Also i dont think a big stadium works in DC. Is the melting pot of the country, there are so many people that live there that are from other areas and route for other teams. Anything that can be done to keep seats in Fedex filled with Redskins fans needs to be considered even if it means reducing the size.
Eh, dunno. Maybe you're right, but DC has always been a transient city. But when the Skins won, the stadium was always packed with Redskins fans!

I have seen a few studies that show DC is no more transient than any other big city it just seems that way because the Govt changes every few years.

Re: FedEx to Install Party Decks; Remove Seats

My friend has season tix in 412 but last season they moved him from row 20 to row 6 so he'll probably be unaffected by this. I've been to Fedex 8 times in the last 7 years and 7 out of those 8 times I sat in the affected areas. I don't think I'm gonna miss those areas much tbh. As far as the game day experience goes it won't be affected too much.

The party decks in Charlotte are inside and they are horrible. Basically you pay to stand around inside and watch the game on tvs. The one in Tampa is awesome though (on the ship).

Re: FedEx to Install Party Decks; Remove Seats

I think my seats are affected. I'm in Section 414 row 8 but I don't know if the deck is going to replace the entire section or not.

Believe it or not, I like my section - I always said that if I eventually move down to row 1 I would stay there. I like being head on with the screens and being the first to know whether a FG is good or not. And when the scoring is on that side it is a great view.

If my seats are still there I just hope nobody pukes on me from the party deck!

The "New Meadowlands" is the same way(hate the place),they are inside and basicly is a bar with TV"s ,thing about Tampa is they were planned that way, were as Fed Ex wasn't .....this is a bad idea,more drunks instead of a better football experence.

And its amazing how many people born in the DC area arent Skins fans. That doesnt happen in places like Pittsburgh, GB or Chicago.

According to that picture it looks like my seats may still be there but it is too close to call!

Re: FedEx to Install Party Decks; Remove Seats

The company that i work for is actually contracted to haul out the concrete risers that the seats used to set on. pretty cool.

I asked some of the drivers this morning before they left if they could take some pictures of the stadium for me!

Re: FedEx to Install Party Decks; Remove Seats

Don't get things twisted. This isn't about fan patronage or appealling to the public. When a franchise hosts a home football game the overall revenue generated from the stadium seating is split 60-40 between the home team and the away team. However the money accrued from things like box seating, suites and party decks are siphoned directly into the pocket of the stadium owner. It's Dan disregarding the fans and trying to make another quick buck.

That's one way to look at I suppose...perhaps not the right way though

No supposition needed because I just looked at it that way. But maybe you can tell me the right way to perceive it so I can pander to your sensibilities.
