The Commanders don’t want people to talk about the recent past. The probably aren’t thrilled with the attention being paid to certain aspects of the present.

Via Daniel Kaplan of TheAthletic.com, the secondary ticket platform GameTime has tickets to the team’s preseason opener against the Panthers going for as little as $1.

Yes, for a single small portrait of George Washington, you can watch the team that represents the city that bears his name. (I cannot tell a lie; $1 is still probably too much.)

The lowest price through the team’s official reseller platform, Ticketmaster.com, is $30 per ticket, currently.

Interest in the team seems to be as low as ever. The crowd at one of the early training-camp practices was embarrassingly light, and owner Daniel Snyder continues to be under investigation both by Congress and the league office. Frankly, the sooner he’s gone, the better everything will be.

Unfortunately, he likely won’t be going until he’s damn good and ready. The league seems to be reluctant to take him on, either because it doesn’t want a protracted legal fight or because it potentially fears that he can cause problems with things he knows from 23 years as an owner.

  1. Dan Snyder probably couldn’t pay people to get them into the stadium right now

  2. An interesting idea i would love to read your take on, is that as players line up for new contracts, as Lamar wouldn’t sign his new deal until Kyler got his, and how Burrows wont sign his until Herbert gets paid first, I’d be interested in hearing what owners may or may not be positioning the sale of their franchise to occur after two or three franchise-sales occur first; what teams are going to become available soon, and are they playing the waiting game so that they can get a few more $billion than they would get if they sold today

  3. I really feel for Washington fans — that owner is slowly killing all hope and team loyalty.

  4. It doesn’t help that they decided to schedule this game at 1 PM on a Saturday in August…who wouldn’t want to sit in 90+ degree to watch a preseason game?

  5. Still gonna cost $60 to park your car. $30 to rent a locker for your wife’s purse. And $70 for 2 cheeseburgers, fries, and a beer.


  6. I would definitely Go to a preseason game for $1.”

    So would I, if two professional teams were playing.

  7. Narcissists never get it do they? His ownerhsip has been an epic failure. People love the team but clearly can’t stand him. If nothing else gets him out the door, maybe a few more years of losing his butt in dismal ticket sales, will do it.

  8. Good, I hope the team goes under for Dan caving in and changing the name. The fans won’t forgive him.

  9. I went up there for the open practice last week and was quickly reminded of how awful that trip is coming from VA. I live about 60 miles from Fedex field and it took 2 hours to get there and 2 1/2 to get home. Wherever they put the next stadium, I hope they include the proper infrastructure so it doesn’t make it an all day trip.

  10. Don’t agree with the name change and the push for it that was dropped by all writers even though they listed other teams that should change as well if even one person was offended. After they got what they really wanted in trying to ruin Washington, all other calls for change were dropped. It was never about the name it was about crippling Snyder.

    But it won’t end my love of the team, I’m still here and so will be many others, All on board for the Commanders and Carson Wentz no matter what you throw at us . We are still here !
