  1. NFL teams need to come to terms with the enviroment we are in and make adjustments. What pisses me off about the Redskins is I call in trying to buy Loge seasons and would pay 5500 for two seats.. which is roughly 50% off what they want you to pay for them. Now, I know in the past they had a 2 for 1 deal, but will they offer it to me? Nope. Hell, I would even sign up for 10 years. Yet, I can go on stubhub and pay less than that per game for the entire season because the Redskins are dumping Loge tickets on Stubhub that they can't sell.. How the hell does that make sense? It must have something to do with their season ticket contracts is my guess, probably cant offer season tickets at some % lower than what they have STH's signed up for and they are happy and content having their cake and eating it too.
  2. I've always wanted to use the famous Ricky Bobby line on a Dallas fan after an at home loss... I think we should all make it our goal to use it on a Dallas fan after the game... LOL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCL2H9KTh-8 Ricky Bobby: Losing is never fun, but here's a little something to keep your spirits up. [extending middle finger] Ricky Bobby: It's real nice, I got it at Target. It was on sale.
  3. Dear lord, just looked at Stubhub for the Cards game (hadn't done that in a few weeks) 60 dollars on LOGE tickets, 200 dollar dream seats and 80 dollar lowers? holy ****. If this keeps up all year it will be very interesting to see how bad the season ticket sales drop for next year.
  4. In my opinion the Washington Redskins ticket office has to be the worst ticket office in the league. Everything they do is smoke and mirrors. As stupid as it sounds, I've always wanted to be a "season ticket holder" for the Redskins, just one of those things I always dreamed about as a kid and the Redskins have completely killed that experience for me. Last year I bought seasons and the entire process was horrible in everyway. This year I bought season tickets on the aftermarket, saved a ton of money and have better seats than I could have gotten from the Redskins ticket office. It's win-win. I know that's no big shock to most of the folks here because they already knew that but just thought I would share.. I owe a large chuck of my savings to Mark The Homer honestly, and had I not be reluctant to follow his advice last year I would have saved last year too. His articles on the ticketmarket and heads up on good deals etc is awesome.
  5. Last year was the first year I've "officially" had season tickets. I had 1x club seat and 4x standing room only with orange parking. Previous years I had just purchased the tickets I wanted when I wanted instead of officially being on the hook. Long story short, my experience with the ticket office was absolutely horrendous. When I first called to inquire about tickets I was told I couldn't purchase SRO 4 packs without having at least two club seats then a week later they called me back and said I could buy one club seat + SRO 4 pack. I didn't think much of it other than figuring that they had spares near the beginning of the season and went ahead and bought them. I don't remember exactly what I paid but it was like 4K. After buying the tickets I had several questions about various things through the season, never heard from my account rep at all, no responses so I called back and was told he was no longer employed and they would assign me another rep. Never heard from the new rep. Got multiple conflicting information about AAA Fan Zone tickets via the phone and via the window. I had questions about getting seats in Loge bar seating (2 seats and was willing to sign for 10 years) after a fellow ES member sold me tickets there and said they had a 2-1 special, he gave me his account rep, called her 3 times, never heard back. Called the ticket office and the guy said no they wouldn't do that. (very rudely) Long story short, they lost my future business. I drove from Va Beach to FedEx every game last year, used 5 work vacation days in the process and spent crazy money on gas, supplies, tailgating and stadium drinks/food and would have done it again had I been treated professionally. You would think they would value their season ticket holders by at least having professional account reps who are courteous to deal with. I don't know who runs their ticket office but whoever it is sure could improve things. It's like everytime I called they couldn't keep their lies and truths straight and never wanted to answer a question with a straight answer. I felt like a police officer doing an interrogation on a suspect, it was a very shady experience. I'll still go to 2-3 games a year but I'll get tickets on the aftermarket or through ES sellers.
