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

Let me also say that Snyder is plenty embarrassed by what's going on right now. The latest move banning signs inside the stadium has already backfired and has had unintended consequences. Every media outlet has picked up this story and is running with it non stop, reinforcing the perception that Snyder is all about Snyder.

The thing is this ain't Detroit or Cleveland folks. People expect those teams to be bad and won't give a second thought about going to the playoffs better yet the Super Bowl. The Redskins, on the other hand, are a proud franchise with very loyal and proud fans, and a very proud city. We expect to win here. And after we're done winning, we hoist up our heroes and put them in the Hall of Fame. This is no ordinary decline by just another sports franchise.

But what adds insult to injury, at least in the minds of the fans, is that those franchises are bad, in part, because they don't live in markets where NFL franchises can thrive long term. Snyder has spent millions upon millions and has fielded a very mediocre product for ten years. It's not that the Redskins are bad, we're expensively bad!

Since when does he own only 51%

He shouldn't make decisions based on what fans think. A good owner acts in the best interest of the team, in spite of what the fans want. Some of the brightest minds out there and complete morons when it comes to their fanhood.

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

First of all, the majority ownership thing is not gonna happen. The minority owners are made up of his sister and his mother among others. I also believe that a greater part reverted to him when one of the original group, Fred Drasner, was bought out. And he'll never move the team. He's a lofelong DC guy and the league makes it too difficult anyway (I wonder how the other owners would feel about a request to move due to being run out of town by the fans, LOL).
I also think the whole "Sell Our Team" theme is sending the right message. It may or may not get off the ground, but I guarantee you, DS is hearing every post of every thread (because he's compulsive like that). The guy has like 5 TVs over his desk tuned into all the sports networks. It definitely drives home the fact that he may own the franchise but it's "our" team. I'm totally sold that he is embarassed and gnashing his teeth about the whole situation and he has heads spinning 24/7 at Redskin Park trying to stop the hemorrhaging. So keep the pressure on.

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

I think a better way (and it may have already been mentioned) is to stop supporting the companies that sponsor the Redskins. Instead of Papa Johns or Popeyes chicken got to Jose's Chicken hut and Crazy Pete's Pizzaria....or whatever.

You have to make sure to let the company know the reason for you taking your buisness elsewhere. Be sure to specify that when they no longer have a buisness relationship with Washington, and only then will you patronize there buisness again.

Exactly. I think the odds that Snyder moves the team are about as good as the odds of him selling it.

Just take our local 7/11 which has a section that sells hats and stuff of different teams. Last year when we were winning all the skins stuff was sold out and this year it looks like they have sold nothing skins related. Now X that by all the places selling skins stuff and it is costing DS a bunch of money.
Show me where I said that he doesn't care about winning. Obviously you make more money when you're winning as apposed to losing. My point was that this "Make Snyder sell the team" stuff isn't going to do anything. Snyder doesn't care about us, he has known we don't like him for a long time - nothing new. The only difference is that people are alot louder about it now than ever before. Its a waste of time to put up signs or start websites that try to make him sell the team. The hate should be focused on Vinny - that is something that the fan's voice might actually have an influence in changing.

I'm not sure the whole aim of "sell our team Danny Boy" is to actually get him to sell. At least I didnt take it that way. I think it's just a cry for him to quit f'ing up the franchise. In other words, to get rid of Vinny and start doing things the right way...or else. Although the whole "or else" is kind of a false threat. Anyway, just my opinion.

mImpetert, who started this, clearly has said in earlier posts that no one realistically expects DS to sell the team due to this.

I totally agree. I guess I would just rather see something like "get the hell out of here Vinny" or "Vinny is a joke". If thats the true message behind "sell our team" then why not just say "get rid of Vinny"?

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

It doesn't matter either way. I just realized that I'm getting pissed off over some stupid title to a thread on a blog that is attempting to get the owner of an NFL team to make changes.

The reasoning behind my (and probably everyone elses) short fuse is that we are fed up with the Redskins, and we can't do anything about it. At least thats my realization...

You could donate 5 bucks and laugh your ass off when you see these stupid ass signs on metro buses and know you were a part of it.
