    Redskins: no waiting list for season tickets



    That's gotta move the needle on Dan getting Bruce outta here. Seeing what's going on with the Caps, the Nats have a real chance........Dan's gotta take a look on the mirror and be like wft am I doing?

    Hopefully the organization took a good look at the Capitals this past couple of weeks and took some cues from Dan to the PS guys. There is a town ready to support the team if they ever decide to be any good.

    I know one thing.......continuing to rip seats out of FedEx to make the place look full is not the answer. Cant believe the state of the Skins.

    Fact is the capitols broke our hearts for years , however they were always in the mix . Our skins have been pretenders for a quarter century

    Agree dad and Redskin fans were resilient for many years also but these days not so much. Hopefully everyone seeing how the fans and players reacted will spur the team and the management on.

    The Caps always went about things the right way. It wasn't for a lack of trying. Snyder and Allen seem to always get in the way of winning. They seem to always scapegoat someone or fire someone who is getting too much shine,etc.....

    I don't understand why anyone would buy season tickets when you can go to any ticket website and pay half the price.

    I remember in the 80s someone pretty much had to die and not will their seats to someone to get into RFK as a season ticket holder.

    Interesting that you say that since the same person - Leonsis - owns both the Caps and the Wizards. You are correct @ the Caps. However - in my opinion & the opinion of many - the Wizards for the most part go about things in the totally wrong way - in some ways even worse than the Skins.

    The fault w/ the Wizards is with Grunfeld - their GM. His relationship w/ Leonsis is probably more of a problem than the one of Snyder & Allen. This clown has been running the show for 15 years, doing an overall terrible job & yet he was recently extended for another year. He has passed up on major talent during this time (Curry, K. Leonard, etc), traded away picks & has seen a toxic locker room during a lot of this time. His major pickups were no brainer, lottery picks (e.g. Wall) that anyone could have made.

    So you see this often goes beyond simply the owner. Let's hope that we are starting to see the beginning of the end for Allen - signs certainly pt to that at the current time & I also think that the current direction for the team is not that bad.

    For the most part he's got the Bullets wrong, but he did hire Brooks thinking that would get him Durant. Wall, Beal, and Gortat hate each other. Just a bad mix over there. To your point it isn't just on the owner, but Leonsis was trying to fix something Polin and Jordan already broke.

    Dan ran a model franchise into the ground in record time. Lol

    so basically the skins beat 2 expansion type teams in their new city, one of which is playing in a soccer stadium and the browns and bengals....

    great company to be in.

    Not the point. I remember back in the 80s when there was a 20 something year waiting period for tickets. The point is that DC sports fans are tuning out the Skins in large part because of the shitty way Synder has ran the team the last 20 years.

    IN an area that has the highest Median income in the nation, a pro sports team having no wait list for season tickets means one of two things.

    1. The team has driven the fan base away.
    2. People just have better things to do with their money than watch the Redskins.

    OK correction.... its probably both.

    was there stub hub in the 80s? No. Was there 4K TV in the 80s? No. The team hasn't been wining so naturally the tickets are down. IF we start wining that will change. IMO more people rather stay home and watch the game then to go.

    I hear that dean, but the other teams in the league deal with all of that too and they don't rank 28th out 32 in attendance percentage. These are the REDSKINS we are talking about. They own this city.

    winning solves everything. Plus the stadium is a pain in the ass to get to.
