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

I believe the higher ticket price is nothing more than just passing the cost onto the customer for the "upgrades" to the stadium.

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

I have a 65 inch Vizio razor LED smartHDTV with a 32'' vizio soundbar and subwoofer in my mancave. Most wonderful television I have ever owned. I also bought a 60 inch vizio razor LED smartHDTV for my living room at walmart during their blac friday. I got the 65 inch for 1288 dollars, and the 60 inch for 678.

In terms of quality and overall performance, I think the Vizio's and Sony's are probably the top two in my book. The 47 inch Sony LCD in my bedroom has been a wonderful TV for 1 1/2 years. Samsung is a good one, but their are some lemons in the bunch.

So what? Every winning team raises their prices. Snyder is a business man, not our friend. You want to see his latest money project RG3 then be ready to $$$ if you don't others will.

A game at Southern Miss will drain you of some coin, too.

That's the grand total for ONE seasons worth of viewing the Redskins at FedEx. Double that if you want to bring a friend. Now, this doesn't even factor in the costs of gas, food, and other game day related items that would incur a cost.

All that for one season's worth of entertainment. Now add in the fact that if you drop 1500 on a TV, you get to use it everyday, all year round. Not only that, the next season, you won't have to drop 1500 again to view your favorite team. Investment wise, this is a no brainer.
Some people are meat eaters others are vegetarians.:cool-smil Personally, for so many reasons, I like watching the games on TV.

True, he is a business man, but I think he's a business man that takes advantage of his customers. I believe if the Cooke family still owned the team we wouldn't see these outragous prices for parking, food, beer bottled water and so on.

The important question is, have they improved the dream seat experience? Because I heard it was H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E. [/sarcasm] :smashfrea

I think the Skins are in the ballpark of price is charged around the league. I doubt that any other owner would charge significantly lower prices. Your statement sounds much more like A grass is greener philosophy than something that you could actually prove.

Snyder has every right to make his money and from the numbers I've seen he's and the Skins are one of the more "affordable"NFL tickets.People (fans)also have to remember when they ask for improvments or a new stadium that someone has to pay and it won't be the owners.
The new meadowlands sucks if you ask me,yes it has new amenities and a nice field but the seats are smaller and unless you are lower level the veiw sucks.Concourse is 3 times as wide but they cur the number of bathrooms in half and they are smaller,parking sucks .
