Yeah, I didn't mind the first time or even the first time from the new guy, but when the guy who came up again telling us that we needed to move, only to say the same thing he did last time kinda irritated me.

I understand they are most likely watching him on camera so he has to come up and say something, but all he has to say is hey, just make sure your tent is down an hour before kickoff. Not, you know better, trying to give us a lecture, then to say again it was okay what we were doing.
Better yet all he has to say is "hey nice set up, hope you have a nice day."

This way it looks like he stopped and said something to them on camera, but was not a jackass every week. Plus it sounds like they really don't know what the rule is if different people are telling you different things, then act confused when you call them on it.

Yeah exactly. About the whole email thing, who should I email? Wouldn't know where to even get the email address.

I believe they have 21000 parking spaces last I heard (probably more now). For 93,000+ people.

At the texans game they made us pack up and move like five spaces away (but we were not closer or further from the stadium) and then new people came and set up right where we were at and they didnt do anything. Kinda stupid if you ask me.

Sorry, just figured that possibly if it was an outside security company then e-mail the company itself. However there has to be someone who is responsible for them while on the property.

In other words someone at Redskins park must be in control of hiring security and giving them set guidelines as to what is ok and what is not. If nothing else e-mail the Redskins but address it to our buddy Mr. Snyder. See if you get a response. It is his property so he can make up the rules or change them. He can always go to whoever is in charge of the security and tell them to chill out.

One would also think that if Snyder gets enough e-mails about the same issue then he would address it. Heck maybe you'll get lucky and he'll show up to see what the issue is and sign some autographs. lol. JK.

Re: Anyone Getting Hassled with Tailgating?

IB - If you guys are one of the first there, and you know there are places in the front/back that people don't have the elaborate set up you guys have, then I wouldn't feel bad taking space where you won't be harassed. And while I'm for traditions, it is a first-come/first-serve lot.

I actually parked in that lot this past Sunday as "overflow" since the green lots nearest Arena Drive were very slow to park on Sunday. I guess since most people come in 202/Brightseat and Arena Drive, the lot you park in is very slow to fill. While it sucks that you are being harassed, you can certainly be pro-active in making sure you park in a different spot as to not be harassed.

Re: Anyone Getting Hassled with Tailgating?

We aren't the first ones there. The picture shown was from the Dallas game where we did get there really early, but a lot of people hadn't shown up then, either because they were waiting for the rain to clear or because they didn't want to get there that early.

We usually get there around 10-10:30 for 1pm games and by that time the front rows and back rows are filled, except for the ones closer to the fence, but like I said we don't want to park there because a) you'll be trapped in and b) the Excursion is huge, it's hard to get around people in it, especially with everyone walking and still tailgating.

Re: Anyone Getting Hassled with Tailgating?

There were a fair amount, I wouldn't put it on level with the Pittsburgh game, but more than I would have liked.

They started up their little GO PACK GO!!!! chant too, till our whole section started booing them and then over ran them with LETS GO REDSKINS chants.

I heard behind their sideline in the lower level there was noticable gold and green, but I don't sit down there so I can't confirm.

Re: Anyone Getting Hassled with Tailgating?

We use to tailgate all the time there, can't remember which lot...orange or purple...anyway we never had any problem. We pulled out grills, had our chef (my cousine, no i didn't pay for chef) grilling, chairs, tents what ever we wanted. The staff where we parked was actually really freaking cool. They would tell trucks that came down to either move over, or find a different route. I never had one bad experience there.

That's where I was in Section 119 and there were plenty of Packers fans in front, to the sides and behind me. Everytime they started Go Pack Go, my buddy and I would chant Go Back Home. They were pretty noisy for the first 3 quarters, then pretty much taken out by the Skins comeback. Once Rodgers threw the pick in OT, a good many of them headed for the gates.

And this is the bottomline in FedEx. If the Redskins don't want the opposing teams fans getting too loud, play a competitive game.

Re: Anyone Getting Hassled with Tailgating?

That, but at the same time I think our fans need to stop being, well, pussies and letting them chant all they want, they need to boo over them or get louder with a Redskins chant.

It's like they all sit there astonished and upset that they are doing these chants, but don't want to do something about it. I always either boo or start a chant up to override them, just a lot of our own fans sit there and wont join in.

Obviously if we are getting blown out that's another story, but still being in a game and allowing opposing fans to do that, really upsets me.
