Looking for Section Organizers

I'm looking for 2 or 3 volunteer organizers for each sign section. I'll put these folks in touch with each other to help out at game time. Section organizers would be responsible for

  • Telling people about the sign at game time
  • Bringing multiple copies of the seating chart for their section to the game
  • Whatever else you can think of that seems useful!

It's OK if you aren't sitting in the section you're organizing, but it would probably help. Here's a list of the sections still needing organizers:

  • 401
  • 402
  • 403
  • 404
  • 405
  • 406
  • 422
  • 423
  • 424
  • 425
  • 427
  • 428
  • 429
  • 430
  • 431
  • 432
  • 450
  • 451
  • 452
  • 453

I'll cross out each section when enough folks have volunteered. Send an email if you're interested.

A number of folks with seats in the lower bowl have asked how they can help. Some will be visiting the upper-sections to spread word of the sign. Others are planning to switch seats to the upper deck for this game or will move up temporarily to fill in empty seats as necessary.

Jeff Lavine suggests that the best time for lower-bowl folks to move up and fill in empty seats is the start of the second half. That makes sense to me. You can read about Jeff's confiscated sign here.

UPDATE: Email link was broken. Now fixed.


  1. First off, great idea with the Fire Snyder sign. I'm a little skeptical about whether it'll happen, but I sure hope so.

    Here's another thought, which might be a little easier to coordinate, is complementary to the sign idea, and is essentially impossible to prevent on Snyder's part. What about setting a time for the crowd to get a "FI-re SNY-der (clap, clap, clap-clap-clap)" chant going?

    I would think that if the Redskins only have 2 or 3 wins heading into the December games against the Giants and Cowboys, those would be prime targets for the synchronized chant idea. Both games will be the only NFL games on at the time, so if the chant gets going say at the end of the first half, it's almost guaranteed to get noticed. And it could be organized the same way the Fire Snyder sign is being organized, though the only thing needed would be a bunch of copies of an instruction sheet. Which could be as simple as "On the first play after the 2 min warning in the first half, start the following chant ..." You're telling me that if the Redskins are 2-11 coming off a loss to the Raiders (or even 3-10), Redskins fans (and even whatever Giants fans are there) wouldn't get behind a "FI-re SNY-der (clap, clap, clap-clap-clap)" chant?

    Anyway, just a thought. If I were going to any of the remaining games, I'd be happy to help out with the sign or whatever else. Here's hoping you can make it happen.

  2. Tickets are pretty cheap on StubHub, Just get in the stadium and migrate to where you are needed. If I were in the DC area I would join, no doubt.

  3. Redskins fans are not the brightest fans in the world. Why are you buying tickets which is supporting this idiot owner. The only way you are going to have any change is to boycott the games and hit him in the pocket book. Stop going to games you morons.

  4. The Redskins have sold season tickets for all seats for decades. The 2009 seats have already been sold by the team so any buying and selling that happens now is on the secondary market and makes no difference to the team.

  5. Stubhub is another source of revenue for Snyder. Use Craigslist.

  6. We are looking forward to participating. I made this customized tshirt for myself and thought I'd share.

  7. People can sneak in white t-shirts to pass out by wearing a bunch on their body. The security guards can't question our choice of clothing.

  8. The goal should definitely be for the Monday night game against the Giants. Of course this doesn't preclude some test runs before then. More than likely the Sunday night game vs. the Cowboys will be moved for something with playoff implications.

  9. I'll be in 437 tomorrow. I got these tickets last second and flew back to your site to see if I could participate.

    Too bad I'm in the corner but I think you're doing great work here. Keep it up!
