Re: Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

I still think this initial report is inaccurate, based on my experience and knowledge of media's rights

might be but they still made a point to make a staement enforcing it, he DOES own fed ex and can do what ever the hell he wants, he is turning it into his little fortress so the big kids can't pick on him, and he can play world of war craft with vinny all day

DUDE this is exactly what I thought when I read the first post of the thread...WEIRD! What made it plain to me is how they're both small (super small maybe?) and come across as blatantly smug.

LOL...

Yeah I mean doesn't the public typically "fund" the building w/ a levy or some kind of the new tax? Not sure about the specifics of FedEx but I've definitely read about other stadiums built on public funds (the ownership is franchise based i.e. the team as an entity is owned but the edifice is more or less a public venue).

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.
They have always pumped in crowd noise over the speaker system. And I agree the wiz look good.

Danny boy is going to do everything he can to keep as much critizicing down to a low. He knows he's on the hot seat with us fans and he can't stand the bad talk he has been getting. You ask for it Danny so take your medicine like a man.

I am in Detroit so I only can make Skins road games in the rust belt, but I am not buying another Skins item until at least they hire a GM and Snyder gets his head out of his ass. Skins fans need to do what Lions fan do and just not show up. THe cost is ridiculous in itself, but to watch crappy football is just another slap in the face. I can go to see my Alma Mater play on Saturdays for as little as $10 and those kids give a better effort than the Skins do. They lose most of the time, but at least they come to play.

That is sad if they really do that. The now next to largest stadium should rock every Sunday, although with things the way they are maybe not. I hope the Caps can get to see Lord Stanley. They were fun to watch last season.

Ask and you shall receive. I have had it pinned to my office wall for a long, long time. There was once a site called FireDanSnyder.com and I bought it from them.

Re: Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

This is just another instance to show how our beloved owner is totally out of touch with his fans. Unfortunately, there's no way we are going to "force" him to sell the team. We can only hope this child grows up soon and realizes he has no business running a football team. He can still own the team without running it. Leave that to the professionals.
Funny thing is, I don't understand what he's hoping to gain by muffling the fans. All he's doing is alienating his customers and making himself a PR nightmare.

or....he could go bankrupt and be forced to sell......maybe someone getting hurt on Fed Ex property or simply everyone start filing suit against him for breach of contract (selling a lemon product. LOL) or something.

Look at the situation this way....if you wanted to see a movie and went to the theater and watched it and thought it sucked afterwards...would you pay the $8 to see it again? Most likely not. Now imagine you've seen all the movies at the theater and want to see something new but your theater keeps showing the same movies...most people would go to another theater and watch another movie. I'm betting no one would pay $8 to see the same damb movies over and over every Sun. for 9 yrs or more. Yet in this situation people are paying thousands of dollars for their season tickets and getting the same show every season, every Sun. for atleast 9 yrs. Not counting the 2 good yrs Gibbs2 had, but I am adding Spurrier. Thousands of dollars.

I understand that sports is different in the sense that it's a coin flip as to the out come of the game vs. a movie which you already know the ending but still if you've seen a crappy show your most likely not going to see it again. and again. and again. etc. etc.

Re: Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

probably would be effective to start writing in to FedEx (as the sponsor) asking them to put pressure on the skins. This idea was mentioned in "Around the Horn" - makes sense

contact | FedEx Global Newsroom

this is what I sent...

Hello,
I am a long time fan of the Washington Redskins and avid FedEx user and I wanted to draw your attention to the iron curtain that is FedEx Field and how this reflects on your company. As you may know, FedEx field has effectively become a censorship “state” that deploys coercive tactics to enforce its "new" rules.[1] At present, fans are prohibited from bring any signs (a common site at sporting events), clothing (critical of the team or owner), and television interviews at tailgates (another common occurrence at sporting events). While I won't waste your time getting into the specifics of each individual assault on our freedom of speech, I do wish to point out how these policies reflect on your company. As a firm that exists to unite the globe (via fast, reliable shipping) this message of intolerance stands in stark contrast to the FedEx vision. In continuing your association with the Redskins and FedEx Field, you are directly supporting the oppression of your clients (and undermining your own revenues). Burke said that “all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing”, to that end, I beseech you act now; withdraw your support of the Redskins’ restrictive policies by canceling your sponsorship of FedEx Field.

Thanks in advance,
XXX XXX
