Yes. Please see the cost break down, I show the companies I will be using. I have talked to everyone and made all arangments that need to be done in order to get the ads put up (minus send them the money, as of yet).

If anyone wants to donate a decent amount of money I will be glad to send you all the names and contact info of the people Ive spoken with.

$365, almost 5% there....

Do you get full use of the billboard or will there also be space for CBS to promote the Lavar and Chad show (or whatever it's called) on 106.7 FM The Fan?

The "Sell OUR team" thing is a bit melodramatic and will have absolutely zero effect on anything that goes on in Redskin Park. But it's a free country. Good luck with the effort.
Yeah he is not selling this team. And what effect it has...dont know, but at least DS will know that fans are unhappy enough to actually do this will and this will at least grab his attention. The media will be all over it. May get him to think what is next, if they do this, maybe there willing to not buy merch, tune in, or come to games. Melodramatic, yep a little. Dont stop doing your game reviews, there good

Yeah cause the half empty stadium on Sunday, this coming Monday, and the boos certainly don't get his attention.

Not to beat a dead horse, but Thanksgiving/Christmas are coming up. do you know how many homeless shelters, foster homes and juvenile centers could use $8,000 and really make a difference at this time of the year?

Yeah the half stadium and the boos are good, please dont stop that. This still would have a better effect I believe. And a seperate drive to collect funds for the homeless or shelters for the coming up holidays I would be very interested with giving to that as well.

The approved message will read "Sell OUR Team Danny Boy". They do however; require us to say something along the lines of paid for by individual fans of the Redskins in small print.

The are very pro free speech. They recently ran a "atheist ad" and do controversial ads.

Also the reason why we decided on the bus ads was due to billboards being outrageously expensive in the DC area (25-40k). Flying a plan with a banner is several thousand only last one day, one time. Put adds on trucks is several hounded a day and is only on 1 truck. Basically the cost of 10 buses for 4 weeks was by far the most "economical" thing to do.

$453! Over 5%

Keep it coming!

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

For me, there would be a portion of this endeavor that I would consider inexplicable. On the other hand I wouldn't want to come across as emasculating any worthwhile effort that may be beneficial, however Metro Bus ads seem to be just a little......well

Too much of an emotional overtone, and doubt it would even be permissable. Good luck! though.

If they pull this off, it will definitely get some traction. The local media will be all over it.

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

good luck fellas, should be kinda funny kinda odd if you and your donators pull it off.

question: what happens to the money/donations if you dont reach the 8k goal?

to the people mad that they arent doing this for other more deserving charities . . . . if you feel so passionate whats stopping you?

lol at people who complain from their couch or computer chair what should or shouldnt be done.

go skins!!
