Angry Why don't the Redskins have better merchandise

I have to say this... everyone talks about how great a merchandiser Dan Snyder is... it's crap. The Danny, or whomever works for the Danny, doesn't put out the best merchandise for the Redskins. I've seen beautiful jerseys, caps, jackets, and other things for other teams, but the Redskins consistently drop the ball. Why was it so hard to find a black EQT for the Redskins, and so easy for everyone else? Why do we make more money than the Yankees, and Yankees seem to have fresh caps and other things every year? Why don't the Redskins have hip-hop friendly gear when they play for, ironically, Chocolate City? Dallas seems to have no problems doing it, and neither do New York or Philly. Step your game up, Snyder... I'm sick of those Flexfits and ashy looking baseball caps.

Re: Why don't the Redskins have better merchandise

Here's a piece of merch I've been dying to see - a "Hail to the Redskins" cover album.

Get the Marching Band to do it, clean up the original, and hire some of the bands who play club level to record versions of our song. Sell it for $15 at the shops in and around the stadium. I'd be all over that.

While we're at it, why doesn't redskins.com have a downloadable ringtone?

Re: Why don't the Redskins have better merchandise

The only thing I can think of reminds of my years in the Restaurant industry. I was a manager at this place called "Houston's" for several years. On occasion, we would have to destroy quite a bit of old uniforms. I once made the suggestion of giving them to a charity, shelter, Goodwill, etc. It was brought to my attention that we didn't do that because we didn't want the logo'd uniforms winding up on the backs of vagrants living in the parks and such. Basically, they didn't want to "tarnish the name".

You follow me here?

With their new partnership with Sprint, I would think that one is on the way.

Re: Why don't the Redskins have better merchandise

I got a chance to go to a Redskins Store for the first time ever not too long ago, and the only thing that pissed me off about the merchandise is there was nothing below a Large...that is rediculous. Another time my bro tried to order me a shirt for Christmas on line, and they sent us a kids large instead of a small. I'll just stick with my Darrell Green jersey for now I guess

Re: Why don't the Redskins have better merchandise

Really, I don't think the team has a lot of say in the merchandise choices. The manufacturers (Reebok, Adidas, Nike, Zubaz, the Chinese kids sewing for WAL*MART, whatever...) choose the designs and which teams to sell and at what volume. There are also league licensing issues and I'm not sure if the team can just make whatever they want. For instance, I'm sure a pink Yankees hat wasn't Steinbrenner's idea.

eBay - redskins items in Caps, Hats Fan Apparel Souvenirs

There's plenty of nice designs of hats made for us, they're just not sold in the team's store.

Contract reasons with the uniform provider maybe?



edit: I just looked in the team store for myself and there are 31 different hats for sale...what do you want, caps with lights and helicoptor propellers on the top?

Re: Why don't the Redskins have better merchandise

Hey, if you want "Hiphop-friendly" clothes, just take whatever size you wear and multiply it by 3.

If you wear a medium, get an XXL.

Re: Why don't the Redskins have better merchandise

You know what's odd? Anyone in the DC area seen those Washington Wizards and Washington Capitals jerseys with the number 9 that says Jurgensen on the back? What's that all about?

That's funny! I hadn't heard about those. I think Iíll run out and get a Magic Johnson Angels jersey.:cheeky-sm

I also agree that the black jersey's are pretty awful.

Especially if they're hip hop-friendly.
