Apparently, the Redskins have gone to direct mail in soliciting Washington area folks, in an attempt to provide fans with the "once in a lifetime opportunity" of having up to eight tickets per game. The best part is, these mailing aren't even going to people from the waiting list (I mean, how could they if it's fictional?).
"I have no idea why we got this," said a recipient of the offer, which was addressed to a generic official of the organization he works for. "Nobody here ever signed up for the waiting list. They even misspelled our name."A note to Snyder and the Redskins: It doesn't make you less of a person to admit you are having trouble selling as many season tickets as you'd like -- especially in this economic climate. This could have even been another case of self-sabotage -- which Snyder should know plenty about when it comes to the Redskins -- where he pontificated about how it was so impossible to get tickets that many people didn't even try.
Well, Redskins fans, you can start trying now. Apparently they are desperate enough to start sending out mass mailings.
