Re: London Fletcher - "Fans, be louder"

There are 3 reasons that FedEx is not that loud:
1. The amount of opposing fans (there were a ton of Vikings fans in my section). I was in the mens room when I heard cheering, I knew the vikes were close to scoring. I thought we had intercepted again, but the vikings TE scored. The cheering was so loud I thought it was for the skins.
2. The club level is never sold out, most of the attendees are corporate types that are not going to cheer.
3. The open roof and design doesnt create the acoustic bounce back that stadiums like RFK used to.

Yup....it's insanely loud and those fans never ever sit down. Super dome is pretty damn loud too, especially when they chant "Who dat? Who dat? Who dat say dey gonna beat dem Saints?"

Going to these stadiums is an experience.

If we keep winning the opposing fans will start to have trouble buying tickets.

Fletcher needs to worry more about getting beat on jump balls.

Thats the two most pressing issues. When I see film of old RFK rocking it looks full of hard core middle class die hards. Die hards have a hard time explaining spending so much geetus going to a game with economic struggles at home. It showed an endzone shot from behind the offense yesterday during an important Vikings drive in the 4th quarter you could see the stands behind the defense everyone was sitting there like they were in church. Jerry world has it worse by far full of cocaine and boob job types that dont have a clue about fb they treat going to a game like a vacation experience.

Re: London Fletcher - "Fans, be louder"

Probably another reason why fans no longer want to attend games.

Re: London Fletcher - "Fans, be louder"

No offense to the people commenting here, but there is no science to the lack of home field advantage. The Redskins have been most of the time a subpar team in the past decade, so fans are not willing to put up all that money to go games.

Now that we have a superstar in the making and hopefully a winning team things are going to change.

That's the key. The NFL has out priced the very people and fans that made the game great. Games like the Super Bowl are now full of corporate sponsors or people who mortgage a small loan just to go. Throw in the fact they make you pay full price for 2 preseason games and add in parking and it's not really financially smart(or emotionally rewarding) to invest in season tickets.

Re: London Fletcher - "Fans, be louder"

I hear what your saying Ruhskins, everyone loves a winner. Hope we can string together a few 12+ win seasons together and see what the turnout looks like.

I thought we had intercepted, also. Another problem is our fans dont all know when to cheer. I just got upgraded to section 130 row 2. Those fans flip out as soon as you stand up. Honestly, I want to stand up the whole time the defense is on the field and yell. Half the time those fans are yelling when the offense is on the field. And yes there were allot of Vicking fans. But that was the first game I saw allot of oppsing fans. The thing that will make FEDEX LOUD IS WINNING CONSISTANTLY, WINNING!!!!

Re: London Fletcher - "Fans, be louder"

I was there yesterday as I am most home games and it was very loud yesterday. FedEx will get louder and louder as the product on the field gets better. Can't just blame the fans and the stadium...fans need something to cheer about. RFK would not have been as loud if the Redskins lost every week there.

I agree completely on the cheering at the wrong times. people should be sitting quiet while the skins are on offense and standing yelling while on defense. We got these RG3 chants going on while we are trying to call a play at the line of scrimmage. Rediculous. Soon as the team gets back in the huddle those RG3 chants need to stop.

I totally agree, and I believe that the curved roof on RFK reflected noise, making it that much louder.

Re: London Fletcher - "Fans, be louder"

A curved roof does help. However, winning consistently helps even more.
