Fans get sucker punched at every stadium. It has nothing to do with the Redskins, or with FedEx field. It has to do with alcohol and with people's heightened emotions.
As much as I hate the Cowboys it was wrong to throw the hat, and even worse to the Poke fan who kept it going. He should have just collected his hat and walked out as the game was over after that moment. These asshat fans make me wanna puke. Just enjoy the game
The author should not have brought a cowboy fan to our stadium. I don't let cowboy fans in my house or answer phone calls on game day.
If Redskins fans would keep their cowboy friends out of our stadium then this would have never happened.

When you wear your colors to an opposing stadium, especially in a game of this magnitude, you should expect heckling. Tossing a hat isn't THAT bad.
The entire FedExField staff is aggressively opposed to this kind of behavior, and will do everything they can to stop it once they learn of it. The attendants are all versed on how to respond to fights, or any behavior that dilutes another fan's enjoyment of the game.
A text to SKINS at 69050 followed by a section and row will bring Stadium security quickly - usually within a minute or two. You can also call 301 276-6100, but it's difficult to be heard with the crowd noise. Problem fans will be escorted out of the Stadium. If more serious charges are warranted, they'll be placed in a holding cell until after the game, and then process for arrest by the PG County police after the game.
This text info - SKINS 69050 - is displayed in all four corners of the stadium between the two suite levels. It can be seen from almost anywhere in the bowl.
****ing John Mara! His fingerprints are all over this "plant" of a "fan". Now he will take away our home games and move them to London.

Just a thought here. In the very rare instances that assistance from sercuity staff has been required in our section, they have been responsive, timely, and professional while taking care of the situation. With 82,000 folks, occasionally there will be a slip up, sounds like this was one of them but in no way indicative of the fan experience at the stadium IMO.
Still, whoever threw the hat is a total ***hole. But the reaction is what escalated the situation.
Pics or it didn't happen. But I guess he doesn't want to show his cowboys colors or reveal that he was the "friend" in this story.

Where's the blog post about the guy with a scratched up knuckle because some other Redskins fans face got in the way of his fist at the last home game? I heard he was blaming China because they made the hat that started the whole mess.
