Will anyone be traveling to any of the away playoff games?

  • Good deal on the bar. Unless something changes my group may be hitting that up now. However, i have heard it can be a pain to get to, from, and into that stadium so i may leave earlier then halftime.

  • Hi, first timer here! My husband and I will be going to the game, Seahawks fans living in Maryland. He has been to Penn Quarter and met a few other fans. You should know this bar is nowhere near the stadium. I'm not sure how long the metro rides will be, but I do know it is about a 20-30 minute walk to the stadium from the metro stop. So depending on where your hotel is, it might not make sense. There are no bars around the stadium, unfortunately. Would love to find out more about the Seahawks tailgate! We are coming with Redskins friends.
    Have been to the stadium tons of times, for Hawks games and others, and as long as you are cool with their fans, they will be cool with you. Actually, i hate to say it, but they are pretty lame in their own house at times, I've cheered louder for their team and told their fans to stand up when they weren't playing the Hawks of course!

  • Cool to see many going. As for going elsewhere as away fans, I don't usually fear that much. I don't drink and I don't act like an idiot thus putting a neon bullseye on my back.

    I have been to so many soccer matches overseas as an away supporter in rivalry matches and if I can survive those, I can survive almost anything. :17: :th2thumbs:

    I went to a SEA/BAL game a few years ago and was treated like crap. Thought I was going to get murdered outside of the stadium. FEDEX is rough on opposing fans, but not like BAL. It helps that visiting teams usually enjoy a good dose of "fans" at FEDEX. Hoping the same is true for Sunday.


    In fairness, in Baltimore you could feel that way at the grocery store so really going to a game in opposing team gear may be no different.

  • Not on the topic of this game but on going to away games: I went to a game at Soldier Field and it was a fine experience. I had one person comment as I walked into the stadium that I was brave (was just wearing a Seahawk T-Shirt) but other than that there were no incidences. Of course I didn't get drunk and look for any either so that might have helped.

  • Former Seahawks season ticket holder transplanted to DC and going to the game with wife and friend from Seattle. Want to find out if there is going to be a special tailgating area for Hawks fans at FedEx? Couldn't find the Facebook info a few posts up, so if anyone could give the details here, it would be appreciated. Thanks!

  • bestfightstory wrote:Yeah, Jordan, I read those comments, as well. Pretty shameful. I was even considering going incognito (no Hawks gear) if I went to the Skinz game. After almost being murdered over a football game once in my life, I just don't know that I have the stomach to want to put up with physically threatening behavior. And it's sad, because one of the greatest rewards of being a traveler for me is meeting other people from other places.

    On a side note: for the last couple years I have dreamed of attending two NFL playoff games on consecutive days..... Already looked into it for this weekend. IF I elected to, I could fly MSP-MKE in Saturday and rent a car and drive to Vikes/Packers in GRB then drive back to hotel in MKE, then on Sunday morning fly MKE-DTW-DCA and arrive several hours before kickoff of Seahawks game.

    It is sooooooo damn tempting.


    If you really want it to do it, this is the time. Baltimore on Saturday and Landover on Sunday. They are about 50 miles away!

    The game I went to in '05 (curse you, Josh Brown. friggin' doink!) was quite a tame experience overall. PLace seemed too sterile to be a football stadium with the fanbase I know they have. A little good natured verbal spaaring on the metro and in the parking lot, but cool people overall. Much better than say Cincy or Indy. Only Atlanta has classier fans, of the places I've been to.

    Let me get this straight. You're coming on our board telling our fans to not come to your stadium and cause trouble? Are you for real? It's us that needs to worry about you guys. I keep reading Extreme Skin fans talking about payback for Sean Taylor and making life as miserable as possible for Seattle. Have you not been reading all the Seattle fans in this thread talking about watching their backs? How stupid would Seattle fans entering that sort of atmosphere be to go in, horrendously outnumbered, and start something? Trust me. You don't need to worry about any Seattle fans.

    Worst experience I have ever have at a game was the 05 Skins v Seahawks at FedEx. I have been to Seahawks games in Seattle, ATL, JAX, Carolina, NYG, NYJ, NEP and Tampa.

    I dont taunt any fans. I keep to myself and the people i go with. . I respect the team and the stadium. I am visitor. Bad fans are everywhere.

    Go Hawks!

    I will absolutely put a skins fan in his place if he acts like a jackass. we are all american first, this means we love american football and while it is competitive...its all supposed to be in good fun for us as fans.

    that doesn't mean that it hurts to lose on either side...but for both teams to make it this far means they had a great season and neither team sucks...or whatever.

    i'm here to talk about the game not to be a jerk honestly. With all that said fans are still bitter about the ST stuff...so I'm not sure how some will act. ST was my favorite player and actually still is. I am not going to hold this against hawk fans anymore. Its time to let that crap go...

    Agreed. Wish more would have the same attitude. It's just football.

  • There are a ton of tickets available on stub hub. You can get Level 300 (upper deck tickets) starting at $80. I saw level 100 tickets starting at $150. Much cheaper than Redskins tickets which were about $120 for standing room only.
