Kind of weird after a new QB and a win. 

 

On a home opener nontheless

 

Also, I'm not entirely sure I believe it since their PR and FO is poorly run (Bruce Allen vs McCloughan, spilling Cousins' contract details to the public to save face, horribly treating their cheerleaders, etc.)

It was only a matter of time. The stadium is in an awkward location.. far from many fans ** and difficult to get to as a Metro rider.

 

 

** I don't know about most most people, but when I lived in DC trips between MD and VA were equivalent to trips between Buffalo and Ontario--to be avoided.

PS: MD drivers are nuts

Oh, I think we all know the REAL reason the stadium won't be full...

It's a totally different era now compared to the old days with a packed RFK, eternal sellouts, the hogs sitting in the front row wearing their jewelry, etc.

 

The new stadium is out in the middle of nowhere in MD and surrounded by huge parking lots, much like our stadium, and the atmosphere in terms of drunken !@#$s is among the worst in the league.

 

Also a bigger stadium capacity...

 

It's just different now.

I think this is a byproduct of outrageous ticket prices and PSL's. Expect more of the same in NFL cities over the years that used to have guaranteed sellouts. Also lifting the blackout rule is going to have an effect.

They haven't sold out for several years. Often the stadium has a huge percentage of opponents fans, especially when Eagles, Giants, Cowboys, Packers, Steelers and a few others are in town.  It's only recently that the Skins are lifting the cover on the big myth that every game is a sellout.  They've had season ticket availability and individual games for several years.

The season ticket thing has gotten bad for them since a story a few years back where they sued an old couple who could not pay that had agreed to I think a 20 year commitment. At that point they had a waiting list but at that point many people decided that season tickets was not worth the risk, along with several other reasons.

I’m sure someone will blame Kaepernick.

 

...not a chance....Washington Post blamed Trump for being complicit with his hurricane response so Deadskins non-sellout is a subset......

Not when you have a hurricane bearing down on you and have no idea of how it will affect things

It's turning the other way for the time being.  Yeah, should be cloudy as hell, but storm will be off away in dustance.

Just like in the other sports, they're pricing out the common fan (aka the riff raff) by design.   Every pro sports owner aspires now to a wine and cheese crowd, which is what you get in big cities with winning teams.  They'd rather sell one premium seat to a guy who won't show up most of the time than sell ten upper deck seats to guys who never miss a game.
