Our fans suck - 2nd post in as many years

Postby chiefhog44 » Tue Nov 04, 2008 12:01 am

I posted this last year when I attended the Bears game, and I'll say it again. How do the F-ing Steelers have more fans at the game then we do, and if they didn't, how are they louder?????

Our fans are pathetic. Why does anyone sell the visiting team tickets? Come on guys. Eat the cost if you can't go. Hell I'll buy them and eat it while watching in Chicago.

I'm again ashamed of being a fan. I knew the feeling of being proud of our fan base wouldn't last for a whole season. Not with this crew.

Very little noise that whole game. Just flat out embarassing seeing all those towels.
Miss you 21

Oh, it might be the traffic to the airport. Maybe the hotel I have to book the night of, or maybe just because I live in Chicago I can't make every game of the year. If I could I would, trust me. People like yourself living in the area have ZERO excuses.

Totally, and the fact that they mention it all game is even more embarassing. Can't we fill a 90,000 seat stadium while being 6-2??? Can't stand the fact that Jaws was sitting there saying "if this game was in Philly, there wouldn't be one towel waving." Man am I pissed

i agree chiefhog44.. our fans are worthless.. we need them to help create offsides and turn overs.. i've always felt the Skins fan base was somewhat frail...

I'm not the one crying about, "I'd buy tickets to keep visitors out." Me being a staff member to a forum has nothing to do with attending Redskins games or any other Redskins related events. I've been to a few games in my time. Thanks for caring!

Don't think geographical location was a criteria. Obviously the Pittsburgh fans didn't mind the commute.

You're right. Shouldn't of even wasted my time with your post. It wasn't even on topic. Just here to say that our fans suck. That's it, end of story, so if you want to make this thread into how many tickets I've bought, go ahead

Steelers fans travel well. They also left Pittsburgh in droves during the 80s and 90s as the city declined, and the D.C. area has seen almost nothing but growth for decades. We pick up a lot of people that a town like (e.g.) Denver won't.

Add on top of that the cool, disconnected corporate atmosphere that Snyder has fostered for a decade. Add to that the fact that Washington fans just haven't been very good fans at the stadium in the last 10 years.

I hate to say it, but nothing about tonight's crowd surprised me. At least they weren't booing, as far as I could tell. :|

J. Campbell seemed suprised at the amount of Squeelers fans in attendance as well. He just mentioned it at the press conf. just now.
