So the 'Skins have been quietly trying to unload tickets around the DC metro area, making it appear like the tickets are a once in lifetime deal.
People on the season ticket waitlist (including yours truly) have been receiving calls from the ticket office. Tickets are opening up at a rapid pace.
The team even has deals in place with the DC lottery to win tickets.
With the Washington Post bringing out a series concerning online ticket brokers who resell Redskin tickets, I've become more in tuned to the fact that Danny Boy might be struggling to fill the stadium.
We all know that FedEx doesn't sell out anymore. The premium seating costs a fortune. The team is mediocre. Combine the two and fans aren't going to come out see a game much less a full slate of games.
They are going to resell their tickets to the highest bidder especially in these economically trying times. So fans of other teams won't be hard pressed to find tickets.
Something has to give. Eventually Snyder will need to do something to alleviate an apathetic fan base. Things aren't code red, but how much more will fans put up with?
Of course winning would make everything better, but if the victories don't start piling up fast, fans will continue to leave and watch from the more affordable confines of their living rooms.
Here's the link to the Post's article.
