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

Why not just donate the money to the MDA? I'd chip in if it comes to that.

Why not just donate the money to my daughters collage fund?

Just what kind of collage is she making that you need to fund it?? I made one in third grade with construction paper and markers.

Hey, I have an idea -- instead of sending money, let's just make some collages of DS that we can post up through town. It would be just as effective.

How much does it take to make a collage these days? Does it cost more than a diorama? Do kids still make dioramas?

this is a fair point- posting fliers all over town would work just as well...make a simple template and people print and post. pretty easy.

WOW surprised by people sticking up for Danny Boy. Guess people are happy with his football decisions. Unbelievable.

Why not rent an Air Plane to fly a banner over the stadium.

I wanted to do that, but the problem is a lot of people would want their money back. And we cant really prove we sent your money to the MDA. We can prove there are buses driving around DC with signs on them. So we came down to the decision to give it back to everyone rather then be accused of trying to steal this money.

Also we cant send some peoples money back and use some peoples money to send to the MDA. Its kind of a everyone gets their money back or everyone sends their money to MDA.

Even for those that dont want to support us, and you are not going to support anyone else, and you are not going to do anything else but suffer for the rest of the season and maybe longer, send the money you would otherwise spend for something like this, a jersey or whatever and give it to the MDA or another good charity.

thanks

I agree, SS.

Otherwise this seems like an exercise in futility. Certainly you don't expect Snyder to sell the team just because you bought bus ads?

Let me put this differently: I own my house and no one tells me when to sell it and when not to. You could put ads on every bus in the USA demanding that I sell my house but I won't care, since the only voice that matters is mine.

The same goes for Snyder and the Redskins.

Obviously we dont expect him to sell the team. Honestly he has proven that he wants to win, however; my thought is that his constant meddling with the team, putting VC in charge, and hiring and firing coaches has put the team in the position it is in.

We say sell the team but mean get out of the operations and management of the team. More of an impact to say Sell The Team.
