There is none. Was wiped out a few years ago. One of the cries over there is how "we use to have a 30,000 waiting list and now they are soliciting for people". It's gone. It's a big reason why they are removing sections and installing "party decks"

From 2009 - The Legendary Redskins Ticket "Waiting List" That Doesn't Exist

But if the line for the exclusive club is so damn long, why is Washington sending direct mail offers of up to eight season tickets each to people who aren't even on the list? You even get a $25 dollar gift card when you send in your deposit. If so many people are so eager to buy them up, why even put on a sales job at all? Does the list even exist or did everyone on it suddenly die of swine flu?

2011 -

Redskins official says team was unable to sell season tickets for seats removed from FedEx Field

They removed 10,000 seats they couldn't sell.

Finally, they can't fill their club levels, so they are literally handing out "relocation passes" for the club level at the gate to people in the nosebleeds.

The problem is Daniel Snyder is not affected by the lack of attendance vs. the Bucs.  Those seats were bought, and paid for in advance.  This is why many of us wondered when Lurie would fire Andy Reid.  The stands may be sparse with fans ('11, and '12), but that is money wasted by many disgruntled fans.  Both Lurie, and Snyder didn't lose any sleep.  

 

On a PR level, the Redskins haven't been this bad since Jim Zorn.

They claim the attendance at the game was 77,442. Yeah, ok.

That looks like the 700 level of the Vet in 1985.  Yet under the new money grabbing rules of the modern PSL NFL; those seats are bought and paid.  Snyder is losing no sleep.

Stumbled onto this while searching for something.

http://www.wusa9.com/story/sports/2014/11/13/die-hard-redskins-fan-john-ray-bartgis-puts-final-wish-in-obituary/18973673/

 

MECHANICSVILLE, Va. (WUSA9) -- A Washington Redskins fan who passed away Monday was able to make one last dig at the team.

John Ray Bartgis died on Monday, November 10 at age 52 after battling lung cancer. In his obituary, he asked the Redskins to grant one of his "final wishes."

"John was also a diehard Washington Redskins fan, and one of his final wishes was that the team members would be his pallbearers so they can let him down one last time," the obituary reads.

Bartgis was a staff sergeant in the National Guard for 12 years who loved motor sports going each year to the Hatfield McCoy Trails with his work buddies.

The service will be held Thursday at 2 p.m. in Mechanicsville.

I just saw this on ES that highlights just how bad their offense is: The r-words are 1-40 converting 3rd and 9 or longer.

Compare it to Grudens' 3 years with the Bengals

2011 - 9 of 59 (15.25%)

2012 - 11 of 45 (24.44%)

2013 - 17 of 61 (27.86%)

And the Bengals this year without Gruden: 6 of 39 (15.38%)
