Ouch. That would be tough asking the fans to pay a increase on ticket prices after having the kind of seasons they had the past 2 years. I guess they are going to capitalize on Chip Kelly hiring with the fanbase being excited about the change? I want to say that Danny last raised prices when he hired Spurrier and then with Gibbs.

I doubt the Skins ticket prices are the only things going up this year.

I hope the increase in prices pays for the best new field money can buy. Also an upgrade in player facilities. My highschool had a better locker room than Fed Ex. Take care of your employees Danny boy

Re: Redskins increase the price of tickets, parking at FedEx Field

I could care less. Go enjoy yourself, but the Skins games have always been more of a hassle than a fun experience. Not really about the price, all football games are expensive. If you dont like it, dont go. Im more worried about the increases in my health care, the cost to heat my house and gas prices. You would think people would be up in arms about that.

Re: Redskins increase the price of tickets, parking at FedEx Field

I live in KY, NFL Sunday Ticket is the cost for my Redskins experience. Around $300 a year, the seats are comfortable, I get all the replays, the beer is $1 a piece and my bathroom is clean with no line. I also don't worry about the travel time to and from.

If you don't the high prices, 60 inch TVs are coming down in price all the time.

Re: Redskins increase the price of tickets, parking at FedEx Field

I know it sucks, but they have not raised ticket prices in 7 years. We were the highest ticket in town, now we are 11th.

The tickets were so above their real value (in terms of product) that it's taken 6 years just to catch up to what they should be more inline with, and really deserve to be much lower on the list. Hell, I still think they are too expensive considering they do no have a new stadium. This is Danny Snyder at his best. Squeezing the fans dry. It's simply why I will never become a STH, nor will I go to many games. It simply isn't worth it. I'd say the same thing if they were perennial winners every year.

The hilarious part of it all was him comparing his team to 3 others in the same division. That's it? So you are coming in 2nd in a race of 4 people and you are bragging about it? All the while you should be including the rest of the NFL to truly reflect how much Skins fans have been gouged over the years.



They removed seats in the upper level because they really couldn't sell them, nor was the demand there to keep them.
I don't think thats true do you have a link.
I looked for and you are wrong.

if danny boy wants to raise prices he better figure out a better way to get fans thru the gates in a timely manner, upgrade the turf, and update the pathetic excuse for a bathroom. and thats a minimum.
What do you want him to do? Wall paper, add a pretty mirror, have candles burning.

Re: Redskins increase the price of tickets, parking at FedEx Field

I was discussing NFL ticket prices on another board with a guy who claimed that the NFL franchises were losing money because they were not able to sale out their stadiums. His solution was to down size every NFL stadium and raise the prices on the tickets. I felt that each franchise needed to offer something more for the "NFL experience" that fans supposedly have when they go to the games. It sounds like maybe what he suggested is what's starting to happen.

Think about it. Most of us have big screen, high definition TVs, so our NFL experience is pretty good in the comforts of our own homes. We have the best seat in the house, or we can stand and cheer, we don't have to pay huge prices for food and drink......almost no reason to go to games in person! So, maybe the ticket prices are the start of trying to recoup whatever lost value may have accrued in recent years - but I think that's just the start of it. I think there needs to be something so unique offered when you go to the games, that it would make the price worth it....other than watching your favorite team win of course.

I used to think this way. but there is an electricity that you feel being there that you can't get at home. When you get used to being there for the tailgate and in the stadium for the game it becomes like a drug. There is just something missing when i watch a home game on my couch. I feel disconected...

These ticket increases are a kick in the arse but I guess if i don't like it i don't have to pay it. I am more worried about the 2% extra that came out of my paycheck this month then I am Redskins ticket prices though...

it took that dick one year of success. in the article you'll note how they compare us to the giants and cowboys ticket prices, almost as if the redskins are justifying it by saying two other teams in our division still have higer prices. you know what else those two teams have a new figgin stadium, not an old dump thats been recently stripped down to the bones.

as a season ticket holder for 9 years now and a skins fan for 30 years, i would just like to say f you danny, f you.
No one if forcing you to go. No one if forcing you to give "that dick" your money. With HD and surround sound I have no idea why anyone would go over there and pay those ridiculous prices.

Sorry, I should have stated they were some of the highest priced tickets in the NFL, not THE highest priced. Either way, they were way above the value that reflected the quality of product.

Do you know if the $40 parking pass is the minium "guests" will be charged? That seems like more than a 10% increase.
Snyder can't help where the stadium is. That's on Jack Kent Cooke. After the deal with Potomac Yard went to shit, he had no choice but to go over to 'Raljon"...lol.

I hope one day they get the stadium back into the city. If they could tear down RFK and rebuild a 75,0000 seat stadium that was be so awesome.
