Washington Redskins Facing Awkward Situation with Game Tickets
Robert Griffin III will not be the starting quarterback in Washington this season. That decision turns a marketing campaign into an awkward situation.
The NFL has used the "back to football" mantra for the past few seasons. While that does apply to the teams and fans, it won't really apply to RGIII this season. Unfortunately these were already printed.
These tickets are printed much in advance of the season, but this might now just be a collectors item. Not sure when the last time a backup quarterback was printed on a team's ticket, (don't give me Christian Ponder on a Vikings ticket, he at least started the game) but it makes for quite the funny situation.
Or awkward situation.
Let's just go with awkward.
