Ammusement

Something I thought that was a little funny was all the Eagle fans at the game last night. I had four solid rows of Philly jerseys. It is extremely ammusing that people pay for these tix and do not go. I understand that we are not winning but it has always been like this. This city has become a fare weather town and will remain. It is so discomforting to know that I can hear loudly E-A-G-L-E-S Go Eagles. That is something you never saw at RFK and never see at many stadiums around the world. I sure hope this will change, but I honestly really do not see it happening.

Well... Part of it is the price they pay for tickets. It's impossible for young, poor, students such as myself to afford tickets hardly ever. Talked to a guy from around the San Diego area. He pays 45 bucks the day of the game and get's a great seat! I can't blame snyder for getting money, because football is a business. Just like to see a slight change to allow the 12th man to be effective.

I Agree Daseal. 4 Years Ago I Had What I Thought Were Great Seats And I Paid $75 For Them. The Same Tickets Today Are $165. Thats Ridiculous.

I mean also, DC is a place with Gov. and the heavy changes in the job market, we have people from all over..... if we were 11-1 and philly was 4-8 , i think the turnout would be a little different.....

While I agree with most of what you are saying it has NOT always been like this! Back in the day when I use to attend the games in the 80's and early 90's at RFK, the opposing team rarely had a presence. I do believe that it was mainly due to the level of play this franchise had over the 10-15 year period.

Start winning again and the opposing team won't be able to afford the tickets, plain and simple.

jbcr: If we start winning ticket prices are going to go UP? Jesus. I hope we have about 20 more losing seasons so I can become a season ticket holder!

It really is a huge loss for the Redskins. At RFK, the fans were such a critical part of the experience. One of the few things that unified the DC area among people of all backgrounds has been the Redskins - the one thing everyone agreed on. With the tickets making the game inaccessible except for the wealthy, you lose the energy of the diversity of people coming to the game, and this is the result you get.

Tickets are so expensive because they're basically being scalped by season ticket holders. Most tickets are <$100. The upper level tix are ~$60. This is what the original purchaser pays for them (season ticket holder). Some then turn around and triple their money on them.

Your not kidding! This year I paid $600 for 3 lower level tickets for the Monday night Dallas game! When I went to Pittsburgh I paid $215 for 4 tickets. And I just paid $138 for 3 lower level tickets to the Redskins vs. 49ers game.
As you can tell I paid about 3 times more to see the game in D.C. then any where else.And that has been the case for some time now. The Redskins are the highest priced ticket in the league!

Aren't MNF prices higher everywhere though? Especially a rivalry?

No not really. for $80 you can get a midfield 15th row seat at Seahawks Stadium (Qwest Field). If you buy early you can get tickets for cheap. Redskins tickets are always expensive compared to the rest of the league.
