From a facilities point-of-view, the sign police could just set up rows of sanitized porta-potties near the turnstiles. This would provide a private, clean, and safe environment the fans who are strip-searched.

I'm not suggesting that any significant number of fans should be strip-searched. That would be ridiculous! Of course, no premium seat ticket-holders should be searched - they are the most loyal fans and they pay too much for their seats to be delayed at the stadium entrances. And only one percent or less of the people in the cheap seats would be asked to step into a porta-potty to be strip-searched. Fewer still would be asked to drop their drawers and bend over for a more thorough search for possible offensive signage hidden on their bodies.

This should provide a safer and more enjoyable stadium experience for the vast majority of fans who are not detained by police and strip-searched prior the game.
Wait a minute. So you're saying that those who do not pay for premium seating are not as loyal of fans as the ones who do? Dan, Vinny, is that you? First of all, if I was going to a Redskins game and the cops wanted to strip search me for no reason, then they had better obtain a warrant. Implementing strip searches is against one's rights without reasonable cause.

And, honestly, I really doubt that football fans of other teams are going to care if Snyder is the problem or if it's Portis. They are going to see that fans must be so fed up with the team that they don't bother even showing up to the stadium. I mean anyways, if one watches football on a regular basis, they would have to be living under a rock to not know that Daniel Snyder is not a very well liked owner amongst the Redskins fans and across the league.
But, you're stuck with the bill dude! No matter what! Season ticket holders pay for the whole season before the season starts. And they paid to see this crap? I mean, what are they going to do? Stay home and eat the cost of their tickets? Eat the thousands of dollars that they spent on them? Or.............get some frustration out! Head on up to that stadium and let everyone know how pissed off you are! You might as well. I mean, you're stuck with the tickets. You might as well have fun with it.

Loyalty = $$$

I hadn't thought of the need for warrants. Well, maybe Snyder could get a judge to provide stacks of all-purpose warrants with blank names that could be filled in by the sign police just before they drag fans to porta-potties to be strip-searched.

I just read the back of my ticket to the Chiefs game... and really there was nothing on there that you can take as prohibiting ticket holders from wearing anything at all... I dont know if something different is in the season tickets contract, but nothing on this one..

Reasonable cause huh? Well, lets say that they "pat you down" and feel something like poster board under your shirt. You tell them its just a back brace. And then.................well, that sounds like reasonable cause to me.

Plus he enjoys the luxary of collecting interest on our money when we have to pay for out tickets in Febuary, and don't sit in a seat until September.

I'm never going to be strip-searched in any stadium, at any time.

Yes, strip-search them! But it wouldn't be as bad as it sounds. It would only be done in the most respectful manner, the sign police would wear latex gloves, and they would try to have female sign-police officers available to strip-search female fans whenever possible.

I went through my season ticket material and there is nothing at all about signs or anything close. There is a Fan Code of Conduct but nothing mentioned relating to what has been done by the Skins Mgmt.

I think Danny and Vinny are stupid, they do not realize they are playing with fire.
By denying the fans the right to poke fun at the FO they are going to alienate more fans and add fuel to the building fire.
This is yet another example of Danny's ego is more important than anything else...like the team, the fans, the franchise. Danny will never learn. He behaves like a spoiled child.
Who the fuck does he think is? That he is not open to criticism? That by definition is childish.
Ready, Fire, Aim!
Perfectly accurate.

True men understand the value of criticism, and appreciate it for what it's worth. Weak men get angry. Dan Snyder represents much of what is wrong with people today.

Us season ticker holders make it possible for others to watch the games on TV in the privacy of their own homes. That's been one consolation for me over the years, knowing that through fans like myself we help make it possible for other fans who are not fortunate enough to be able to attend the games to view them just the same.
