Re: Season Ticket Renewals

Being he's not a season ticket holder / his name hasn't come up, I'm assuming they're offering him club level. They use to call me periodically to offer them before my name came up on the wait-list.

Probably...they try and sell them to anyone who calls them.

Re: Season Ticket Renewals

Yeah it's crazy. It would match up, he wanted a pair, $3,000 each is probably about right or at least in the general area.

Don't get to excited he was giving the wink and thumbs up to the girl behind you.

Up until a few years ago, the Redskins had some of the highest ticket prices in the NFL, yet were one of the worst teams in the NFL. Now that other teams have new stadiums and expansions, our ticket prices have gone to around middle of the pack. Hell, the only reason he hasn't raised prices is due to the team not winning.

The money I would have to spend to get to DC, stay in a hotel, parking, concessions (or tailgate food) is simply not worth it to me. I personally think the NFL is probably going to price themselves out before it's all said and done. The sad thing is, I'm quite sure many of these fans really can't afford to be paying for tickets but they still do. Hard to ask Congress to be fiscally responsible when our own people can't do it.

Time. To me, that's more valuable than anything. At home (or a bar), I don't have to fight lines for drinks/food/bathrooms. Don't have to wait in lines to get in. Don't worry about having to ignore drunk obnoxious assholes. Don't have to worry about missing a play and able to see reviews on a whim. Trust me, I know all about live game days. I live about 1/2 mile from the stadium here in town and walk to a many of the games here. Love it, but then again, I get special access where I don't have to wait in lines and get free food. :cheeky-sm

Re: Season Ticket Renewals

I go see a couple games a year, but when the team's not winning I see no point in shelling out big money just to watch an average to mediocre team lose. I would never pay 6 grand to get season tickets for the Redskins unless I had plenty of money to blow and the team had the pieces to play good to great football that year. Read; a good starting quarterback.

Re: Season Ticket Renewals

Was lurking on ES and read that the Gray Lot is no more. Does anybody have Gray Lot parking and confirm they were upgraded to either the Green or Green B-3 Lot(s)?

Apparently the Gray Lot is going to become the new staff lot? Not sure why that is. Isn't that yellow lot right by the South Gate Tunnel the current staff/players lot? Not sure why they'd make the staff walk so much further away.

Wouldn't that apply to the camera people as well? Can't see them hauling all that equipment over that way, but I'm just not sure either.

Well, they did take out yet more seats so I can easily see them doing away with a parking lot that isn't really needed.

My guess is any type of "equipment" they are carrying will be dropped off near the stadium. It could apply to the staff working the game. Vendors/security/ticket scanners/etc...

Re: Season Ticket Renewals

Yeah I can understand that aspect, as far as moving the fans into the Green lots, but still the staff part confuses me.

Wouldn't it make more sense to have staff park in the RV Lot, then make the Gray Lot the RV lot? I believe the Gray Lot was one of the largest lots correct?

Probably easier for them to keep the RV lot as is instead of having to redo the Gray parking lot to accommodate RV/Buses. Also, I imagine more space is needed to park staff than to park the RVs/Buses.


Are you the insaneboost that TK and LL keep heckling on Twitter? If you are, those guys give you serious shit.

Re: Season Ticket Renewals

True. Guess I'm just a little puzzled (not that it effects me) because when I go up to my seats (escalator), the staff / players lot never seems to be overcrowded by any means, so I don't see why it's necessary to put them in the gray lot.

My only thought is, is because they want to add a roof / partial roof to the stadium. I've been hearing that rumor for awhile (which I didn't believe at first), but now with more seats gone, it would seem easy to add something at the ends. The players lot, or part of it would be affected if they have to have a beam come down there to hold up the structure.

Who knows though, maybe I'm just a looney looking too deep into things.

Yup, that's me. They love to give me shit, but we're pretty cool behind everything.

1) Is that the same staff parking that houses all those vendors/security/ticket personnel or is it staff like....coaching staff, media staff, and the more staff directly affiliated with the Skins? Not sure, which is why I'm asking. I doubt they'll have the peasants parking with the real Redskins staff...lol

2) That dream of a roof isn't happening. Buildings have to be build with the ability to handle such things, and I seriously doubt that JKC built that stadium with any intention of supporting a roof. Snyder's only hope is to get another stadium build, and I don't see that happening in DC with how people feel about Snyder.

Re: Season Ticket Renewals

I believe that's the lot they all park in because the South Gate Tunnel is where you have to get your media passes / login for work. Then again, that doesn't mean they aren't parking somewhere else either.

As far as the roof, correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't FedExField built so when they closed it, it could be turned into a huge mall / shopping center? Wouldn't that mean a roof could be placed on it? Or would that be after they took some things down? Such as the upper brace that holds the seats, and adding a flat roof that way?

Re: Season Ticket Renewals

I would do it maybe once to see how it was, but to be honest I like to be higher up so you can see the plays develop, etc. It would be cool to give the guys "thatta boy" type stuff in the "dream seats", but I don't think the cost is worth it.
