    So about this Chicago Game?

    I'm not sure this makes sense to me. You determine sell outs by tickets sold and gate numbers right? Those are cold hard facts. Are you saying they manipulated and sent fake data to the nfl? And if the sell out streak before 2018, why were there these articles??? https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/redskins/the-redskins-say-theyve-sold-out-every-game-since-1967-the-streak-may-end-sunday/2018/09/11/d86d29d0-b5d4-11e8-a2c5-3187f427e253_story.html After the game: https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/sep/16/redskins-50-year-sellout-streak-ends/ Are you sure you are not thinking of them admitting about the season ticket wating list? That wasn't a thing for a decade yet they kept up the charade.

    Even if they don't replace him this is addition by subtraction

    If tickets are the cheap and Snyder really is "Just a fan who wants to win", why doesn't he just buy the remaining tickets so we don't get taken over again.

    But our fans apthatic approach is fairly new. But it wasn't ALWAYS like this. The sell out streak just ended last year. For YEARS we had the highest attendance in the league. So yeah, now our stadium is basically a host destination for opposing fans. But this is, for the most part (vs Pittsburgh 2008 MNF aside), a new development.

    Either way, this is absolutely PATHETIC!!! You would think with home field advantage, even with a team as terrible as ours has been, the record would hover close to 500.

    Ramsey for TW straight up?

    I'm not sure if straight up will get it done. We might have to throw in Norman

    No. They don't "miss" it. But they will shell out $250 for a Mitchell and Ness throwback.

    Thank you for your response. To be clear, I wasn't advocating it in any way. I'm suggesting that I'm surprised Snyder has not thought to do it yet for $$$ and revitalization reasons. Per your post, if anything, it would further drive the fanbase away. Which means he'll probably do it.

    I'm shocked, honestly, that Snyder hasn't considered changing the name at this point 1) Could you imagine the extra $$ it would bring in? With a new name comes new logos and new jerseys. Look at every year there is an expansion team... people JUMP all over the newest merchandise. How many of those anniversary jerseys from (was it 2002? 2003?) do you still see around. People gobbled them up 1a) And they will sell. Despite the current depression, we are still a great fanbase. If you haven't read this think piece, it makes a great argument that we are a loyal, tested fanbase and not a bunch of bandwagoners like some franchises just north. 2) It may be a spark to bring people back to the team. A new identity, a new QB and a new stadium down the road. As much as it would suck, it could revitalize the fanbase. Anyways, sorry for going off topic there, that point just jumped out at me. Another thing... if the skins DID move and 8 years later a new team came to DC.... who do our current fans root for? Our relocated franchise with all of its history or the new start up in our back yard?

    Have we seen and heard enough from Norman yet?

    I'll take him and his contract over Norman right now. Cap room rolls over. Norman is def gone. If fuller sucked, and we released him in the same time frame, at least we have more money. Or he grows in the role. I'd rather have "maybe suck" and extra cap space vs "definetly suck" and less cap space every day.

    Old and to expensive! Time to get some young blood back there!!!! (Think we can trade with Andy to get Fuller back )
