc. It's so easy to be a fan of an out of town team, its playing with fire being this bad this long. This was inevitable, being mad at the fans for this is rediculous, its not our fault. I'll tell you this now, Redskins turn it around, you'll see people born in this area, even the young ones second guess that, same with what happened with the Nats. I met a lot of people from DC proper that are younger then me and still put up with it, but if your from like NOVA or something and not old enough to drink, you are an endangered species. You ask the average young person why they don't root for the Redskins, its because they not only suck they are embarrasing, the team doesn't care about winning or know how to. They have to start winning or it will not only stay that way it will get worse. Blaming the fans for that is wrong and won't change anything.

    1988 also. i remember osaka, i remember my dad going to a giants game before i understood how angry he was coming home. i remember growing up and getting ridiculed for constantly losing to dallas, being young and looking around to see I was only one in the room watching us get our ass kicked at my mom's friends house trying to figure out why we couldn't cross the yellow line and other team could. This lead to eventually getting **** for the team name being racist. last time i went museum hoping in a redskins jersey i got crap from the security guards up front in every single one for one thing or the other about everything wrong with us, some BS, some indefensible. I've lost count of the reasons Id be justified to leave, but I don't. I don't expect to get credit for that, but I'll damned if get crap for that not being enough.

    You are, but only because believe this might not of been the best year to do that many games. Really low expectations this year, many of those could be losses. Are you going to the saints game? that's worth it, new orleans is awesome regardless.

    I'm not even sure what your definition of sold out is if you're moving the goal post with removing seats. i mean, what are you talking about? Highest capacity Fedex had was 91,000, its at 82,000 now. I could care less about club level, one Endzone I noticed less, but if there's anything that concerns me, its that upper level missing that many people. That says that the die hards that are will to spend that kinda money and you are calling out DID show up, and the people that are picking between watching that abomination in person or dealing some of the highest cost of living in the country stayed home. you should be calling out the people on the fence, the people that did show up are your die hards even though we haven't had much of anything to die hard about in 27 years. What did you expect to happen with the elongated amount of suckatude in a stadium like that? You are looking at this the wrong way, that wasn't a sign our fan base is becoming fairweather, it was a message that if Snyder wants that stadium full, he needs to putting a winning team on the field. When he does, we show up, this problem is not uncommon among the other franchises. Jesus, do we want to get into what Foxbourgh was like before Parcells showed up? Now look at them, that's what winning does, that's normal. It's not the 80s anymore, people talking about setting up a protest or boycott, I don't blame them at this point, and you shouldn't either. Telling me I need to show up and cheer no matter what or I can stop being a fan? you might as well tell me i need to stand for the flag or get out the country. Get off your high horse about what a local fan should do and you aren't a a local fan. half the home games i've been to have been loses.

    50 year home sellout streak finally ends and your calling out local fans for one game? You lost your mind? If ever there was a game to show up for it was that one. The fans did and the team did. What's said is how rare that situation or result is with this team lately. And for the record, Fedex has three rings, bottom two were full, its the top one everyone is spreading pictures of on the Internet.

    Id rather not do this here, but the post disaster relief in Katrina and Maria were an abomination and preparation wasn't much better. We are better then that.

    Was Letting DJax Leave via FA a Mistake???

    I haven't watched them play yet, the highlight are jus him getting open and Fitz getting him the ball. Alex could do that. I don't think what Fitz is doing matters, Winston will be back in before he cools off, them we see if that offense can keep it up. The point being, he's still flying by people and catching bombs. For the people that stand by the decisions because of the money, would y'all not give DJax the contract the Bucs gave him? It's a valid question on where did the money go, we walked into this season with close $10 million in cap space.

    Booing - at the Stadium

    What if you pay $400-$500 to sit in front row jus to watch them totally not give a ****? Jus sit there and eat it, kids jus looking at you and it's cold as ****? Are we looking at this from the perspective of people watching at home or people who are actually in the stadium still giving money towards an investment that basically never bears fruit? The Vinny Stadium Sign moment is exactly what came to mind when people started booing at halftime and I could see much of the top ring was still empty. That was to get this entire franchise's attention , not jus the players .

    Sorry about that, I don't think I took it the way you meant it. I know I have no intent on starting a new thread on something else I'm upset about every week, I jus also know someone else will and there really isn't another place to it (extremeskins, remember? : )

    If you were more specific about what you disagreed with I could've given a more specific response, I can't read your mind, either. I don't need anyones attention when stating my opinion, if someone responds to me, I respond back, that's the pattern, full stop.

    Was Letting DJax Leave via FA a Mistake???

    Considering we were right on the line last year, DJax probably does push us right up to maybe over the line for a wildcard. Why does every discussion on players we debate on getting come back to "do they take us over the top or make us a playoff team"? It's a 53 man roster, talent is accumulative, we shouldn't be looking at these moves in a vacuum. We're in win now mode without win now talent, asking DJax outs us over the to is the wrong question because he's only one player. His contract doesn't look like it was so unreasonable that we couldn't get other players, and better believe we need more players if DJax caliber to get in the conversation. You got a lot of nerve talking about fan morale right now. If you got some good news to build after that loss, go start your own thread. I already said this thread may be early, but I enjoy talking with y'all about this and wanted to see if anyone felt the same way. Obviously we do.

    Can't agree on everything, you think government shouldn't make sure everyone should have a last resort option if government is telling them they have to leave? I know plenty if people in norfolk that would be screwed because they don't have means to drive or get a hotel , let alone family out the area. We were all over Haiti and the Indian Ocean Tsunami, looking at New Orleans and Puerto Rico, how am I supposed to feel about that?

    Masters starts in October, need to feel out that workload before making a commitment. Forcing one out of town trip a month, like the idea of early November, we overdue.

    Ya, most of my NC family and peeps are in Charlotte area, but checked in a couple of them anyway. In my eye, if government issues a mandatory evacuation, they need to be responsible for making sure everyone that doesn't have somewhere to go or way how to get out does. We can go back and forth on the role of government, this one I feel is non-negotiable considering we are a superpower. Our international response to natural disasters should never look better then our responses to American territories.

    Same, and this is where the government should be stepping in so we don't have to make choices like that. Katrina new orleans changed their mind on busing people out in mass and time they realized super dome fiasco was that, buses were underwater.
