Redskins send panorama print to premium seat holders

By Dan Steinberg

I got an e-mail from a longtime Skins fan friend of mine this week, telling me that an impressive panoramic shot of FedEx Field had arrived at his home, courtesy of the Redskins. He also included a scan of the letter the team had sent him. Highlights:

"In 2010, we enhanced our fans' game day experience with spectacular new amenities, including our new HD Video Scoreboards showing faster replays, out of town scores and fantasy stats....In 2011, Redskins Season Ticket Holders will continue to experience the best value in sports entertainment with additional stadium improvements and even more new and exciting experiences planned for your year-round enjoyment!...

"As 2011 begins, Head Coach Mike Shanahan and General Manager Bruce Allen continue to work tirelessly to build a team you can be proud of on and off the field for many years to come. Thank you for your continued support. Please enjoy the enclosed Panorama photograph of the 2010 season home opener at FedEx Field as a gift. We look forward to serving you in 2011!"

The panorama photo, pictured above, is 44" x 18" and sells for $199 at the team's online store. A team spokesman told me the panorama was sent as a year-end thank you gift to all premium seat holders (about 5,000 accounts), and that the team annually sends something to these seat holders (last year, they got crystal desk cubes, for example.) With the changes to the stadium this year, most available images of FedEx were outdated, so the team thought this would be an appropriate and "really cool" gift.

I think it's cool.

"additional stadium improvements and even more new and exciting experiences planned for your year-round enjoyment!"

Good to know. Please make this a priority:

How many visible visiting fans do you think they had to photoshop out?

Ooooohhh, aaaahhhh, look at that. Here's a shiny new toy for you, keep looking at it and maybe you'll be distracted from the actual product on the field.

Ooo, which night game was this from? The barely-a-win over the eventual 6-10 Cowboys, the Indy game where the D got burned repeatedly for big plays (and a loss) or the Eagles game which wasn't a game at all? forget it. thanks for the memories. who else is rooting for a lockout?

That cool. Be nicer if the stadium looked nicer, but there's only so much they can do about that.

After the crap they put on the field the past 10 years they should give alot more than a picture of the worst stadium in the league

It should come with little Eagles player stickers that you can move up and down the field.

You know, so it's like the real thing.

Another bone thrown to the fans to try to distract from seeing the mess that is this organization today.
