Everything else is a flaming pile of dung, but the Washington Redskins have one thing going for them: They had the most expensive envelopes in the world.

That's the only explanation for this new revelation: If you wanted to pick up tickets at will call for a Washington football game this season, it would've cost you $50, unless you're a season-ticket holder.

The policy, which went into effect quietly, sounds like both a terrible idea and a very good joke. Alas, only one of those things is true: Washington is, indeed, gouging fans for an exorbitant fee that makes even Ticketmaster blush.

Fan reaction is, as one expects, quite poor:



And, just so there's no confusion, one reporter did bring up the fee with the Redskins front office.


Keep in mind, this is the same team that promised this summer to create a better experience for fans. They said that. Then they rolled out envelope fees. Now the policy is scrapped, but only season-ticket holders can use will call.

I'm not even mad. That's amazing.
