Daniel Snyder is better at some things than others. He might not be particularly good at free agent acquisitions, assembling a competent organizational staff and basically all aspects of player movement and management, but when it comes to creating an additional revenue stream out of nothing, he is second to none.â†µ
His newest plan is a standing room only section that is likely called the "Loud Crowd." Is a catchy name supposed to make me forget how exhausting it is to stand for entire football game, particularly while the drunkard next to me keeps falling onto me and spilling beer all over my shoes? Because it doesn't.â†µ
Here is what the new seats look like, from Hogs Haven.â†µ
I'm not impressed, but that's just me. If I know one thing about Skins' fans, it's that those seats will be sold out come game day. Forget offense or defense, Snyder has that bottom line under control. It's what he's best at.â†µ
UPDATE: Maybe I was being a little too cynical. After publishing this story, the gang at Hogs Haven alerted us via tweet that these standing room seats are something that fans have actually been asking for. If that is the case, then I am glad to be proven wrong about Snyder's intentions with these seats, but given his reputation, I can't imagine the changes he made won't prove to be beneficial financially, as well.
