Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

On WUSA-9's 11 pm Tuesday night broadcast, anchor Derek McGinty dropped this bomb:

"Tonight the Redskins have seemingly escalated things again; they've banned media interviews with tailgating fans on FedEx Field property," McGinty said. "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."

Has Snyder gone off the deep end? He is acting like a megalomaniac!

Yep, can't remember if that was covered in the "free speech" thread or just in one of the links/stories that I've followed.

How pathetic.

Re: Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

I thought this thread was going to have a punch line. Wow, just wow. Is Dan Snyder going to show up to the next game wearing epaulettes and adorned with military medallions? Can someone give me a reason not to completely give up on this organization?

Bad move by the organization. Can't believe this.

Lotus, awesome line.

Re: Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

I don't know why people keep going...seriously tell people not to go to games and don't go to games yourselves. Dan Snyder is a piece of s***

The best response is to stop going to the games period

I've been saying that along as well. Snyder probably has already made his profits for this year from the ticket sales, but he can still get sucker punched by people not showing up, parking in his parking lots, buying his food and drinks, etc...

Go ahead if you desire.

We need amusement in these dark times. I'm glad you are amused.

Re: Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

I'm glade they finnally decided to enforce this policy. I go to the game to relax and its hard when you have reporter after reporter sticking their mic. in your face for an interview. All I want is to relax have a few beers, some good food and to watch the game. How can I do that when asked to do 3 or 4 interviews?

Kinda reminiscent of the old Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, and modern day China.

Re: Redskins Ban Interviews with Tailgaters.

Seriously though. Were there reporters trying to interview fans before this year ? Did you really see a media presence amongst the tailgaiters ? That is a serious question because I don't get to go to many games. I don't remember seeing anyone reporting live from the Green Lot,.....EVER. Except when that DTC thing was going on. Besides that when do you remember anyone coming out there to interview a fan? You guys that go can help me with this.
