      We’re still doing this?  Absolutely!  Despite all the compelling reasons to just let everyone go home and enjoy and extended offseason, this is not an option.  The games must be played, and therefore we the long-suffering fans will feel compelled to watch.  Even games no reasonable football fan would choose to watch like, for example, today’s Redskins Jets game.   

      Today’s convergence of sadness features the 30th ranked scoring offense (Jets 14.4 ppg) versus the 32nd (Redskins 12.0 ppg).  The first team to 15 wins!  With no playoff aspirations the compelling story lines for this game are largely limited to watching young players (hopefully) develop.  Dwayne Haskins gets his first home start and Derrius Guice is back from injury.   
       
      My, reasonable, goals for today’s game:  
      1- Score a touchdown 
      2- Score more than 17 points.   
      3- Haskins throws for 200 yards or more with no interceptions  
      4- Guice runs the ball at least 10 times and finishes at 3.5 yards per carry and healthy.  
       
      Hoping for a win at this point feels like setting myself up for disappointment, so I’m happy to settle for an entertaining loss.  
       
      Special thanks to @pez for some excellent Guinness beef stew.  If you absolutely have to stand in a frozen parking lot at 9am, the best place to do it is at the Extremeskins Tailgate with Pez and @Huly.  Great fans, great people. 
       
      The Redskins have declared for the following players as inactive: 
      Paul Richardson  
      Colt McCoy 
      Deshazor Everett 
      Chris Thompson  
      Ross Pierschbacher 
      Vernon Davis  
      Tim Settle  
       
      The Jets declared the following players as inactive  
      Nate Hairston  
      Darryl Roberts  
      Paul Worrilow 
      Matthias Farley  
      CJ Mosley  
      Jordan Willis  
      Leo Koloamatangi 
       
      1st Quarter - Redskins 0 - 6 Jets
      If you wanted to sit in the cold and watch a football game with some Jets fans at FedEx, but were worried that there were not enough seats available, I have good news.  There’s plenty of space available, so come on down and prove you’re a real fan by sitting though this in person.
       
      Jets dominated the 1st quarter even though they only scored 6 points.  The reason being that Washington managed only 13 yards of offense and a single first down.  
       
      Question: Is it still a check down pass if the QB never looks at anyone else?
       
      2nd Quarter - Redskins 3 - 20 Jets
      The Jets have achieved an insurmountable 13 point lead early in the 2nd quarter.  All hope is lost.

      Is there a more perfect example of the Redskins offense than their first scoring drive in the 2nd quarter?  Interception gives the Redskins the ball on the Jets 16 yard line.  They proceed to march 10 yards backwards before kicking a field goal from the Jets 26.  It's perfect.  Two or three more field goals we can call it a day. 

      The Jets score again and if feels like they are are just piling on at this point.  Three touchdowns in the first half for them, just three points for the redskins.  Our streak of no touchdowns has now extended to 15 quarters. 
       
      3rd Quarter - Redskins 3 - 20 Jets
      There is a spider slowly descending from the ceiling in the press box and it's the most interesting thing that's happened during the third quarter of this game. 
       
      I have decided to allow the spider to live, provided it does not touch me.  I'm off to get some more caffeine. 

      4th Quarter - Redskins 17 - 34 Jets
      The first wave of Redskins fans, the few that are here, started streaming towards the exits after that 4th Jets touchdown.  As if the Jets didn't have this game wrapped up in the 2nd quarter. 
       
      Jet have now more than doubled their average points per game and have matched their season high of 34 points (and they missed two field goals in this game). 
       
      TOUCHDOWN REDSKINS!  THE DROUGHT IT OVER!  Guice took a short pass from Haskins  all the way to the house.  2 point conversion is successful on a pass from Haskins to Quinn. 
       
      The Redskins score another touchdown!  This feels like an embarrassment of riches, even if we are still certain to lose this game. 
       
      End of Game.
       
      Let's review those reasonable goals I mentioned earlier:
       
      1- Success.
      2- Close enough, I'm counting it
      3- Haskins did throw for over 200, but unfortunately did have an interception. 
      4- Guice was not given the opportunity to run the ball ten times today.  He did however score on a 45 yard TD pass and finish the game healthy.  I'll take it.
       
      Even though the Redskins lost, it was good to see the offense show some faint signs of life and end the streak of games without a TD.  The team looked competitive for much of the second half, and perhaps they could have made this a fun game if they carried that same energy throughout.  It was good to see Guice and Mclaurin show out today.  I think both of them have a future with this team that I look forward to seeing.

Fellow Redskins Fans BEWARE!!

ES member CJPSUAVE or CSUAVE22 recently purchased Caps Game 5 seats and Game 7 seats off of me for the Penguins Series. I sold CJ 8 tickets for each series at a heavily discounted price of $190 for game 5 and $250 for Game 7 in a Private Club level suite. CJ sent me an email and said he had 10 friends that are all Redskins fans from ES that are also diehard Caps fans that really want to go to the game. I met him the next day to give him the tickets and he said all of his friends backd out on him and he needed to get rid of them. I immediately knew something was up but it was game day and I couldn't do anything about it. Mr. Rajnikant Patel aka CJ turned around and sold the seats to 5 Penguins fans for $250.00+ and some other ES members for even more then that.

It gets worse. Mr Rajnikant Patel calls me up immediately after the Caps win game 6 and he said, "all of my friends are committed to going to this game they aren't going to back out on me this time. Can you please help us out because we are diehard skins fans and we love the Caps?" I am a big Caps fan also and I will not sell any seats to Away Team fans. I sent the Paypal request and Mr. Rajnikant Patel paid hours later.

It's Wednesday night 7:15 and the puck has dropped. I'm looking around so I can buy CJ and his fellow Redskins fans some beers but he's no where to be found. I start asking around if people know who CJ is and they are looking at me like I'm crazy. I own the whole suite so no one would have gotten seats in there if they didn't buy them from me. I asked a couple of the guys how they got their tickets and they said this guy from Extreme Skins promised them a 20 person suite for $350 a person. I was flabergasted as soon as I heard this. I could not believe that a fellow ES member would rape his fellow fans like that.

Those of you that think my prices are high I'm sorry. I've been nothing but fair and I think seats on the Club level for Game 7 of the playoffs for $250 is a steal compared to the $400 and up prices that were on Craigslist and the $600 prices the Caps were charging. The fact that $10 upper level seats were selling for $225 was ludacris. I'm all for making an extra dollar or 2 but not at the expense of my fellow fans. If I had known Mr. Patel was lying and was going to rip off fellow ESers I would have sold the seats to other members.

I would like to warn all of my ES family that if this man ever tries to purchase tickets off of you please be careful because he will most likely sell them on the market for a higher profit and if you get caught selling your Redskins Season tickets over face value Danny Boy could take them away from you. He has done it in the past.

Below is an example of emails with prrof that this man lied. I am not making a false acusation here and I do not and will not slander anyone that does not deserve it.

Sorry Ted. That really sucks.

I wouldn't be opposed to a new rule banning people such as this guy.

That name sounds familiar to me, somehow. I bet that name, Rajnikant Patel, is a fake.

Rajnikant Patel is the name that came up in Paypal when he paid for the seats. The only thing that really pissed me was when I met fellow ES members that were duped by him.

Well, I was going to start a new thread about what I had happen this weekend....but I didnt know if it was a good idea....as this guy wasn't an ES'er anyway...but it really torked me off how this guy was.

Starts off with a guy posting on Craigslist that he has section 103 row 2 tickets. Right beside the Hogettes......The guys name is Peter Hughes. Older man it sounded like. Advertising the tickets at $3300.

Had my uncle call this douche up......and the guy first off is a real ass. For $3300...800-900 over face already, he wouldnt throw the parking pass in. Green parking pass. Said $550 more for parking...if you bought the season..he'd do it for $500.

So I end up calling the guy, b/c my uncle was so pissed off. I did the same thing...said I've got $3300 cash...throw in the parking...and we can make it happen man. He wouldnt budge. So...I got really irritated......and started askin if he was a Skins fan...'Yea I go to every game'....I said...well you should be ashamed of yourself trying to make that much off other Skins fans man. I said...$650 isn't enough profit for you? He didnt really say much back. Other than 'I'm sorry you feel that way'. I told him that I hope he understood that he signed a contract that he wasn't supposed to 'gouge' tickets like that....as it was against the contract he signed (as he said he has 3 sets of tickets in his name)...not to mention the boatload of other tickets he had.

While all this was going on..he's talking about where he plays 'bridge' at...and the spots he hangs out at.....all not 'cheap' places ....this guy didn't 'need' the money. Cmon..

So I know this isn't ES related really..but I have this dude's phone number..and just ask that I wish there was something we could do to people like this...I understand making a buck..but damn....trying to scalp up over 1k on a season??? That's shameful man...

Peter Hughes was his name........had a post on Craigslist.......If anyone wants any more info.....let me know...wish I could tell the ticket office about this douchebag...and the thousand others that do this same thing......reason why people can't afford to go to games anymore.....

I called him earlier in the year and he said the same thing. I was just wondering how this guy can come up with all his prime seat locations. He won't budge an inch, so somebody must be buying them. Also, there is a Skins player agent selling them on there too. Watch out for him.

Yea man.....torked me off trying to make a boat load of money off fans.....and he said he was a Skins fan himself.....lowlife man...

So...be careful of that dude..

Said he sold the same tickets for $4800 last year...which is crazy. People just should stop buying high tickets like that......then we could get some damn decent prices for them!!

Sheesh:chair:

I figured I would post again, since I'm back on page one.

Bought four from copperbird for the Skins-Boys game at a fair price. We had great communication, and he shipped fast. Great seller to deal with, and I highly recommend.

mark327 - All around great seller. Good communication, fast shipping, great deal for face value, very positive transaction all around.

nicholas - I bought Skins-Eagles tickets from him months ago, and he is a seller you can trust. Kept in contact with fast shipping. A+

Here's to ES, the best place to conduct Skins related business.

I bought 2 tix from "Redskinstime" and was very disappointed that the section that he offered is not what was sent to me.( Told me I'd be getting 423 but sent me 415). I specifically asked for 423 as we are attending with friends. I've sent him PM''s to see if this was a simple mistake, but have yet to get a response.

Be careful people.. I know that 95% of people are honest but unfortunately there are a few that are not.

There was a miscommunication regarding these tickets on my part, totally my fault. I've sent Sterling a PM explaining the situation and offered a full refund for the tickets, but have not received a response.

:applause::applause:just want wanted to say thanks to "Skins-Canes-Mounties". just got 3 LL tixs for eagles game from him. paid just $4 over his price($99 + 10% tax fee)per ticket. $12 bucks extra for the guy to deal with a few back and forth emails and than taking time out to mail them to me is a deal i will take any day. tickets arrived quickly. i saw some threads from last year, i think, where some long time board members were letting him know the etiquette of selling here. he has taking the advice well. thanks again. my dad is quite the happy man today with tickets in hand.

Just completed a great transaction with Pigman99 for 3 LL Skins-Eagles tickets. Super fast payment and great communication. I'm generally paranoid about shipping to buyers over the 'net, and this transaction could not have gone any smoother!

I just sold 2 Club Seats and parking to TLC. He's such a pain to deal with geez...I just talk to him because of his crack on a stick at the tailgate.

Obviously I am kidding. He was great to deal with and even Fed Ex'd his payment. Very easily to deal with. Would do business again. And where's my crack on a stick?!?!?!?

Wanted to say thanks to ChicagoRedskins. I purchased 2 tix in the club section for the Pittsburgh game. Enjoyed them and he(I'm assuming that it's a dude)was a pleasure to deal with. Communication was good and shipping was good.

Thanks Chicagoredskins.
