What I don't know is when you purchase season tickets is your meal included?
If I am not mistaken, those who have been duped into purchasing "Dream Seats" get a meal as a part of the package. The meal is to make up for the fact that dream seats are really just obstructed view, the bulk of them so close to the field that folks who sit there are staring at the backs of the heads of players and coaches on the sideline.

Simple. The Redskins have been able to manipulate the media by limiting access to those who are critical to the team. George Michael used to get all the exclusives from Redskins Park until they deemed him too critical. If you'll notice, now Fox 5 has the most access and actually does their show from the media booth at the park. They are also way less critical of the organization than the other networks.

They probably do the same thing with the networks at games. They ban interviews with the fans by limiting access to other facilities if the networks don't comply.

Ok. You might be right. Perhaps my problem is that my 'dream seats' also have the same distinct view as 'game film'.

Re: Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

As a longtime member of the media, including covering the Redskins locally I think yes the Redskins are very difficult to work with, however, this seems to be a big misunderstanding or lack of proper communication. I always remember certain rules being in place about when you could interview tailgater and where. Also, I've seen similar limitations with other sports and other teams
