We Need the 12th man TONIGHT!!!!

Postby SkinFan 0-16 or 16-0 » Fri Aug 26, 2005 1:43 pm

I know it's only a pre-season game but I think we need a win in the worse way tonight.

Most of these "experts" who are saying that we are going 6-10 again (probably only watch the nationally televised games)

I've been hearing some of these same "experts" naming the best fan bases in the league, and we are not even mentioned.

That's just unacceptable. We need to show everybody what we already know. WE ARE THE BEST FANBASE IN THE NFL!!!!

Think of one thing. One impressive win tonight over the team with the leagues best record tonight, and they'll have to shut up.

So If you will be in FED EX tonight (which unfortuanatley I won't be able to attend) stand up, get loud, and cheer on the best Franchise in the business. (I know I will be from North VA)

And espescially when our D is on the field. We need to show the world who really has the best Defense in the NFL.

NOTE TO SKINS FANS AT FEDEX:

DO NOT DO THE WAVE WHILE OUR OFFENSE IS ON THE FIELD!!!!!

DO IT ONLY WHILE WE ARE ON DEFENSE. THE WAVE IS MEANT TO CONFUSE/DISTRACT THE OPPOSING TEAM'S OFFENSE.

PASS IT ON.


Thank you.

You can attribute the apperance that our fans are not as loud or that we are not into the games, to Danny. When I used to go to RFK there was no place on earth like it, the stadium got so loud you could not even hear the person sitting next to you. Other teams hated to play at RFK because they could not run their offense it was so loud. I remember looking across the field and it looked like the lower level was moving like a wave.

Now when I go to Fedex Field there are too many other things going on at the stadium besides a football game. You do not even have to be in your seat in order to see what is happening on field. There are TVs in the multiable bars, TVs in restaurants, TVs in the concession areas. In the middle level half the people are inside. We may have 85 thousand peolple at the game but it appears to me that only 65% seem to be involved in the game. Save the bars & restaurants for after the game, the team needs the 85K fans to be loud and involved in the game.

I'm always going to cheer the team on. With a little bit of heckling on the side. :)

I did not boo after the first drive last week. That was stupid. And so were the "We want Campbell" chants.

It just shows how selfish the fans have become. Let the coaches and players do their job.

Jake you have to cheer loud enough to cover us. I'm not feeling well so JF and JF Jr. are having to stay here to take care of me! You better be extra loud, because I make a lot of noise at the games. And Terri, if Jake participates in the wave please whack him in the back of the head and tell him it's from me! ;-)

This post right here hit the nail right on the head 100%!!!! On another note that was a big preseason game because it #1 gave us the confidence we needed, #2 was a nationally televised game and #3 sent the pittsburgh fans home with chapped a**es. What is the best way to stop all of the other fans from coming into our stadium??? DOMINTING THEM LIKE WE DID TONIGHT!
HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!!!

That really happened? Man that's just sad.

I mean, after 9 long weeks with Boonell, I can understand the Ramsey chants. But after 1 drive! In the Pre-Season!

That's like at the Angel games. Ever since they won the World Series, all these "Fans" have been comming to "cheer" on the team. Basically, the new "fans" are stupid rich fools who boo everytime a pitcher walks a batter!

I just wish I could be at FedEx soooo bad. Man, I would cheer untill I barffed.

Actually, it's kind of funny because today when Moss caught that pass and started dancing all over the field, I was literally running around the living room as fast I could.

Man, I love Redskin games :)

Good deal Terri. I'm sorry Scott and I missed a game like that. Let's hope this was a change in tide for the fans. I saw way too many Steelers fans during that first touchdown they scored, oh wait during the ONLY touchdown they scored. lol

Just to clear it up some. They chanted the "We Want Cambell" last week during the fourth quarter. They weren't doing it because they thought Ramsey or Brunell were doing a bad job. They were doing it because they wanted to see how their new quarterback would perform.

Don't get me wrong. I think it was pretty stupid. It just sounded like you thought people were chanting that early in the game. And I just wanted to clear that up.
