Isn't that the same philosophy as DS? I said it, I'm doing it, results be damned.

mImpetert gets a lot of credit for taking this on, and I hope that it will be something he will remember positively for the rest of his life. Kudos to him and his team for that. I just hope the results, intended and unintended, don't end up hurting the Skins in DC.
Agreed, I think that they rushed into this idea and momentum keeps them thinking that it's the right message.

Props for doing something and getting the coverage though. A clever website could've gotten the same coverage likely.. or a little guerrilla marketing around DC

I thought that he bought some of the minority stakes?

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

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. [/quote]

So you're saying if I don't give you money its my fault if the skins suck next year.[/quote]
don't forget to make a shirt

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
I didnt want to post this because i know how easily people get offended around here but:

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....
lets say for the sake of argument you reach your monetary goal. now you work a deal to have your voices heard, via the buses. the media grabs it, and runs with it. now what? Snyder is definitely not going to change because of the ads. and you just wasted a bunch of money.

if you ask me it'll fizzle out by the time the money is ponied up

the media has already grabbed the story... it's going to likely take several more weeks to get the money and by then.. whatever

Why couldnt they just say "hire a Gm" or "Fire Vinny"

Also why do they insist to call him Danny Boy. You think by saving $8,250 and calling him Danny Boy that he's going to take you seriously?

Well I know that's in jest. Some people I think actually believe Snyder is the equivalent of Hitler

Yeah Zuckerman just helped the sale go through then he sold his share to Drasner and Snyder in 2000. In 2003, Drasner was gone

That's not scheduled until Nov. 16 for their Monday Night game against the Ravens

Some interesting comments from their owner

our point exactly, every one takes it way to lieterally, like i have said 100 f-ing times snyder is not goin to sell the team but he has emarassed us has he not, we lets embarass him, and i think so far we have because some of the media blocks he has installed at his fortress fedex field AKA jacke kent cooke stadium so screw snyder and his henches i know they will probaly come for my tix after i put my name out there but i don't care, he can take my tickets but he can never take my fan hood, because if he does take MY tickets thats over $13,000.00 and thats far from an exageration i have 11 tix to each game and green parkin, i'm as die hard as they come that's why it's so hard to give up season tix, after waiting 9 years thats what i'm willing to do since i love the team that much
