Skins 75th anniversary patch Jersey ripoff
 
I am not a tightwad by any means, but it seems a bit excessive that the 75th anniversary replica jerseys (84.00) are $15.00 more than the regular replica jerseys (69.00). Its the same damn jersey with a patch glued on it. Guess the danny cant ever cut us fans a lil break.

Also its my 200th post! and it only took me 2 years.

i'd live with this if danny boy could give us cheaper water at training camp. I don't know how much it is for sure but last year it was like 3 bucks so i didn't even look for it yesterday. I'd rather die by the heat than pay that. I mean, we are the fans. The real fans going to training camp. Its not like he can't sell it for 2 dollars in 102 degree temps.

And the Jason Campbell Authentic Patch Jersey is $305. I just can't wear the Replicas, I'm such a jersey snob. At least I got my ST Authentic for cheap during his legal troubles last year.

That is an easy choice. If you don't like the price, don't buy it.

My point is that it is aggrivating that the team I grew up loving and supporting is raping myself and other fans with every chance they get.

Every team does crap like this, they put out a new jersey or throw a patch on it and hike the price. It's not exclusive to the Redskins. If you don't like it, don't buy it. Very simple. You can't be milked if you don't allow yourself to be.

Wow sounds like everyone here is drinking the Redskins kool-aid. The way the (the danny) built the skins into one of the most profitable franchises is on the backs of the fans. How else can you explain the fact that that skins are at the top of franchises after only having 3 playoff appearences is the past 15 or so years? This is yet another example, maybe I should cancel my season tickets, or stop drinking water at training camp. All im saying is treat the fans with a little respect.

There's nothing about kool-aid here, it's very simple. If you don't like it, don't pony up the $$ for it. Seriously, what's so hard about that? The people that are getting "ripped off" are the ones that are willing to pay the money. It's all about what value you place on something. I guarantee that even at the increased price, those new jerseys will sell like crazy. It's simple economics. The price is right for enough people to warrant that price, otherwise they wouldn't be able to charge that price.

Are they sending you a bill for the patches? No. Stop whining, nothing wrong is being done here. If they didn't release jerseys with the anniversary patches, people would be asking where they are.

Buy it or keep your money and quit complaining. Every team does this. If you want to complain about merchandise, complain about the NASCAR drivers who change paint schemes every few races. :D

Of course, even then, the fans CHOOSE to buy the newest stuff or not to.

If you want the Redskins to lay off marketing and ways to generate revenue, we'll be the Pittsburgh Pirates or Kansas City Royals of the NFL.
