    Season Ticket Renewals

    Great post S&S. Posts like this are what keep me coming back to ES to gain insight from STH's that are as passionate as I am. I have two seats in 236 Row 4 and would love to do a straight upgrade to the two in front of you, S&S but unfortunately it is never that simple with this ticket office. I am torn between wanting to move closer down to the action and wanting to keep my current sight-lines (which I think are the best in the entire stadium) and the fact that the fans in front of me remain seated for the majority of the game unlike the 100 level sideline sections. I also want to remain in my current price tier which I believe is the lowest for non-obstructed view seats in the lower level.

    I would be extremely surprised to find cash parking for under $40 within a mile of the stadium for the Dallas game. The operators vary their price based on supply and demand (you could find several relatively close lots for $20-$25 when the team was bad in '09 and '10).

    This is true about the ease of entry/exit into the metro lots, but keep in mind that all tailgating is strictly prohibited. If you are looking to have a few cold ones by your car before the game I would park in the cash lots mentioned in the OP.

    All the info you seek is in the first post in this thread. There are no shuttles from the Morgan Blvd. stop (or any metro stop) to the stadium. It is exactly a 1 mile walk (15-20 mins) from the station to FedEx Field.
  5. Well, considering the Redskins recent record in primetime games and their all time record wearing throwback jerseys I think they made the right choice. In fact, I can't seem to ever recall the Skins winning a game while wearing any kind of throwback jerseys. The only primetime game the Skins have won in the past 5 years was the Sunday Night season opener against Dallas in 2010.
  6. According to Lavarleap56 we are not wearing the throwbacks against the Giants. He is hearing burgundy tops/white pants for the G-Men and possibly the throwbacks for the Ravens game.
  7. If you guys want to pick what the team wears on Sunday, cut Danny a check for 2 billion and you will have some input into it. Until then, we will be subject to the whims of the coaches, players, Danny, and Bruce Allen. The white on white look was a player requested lucky charm during the Gibbs years. The burgundy on burgundy is a painful reminder of brutal losses during the Zorn era. We are not likely to see either combo for years to come. Bruce Allen loves the gold pants; but clearly understands fans' affinity for the Burgundy/White combos due to the success the team enjoyed with them during the first Gibbs era. I would say we will see a heavy rotation of the burgundy tops and gold pants combo both at FedEx and against teams that choose to wear their whites at home (like the Cowboys always do) as long as Bruce Allen is with the team. We will likely see both of the classic burgundy pants/white tops combo and the white pants/burgundy tops combo for at least one game per year each. Since Bruce seems to like the gold pants, I would say that we will see the white tops/gold pants combo on the road more often than white tops/burgundy pants combo. Remember, each team is allowed to wear their alternate/throwback uniform for 2 games per season. We will be wearing these again for the Monday Night Game against the Giants. The only way I can see these traditions changing while Bruce is around is if the team goes on some incredible winning streak wearing a certain color combo like they did with the white on white in 2005. I also think we will see a new throwback/alternate jersey each season from now on as it gives Nike and the Skins more opportunities to make money. The days of seeing the Skins wear just 2 uniform combos for home and away are long gone. Apparel manufacturers have realized what an incredible amount of money can be made by releasing new jerseys. In fact, most European soccer teams now come out with a different home jersey EVERY SINGLE YEAR to maximize retail profits. Since Nike is a huge sponsor of European soccer, I expect them to follow a similar model with NFL jerseys. Get ready for new throwbacks every year!

    The guy in the OP was messing around, trying to "take our minds off the misprints."

    You simply take the Morgan Blvd. entrance into the Stadium instead of Arena Drive. You can take exit 13 or 15A off 95 to get there. The parking attendants will direct you to the Green B3 lot on your left. Morgan Blvd. is the least used entrance/exit from the stadium so you should have a pretty smooth time getting in and out in addition to parking closer to the stadium.

    Ah, understood. Thanks for the clarification fellas. Edit: I do have a friend that has 2 Orange passes for every game along with his 4 zone A club seats, but I imagine the 2nd parking pass was a courtesy given to premium seat holders.

    Perhaps I am misunderstanding your post, but I have had 2 tickets since FedEx opened and have received a regular Green Parking Pass for every game, every year.

    I think anyone who was present will tell you there was a big difference in the postgame traffic after the 12/30/07 Cowboys game (91,000 people there) versus the 12/12/10 Bucs game (66,000). Traffic and stadium access has been slowly improving over the past few years. Hopefully the reduction in stadium capacity will help too.

    Does anyone have any idea when the tickets will be shipped this year? Last year I know they came late because of the strike but does anyone recall when they have arrived in previous years? Thanks!

    With regards to the "Green B3" parking, that is part of an attempt by the ticket office to divert traffic away from the ridiculously overused Redskins Rd. and Arena Drive entrances to the ridiculously underused Morgan Blvd. entrance. Regarding enforcement of the "Green B3" parking, I noticed that for the lower demand games (Cardinals, Niners, Vikings) last year the parking staff were letting people with "Green B3" passes park in any Green lot. However for the "high demand" games (NFC East, Jets, Pats) it was much different. The parking lot attendants were strict about making people with "Green B3" passes that tried to enter thru Redskins Rd. or Arena Drive do a u-turn and have to circle around the entire stadium to get to the Morgan Blvd. entrance. Biggest problem with the Green B3 parking IMHO is that it's on the complete opposite side of the stadium from the world famous ES tailgate! :silly: ---------- Post added April-11th-2012 at 12:56 PM ---------- That is 100% correct. If you hate the traffic leaving games, enter the lots using the Morgan Blvd entrance! Anyone who complains about the traffic simply doesn't know about Morgan Blvd.
