Redskins invite me to join "The Loud Crowd"
Early Thursday morning, I received an invitation from the Redskins to "Join the LOUD CROWD" by buying "Limited View Terrace Seats" for the upcoming season. This was my first invitation to buy non-premium Redskins tickets since I joined the wait list in 2007, making it a momentous day indeed. Since you may also have received this invitation, I'll answer a few questions.
What is the Loud Crowd?
The Loud Crowd is another name for the Limited View Terrace Seats, also known as the obstructed view seats, which were added to FedEx Field in 2004. They're located in the lower level, with varying degrees of obstructiveness. The team is inviting me -- and others -- to go visit the stadium to check out these seats, as they apparently do every year for a subset of wait list members whose names have not yet come up for regular seats.
Why is it called the Loud Crowd?
The obstructed view seats are built on aluminum risers, where stomping can generate noise.
Why did you, Dan Steinberg, get the offer this season?
Similar offers to fans on the wait list have been made in past seasons, and this year they added the 2007 wait listers to the queue. A team official said the limited view seats have sold about three times as fast this year as last, and that only around 50 remain. If you're on the wait list and you buy these Loud Crowd seats, you do not lose your place in the wait list.
What sort of rhetoric was used in your offer?
It'll sound familiar to you, but here it is:
With the arrival of new Head Coach Mike Shanahan, General Manager, Bruce Allen and Quarterback Donovan McNabb, the Future is Now!...Be here when we go head to head with our division rivals, Cowboys, Eagles and Giants....This is your chance to be a part of the action. Don't miss it!
Are you, Dan Steinberg, going to be a part of the Loud Crowd in 2010?
I guess until they pull my credentials, I'll just keep going to the press box, but you never know.
