    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Lions

    I agree that Haskins needs to mature and also don't have much confidence that he will ultimately be the guy here (or anywhere), but.... I think there are some relatively recent examples of great QBs demonstrating some similar behavior during their learning process. Nothing is apples-to-apples, but Brett Favre and Steve Young both showed all sorts of signs of immaturity. Favre ran around like a lunatic, tackled teammates after TDs, etc. Young openly pouted as a backup to the best QB of all-time. So, even though I'm not holding my breath for Haskins, there are examples of guys who act immaturely and childish ultimately figuring it out and winning in the league.

    Dream Seats not to Dreamy

    I had basically those same seats for the Alfred Morris division-clinching win over Dallas in 2012. We were right around the goal line rather than the 10, but basically the same opinion. Granted, the atmosphere for that game was better and I got lucky that most of the action happened in our end zone, but when teams were on the other side of the 50, it was tough to see what was happening.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    I'm genuinely curious how much the other owners care. On one hand, you could make a little more money if a traditional/historic franchise in a big market was pulling its weight. On the other hand, all the owners compete with one another so is it worth potentially strengthening an opponent for a slight bump in the bottom line? I don't know that answer, but I can imagine that they don't mind having ****ty teams they compete with.

    I'm sure they know...but it eliminates them having something to spin.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    It was one of the good things LaFemina was doing...authentically showing the apathy by keeping the tickets off the secondary market. That way, you can put eyes on where you actually stand with fan interest based on face value tickets. This current approach only inflates attendance and allows the Redskins to state things like "even at 1-9 we had nearly 65,000 people show up!"

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    I see your point, but I don't agree. I want any scenario that results in the Redskins most quickly being good again. If I could diagram a PERFECT outcome, then sure I'd want it to happen without Snyder. But, he or Allen being champions won't diminish it for me. I've been following this team for 37 years. I was here before they were involved with the team and, God willing, I'll be here after they are with the team so I'm not going to let their involvement impact my enjoyment.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    I have missed more Redskin football this season than I did at any time since I've been an adult (I'm 42). I have seen SOME of every game this year, but I also have not seen any one full game. And that is with ZERO conflicts so far. The only other time I haven't watched a full game prior to this year is when there were things I couldn't get out of.

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    I don't regret letting him walk AFTER we helped him inflate his price. But I do regret the two tags and not figuring out a more reasonable long-term deal prior to that.

    Completely agree...and I am sure I felt that way when I was younger. But to some of these guys, it's a job and they just happen to be very good at it.

    Post-Curse D.C. Sports Thread

    Despite no "ownership" of these recent titles, it's fun to be so close to it. My personal dry spell isn't snapped, but it's nice that DC is clearly not a city of losing anymore (and now it's more than just a one-off run by one team). I really cannot wait until either the O's or Skins wins something...hahahahahhahahaha. Someone just promise to replace my Depends when that time comes.

    No, I don't blame them at all. I was just explaining why you don't see players forcing themselves off of bad teams.

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    In a perfect world, yes. But we care more about the culture than the players. We are stuck here for life while they have the ability to only pass through (5 years, max) while getting paid quite well. That's why I think we don't hear about more players trying to force their way out. Money is money and, to some, this is a job more than a passion.

    I know it's all Snyder's fault and all, but I'd like to point out that it's been frustrating since 1993 when Gibbs left. Even though it's clear that Cooke was 1,000,000x better than Snyder, I think history has confirmed that our Golden Age is due more to Beathard & Gibbs than anything/anyone else. Cooke became the majority owner in the mid-1970s and basically oversaw mediocrity until Gibbs rolled into town. Once Gibbs left (and Beathard was already gone by then), he and his sons oversaw mediocrity again. Sorry for the tangent, just saying that our frustration stretches back years before we even knew what a Dan Snyder was.

    Time To Change The Name?

    I'm close to this too...if only they could retro-fit the new name to everything that happened after 1998, that would be perfect. Once the Cookes were gone, the Redskins name shouldn't be tarnished.

    Report: Snyder, Allen Angry About Capitals and Nationals Success

    I don't disagree with your assertion...I was just wondering if we could find numbers to back it up. Looks like the post above goes a long way toward proving that.
