For whatever reason there are a good amount of season tickets in the hands of people who don't go to ANY games. I said earlier in this thread that I don't know the actual season ticket holder for any other seat in my row. They have either been empty or were being used by someone new each time. For the life of me I can't figure out why these season ticket holders don't turn them in becasue I know for a fact that you can not make a profit selling a whole season of tickets in section 419.

As for waiting lists they are nonsense now...when I got on the skins waiting list in the 80's I had to put pen on paper and snailmail it to the redskins. Now a days it takes a click of a mouse...every skins fan in the world is probably on the fn waiting list. Don't get me wrong...the redskins have a huge fanbase...selling out a 93,000 seat stadium is evidence of that but unfortunately all 93,000 are not held by the most diehard fans.

Exactly my point. It isn't like all these people went to a Pitt site and sold their tix. If Skins fans want to complain they need to start buying the tix THEN they can complain. Until then they are part of the problem. I know tix are expensive but buying tix to one game year isn't going to break the bank for a lot of fans. They ought to do that rather than bitch about the stadium or about fan attendance.

There is a very long period to wait to go lower level or else you can pay tailgate fees and there are a few select seats available at seasons end in the lowers.

However, the premium VERY HIGH dollar seats (Clubs/Dreams) There are some available now. No waiting list at all. I'm sure you know why....$$$$$$$$

With that said we are season ticket holders pay for 10 games go to 10 games period, and travel to do so. If you can't afford them and have to worry about flipping games every week I would suggest not buying them. There are alot of folks out there that can and would buy them and use them for every game.

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


This is pretty disgusting.

Given the nature of the beating we took, the national audience, the bye week we have to keep the foul taste in our mouth, and most of all the black and gold fandom overrunning or beloved home field.... Well that may be top to bottom one of our worst losses in years.

Maybe Zorn was subconsiously foreshadowing this game- after all, our team colors on Monday seemed to be Maroon and Black. Sigh....

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

I still think this whole thought process is silly. at the HOF game we were "the greatest fans", now because another team a couple hours away, and with lots of local supporters, actually supports their team the We are "the worst fans". If the Skins had scored 2 TDs, the fans would have been rocking. And the pics would have been of the Steeler fans leaving hanging there heads. We lost, it went the other way. Don't turn it into some fight among ourselves...

from CapsNut

Bleatings From a Caps Nut: About Monday Night...

Quote:
We'd venture it is pretty safe to say that a majority of Pittsburgh fans at the Redskins-Steelers game on Monday night were already living in this area. We can assure you that was the case of the Pittsburgh fan sitting right next to us in the seats that we own. No, we didn't bring our brother-in-law or our other sister's idiot boyfriend with us; we donated our extra ticket back to the Redskins for a tax write-off: Redskins Replay.

So yep, through a program that the Redskins set up to help "children in need, people battling life-threatening illnesses, active military members and families coping with a traumatic situation" a fan for the other team got in for free. He certainly wasn't a child in need though being a refugee from Pittsburgh could probably qualify "as coping with a traumatic situation." The same thing happened with our extra ticket for the Saints game too back in September (though was it clearly a child sitting next to us.)

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

This wasn't fun to read, but you gotta admit Wilbon makes some good points about our fans, FedEx field, and NFL games in general.

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

I can't either but apparently people want to justify selling their tickets to the opposing team. You must have struck a nerve.

Actually, I think it is 50/50 people wanting to bash those who do, those who do making their points.

Either way, seems like the points have been made...

Bring a crying towel for McNabb and some bandages for Westbrook with you too.

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

I just called the Redskins ticket office and picked up 2 club-level seats for the Dallas game. I go to this game every year, and it is extra nice knowing that these are at least two tickets that Cowboys fans won't snap up!
