  1. How Do We Edit Signatures Now?

    Thanks TK. I forgot I posted the question until just now when I remembered I wanted to edit my signature again.
  2. Season Ticket Renewals

    Dear old man shaking his fist at the clouds. It's the 21st century. No more phones attached to the wall. We drive cars instead of riding horseback. We can fly like the birds. We have light bulbs and LEDs instead of candles. Computers in the palm of our hands not taking up an entire city block. Donald Trump is President. Stuff happens. Things change. You don't need a ticket stub. Its on your phone. Guess you haven't gone to sports in other towns, concerts, plays, etc. Paper tickets are old stuff. And this coming from a 60 year old. Life will go on.....
  3. Season Ticket Renewals

    Lots of good sideline seats still available. I just upgraded myself from the 15 to the 40 yard line in section 220. My friend just upgraded from upper deck to the 35 yard line in 223 I believe. Most available seats are on the visitor's side. Lots of good end zone seats also. As far as I could tell, no obstructed view seats behind the pillars are available. So perhaps it is true they are not selling those tickets. Sad to see how easy it is now to get redskins season tickets. No longer a ticket in demand. Login to your account and try to buy tickets. It will take you to the ticketmaster app and you can check various sections you are interested in. Then call the ticket office with the seats you want to upgrade too. Took me two minutes.
  4. Where do I go to edit my signature now? I can't find it under Edit Profile and this Technical assistance forum only shows about 5 threads, and I can't get to any old threads which might have such information. I've looked everywhere and have given up. Thanks.
  5. I always love a guy with a little self-deprecating humor. Have a great weekend.

    I agree, there is much less interest in seat upgrades than past years. We used to add pages every day of people interested and declaring their upgrades. Sad. And yes, we are in agreement (probably in the minority) that there really is something special about watching our dear Redskins in person. A lot of fans poo-poo the idea of seeing the game live in person. I understand the value to entertainment ratio argument. Never understood people's complaints about the "game day experience". For me, the football game IS the game day experience. Not the food, beer, pomp and circumstance, Wi-Fi, parking, ease of access, and other stuff. Thanks for the seating update. I guess I don't feel so bad if I'm not missing possible seats closer to the 50. HTTR!

    This really irritates me. Why not open all available seats to people at the beginning? What if I waited and now could have gotten better seats than I got at 3pm yesterday. I just don't get it. Shouldn't people in the lower level sideline, corners and then end zone get first crack at sideline seats before upper deck and less senior season ticket holders? The TO ticket policy has never been consistent or fair. Arrggghhh.
  8. Season Ticket Renewals

    Yep, section 238 rows 4 and 5 are under cover. That's my old section. And for the person who asked yesterday, I cannot upgrade as of 8am Friday morning after having upgraded a about 3:30pm Thursday. Can't see my tickets or available seats.
  9. Interesting how monopolies think they can charge as much as they want to make a profit. Falcons found out that they made more profit selling at reasonable prices and made more profit in hire volume sales. IF food and drink prices, I would buy more than I buy now. Now, I buy nothing. Do all my eating and drinking in my tailgate. I pickup a free water/soda as a designated driver.
  10. Season Ticket Renewals

    You get locked out at first. In the past, some years we could get back in the next day; sometimes not. Not sure if they have a clear set of rules. One year, long time ago, I upgraded twice during two days. They were selling obstructed view seats like they were season tickets. At least back as far as the pillars. I didn't see any for sell beyond row 12/13. I heard the same rumors you heard. Seats in front of the pillars are not bad seats in most cases. Overhang can be an issue for some. Were your seats on the aisle in row 3?
  11. Season Ticket Renewals

    I bit the bullet. I moved over 2 sections to about the 25 yard line in Section 224 on the aisle. Unfortunately, I move to the visitors side. Hopefully I don't regret that. But I've wanted to move closer to the 50 for over 5 years now. Still curious why so many seats opened up just before 3pm. Lesson for others. Don't give up once your window opens. I've been checking every 10-15 minutes since 10 am when my window opened and upgraded at about 3:20pm
  12. Season Ticket Renewals

    Very interesting. At about 3pm, dozens of more prime sideline seats opened up on both the home and visitor lower level. They were not there moments before. It was like the Redskins released a bunch of seats for the 2pm window group. 4 seats opened up in section 204 but I dawdled too long whether I wanted them or not and someone else grabbed them. I'm on the other end of the field. Would have just been a one section upgrade but would have been a longer walk to my parking area. I'm a little bummed. But the interesting news is how hundreds of new seats magically appeared just before 3pm. Hmmmm.
  13. True, but from most opinions, the Redskins are a highly dysfunctional team in the front office. Why would you want to go there. Just sayin'. I have no inside info. Working for a team, he may have more direct input to implement his policies whereas with the league, he essentially was an advisor/consultant. Could be money. Could be grooming to take over for Bruce. Who knows....
  14. By all media accounts, he is an experienced NFL business guy who has worked with all the NFL teams from the NFL office. Before that, he worked many years for Madison Square Garden (or whatever the corp name is) running their venues. So the guy has a lot of experience. But I do find it odd leaving the league office for a team job. Usually that is a step down. And the NFL league office has been known to dump league office personnel on teams. But maybe Dan is offering $$$ and possibly is grooming him to replace Bruce. Who knows at this point.
  15. Hasn't been announced. Bruce did say a few months ago that we would know by July 4.
