    Season Ticket Renewals

    I have always had my parking passes scanned since they began issuing parking passes with bar codes. I always arrive early, so I haven't experienced a delay. But I can imagine that is an issue when you get close to game time. I know the Redskins said they were not selling those tickets but there were dozens of people in every section at every game last year. Either they bought tickets or they were squatters. But if squatters, why sit way in the back and not up front in the obstructed view seats where there is little if any obstruction.

    Then that's not the Redskins selling those tickets. At $200 per ticket is way over the face value. Someone has bought tickets and is trying to make a profit. A serious profit. I'm in row 7 and my tickets are $131 each. And in the past, the obstructed view tickets sold by the Redskins was about half that. But as I said, seats in the middle of rows 14-about 19 can be excellent seats, and a real bargain if there is a true sellout . No real obstruction. But you really have to sit in the seat you want to verify there is no obstruction. That's why the Redskins used to let people come to the stadium and sit in the seats before buying a single season pass.

    You weren't imagining that. I saw quite a few people sitting in those obstructed view seats behind me all season long. Not a lot....but a fair number of folks. Just as many Redskins fans as visiting fans IMHO.

    Avoid the first 3-4 seats at each end of the row. The railings slope upward and are often at eye level when you are sitting in your seats. If you are real tall, it's not so much of a problem. Personally, I prefer to start in row 2 or 3 because of the metal railings. On the other hand, you get a little more leg room and a ledge to put your drink and food on. True obstructed views are only on the visitor side and begin in row 14. Rows 13 down are fine. If it were me, I would avoid section 214 or any other corner end zone seats. Just really bad angles to watch the game. Either look for sideline or the true end zone seats. Watching from the end zone lets you seen all the running and passing lanes open up. Very unique view of the football game. A pain when the teams are at the other end of the field but you do have the Video screen directly in front of you. Lots of fun when the Redskins are coming at you. They are not all terrible. Some are actually quite good, particularly those in the middle of rows. The problem is the "good" seats vary from section to section as you move around the stadium because of the angle you are sitting from the pillars. If you are way back in the section, then the overhead view of punts and kickoffs will get cut off. Depending on what you pay, those seats can be a bargain. Remember, obstructed view seats ONLY exist on the visitors side. All home field side 200 level seats are some of the best seats in the house.

    Oh come out of the dark ages. There are free computers all over the place; local library; coffee shops; your friend's house; work; etc. EVERYTHING is going digital. Yes, it is a transition phase. And the Redskins are having difficulties. They have said they had issues with their ticket company printing and shipping the tickets in a timely manner. Their contractor apparently failed them. There ARE options. One can always go to the ticket window at FedEx if you really can't find a computer and don't have a cell phone. Do you REALLY have no friends that could help you; someone with a cell phone or computer? Or do you just enjoy ****ing? Geez..... Oh, by the way, several NFL and NBA (perhaps even MLB) teams ONLY use digital tickets. They do not even offer a paper ticket option. Although I would bet any team would be happy to print them out and mail them to you if you really are off the grid.

    Redskins Store Online Discount?

    STHs have always received 25% off. So the current offer is the same as when we get our season ticket packages.

    I did last year. Then use a computer and go to your account and print out your ticket. Yes, we should have our tickets by now. But there are other solutions than just ****ing.

    Just use the Redskins app. Your digital tickets are right there if you completed your payment for your season tickets. Sign into your account and follow directions. Geez...... I don't have my paper tickets yet either; nor an email.

    It could be less traffic for you, actually. You now have more entrance lanes than green parking which means you often can coast right in to your parking lot. And if you are on the lower level, you likely will get out to your car before the hoards leave thus letting you leave the parking lots ahead of most folks and on the highway with fewer cars. Dealing with pedestrians ignoring the parking attendants and jaywalking is a pain. But once onto your main road, you can have little traffic getting onto your highway of choice. But it is interesting that they are upgrading you from green to purple. Do you have premium seats like Club or better; or just regular STH seats?

    The bubble is in Ashburn. Won't do any good down in Richmond. No bubble in Richmond. Explanation from the beat reporters is that Love's injury is non-NFL related. Happened in college. Just a matter of semantics.

    Groin pull I read only one opening...for Foster. Others have been on the injury lists.

    I live in Hampden Township near Harrisburg and have been a season ticket holder for 17-18 years now. It is an easy drive down. Better than what most MD and VA folks have. I guess I am an eternal optimist and hope this year will be a playoff year. There are some of us who just will not give up on the team.

    Most away games that are not on local tv. Probably at Zembies 5-6 times per hear to watch Redskins games with my friends. We sit in the back because we are not smokers. The bar gets kind of smoky. Hail!

    The poster board that says Concession Items are basically for us riff raff (100, 200, 400 level). The rest are Suites, Loge and Club seats.

    Federal law is that if you do business with someone, they have a right to call and text you. You usually can always opt out. Just call the Skins Ticket Office. I'm sure they will remove you from all marketing calls and texts.
