Flag Football Update

On behalf of the front office, I'd like to give you all an update on what's going on with our plans to have a Warpath flag football game.

We've been working pretty hard behind the scenes to get this going. Crisp is working on a registration system in which people will pay to be a part of the team-Crisp can provide further details. Brud is working on landing us some sponsors for a possible postgame banquet. And CrazyCanuck has done some creative cap manuevers to allow us to keep RedskinRat and sign Redskins_P to a long term extension.

Also, we will be raising money for the Good Samaritan Foundation. A local organization that provides opportunities for inner-city youth in the DC area. I spoke to them and they are very interested in what we're doing. Also, I've gotten Charles Mann and Art Monk to tentatively agree to be honorary coaches-but keep that between the 1,000+ of us-in exchange for helping to raise money for their charity, the Good Samaritan Foundation.

Anyway, with all this going on we're looking at pushing the date to either Sept. 24 or 25-during the Skins bye week. And we need you guys to help us out now, any contacts you have in terms of getting sponsors, finding a place to play, host the postgame dinner etc.

I think we can make this really big. Crisp anything you'd like to add here?

That's bad ass TAFKAS. I was just wondering today about if that was really going to happen... You don't think we could play at FedEx?

TAFKAS, just to update you. I fired my old agent and hired Drew Rosenhaus. I'm trying to get paid.......I got kids to feed.

Re: Flag Football Update

Would love to play but have a family function in PA that weekend. My cousin books this function and then finds out about the bye week. How lucky is that.

TAFKAS would please confirm that a Redskin_P for SportsCurmudgeon trade is NOT in the offing.

Although disgruntled by this latest selfish move by Redskin_P, his presence really is the glue that holds the Warpath team together. I mean, just look how far we got last year when he wasn't playing!!! How many games did we win? Nado, zip, zero.

Yes - He's a big mouth and selfish but lets work this out. Try to get past his comment that you are just a "company man".

But seriously - Excellent news guys! Count me Thanks for working so hard on it.

The way I see it we went undefeated last year when he wasn't playing! LOL. Really it's out of my hands. It's up to Judge Ramseyfan now to determine if Redskins_P is indeed guilty of brandishing a SuperSoaker after Daseal and CPayne allegedly stole his Big Wheels tricycle.

We've excused Redskins_P from all practices while he gets this matter resolved

Sure, undefeated until we get to the playoffs. Then how many games did we win??

Well, with any luck the the trial will be postponed after the bye week. Besides, if the only evidence against him is the word of Daseal and CPayne, the case isn't built on the strongest of evidence... I mean really, Daseal's credibility? I have one word for you - Spurrier. And all we have to do to undermine CPayne is give him the old Chad Morton Avatar and wait for him to go ballistic (or was that CRT??).

LOL...of course, we can't forget your "courageous" performance last season. You were so brave out there

Re: Flag Football Update

At this point, I'm looking at eBay Giving Works's "Mission Fish" service as an online auctioneering tool that will allow us to auction off the roster spots. Obviously, in order for this thing to come to life, we need to be able to guarantee a certain amount of charitable income for The Good Samaritan Foundation, so I'm planning on setting minimum bids for the roster spots that will ensure this event is worth the organization's time.

We're still working on what the roster sizes should be, and from that we'll be able to determine how much the minimum bids should be for each roster spot.

We also need your help in locating a sponsor(s) who would be able to cover the costs of team jerseys-- probably the largest expense we're going to encounter in organizing this thing.

Sponsors will also be needed for gameday provisions such as flag-belts for the players, sports beverages, team and MVP trophies, etc. If you or anyone you know can help provide these items, please let me know. Just post your message on this thread.

The details of organizing the actual teams are still somewhat nebulous, but we'd like to get each of the major unofficial Redskins fan websites involved (at least us, Extremeskins, TheHogs.net, hailRedskins.com). In terms of numbers, what we're basically looking at is teams of around 20 players. That roster size would provide a full offense, defense and 4-man bench for an 8-on-8 game format.

Given the fact that everyone's from different geographic areas, it will be tough to organize practices, so what we were thinking about doing is having a designated practice period the morning of the tournament, for about 2 hours-- say 10am to 12pm. That would give players time to get to the practice location, and then teammates would be able to meet each other, run some plays, figure out their gameplans, etc. Then everyone would break for lunch, and would return for the actual tournament. It would be great if we could arrange some sort of sponsored lunch, with some kind of informational program on The Good Samaritan Foundation, so everyone could learn a little something about the organization we're supporting. That would give players time to digest their food before heading back out to the field.

The team matchups would be determined by random drawing, and each game would last approximately 40 minutes (10 min. quarters with a running clock). There would need to be a short halftime as well, so that would bump up the total game time to around 45-50 minutes.

Assuming there are 4 teams, we'd have only one qualifying round for the championship game. The championship game would be held a little later in the day, with an awards banquet and dinner following the game. The tournament champion and offensive and defensive MVPs for each team would be presented with their trophies at the banquet. We're tentatively planning on having the honorary coaches-- Art Monk and Charles Mann-- select the MVPs, and present them with their awards.

That's all the details I have for now. Please post here and let me know if you have any ideas or potential sponsors that could help get this thing off the ground.
