    Season Ticket Renewals

    I know people always complain because they didn't get something shiny that the new season ticket holder is getting. That's called marketing. EVERY company does it. The Redskins are no different. STHs, like me, already have season tickets. They do not need to entice me. They are trying to entice those who used to be STHs and who have never been STHs. It is quite logical and I never understood the hate. Also, current STHs may want to buy additional tickets. So yes, offering season tickets to existing STHs is perfectly logical too. I also got the email offer. Some have expressed concern why they are offering seats in the lower bowl before letting us STHs a crack at an upgrade. When I looked for seats, the best seats were in the end zone. None on the side lines. So I am taking them at their word that they are still reserving the best seats for upgrades on the sidelines. It was a one day offer. I'm guessing the Redskins were trying to measure how much new interest there is after the draft, in particular, drafting Haskins.

    Last year my seat picking time was May 17. I'm pretty early on the list. I think more senior STHs started about May 15. Hopefully I can move back to the Home side this year. I'm about the 35 yard line, lower level on the visitors side. It was mid to late June in 2017.

    I'm pretty sure, we always got email invitations to the food tasting event over the past several years. Being in PA, I did not go.
  5. Well the crazy rumors on Twitter are that the Redskins are negotiating a trade for possibly AJ Green (Bengals) or Stephon Diggs (Vikings). I could see the Green rumor as being possible because the Bungles are a mess and might consider draft picks. I doubt the Vikings are willing to give up Diggs. Someone on Twitter said he had a source telling him that the Redskins signed Rodgers-Cromartie to play free safety. I suppose that might be a possiblity. The Giants told him they were moving him to safety before they eventually cut him.
  6. Totally different situations. Foster has had no charges filed against him. His "girlfriend" changed her testimony under oath both times. The most recent incident in FL was ruled in Foster's favor by the State's Attorney; he/she found more evidence supporting Foster's story than hers. Even if you believe the woman, Foster slapped her phone out of her hand. He didn't beat her, kick her or abuse her like Hunt did which was on video. I highly doubt 8 games. I might even agree with the Redskins that there shouldn't be any suspensions. These guys need to stay away from these bat **** crazy women.

    Club seat sales must be way down because the Redskins are giving free upgrades to the Orange Parking Lots for season ticket holders when you renew online.
  8. So would the other 30 teams in the league. It would take at least a 2nd round pick to get Green.

    I'm such a sucker. I'm renewing tonight for my 17th year. We sucked even worse when I started. I figured by now we'd be in the playoffs 10 times by now. I'm such a sucker. But I've been a die hard fan for over 50 years now. My addiction is too great for even Bruce and Danny to break my habit. Hell, I blame Bruce's daddy for making me the addict I am. Damn it George!!!!

    Deadspin: Why Your Team Sucks- Washington Redskins

    The correct title should be DEADspin: Why your company and your writers suck!

    IF you are in the 200 level (and you are if you are under cover), let those suckers in front of you stand all game long. They are too low to block your view. Enjoy the game sitting down and jump up to cheer at the appropriate times. But use the seat you paid for. Don't be bullied by the youngsters who insist you are only a "good" fan if you stand all game long. Most of them are passed out drunk in their seat anyway by the 3rd period while I'm yelling strong from my seat until the end of the game. The 200 level seats are the best seats in the house!

    Somewhere on this board someone posted there was a rumor that the Redskins were removing the obstructed view seats or not selling them. Well, neither is true. I was at the Jets game tonight and all the obstructed view seats were there and some people were sitting in them. I assume they had tickets because there were tens of thousands of better seats they could have squatted in. STHs will get about $1 to $1.50 off of food but I saw no discounts for drinks of any kind. The discounted prices are posted on the boards next to the regular food price. Scan your ticket to get a discount....which makes no sense. IF I as a STH sell my ticket to someone, they get a discount. Might not work on the sold electronic tickets maybe. But paper tickets should work for anyone. The new end zone bar is pretty cool and should attract upper deck folks to watch from the end zone. The band is up in the corner of the club level; could hardly see them wearing burgundy sitting on burgundy seats in front of a burgundy wall. Not very well thought out. Same old Redskins...march up and down the field between the 20 yard lines and can't score in the red zone. Disappointing. The front 7 on defense did look outstanding. Our running game pretty much sucks without Guice. Maybe if Perine played longer he may have shown more after his 30 yard plus run. I'm done with Kelly. I hope Gruden is over his man crush on the guy. 7 carries for 17 yards....yeah...that will be an impressive running attack.....again.
  13. Big deal. What's your issue? The Redskins probably make more money selling on Stub Hub. TicketMaster takes a huge cut of all the tickets they sell for all events. Why should they sell parking passes on TicketMaster? All the screwball things the Redskins do to its fans and THIS is your gripe? OK.

    Yeah, I don't get this whole...."I'll never go to a game in Virginia!" Hey all you Maryland fans....people from Virginia have been traveling to your state since FedEx opened. It's not like you are traveling over seas. Hell, I travel from Pennsylvania to FedEx. People travel from all over the East Coast to go to MD. To me, VA or MD is about equidistant for me; just a different route. Dumbest argument ever. I agree with tshile though, PSLs will pretty much kill any chance I continue as a STH. I'm not paying thousands of dollars for the privilege to spend $3-4,000 more each year to buy two season tickets. I only have so much disposable income for my vice. I'm not mortgaging my house for the Redskins. As others have, I'll resort to buying a few games on Stub Hub.

    Lots of teams in all the sports leagues have this same problem. Some have tried a number of things to limit visiting teams fans but no team has really found a good solution; mostly just for playoff games. It's a free market and they cannot control the resale of season tickets. For that matter, they can't control who gets season tickets. I know cowgirl and pigeon fans who live in the DMV and go to Redskins games because they love NFL football. The bonus is when their team shows up. You can't go by address because lots of Maryland fans are Ravens fans and I live in pigeon country (Central PA). Exactly what do you want the Redskins to do to prevent visiting team fans from attending games? Season tickets cost a boatload of money. I don't blame a STH for reselling their tickets to some games so they lower their total STH cost. The other problem is a lot of companies buy season tickets and give them to employees and customers as rewards. Can't stop them from giving them to certain NFL fans. And the DMV is a huge mixing pot of people from all across the country because DC is the seat of our country's government. We have fans from all over the country here unlike Green bay Wisconsin, for example. Everyone thinks this is a Redskins problem and it is not. The internet allows visiting team fans to purchase tickets to any stadium for any sport in the country. If you see any stadium shots from large cities on Sunday, you see LOTS of visiting team fans in most any market. Heck, tens of thousands of Redskins fans show up in Dallas, San Diego, Arizona, New York, Charlotte, etc. Eliminating excess seats at least keeps it to STH and whoever they resell to.
