    Dream Seats not to Dreamy

    Wow, thanks for sharing. I know it is just stadium operations but speaks to the dysfunction throughout the whole organization down to the ushers. It's sets a bad precedent. Letting folks sit in seats they did not pay for, empty or not, giving away food, build animosity for the fans that did pay. I know people will say who cares, a 2-9 team in a crap stadium but again, I think it speaks about the organization as a whole. Lack of accountability from top to bottom except for the occasional unlucky person that ends up as the scapegoat in the cross hairs.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    As I had mentioned before, it is like losing a friend from my childhood. I think the thing that angers me the most and I am sure good portion of fans on here, is the perceived lack of action and the factual lack of communication. To sit in your owner's box and office in Ashburn while the fans suffer and ultimately walk away without saying a word. I don't know what changed this year, the build up over two decades of suck, the way the Trent Williams and Kirk Cousins' situations were handled but this is the first year I have not gotten together with my buddies to watch a game. It's also the first time I almost find myself rooting against them in a different sense, in the faint hope that it has to get worse before it gets better type of way.
  3. Of course, I hesitated in posting the story knowing I might get a response like this. Yes, yes, I know our championships are ancient history but it was just a cool bar story that I like to tell because I know we get our share of crap but I will be damned if I will take it from a Bengals fan. My other posts explicitly display my disdain for the current regime and the 20 years or complete suck so I did not feel I had to include it on this post.
  4. I can't say I was shamed but i had one guy give me crap in a bar when we were losing, a Bengals fan, a Bengals fan in an Andy Dalton jersey! I looked back at him and said, "Yeah, we are struggling a bit right now but you know what?, I got to see my team win 3 Super Bowls. 3! Not a lot of fans can say that" I turn around drink my beer for a minute, then I look at him and start naming all the teams that had not won a Super Bowl... "Brown's fans, Jaguar fans, Lion fans, Viking fans, Cardinal fans..." I pause drink my beer, name a few more... "Chargers' fans, Bills' fans...and you guys" He looked at me and said "Goddamn Joe Montana" It got a good laugh from everybody around us.

    Why are we this bad on the field?

    How hard would you work if the company you worked for had no plan or sense of direction? The Dolphins won a game yesterday, that makes 2 for them and on paper, they have far less talent than we do. However, the Dolphins jettisoned some of their high priced talent to garner picks for a complete rebuild. They truly have a plan but also an absence of overpaid egos down there. They have guys trying to earn jobs for next year and be part of that long term plan. The Redskins have players like Josh Norman mailing it in and collecting money. We also have some young talent that should be battling to either maintain their roster spot or putting together film for another team to leave this septic tank of damn good culture. Unfortunately, I think we have too many of the former and not enough of the latter and it spills over on to the field. The level of talent divide, even with the Dolphins plan, is not as large as some people think in the NFL, at least in my humble opinion but when players don't buy in to the vision, you see lack of effort and willingness to put it on the line. They are on a 1 - 8 team with a lame duck coach.

    Redskins vs Vikings Prediction Thread: Wassup Cuz, AP Is Coming Home

    All good @bakedtater1 Hard to see how the delivery is meant in a chat board. It's finally gotten to a point where I never thought it would and it's time for the fans to take action and if that is inaction, as far as not attending games, renewing season tickets or buying merchandise, maybe ownership will notice. it hurts, like I had said before, it's like I have lost a childhood friend but with Snyder and Allen, well, it's just hard.

    Redskins vs Vikings Prediction Thread: Wassup Cuz, AP Is Coming Home

    No, not really my gig to change my team. I have rooted for them since 1976. I had season's tickets for 4 years. I went to the Hall of Fame when Darrell Green and Art Monk were inducted. So, no, I won't change my favorite team and won't entertain suggestions from folks who don't know me or my past. While I can appreciate the individual efforts of some players on the field the continued failure and lack of direction of the franchise requires drastic changes. So, I, and I am not alone, will root for a better draft position and hope for change in the front office so a competitive team can be fielded.

    Redskins vs Vikings Prediction Thread: Wassup Cuz, AP Is Coming Home

    Vikings - 42 Redskins - 10 I actually sort of hope it is worse than that. I don't know what it will take for change at this point but hoping that getting blown out routinely when you are the only game on, see Chicago (which is now a crap show) will be enough. "You Vike That' will have a big night.
  9. Love the line about Kenyan Drake doing his part for Tua before inevitably being traded for a 5th round pick. This is good stuff.
  10. I never said our colors were not burgundy and gold. I opine the pants they were wearing as recent as last year are yellow to my eyes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yellow The words yellow and gold come from the same origin.
  11. Hate our all white uniforms, looks like practice. Yellow, yes, yellow not gold, pants I can take or leave. Feel like we need a revamp of some sort. Right now, my favorite NFL uniforms, other than our's because it is still my team even with the emperor that has no clothes... 1. Buffalo Bills - when they ditched the red and went back to their classic look, it pops. Looks great. 2. New Orleans Saints - IN White, the white and gold with black outline with gold helmet, great look. 3. Minnesota Vikings - Can't say I will love the all grape look but their normal look is great mainly because I love the matte finish helmet.

    Redskins.com: Redskins Name Bill Callahan Head Coach

    Rex Ryan prefers a shoe.
  13. Good Post. The fact that he disrespected Beathard makes me want to backhand him Ric Flair style.

    Chris Thompson where do I begin?

    Sincerely, thank you for your service. No thanks on this thread though.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I don't know if that many owners like him as his actions tend to give owners a bad name. He appears paranoid and reclusive. However, he does have Jerruh in his corner and he carries a lot of weight. Why would Jerruh want to get rid of Dan? As long as he owns the Redskins, Jerruh and the boys only have to compete against 2 other teams in the division. We are what the Cardinals used to be in the NFC East. Thanks Dan.
