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

Alright to answer a few things.

We actually wanted to go with a billboard, however; that costs in the neighborhood of 25-40k in the DC area, and there are a totally of zero billboards on 495.

We did not want to use Fire Vinny for several reasons. At the time we started this (a week ago), there was a slight rumor floating around that Vinny may get fired if we lose the philly game. We didnít want to take the chance that Vinny was already gone and we just raised a bunch of money. Plus in my opinion, and many others, it all starts at the top. Danny is responsible for all of this. I really feel he is. It is his fault we are the Raiders of the NFC, that coaches donít want to coach for us, that fans get nickeld and dimed out of everything Redskins related, that our team is a bottom 5 team, that we suck, that you cant bring signs to the game, that luxury ticket holders are getting sued because they lost their jobs, that we have no offensive line but have the highest paid player to ever play the game (I like big Al, but whats the point if we have MAYBE 1 offensive lineman that could start almost anywhere else). Bottom line this is Dannyís fault, it starts at the top.


We do not expect Danny to sell the team. I didnít expect a bb gun for Christmas when I was 7, but I asked for it anyways. Would I like Danny to sell, absolutely. I would be just as satisfied if Danny stopped interfering with OUR team as I would if he sold the team. A ad that reads Sell OUR Team sends a much clearer statement. You donít get picked up by the media for saying Mr. Snyder Please Change This, Thanks!. This is a AD, not a cover letter, no time for Pís and Qís.

We started this because soooo many fans were complaining, but not really doing anything. During times like this its great to complain about Synder, Vinny, or Zorn or whoever but at least try to do something. Even if you HATE what we are doing, I encourage to at least set up a Danny Snyder is Awesome! Facebook page (2-5 minutes tops), or a mlmpetert Sucks facebook page.

One of the main objectives we had was to encourage people to do something rather than just be content with the way things are. Our thoughts are if you think something needs to be done to fix the franchise make a attempt. If you are already thinking that by next August that there is a really really good chance the Skins could go all the way this yearÖ.. Well then just know when you are disappointed again that there is always next year.Ö.

People are making t shirts, writing blogs, mailing their fan cards in, planning to travel to Atlanta with signs, not buying skins gear, saying they are gonna give up their season tickets, skipping games, and so on and so on. People have had enough! Blame Danny, or Vinny, or Jimmy, but if you donít do anything right now blame yourself next year.

mlmpetert,

sometimes in life, you have to realize you have no control. I don't blame myself for this year, or the next, or the next. The Redskins are not a democracy, Daniel Snyder is the owner of the team. I hope he figures things out, and gets a clue. But either way I'm a Skins fan, that's just the fact.

we don't have much control but to say we have none isn't true, and to say you will sit back and wtch this go on this year and the next and the next with out doing anything, just doesn't make sense to me. it's like saying you couldn't hammer a nial with your hand so you gave up instead of trying the rock on the ground next to you. while we aren't necessarily doing it the perfect way atleast we are willing to try, and i fell like thats what makes me a fan showing that i care instead of just bitching to my boys

I don't know how true it is that you have "won over" anyone. Seems like most people's opinions have stayed the same through this thread. Granted there is a lot of discontent, and you give an outlet for that. But I don't see a lot of posts that say, wow, I thought this was stupid, but now I think its a great idea.

Feel free to count me as one who sees this as a bad idea.

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

I am still not sure how this completely retarded. If it garners national media attention, then that is good IMO. Can someone make an argument how that is bad?

I would love to see Snyder directly respond to what the fans have been saying. Not some COO henceman and Vinny constantly deny reality and blaming everything on the Washington Post lol....

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

and dont give me the "there are better causes" bs. Its BS because next time you go to a bar or by something beyond the bare necessities, I can turn that same argument against you all and say that money is better spent helping poor kids in Africa.


I dont buy it.

Why you trying to mess up our Redskins? Hater!

I don't think any really bad (or good) will come out of this. It just is what it is. Upset fans protesting...in a unique way. I suppose if Snyder was truly evil (not Hitler evil, just football evil) he could say screw all this, I'm taking this team elsewhere. But I'd be shocked if he did

It's still pretty cool that you guys got a segment on the news though.
and even cooler that the both post the same thing back to back and sometimes twice in a row haha
