What is loved about RFK is the history there...all the great teams and great games that were played there. It has little to do with the building itself...I have a picture of RFK framed on my wall...what it means to me is all that was accomplished there...the building itself was a cookie cutter stadium and not that special at all. If the Redskins won more since moving into Fed Ex people would feel differently about it. Basically, we link RFK to our winning years and Fed Ex to our losing years.

It was more than that too, it was the overall atmosphere. RFK was a rockin' place that was always packed to the gills, FedEx always looks half empty on TV. It's always disappointing to see so many seats empty in the gold section.

Re: Why the FedEx Field Bashing?

Aside from this, it does have good aspects. Tailgating is great, club level that is second to none in NFL. The field is well kept. Huge capacity. The inside of the stadium isn't bad and when the SKINs are rolling it is a very intimidating homefield advantage, maybe not quite like RFK but we were a championship team then. I'm sure many owners around the league wouldn't mind owning FedEx and their team's too. It's definately a facility that has what is needed to keep the team here for a long long time.

I don't care for it much. I am a season ticket holder who got tickets when Fedex opened, after 28 years on the list(went on my parents tickets for many years before that). It is too damn big. That is why so many fans of the opposing teams get in. There are just too many tickets available. The place has never been as loud as RFK was. Doubtful it ever will be. They whore you on parking and will let anyone park anywhere, so as to clog everything up. The music absolutely BLARES in the upper deck, yet they don't seem to ever get 'hail to the redskins' loud enough. And for God sake, can we get rid of the idiot 'Funky Four'. From the moment you step into the place you feel like the building is just there to separate you from your money at every turn. There is no home feeling to it at all.

Re: Why the FedEx Field Bashing?

I have a friend at work all the way here in Harrisburg who has season tickets and he told me that Philly fans were harassing him in the parking lot at FedEx after the game. They were chanting "Redskins Suck" and no one said anything to them so he told them to F off and almost got his @ss kicked. No one stepped in to back him up. Now that is sad.

Re: Why the FedEx Field Bashing?

I remember going to RFK and couldn't believe how intense it was... I actually had a pretty rockin' time when SC traveled to FedEx to play Va. Tech three years ago... imo, it was pretty damn loud that day too.

Re: Why the FedEx Field Bashing?

Are you serious with some of these??? I have been going for 34 years and have seats in the club level. 1st and foremost it is not second to none. Just go up 95 to Baltimore and you will get a taste of somthing really nice. I have been to at least 10 other stadiums and all are better then FEDEX. Pittsburgh(Food) Tampa (Girls), Carolina, Baltimore, Seatle, Sand Diego, Denver, New England, Tennesse, and Cleveland. Did you happen to see the field this week? It look like a sandlot. They had no grass in the center of the field, pretty much sand. Did you miss that? And we have a full stadium when we are winning but incase you haven't noticed, no winning. Then throw in the lack of decsent food, event staff who have their heads up their butts. Also did you realize it took them 8 years to light the American Flag at night. I know this 1st hand as I complained about it for 8 years till one day I said somthing to the right person and it was lit the next night game. FEDEX sucks and will never be like RFK but considering it is new it really is like RFK a concrete shell with no services inside

As much as it pains me to say this, the plans for the new cowboys stadium look pretty nice. I really like the huge jumbotron/scoreboard that they're going to have suspended over the field but I wouldn't be suprised if a punt or two hit it each season. Really, the only downside that jumps out at me is that it is going to be filled with dallas fans.
Oh well, I'm sure our Skins will just love to pi$$ all over their nice new stadium the first time they play there.

I don't want to offend your friends or anything but that act is just soooooooo annoying if you go to more than 1 game a year. It's the same thing every time, and lately they don't even seem like they want to be out there doing it. Plus, it now starts with a FedEx commercial that seems to last three times as long as the actual dance.

Re: Why the FedEx Field Bashing?

I wonder if they'll build the field with that nasty hump to it like they have now.

Those MF'ers.

Oh, and sorry I didn't warn people about that link. It contains a picture of "Scary" Jerry Jones, so it's probably NSFW
