Not sure how much good it will do but I feel compelled to write the organization about this. I wonder if they approached his family about this?

The Redskins have done and continue to do so much for Taylor's family. It will be a shame if that's all forgotten because of this

Re: Redskins Blog: Sean Taylor's Locker To Be Moved To FedExField (Club level)

while i somewhat understand putting it on the club level to reduce traffic i think it should remain where it belongs in the locker room. if the want a tribute to sean at fedex they should create a new one there, with game woirn jerseys, and other gear, photos and quotes from fans broadcasters and fellow players. i really don't think this is an attemp to drum up money by placing it on the club level, but i do think moving the locker is a bit much.

and i don't think anyone will forget what the redskins have done and continue to do for his family, that is one thing snyder has handeled very well over the past few years imo, i'm just not a fan of this move

I think that, even thought they won't publicly say it, the players were ready for the locker to be moved out of the locker room. After a while, it's just too much to handle to see that everyday I'm sure.

I'm not at all denying what the Skins have done for the Taylor's. I'm just saying that the majority of the fans wont have full access to the locker without paying to see it.
So what you're basically saying is they are charging extra because they're making people upgrade their tickets just for the chance to see Taylor's locker?

True. Plus we are trying to instill an "it's a new era" locker room culture.

Re: Redskins Blog: Sean Taylor's Locker To Be Moved To FedExField (Club level)

Ok, well we're just not going to agree at all on this then. Club level priviliges isn't something that Snyder invented. It's common throughout the NFL, throughout all sports in fact. People that pay for those level of seats are going to get more amenities. It's like flying First Class.

But it's not like they're parading his locker around on a world tour and saying "Come see Sean Taylor's locker for only $25!"

Anyway, let's just agree to disagree here.

Owner’s Club - East and West
The Owner’s Club is an area located on the second floor of the Sprint Gate (Gate A) side of the building. It is an enclosed area which includes luxury suites and furnished lounges.

"Now the locker is being moved in its entirety to the Club A Tower at FedExField to be shared with Redskins fans."

Elevators are located at the Sprint Gate (Gate A) and the Bank of America Gate (Gate E) for the convenience of Loge, Suite, Owner’s Club

The Club Level escalators, located at Section 101 and Section 122, are available to Guests with a Club, Field Club, Loge, Suite or Owner’s Club ticket. An escalator which accesses the Upper Level only is located between the Sprint Gate (Gate A) and Gate B at Section 106 for the convenience of our Upper Level Guests and can be accessed either via the concourse or the turnstiles at Gate A.

The Lower Level consists of Sections 101-142 and Sections 201-242 and is a general seating area. Sections numbered in the 100’s and 200’s can be accessed directly from the Main Concourse.

You think what you want... DSnyder is a PR expert. He handled the Taylors the way the fans and the players demanded. I don't doubt the players want the locker out of the locker room. I would too. Its not the way to move on.

But DS is a business man. Club level priveledges include: great veiw of game, suites, martini bar, Blody Mary Bar, Cigar bar, lots of comps, Pre-game shows, NFL highlights and early or late games on one of many flat screen TVs. Internet Cafes,

Guests with a ticket for the Club Level, Field Club, Loge, Suites, or Owner’s Club may enjoy the Club Level amenities at any time during the event. And now the addition of... Taylor's locker. End of story!
It's the attitude expressed in this post that I will never ever quite understand.

I guess it wouldn't be the Redskins if there wasn't something to bitch about in regard to Snyder.

Re: Redskins Blog: Sean Taylor's Locker To Be Moved To FedExField (Club level)

I have tickets but they are not club level seats so i won't get to see the locker but I still think this is fine. I don't believe the Redskins are trying to use this to get more people to sign up for club seats i just think that level made the most sense for where to place it. The club level is completely closed in I believe which will keep it from the weather. The ground level GA area is very dirty and crowded on game days and does not make a very ideal place to preserve and display this locker. The only other place in the general admission areas I can think of to display it would be in the Redskins store but then the same people would be complaining that they put it there to drum up business.

Skins are in a no-win here to a degree. If they placed it on the ground level some would have seen that as disrespectful I'm sure.

I think if you put in on the ground level it could create a log jam with folks sopping to see it, just look at the escalators ten minutes before kick off. It is horrible! Plus the club level is a much nicer area to display something like that and less likely to be vandalized.

No doubt.. and what Smoot said about some players probably ready for the move, that's probably true. I think it was Moss that says he always stands there and looks at it, I mean that can kind of bring you down, you don't want to think of the death of a best friend right before a game.

The only place other than club level that I could see them putting it appropriately would've been in the HOF store.
