Re: Sell OUR Team Danny Boy - DC Metro Bus Ads

Awesome. I think it came way of a few smaller donations, because we now have over 60. I know you are gonna tivo the interview, but please dont record over it till i get a chance to come home.

Also we are getting about 1200+ hits a day (over 7k)! Lets be heard!

Re: Sell OUR Team Danny Boy - DC Metro Bus Ads

WASHINGTON, D.C. - These days, disappointed Redskins fans are looking for someone to blame. And for many, that someone is owner Dan Snyder. Some among Redskins Nation are calling for Snyder to sell the team, while others hope he'll eventually take a more hands-off approach.

Power of the people. That's what Redskins fans say they're using to try to convince owner Dan Snyder to either sell the Skins, or at least back off a bit.

Charles Tomasch and Chris Mitchell went to high school together in Annandale. They've teamed up with friends to create the website www.sellourteamdannyboy.com .

The guys are lifelong Skins fans. Chris painted the first car he ever owned burgundy and gold. They took it to games when the Redskins soared. After this season's Carolina game, he towed it back from Charlotte with the flag upside down-- a sign of distress.

The guys are trying to raise about $8,000 to buy 'Sell Our Team Danny Boy' ads on Metro buses.

"I'm not one to just sit around and complain. I feel like if you're gonna be a complainer, you gotta go out and do something," said Charles.

Charles has dropped his season tickets. Chris still has his tickets, but they're urging fans to skip games and if they go, buy nothing.

"If we don't show up, Dan Snyder literally owns a bunch of concrete and copper in the middle of Landover," said Charles.

By the way, it wasn't just the Jetta. Until a few months ago, Charles had a burgundy and gold van. He traded it in during Cash for Clunkers.

While I agree on some level, I do find it very comical that someone who is talking about spending a few thousand dollars is criticized when the Redskins annually throw away hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars.

I just couldn't ignore the irony.

Re: Sell OUR Team Danny Boy - DC Metro Bus Ads

So this thing is on pace to fall 2K-3K short of the goal unless the MLM guys put up the rest on the deadline.

They say the weekend box office revenues of Hollywood movies halve with every week the movie is released. This will probably lose steam and even fall short of the current pace it's on.


It's still pretty cool that you guys got a segment on the news though.

If I had already prepaid for season tickets I would still be going. I didnít say it, but I think Charles means that if you are buying tickets from stubhub or if you like to go just a couple times a year, forgo doing this. At least buy from the scalpers on the streets or from craigslist if you are going to go.

Re: Sell OUR Team Danny Boy - DC Metro Bus Ads

Skinny Tee - yeah at the current pace we are going to fall short, but we are honestly getting more and more site hits every day.

We are also working on having a benefit event at a bar, where the 5-15 cover goes to this. Plus we are in contact with Mervis Diamond and are working on something with them. Also i am not sure if the bye week is going to work for us or against us.

I would say there is a pretty good chance of this happening. But the most important thing we need is more people joining the cause, and not just sitting back watching and complaining. We need more 5 and 10 dollar donations more people spreading the word!

If you don't go to games then concession revenue will suffer and at $10 a beer that can hurt them really bad.

Yeah by all means. Do NOT buy Snyder's ridiculous priced beer and other concessions.
