    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    Yup, but absolutely unequivocally correct in every way.
  2. Well, the inevitable occurred. I wish Gruden well wherever he ends up. Hopefully, this is only the beginning of the changes.

    Is it time to go Nuclear on Snyder???

    We already did Nuclear in 2009. What now?

    The day it all went south: November 5, 2000

    For me, in hindsight now, the day Dan bought the team is the day it all went South. I think he was too young and inexperienced to have been approved to buy the Redskins. The owners made a mistake in approving the purchase. I look back at what could have been mainly with Marty Shottenheimer, for me that was Dan's first massive mistake that set the tone for the next decade and beyond. You had a guy that goes 8-3 in his last 11 games, and then you fire him for an unproven college coach who clearly had no idea the kind of commitment it takes to coach an NFL team. I have nothing against Dan personally, I've never met him...my issue is he has taken something I used to love and made it a miserable experience because he refuses to change. Change can always happen and things can always improve, but the best leaders know what their limitations are and hire the right people for the right positions. I believe Dan's biggest problem is that he has never really listened to those that know professional Football. Yes, the Redskins have made him, a rich man when he bought the team, even richer, but those days are coming to an end if something doesn't happen soon.

    Reasons for watching Redskin football

    I feel this season is turning into 2009 all over again. The team was an embarrassment that year under Zorn and ended with the hiring of Bruce Allen and eventually Mike Shanahan. I can’t believe 10 years later here we are again...and have nothing really to show for the last 10 except RG3’s rookie season and 2015 with Cousins starting. ...so I watch because I’m married to the team for life and because I hope maybe one day I can perhaps see this franchise return to something that resembles the glory days of my youth. I mean this can’t continue forever right? At some point things HAVE to turn around...right? Will it be another decade before that happens?

    Game Day Thread - Redskins at Giants

    I must say the Redskins are a bad team right now, but the whole thing from top to bottom just reeks of bad ju ju and has for quite a while. An enima is sorely needed here. Typical that Haskins would have to get his first regular season reps against Jones and the Giants. Everything right now is in the gutter. Change is desperately needed.

    Game Day Thread - Redskins at Giants

    This season has literally now become about getting Haskins reps.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    For me, I will always be a fan and watch the games on T.V, but I am not spending another dime on the Redskins either through merchandise or ticket sales unless drastic and significant change happens and I'm not talking about simply a head coaching change. Put simply, I want this organization to be run like a professional NFL team.

    The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    Let's talk about taking guns from homes. Who would do this and how would it be carried out? There are so many guns in this country off the record...are you going to forcibly search every home? If I tell you I don't have any, are you going to kick my door in without cause? Do you realize how many homes in America have at least one person living there on anti-depressants or anti-psychotic drugs? Do you realize that most of that information is protected, and could not just be released by the mental health community? Do you realize from a logistical standpoint the communications nightmare all parties would need to overcome to enforce such a doctrine? As a person who has a child who was institutionalized for mental health problems for several months, and when home on anti-psychotics/anti-depressants....I can tell you I would fight that tooth and nail. Nobody was ever in any danger from my guns.

    The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    Exactly, what you end up getting is a defacto ban by using the background check to make the whole process of obtaining a gun unreasonably cumbersome. For instance, with concealed carry. I believe in shall issue for concealed carry permits, not may issue. MAY issue means arbitrary decisions can be made by a "gate keeper" about my right to conceal carry a gun without rhyme or reason.

    The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    I have spent most of my adult life working in a Detention Center, believe me....schools with armed security are not run like jails or prisons. The guard you are talking about I believe was actually a uniformed school resource cop in the Florida shooting, and he has rightly been fired for dereliction of duty. I think they even have pursued a criminal neglect case on him. I see the problems we have and while they may require different solutions, they do have some parallels if you apply logic and reason. Doing nothing is not the answer, but doing something that accomplishes nothing isn't the answer either. Too many are focused on the wrong thing.

    because taken at face value all that sounds great until you see what you have to give up or do to make it work in practical application.

    The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    I am all for reasonable rational logical solutions, but I think we are on the same page when I say I don't want new laws pushed through based on emotional responses that accomplish nothing to solve our mass murder problem.

    The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    I agree with your post, but to this point specifically I agree whole-heartedly. The reason is because what they really want is a disarmed society. Many don't even try to hide it anymore. There are Democrats running for President who are openly threatening confiscation now. The ultimate goal of many of them is to disarm the law-abiding majority of good people in this country, and...well...criminals just have a few more laws to skirt or break to get what they want. Which shouldn't be hard when many of these same people who would happily restrict your gun rights also believe in open borders and sanctuary cities

    The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    Your fear of your kids being shot up is exactly the kind of fear that the anti-gun crowd accuse gun owners of. Statistically, your kids probably have a better chance of being struck by lighting or winning the lottery than being shot in a school shooting. Having reasonable security at the access points to a school is common sense. I liken it to a courthouse. You can't enter or leave a courthouse without walking through security. Why should a school be any different? Planting armed security in the schools is a far more rational solution and has a far greater probability for reducing these incidents than ban gun X. I find it amazing sometimes that many of the people who will vehemently argue about gun control will not apply that same logic to the drug trade and illegal immigration. We don't need the wall, because it won't accomplish anything. The wall won't stop the drugs from coming across the border, BUT we should ban this type of gun or that because it will stop mass shootings.
