    Reality check time.

    Since the passion is gone for a lot of fans, and the fanbase itself is logically getting smaller, tanking is actually ideal. Honestly, I'd be fine with a 2016-17, Cleveland-style 1-31 trainwreck. We lose out for a season or two, get the #1/#2 pick overall a couple of times, and then... Losing out: 1) Bruce Allen will HAVE to have been fired by this point. There's NO WAY Snyder could make enough excuses to keep Allen around, since his departure is the only real hope there is for the team. So, we've already won by losing in this scenario. 2) By the end of the 1-2 seasons of (more) awful Redskins football, we will have shed many of the bad players/contracts that we have currently. Hopefully the new Pres/GM/HC will have worked out an actual plan for the franchise and plenty of cap space to make it work and Dan is able to STFU and let them work. 3) The haul of picks (with or without trades down, I'd prefer down as many times as reasonable) allows the new staff to build the team the way they see fit, while our current young players are growing into established leaders for the team. By this point (2022-ish) we should be in position for an extended period of good+ football, with real hopes of #championships. Fighting hard for that participation trophy: 1) Regular 6-10 to 9-7 finishes, more mid-round picks and Bruce Allen mistakes, only occasional playoff runs, further erosion of the fanbase until FedEx is officially deemed a neutral-game site and the team store is changed to a league store. (okay, the last couple might not happen, but they might as well) 2) Fans getting to take the "moral high ground", while seeing only the short-term, BUT getting to condescend to other people about their "superior fanship". So, whatever. Football is just entertainment and Washington Redskins football is no longer entertaining/fun. If being able to admit that and seeing the fastest way to correct it means I'm less of a fan than the next guy, so be it. Hopefully the next guy sleeps better at night, and also gets a fuller head of hair and a hotter spouse from their moral superiority. #HTTR

    Game Day Thread - Pats at Redskins

    6-7 more fluke TDs and we might have a chance. "De-fence" chants are loud as hell for NE fans... Embarrassing.
  5. I'd like to see a promotion for home games, especially against obvious-loss opponents: "46 lucky fans will be randomly selected on gameday to sign 1-day contracts and suit up for the Redskins". Screw it. If we're gonna suck, at least make it interesting.

    Twitter: Raw Video of Intoxicated Jay Gruden Leaks

    I'm unhappy with the team's performance / current direction, AND I don't drink very much, but I really want one of those. lol

    Gruden announces Colt McCoy starting vs NE

    Would be fun if there was a counter: Colt McCoy announces "No, thank you" to starting vs NE

    Louis Riddick as GM?

    If it isn't coming in as GM AND president, it won't matter anyway. No one will have sustained success here with Dan and Bruce in charge.

    Is it time to go Nuclear on Snyder???

    Okay, so I've got the next couple of days off starting tomorrow, and I really need a distraction from life. I have no money to put into it, only time and effort, but I really want to push this and see what we can do with it. I'm sick of the only real escapism I have left being such a disappointment and frustration. So, where do we go from here? How can I help? Some thoughts: Online petitions (change.org, etc) aimed at NFL owners/leadership and to include presidents/CEOs of major advertisers for the NFL, sports news outlets/figures, etc. A hashtag that's unique to this attempt and can be separated from the ongoing popular tags (#FireBruceAllen) that pissed off fans use. This can be focused thru all social media. ...and so on. Honestly, if somebody wants to copyright whatever ideas really take off, this stuff could probably fund itself to include something to really insult Dan (think "Trump Baby Balloon"). Stuff like this is how we defeat Snyder and get to (eventually) take pride in the team again.

    I guess. I thought this was a 'whatever/anything' thread. My bad.

    Trying to get a new tab when clicking on google search results... Firefox > google search only switch to link from current search results. Yahoo search goes to new tab, but yahoo isn’t preferred. Do I need to change google settings or firefox?

    Is it time to go Nuclear on Snyder???

    I agree this will do some damage to his bottom line, but I still think it needs to be bigger. Dan has a $180M yacht, so a few less pizzas (or whatever) being sold won't get much of a reaction from him or ad purchasers, to the point of being a problem. If we can effect change to the league/other owners, THEY'LL get upset and have the ability to apply real pressure. Both options would hopefully embarrass Snyder, but the bigger the impact the bigger the story, the better chance of forcing him to really fix this franchise. Exactly. At minimum, we can embarrass him. Best case, the other billionaires either sit him down and talk some sense into him or possibly 'go nuclear' on our behalf.

    Is it time to go Nuclear on Snyder???

    The best approach here is the same one that gets to political commentators. Contact the advertisers. Don't say "hey, you shouldn't buy ad time associated with Dan Snyder's Redskins". It needs to be "I won't use YOUR product until you remove association with anything Redskins". The CBA protects Snyder. Next step is to pressure the league's revenue stream. Dan can't be the only person to suffer in order to force change. It needs to be felt by the NFL/other owners. No other way to really get results. Embarrassing him would be fun, and funny, but money talks. The advertisers are where it's at. Maybe try to get a joint effort with several of the fanbases of other regularly bad teams?
  17. 1. Full rebuild (shed bad contracts, trade any player over 27, if possible, for draft picks) 2. Complete overhaul of FO/coaching staff (either internal promotions or outside hires for GM/HC/DC/etc) 3. Huge upgrades in ALL support aspects of the team (training fields, training staff, weight rooms, field improvements/upgrades, etc) All focus would be on team morale, building a winning culture, improving the fan experience and winning the fans back.

    Jordan Reed Is In Concussion Protocol

    Report: Latest concussion may spell end of Jordan Reed's career https://www.yahoo.com/sports/jordan-reed-concussion-career-in-jeopardy-165924343.html
  19. The team losing on Monday instead of Sunday this week allows me the chance to work on my Redskins erotica. Some of the steamier passages include: - John Kent Cooke buying the team in 1999 - Vinny Cerrato being hired to run (ruin) the Dallas Cowboys - A drunken death match between Bruce and Dan on Dan's super-yacht Sorry to get ES all hot and bothered...

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    I'm just excited to see which injury-prone guy we draft in the mid-to-late rounds. I'm hopeful that it's at a position to back up a veteran injury-prone player. "Yeah, he has an injury history, but once he gets used to that prosthetic leg, he's gonna be a beast."

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    Possibly suspend him for "conduct detrimental to the team"? Would that change how those 6 games would apply, as far as contract years? Would Brucie do it?
