The funny thing is, this kind of stuff is only going to make the hating worse.

This isn't as bad as throwing out fans because of t-shirts though. That's the most pathetic thing I've seen from Danny.
This all if the initial report in the post is accurate...which I don't think it is

Re: Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

Are you questioning the tailgate thing or the t-shirt thing. The t-shirt thing is 100% real, I saw it. The tailgate thing, that could be a misinterpretation but given his current actions there is no reason to think he would not do that. After all, if you are going after tailgaters, in the parking lot, for hanging anti-snyder banners then everything else is plausible.

Re: Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

I'm talking specifically about media access to tailgaters

I'd still like to see the pic of the original Fire Him T Shirt from ten years ago.

Redskins dealing clumsily with rampant unrest
Posted by Mike Florio on October 28, 2009 9:19 AM ET
Everyone who follows the NFL knows that the Redskins are struggling (and Joe Namath couldn't care less). After seven games, they've won only two -- one by two points at home against the 0-7 Rams and one by three at home against the 0-7 Bucs.

But with coach Jim Zorn supposedly sticking around for the rest of the year and a crippling schedule awaiting after the bye (Falcons, Broncos, Cowboys, Eagles, Saints, Raiders, Giants, Cowboys, Chargers), there's not much more that can be said about the team.

There's plenty that can be said about the manner in which the team is -- or isn't -- dealing with the criticism that goes with the territory of being terrible.

For starters, the team has implemented a new "no signs" policy, which makes sense since the signs will be increasingly unflattering as the losses pile up.

Now, WUSA-TV (via Dan Steinberg's D.C. Sports Bog) says that the team is prohibiting television interviews of tailgaters.

Said anchor Derek McGinty on Tuesday, "Tonight the Redskins have seemingly escalated things again; they've banned media interviews with tailgating fans on FedEx Field property. They told our sports director Brett Haber that this has always been team policy, but when he pointed out that we and other stations, including their very own broadcast partners, have in fact always talked openly to tailgaters, there was, well let's just say, no further explanation."

The situation got even more tense when Redskins General Counsel Dave Donovan spoke with Mike Wise of the Washington Post on Wise's radio show at 106.7 The Fan in D.C. (SportsRadioInterviews.com has the link to the audio.)

The far better approach, in our view, would be to let the fans vent during the bad times. Heavy-handed tactics will serve only to increase the sense of frustration -- and will ultimately alienate hundreds if not thousands of paying customers.

UPDATE: Redskins blogger Matt Terl has put together a partial transcript of the Wise-Donovan debate. Donovan separately told Terl that fans are permitted to wear T-shirts critical of the team, as long as the shirts contain no profanity. Then again, in the eyes of many Redskins fans, the words "Snyder" and "Cerrato" currently are regarded as profane.
This was from PFT, but I found it interesting about the T-shirts. I hope the guys who (if true) was harrassed gets an apology from the Danmiester or perhaps free beer for the remaining part of the season for his inconvenience.

Re: Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

Oh there's a "no sign" policy now too? Haha. What a joke. Could Snyder get any worse? Communism in the nation's capital. Who would've thought?

Every May and September. They haven't released next year's schedule yet. If you've got any kind of game what-so-ever, you'll find some women there.

Re: Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

Donovan is such a smug prick.

"Pat Hill. She's a 72-year old grandmother.

"And as soon as we found out the facts, we terminated the lawsuit and we dropped the judgment. Nonetheless, your organization runs an editorial the next day"

and secondly, didn't he say he wasn't aware of her story when they first talked to him about it?

yet he's saying they dropped it BEFORE it was reported on?

He does not like to be told that he is wrong about anything. If one of the security folks told him that it just didn't seem right to forbid someone from bringing in a sign that said "Hi Dad! Stay Safe in Afghanistan!" with an American Flag emblem on it, Danny Boy is 50/50 to fire that security guy on the spot. NO one tells him he is wrong about ANYTHING. If you don't believe that, ask any of the 15 PR people that have come and gone through the Skins organization in the last 6 or 7 years. Only a few of them have truly resigned; the rest have "resigned" - - and taken a buyout with a confidentiality clause.


Danny Boy's yes-men are closing ranks around him to protect him from the ego-abuse he is taking and should continue to take. The more he tries to be a hard-ass about this, the more he will be held up to ridicule - - so long as fans keep the heat on.


Too bad FedEX field is in tightly controlled airspace. I know two private pilots who have planes who want to fly banners around the stadium with a message for fans and for "The Incumbent Owner"... Air traffic control makes that almost impossible.
One needs only a glance to see that what you're saying is absolutely correct.
It's the him against the world mentality, the whole world's wrong and he's right.

He is a coward. He won't speak during the season. He has been hiding behind Vinny for years and now he is hiding behind his slimy lawyer.

Why do you think our players have a weak, excuse filled mentality? Because that is the culture that the owner has created.

This makes me sick.

No not at all. Private property like FEDEX Field is a public invite situation. It is viewed by the Courts as more of a public trust. My bet is, if that ban is real, the Washington Post will have reporters out to interview with Attorneys by their side. This is not a private residence or private business. The public is being invited en masse onto the property. Cant enforce it anyway.

Re: Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

pretty sure i was one of the reasons for this action because they interviewed me about the sellourteamdannyboy.com website and it aired on nbc a little after 6 atleast we know this stuff is getting to him, fox 5 was also at my house today and interviewed me and a buddy today in front of my "redskins car" and it should be airing on fox tonight between 6 and 630 and as of now we are $30 away from getting our first thousand on sellourteamdannyboy.com
