Denial of free speech @ games?

Wow, after reading about the fans attending last night’s game at FedEx field donning anti-Snyder / anti-Cerrato shirts, towels, etc., and subsequent threats from security (some armed allegedly), I was shocked. Is Dan Snyder really that thin skinned? Amazing.

Wow. Pretty pathetic by the Danny and Vinny. But is anyone really surprised? I love the Snyder-Vinny "Dumb and Dumber" T-shirts. Classic.

Good for Dan Steinberg for posting this in WaPo.

Great shirts, I guess the truth hurts.

Re: Denial of free speech @ games?

Do any of you here on this board know of any legal verbiage on your season ticket contracts that prohibit ticket holders from wearing, or displaying, materials that are anti-Redskins or inflammatory?

Re: Denial of free speech @ games?

This is just another example of why we are a second (if not third or fourth) rate organization.

PR is the #1 concern of the owner. Not the o-line, not the fans.

Snyder, you had your 10 years. Time for plan B which means a REAL GM who will not allow you to make any football related decisions.

Fine we'll pay 2009 prices for hot dogs and soda elsewhere rather then the Dan's 2056 prices.

It probably has some sort of catch all that says they can throw you out for any reason they determine. By using the ticket to enter the stadium, you agree to those terms.

Just shows that their focus is misplaced. Again.

Re: Denial of free speech @ games?

Wow, just got done reading the article and I can't believe that this is a true story. I sware one day my minds going to realize that rooting for the Redskins is bad for my health and make the final switch to Ravens fans. I mean suing season ticket holder, kicking out fans. Mr. 2/3 Snyder should consider why his teams like this in the first place (2 out of 3 being a reference to spending top money on top talent in the coaching and player department while keeping his best friend on as GM. Heck now he's really 1/3 as the reason he hired Zorn over GW was because he liked him better, i.e he wanted another friend.).

By the way why isn't Vinny called a General Manager? What the heck is an Executive Vice President? Vice seems to suggest that there's someone above you calling the shots, oh wait I just figured it out.

I guess the next thing is he will ban ESPN and thier reporters. Hell most if not all sports writers in general for that matter.

All have been extremely critical of management.

Well I wouldn't be surprised. Sal Palantonio really came after Vinny with questions during the pre-game show. I was sure Vinny said to himself midway through the interview that doing this interview was a mistake. Of course hopefully he's solidifying his contacts so he can get back on ESPN after this year instead of picking WR's, TE's, and CB's.

It's the private sector; they can limit people's free speech if they want to.

Re: Denial of free speech @ games?

Per one of the comments on this story in the D.C. Sports Bog, I fear for the part-time female security guard that was almost apologetic to one of the incensed fans stating that she was just doing her job and didn’t necessarily disagree with that fan’s protest, just carrying out management’s directives. Hope she doesn’t indeed lose that job, but I would think after last night she may be looking for alternative part-time work anyway. Who’d want that position?
