Seeing as 2 games of the year are worthless and AT LEAST 4 games are worth maybe 3/4 face(being generous) that means to sell the other four games and break even someone has to sell that $99 for 173.25. It just doesn't happen. The people who drive up the prices are the opposing fans to the big games. If our fan base went to more games then it wouldn't be a problem. It isn't the season ticket holders at all. Blame those who aren't season ticket holders (and could be) but still complain.
Now I kind of see where you are comming from. It still doesn't make sense as to why I paid $1100 for 2 $99 tickets. In reality that guy damn near paid for his season tickets with that 1 game.

I don't know what that 2,000 is unless your getting one of those packages that you have to pay for something besides the tickets. The one deal I saw like that you have to pay that every year to keep the season tickets.
I am basing this off of what I remember reading when I put my name on the list 6 years ago. I thought that it read something like 2,000 (plus or minus) for the first season only and the cost per ticket. After the first season it was cost per ticket only.

That is just what I remember from the reading (6 years ago) I could be wrong or mistaken though. All I know is that I reserved 4 seats for next season; I have paid the refundable $100 per seat, and I requested lower level. We will see what happens.

I bought them 2 weeks in advance and I purchased the lowest priced ones located in the section that I wanted to sit in from Stub Hub. I did not shop around on other sites, maybe I should have. On the other hand I feel more confident purchasing from stub hub than from an individual seller from something like "craigs list". With all of the fraud and scams these days I like to purchase from a trustworthy source even though it may be a tad more expensive.

Your missing the point with my statement. You have to protect the integrity of your venue. If only people on the season ticket waiting list have a shot at the game then opposing team fans can not get them as easy. Stubhub allows any fan to get the tickets and the majority of the time I bet they do go to the visiting team. Was anyone on this board at the Pitt game? Probably not because it was 60-40 Steelers to Redskins. It was quite possibly the lowest point of Fed Ex field history.

IT IS AGAINST the LAW! You can not discriminate when selling an item to the public,you must provide a way for everyone who may be a customer to be given the same oppertunity.Being a fan of that team has no bearing on the situation at all.

Actually it is and its not. I don't think they should, but a few world series back (and my memory is foggy) one of the teams put a zip code restriction on the tickets. Theoretically it kept the visiting team from making to much of a statement. (i think it was the Rockies/Red Sox). The bottom line is still
If the Skins play winning tough football, the visiting team fans will stay quiet.

Re: F... Selling Tickets to the Visiting Team

Fair enough. (Can I put street address restrictions? so if I don't see a Skins banner at a house it goes on the no- sell list? )

Well you're wrong. A lot of people on this board were at the game and yes it was probaly 25% Steelers. Realistically. It was way more than any game I have ever seen for sure. To me it comes down to this. Unless someone was at the game they should be quiet. If they didn't go they can't complain about those who did and who they cheered for. if we want only Skins fans at the games then all the whinny Skins fans who complain about this need to go buy some stinkin' tickets. Plain and simple. The problem is not the ticket holders selling the tickets. The problem is the fans who don't buy them.

amen to that brother. It reallly sucks that so many fans sold their tickets to opposing fans. I am sure that there were people who sold the tickets because they geniunely couldn't go, but it sucks when people are just so caught up in making money off the redskins. I wish that Mr. Snyder would go back and limit the amount of people that the stadium could hold. It might drive up demand once again as opposed to letting anyone in. I can say that I have seen on other redskins messageboards that they had been selling tickets at face value. I can tell you at RFK for a big game that would NEVER HAPPEN!
