    2019 Redskins Schedule Rumors, Leaks, & Predictions

    Last 1605 kickoff we had at FedEx was 2004 against Cincinnati. Cold and blustery for the second weekend in November
  2. I've been saying the same thing for some time now and I'm a dime ahead of you.
  3. Very brutal and a very honest article. Truth hurts in the end.

    Enough is enough. A fond farewell.

    The difference between these franchises is ownership: the Capitals have a front office that lets the people they hire do their jobs without interference; the same cannot be said of the B&G.

    Snyder is 10 or so months older than me so I can be assured we will not see a new owner before I am six feet under the ground. As I mentioned in another thread, I am finished supporting this - to quote @Skinsfan1311 - Dumpster Fire of an organization.

    We'll never find a coach that will be able to turn this team around under current ownership.
  7. No doubt watching a dumpster fire would be more enjoyable in VA Beach than at a place that doesn't serve Coca Cola products.
  8. I had to pass on tickets this past season due to being on the company RIF list as a result of the contract I had been supporting (for 20 years) coming to an unexpected end; the invoice was due 12 days after I got my initial letter and could not justify the $3k for two lower bowl seats and parking at that time. I got extensions to the RIF due to the contract end date and additional responsibilities as part of close out ... (total time was four months) During that time, I was able to be part of another contract within the same organization; one month later (and two months after I officially said sayonara to my tickets, I got an e-mail saying I could renew my tickets again. I looked at the map and saw none of my seatmates had renewed. I chose to take a pass for a number of reasons. Although I have been following events in the league ... (hard to avoid in a market town) ... that validated my reason for not renewing, this article clearly emphasizes why I'm done supporting this organization. Good people who have the best knowledge about the game are run out of town. I had hoped that, after disposing of the old lap dog nine years ago, that we'd see a kinder and gentler owner; one who would let the people he hired do their jobs while he sat back and let it all transpire. Someone told me long ago that a leopard never changes his stripes; sadly, that is the case here with current ownership. This is definitely not the same franchise that JKC owned and cherished; or, as the old adage goes, these are not your father's Redskins.
  9. More on this from the Richmond Times-Dispatch ...

    Season Ticket Renewals

    Last season was number 14 for me and I did not renew for financial considerations (on employer's RIF list when invoices were due) but, yeah, I had noticed the same thing in recent years. I have found ... (probably in my "old age" as well) ... that the heavy proliferation of bass in current music today can induce a headache; even at lower volumes (which happened a couple of weeks ago at a bowling center), it happens because the bass is so heavy in the song itself that it feels like the building is going to shake. Even when I came off the RIF list after Memorial Day when brought onto a different contract, I declined the chance to renew in June for a myriad of reasons with this infusion of divisive political rhetoric into the game being the primary. Your post reminded me of another reason why I took a pass.

    Season Ticket Renewals

    As a [now former] 14-year season ticket holder, I haven't received anything since 24 July when they were peddling free concert tickets for renewing. Perhaps I made my position clear enough that they know not to bother me. LOL For S&Gs, I checked my old area at Ticketmaster ... my two seats, the three next to them, and both aisle pairs in front and behind me are all available. In August !!

    Season Ticket Renewals

    Coming soon to Webster's online dictionary: an http reference to this post by @josh35b when formally defining "clusterf**k" And the justification for not pursuing tickets after coming off the company RIF list early summer continues.

    Season Ticket Renewals

    Geez, they'd have to pay me twice that to drink Budweiser products. LOL If the same organization runs concessions at the stadium regardless of the event, then I suspect $10.50 is what you all will see in 12 days.

    Season Ticket Renewals

    Let's see ... Pepsi products make me quite ill. I discovered this the hard way a year and a half ago. For the rest ... I don't drink inside the stadium because I drive home; lemonade has same sugar content as regular sodas which, for me, is taboo; the press release last summer noting unsweetened iced tea would be available through the fountains never materialized with different responses to my inquiries and no follow up, including someone with premium services who was always on point with correspondence; three bills for beverages in general is brutal, and downright ludicrous for bottled tea/water. The $10 bottomless Diet Coke was a blessing. Since I can't drink Pepsi products without getting sick and three bills gets close to the cost of one ticket, I am better off (economically) watching at home once that spineless Kommisar Goodell either develops a backbone or is no longer involved with the league.

    Season Ticket Renewals

    Last e-mail I got was on 24 July saying it wasn't too late to renew; that I could get a pair of complimentary tickets to one of the two concert dates at FedEx (to artists whose music is not to my liking); and I could not renew online. Gosh, I so *crushed*. NOT !! I'm with @Ashburn Dave: the league needs to get all of this political rhetoric out of the game before I even consider coming back and that would not happen until FedEx Field brings back COKE products to the concessions. #CokeIsTheRealThing #PepsiProductsRequirePeptoBismol
