Re: Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

This IMO is one of the most inexplicable uses of authority that could ever be put on display. Talk about micromanaging!! This is just another in a series of game day indignities starting with pricey parking, and tailgating restrictions.

I'm going to hold out hope that these restrictions will ultimately wind up just being ephemeral, and that when other conditions surrounding the team improve, things will return to normal. These changes are being implemented in conjunction with a much broader picture in mind.

Sounds like a constitutional right issues that not only abridges free speech issues but also unreasonable and burdensome restriction on the freedom of the press. Someone will take it to Court and Snyder will likely lose.

Well, the "lay off Snyder" crowd must really be feeling good these days.

No interviews during tailgate? Jawohl Mein Fuhrer!

Well, if you would like to buy my tickets to make your statement, I am willing to help you with that. But I refuse to sell mine to a non-skins fan. However, my remaining tickets have a face value of $4000(they are good seats), so if you want to buy me out and make a stand then I am all for it. It's easy to say you shouldn't go when you don't have hard earned money wrapped up in it already.

Re: Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

Having been a part of the local media covering the Redskins back in the day the rule was always you can talk to tailgaters, you just can't set up shop in the parking lot. Like WUSA can't go set up their truck inside there. I think it's largely due to logistical reasons, but media has always been allowed to interview tailgaters. You just can't, as I noted, bring all your gear (namely a truck) into the lot. If I remember right we couldn't even bring cameras in either.

Maybe that rule has since changed, and if so that's unfortunate, but my guess is that something just wasn't communicated properly.

At the end of the day though we're just talking about fans being interviewed before or after a game...or not. The timing of all this makes it seem bad, but the Hitler comparisons are ridiculous

I don't think so. It is private property and private enterprise. A private business can do what it wants in terms of free speech issues.

Re: Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

Don't be surprised if the "Little Emperor's" next move is not to petetion the high court for a "writ of certiorari" asking that all the records and documents associated with "The Warpath" be subjected to review. His reason for asking the court to grant such writ is so he can delve deeper into the reasons for so much fan discord, and be able to develop ways and means to further combat it.

Re: Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

Snyder is sounding like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Iran. I guess one thing they can't stop is tweeting.

Re: Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

This media paranoia, fan censorship and handling of Zorn is absolutely pathetic. Gibbs needs to have an intervention with him because it seems that Gibbs is the only person he listens to.

The sad thing is that he truly wants to win and actually thinks that he is making good decisions. He really has some type of disorder.

Re: Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

I can see DS recinding all the tickets, putting up sheet metal human figures in each seat with a button he can press to pop them up when needed and playing crowd noise at each game over the loud speakers. LOL.

Media sees empty seats prior to game, then sent to a holding room while he presses the button, then media is brought back out with the fans in place. Sorry no fan interviews. LOL.

What the hell is going on with the beloved Skins? It seriously feels like the Titanic. Is Ds the boy in the plastic bubble? Honestly if it was me I'd be humiliated. I hold a press conference where I'd fire VC. Fire whoever is in charge of public relations and find someone new. Fire all these piss ant venders and hire one company to do it all. Hire a real security firm to provide security at the games. Hire a GM in the off season and tell him to fire everyone and bring in top talent. Then take my wife to a warm beach. Show back up in Sept. with a smile on my face.

DS, you need to wake up, get your head out of your ass, be a man, and get control of this situation instead of plodding along as if everything was hunky dory. Your losing your fan base. Slowly.

My cheap but has walked into Walmart and Target and have seen some nice Skins gear, thought about it, and put it back on the rack. I used to be a proud Skins fan no matter how bad they were, but I find myself distancing my self more and more. I'm usually a fan who is sitting on my couch watching the game no matter what. Shopping has to work around the Skins schedule. I find myself just not caring anymore. I turn the game on yet do other things and pop in and watch a few plays here and there. I don't know what it will be like when we are like 2-9 or 2-10.

The good news is both the Caps and Wizards won last night. The Wiz looked good.
