Fan Appreciation Day: Priceless

Archive of our daily coverage of the Washington Redskins' 2003-2007 Training Camps.

Can you see even a sliver of the silver lining in the 2006 F.A.D. experience?

Absolutely. I am optimist.

No way. Dan Snyder is the Devil, and he uses his pitchfork to get to our wallets.

This wasn't just the typical $4 soda. THis was taking advantage more then just the normal gouging. And just because everyone else does it doesn't make it right. Didn't your mom ever say "If he jumped off of a bridge, would you too??"

Danny brought Gibbs back.

Gibbs brought the Redskins back.

The Redskins brought the playoffs back.

I got to go to a playoff game for the first time in 6 years.


Hence, I love Danny.

Fan Appreciation Day - A misnomer at $25

Fan Appreciation Day - Should be Free :lol:

If the Sponsors and profits from the concessions did not cover the operating cost, I would eat the additional expenses. Peanuts compared to net income for the Redskin Operation.

Lucky to pay $25 for parking.
Lucky to pay $5 for water.
Lucky to have Ravens fans have a special section in our own stadium.

Fan Appreciation Day

The fans should be appreciated on this one day and it didnt happened. If you were happy to spend $30 plus dollars for some autographs, more power to you.

I went to training camp and got them for free. :lol: :lol:

Oh and just as a side note. Daniel Snyder raised the price of water for good. At the game , it was again 5 bucks for one bottle.

But, it's THE OFFICIAL water of the Washington Redskins!! :up:

You can't boast that when you buy the stuff at COSTCO. It's...um...not..the same? :hmm:
Back and better than ever!

I believe they had different sized waters. I believe Ms. Terri, Trips and I only payed $3 a pop. You and JF had the fancy bottles. :D

I only saw one price for water at the preseason game $5.00. You could sign up at guest services and get an wrist band for a free bottle of water.

I really dont understand wut the problem, do u really think everything wus suppose to b free. I m not from the area, but go to plenty of preseason games in all sports and regular season games too. Spendin that much for water 4 to 5 bucks is tha norm. Spendin 15 to 20 dollars to park depenin on area is norm. Not all people get to go to Fedex Field, hell a whole car load for 25 bucks ( to park) is not expensive. For a family of redskins fans who dont get to go to the place where the Redskins play is awesome. Fan App, Ill felt apprectiated go to meet Skin chherleaders, free posters, free redskins hats, people all around me were winnin stuff, fans who dressed up got to go on to a field and try to win items. All people who entered came away with a goodie bag and autographs. Do u want evertything free. Man, moan moan moan!!! Like I said a lot of Sport Franchises dont even do this much.

Ok MonkinHOF because you and I can afford to pay the $5 a bottle for water ,that does NOT mean that everyone could.

The purpose of this day was supposed to be to let fans, who otherwise could not, see their team. If you know anything about the metro area you should know that it is made up of all classes of people. There are people who are die hard fans that came out to see this happen and the 30 bucks they had to pay for their family to keep from becoming dehydrated from the heat was a huge investment, whether you think so or not.

I'm not trying to be nasty but it's very easy for the 'haves' to overlook the 'have nots'.
