  1. I agree with you. I don't see any point at all (I gave up my tickets this season after 18 years and I haven't been to a game yet, but if I were to go, I could buy the same tickets I gave up for about $15.) But as Hoover-ball (above on this page) explained, some people really carry about the perks of season tickets (training camp access, on-field access, tradition of seats, etc.). It's clear to anyone that financially it's not a good investment given the rock bottom prices now, but some people make that choice for legitimate reasons. I don't agree with it, but I certainly understand it.
  2. Really? I can't think of one single area, whether football-related or business-related, in which the Redskins haven't demonstrated gross negligence at some point in the past few years. Why would this be any different? (also, I don't mean to make light of a very-serious health situation)
  3. Dwayne Haskins should be starting immediately. The Bengals announced that Ryan Finley, 4th Round draft pick, will be starting. I'm sure the Bengals don't exactly have a stellar offensive line and playmakers, but they're putting him out there anyways. I'm so sick and tired of all the people who say Haskins shouldn't start because he's not in a situation to succeed. Give me a break - most teams who draft in the top 15 weren't very good the year before. Simplify the playbook, put him out there, see how he competes, see how he leads. It's a lost season - time to see what he's got. We're
  4. How many season ticket holders are there left? I honestly don't think there are that many. I cancelled my tickets this year after 20 years. And I too went off on the ticket rep that I was cancelling not because of the parking or the crappy food or the lines, but because of Bruce Allen. Also, it's not because I don't really intend on attending any games (although I haven't yet this year, but because I can get seats game by game in my exact section for a fraction of the price). In early September they sent me one of the season ticket boxes with the license plate holder, except minus the t
  5. I disagree. I don't think Miami has been worse than we have over the past 20 years. I think we all (myself included) forget how long we have been truly mediocre. We often make comparisons to the Jets or the Browns or the Dolphins saying at least we haven't been bad as bad as them. True, we're not as bad. We're worse: Since 2000 (inclusive): # of wins: Miami 144, Redskins 129 # of seasons with 11 wins (or more): Miami 3, Redskins 0 # of seasons with 4 wins (or fewer): Miami 2, Redskins 3 Playoff appearances: Miami 4, Redskins 4 Playoff wins:
  6. I didn't renew my season tickets last year after 20 years for this very reason basically. I can now go on ticketmaster and stubhub and buy tickets in my old section and row (454) for $20, a fraction of what I'd have paid otherwise . . . and that's on top of preseason and the games I don't want to go to at the end of December when we're 5-9.
  7. Of course the sell-outs stopped several years ago. Anyone who attended those games (I went to almost every one from 2001-2018) could see that by 2016 forward there were thousands of unoccupied seats in the upper deck. The team was giving those to ticket brokers to then sell on stubhub for pennies on the dollar just to allow the team to keep up the charade that the games were sold out. It was all sort of a joke - the team would announce 70,000 in attendance and everyone at the stadium with two eyes and a brain knew that was a complete lie. Were they giving manipulated/fake dat
  8. The sellout streak ended several years ago, not last year. Last year was when they finally admitted it. I'd guess the last true sellout was during the 2015-16 season, but who the hell knows.
  9. Huge missed opportunity but not surprising, as we have the weakest and most insecure GM in the league. A real, competent, secure front office would absolutely grab the opportunity here to flip an aging and unhappy but valuable player for multiple high draft picks. Instead, we've got Bruce Allen trying to convince Snyder that "we're close," that even though things are ugly on the field and in the stands, "we're close." Can't go trading our starting LT when "we're close." Can't fire me because I'm gonna get the stadium deal and, also, "we're close." Brutal. It's missing stuff like this,
  10. I feel basically the same way as you do. It's next to impossible for me to root for the Skins to have a poor season, but I'd stomach it if it meant major wholesale changes in the way the front office operates, which would be the only way we could achieve long-term success (i.e., something other than a wildcard berth every four years or so). But I've come around to the inescapable conclusion lately that it doesn't matter how bad we are. Why would a particularly bad 3-13 bloodletting convince Snyder that he's run this franchise into the ground and that it's time to act like a no
  11. I didn't renew my season tickets this year after 20 years but nonetheless just received a box with the license plate holder and pin. I guess the sales office had to do something with the hundreds (thousands?) of extra license plate holders collecting dust in the office. I'm guessing there was a dramatic drop in renewals this year after people like me realized last season we could go on ticketmaster or walk up to the box office on game day and buy the exact same seats for the games we want to attend and not have to waste money on preseason and games in late December when we're 4-10.
  12. This is a good website https://aviewfrommyseat.com/venue/FedEx+Field/seating-chart/football/
  13. This may have been discussed earlier in this thread . . . but I think the question of whether or not we should have cut Alex Smith a few months ago hasn't gotten the discussion it deserves. We should have cut him and taken the entire cap hit in 2019. Anyone being honest about it (i.e. not Bruce Allen) could tell there was no way Smith plays in 2019. So why pay him for 2019 and 2020 when it's clear that by 2020 (or earlier) we'll have a long-term replacement at QB on the roster? I understand that PR-wise it may have looked bad to cut him so soon after such a serious injury, but they could
  14. I'm "arguing in support of" exactly what he said: that the Redskins need to earn something. I'm just using different numbers than he is to do so. Fine, we all know from your post above that the Redskins and Giants have each won 38 games over the past six seasons. We all know from my post above what the numbers are from 2000 to present. I don't know why the commentator chose six years, but let's go a little further to ten years. In those extra four years, the Redskins won 25 games. The Giants won 36 games and a Super Bowl. But here's another number
  15. Yes, the Skins most definitely do need to "earn" something. I think fans (myself included) forget just how bad to mediocre we have been the last 18 years. Since 2000-01 season, inclusive: Super Bowl wins: Redskins 0; Giants 2 Playoff wins: Redskins 1; Giants 10 Seasons with 11 wins or more: Redskins 0; Giants 4 Seasons with four wins or fewer: Redskins 3, Giants 2
