But the big one we so crave, the one we'd won 18 times prior to 1991, the League Championship, now Premier League; we haven't won since like the Redskins and the quest for a 4th Lombardi.
I appreciate it's more difficult to understand as all we (the Redskins) play for is ultimately the SB. (Although the divisional and conference titles are nice along the way.). Where as in soccer, you've different competitions, and not just the one through the season like in the NFL.
But ironically, for me at least being my two sporting loves, the main prize both teams so crave has alluded them for 21 years now. And counting.
All things good & bad must come to an end. Hopefully the drought is over this Sunday
Yep.... its pretty sad and pathetic that we basically have no home field advantage....... Embarrassing!!
-Come on redskins nation we can do better!! HTTR

All the negativity and debate wasn't intended by me... that just seems to come with the territory and that's what I wanted to avoid with this thread in particular.
I don't know if I have or haven't; but if I have personally come across as anything you mentioned above, I apologise. That certainly wasn't the intention.
How about we start small and just stay until the final whistle. I was at the Bengals game and boy did the stadium clear out when we were down by 14 and 7 mins to go. Those kind of fans can just stay home. If not for the false start and Kyles shananigans we could have came back and tied the game up.
While I did not like the outcome. I really enjoyed the game and watching RGIII play his first home game.
I don't know what to make of it..I was there last week and at kickoff the stands were still half full...too many people coming in from their beer infested tail gate parties, encountering necessary security, and not planning their timing well. The stadium has always had that problem, where fans come in late. Yes, prices have a lot to do with that, but there's no pre-game pizzazz, or inspiring half-time activities. It's tough to ask the fans to get in early. Parking costs on the order of $30 or higher, and it's not easy getting into the lots if you arrive less than 2 hours before the game! RFK had an identity, and all I know is that FedEx used to be "The House that Jack Built", or just "The Jack". It's so corporate now...Maybe a few exciting wins will start to fill it up again with REAL FANS, but I think the Schnyde's gonna have to reach into his pocket to make the pre-game stuff moe enticing to get fans to come in early...
My mom has season tickets and I come up for 3 or 4 games a year. I'll be there this Sunday. I'm probably one of those fans that gets classified as a sitter. They have seats in there for a reason. I'm not saying you can't stand at certain times and I understand that fans want to stand up and be loud, but I cannot stand the entire game. I have lower back soreness if I stand too long, but I get up and down depending on the game situation.
I'm not a yeller or screamer on defense, I'm more of a guy who watches the games and I yell when a good play happens or if the ref screws up a call. I don't sit their banging on the seats or screaming at the top of my lungs. I think it's wasted energy, but that's just me. I watch the game intently and do my part when necessary.
Some fans are different then others so if you want to scream so much that your throat is sore or you have a headache, that's fine. I have no problem with that kind of passion, but don't chastise me for not being that way. It doesn't make me any less passionate or any less of a fan. I support the team in other ways. We get there on time and are in our seats no later than 12:30 for a 1 PM game. Occasionally in a tense situation (4th quarter of a close game and the defense needs help) I'll make noise at the appropriate time, but I refuse to yell at the top of my lungs for 3 hours.
At the Bengals game, I was getting annoyed with the RG3 chants and was yelling for our fans to be quiet and stop the chants. One guy looked at me and I told him, "do it between plays, not while he's trying to bark out the signals or do it during timeouts."

I, unfortunately, could not afford the season tickets this year but will still make it to a couple games later in the season. I always was seated at least 15 minutes prior to kick off so I could see the team presentation and get fired up. I always said I can not believe that the stadium was never full until haf way through the first quarter. I understand we have not been good thwe past few years but I put some of the blame on the fans for not being supportive 100% of the time by showing up early and filling the stadium early. The players see this and I am sure it affects their pregame emotions as well. Larry Michael said it on Redskins Nation this past Monday and had this very talk on the show. ARRIVE early and get in your seats prior to player introductions!
