    Season Ticket Renewals

    I tried looking to see what's available now and it says "Your Upgrade Time Has Expired." Is it over already?

    Mine too! I am in 202 after being on the visitor’s side 200s. It’s such a nicer experience that although 50-yard-line seats would be my ultimate, I passed on the ones in 221 in the perfect spot. I just can’t bring myself to leave the home fans!!

    I sent an email to the ticket office and got this response very quickly: “Thank you for reaching out! The offer that was sent today is a "Today Only" offer. Anyone who buys season tickets today will receive and autographed Adrian Peterson jersey. The seats that are available online are not the best locations, our current Season Ticket Members will have access to the best seat locations during the upgrade program later this month. Additionally, with our new membership program, Redskins Gold, current members will receive random giveaways and exclusive access to gameday experiences. All members will also have exclusive stadium entrances and fast lanes at concession stands, expanded preferred concession pricing, exclusive game day experiences, and more!”

    I’ve been a season ticket holder for 13 years now. I definitely appreciate the changes Mr. Lafemina made. They were steps in the right direction to respecting us STHs. Discounts on food, honesty on ticket availability, the open-view bar area at the endzone and some action to slow/stop selling tickets via resale (StubHub, Ticketmaster) for extremely low prices. I am very concerned about his firing. I am one of those fans who did not attend the Eagles game. I could have gone, but really wasn’t excited about it. I asked my friend who was planning to go with me and she said she’d go if I did, but wasn’t too into it. So I sold them on StubHub at full price. That NEVER has happened to me before this year. If I didn’t want to go to a game, neither did anyone else, and tickets were going for $7 and such on StubHub. If I can sell my tickets at full price next year, I’d consider keeping them. I know they always do something to make me think we have a chance in the off-season (this year, Smith, Payne, and Guice). But I just can’t justify the cost for those times when I can’t or just plain don’t want to go. I know that pisses off the die-hards here (and believe me, I’m a die-hard by everyone outside of this thread’s standards), but I’m being real here. Because that’s what we need to do. Be real. So here’s reality the way I see it. Contrary to many, I don’t think striving to “just win” is going to solve this team’s fan issues. In all likelihood, this team is never going to be a winner under Dan Snyder’s leadership. He’s had almost 20 years to prove me wrong. The only time I had a real feeling we might have a real winner on our hands was in RG3’s first year. Even in Cousins second year, it seemed like just good luck we got a playoff game, not an actual good team. Thus, we have to become a fan base that accepts its team as losers and still roots for them. How does that happen? By engendering good will to players. Hiring people who are good folks that we are invested in personally, who try their damnedest, whether they win or not. Dan Snyder has shown he has no interest in this either, most recently by firing Lafemina and Swearinger. If my relationship with the Skins were with a person, my friends would all tell me it’s toxic, abusive. The Skins management doesn’t care about me. They never apologize. They treat me like s-it and try to make it up to me the next day (offseason) by telling me it’ll never happen again and this time it’s going to be different. I know I shouldn’t accept this treatment but I still do. How long will I? I’m really not sure. Joy P.S. Or maybe we’re just cursed because of the name.

    Yeah I was actually just letting folks who may be considering 100-level tickets that, at least for this game, they would have been able to sit the whole time as well. Everyone sat, 200s and down. (and I love the 200 level too!)

    For those of you who didn’t get your “season ticket benefits package” (the name for the box with the charger, USB drive, and pin), I stopped by the ticket office at the stadium on Thursday night and picked it up no problem. Both peanuts and popcorn were listed as 50% off for STH ($2.50 instead of $5), but none of the ones that listed popcorn at that price had it. The one place that DID have popcorn did not honor that price. Anyone else have luck getting the discount? Joy P.S. My new seats are awesome. Home side under cover but don’t even know it unless you look up. AND for those of you lower, the 100s and dream seats in front of me sat the whole game (of course it was preseason...).

    Yup. It was happening when I renewed on 3/1, but the story didn't get to me until the afternoon or maybe the next day that he wasn't at the combine. I always knew there was a chance his alcoholism would send him away, but I didn't expect this, especially right as the offseason gets going full swing needing its GM. (And I doubt it's his alcoholism at this point after reading today's WaPo.) Insanity. I feel duped. Still, I have to think I'd still renew. I'm a dumb die hard used to the abuse.

    Wow. That's disturbing. The only thing you may be missing are the visitors side 200-level seats. Make sure you go to Navigator and choose "Lower Level" so that you can also see those. There is still a pair in Sec 218 right now for example (not what you're looking for of course.) Thanks for the info.

    Those of you talking about the special offers - remember the people who have posted so far only can see lower level midfield/sideline seats. We can't see endzone or upper level because those are cheaper - you have to call the ticket office to deal with that. I'd *think* today some folks with lower level endzone or upper levels would be up today. Maybe they can post an update on what's open there. Lower level midfield/sideline is still all singles at this point.
