  • Just warning you guys, the people on the Redskins board made promises to treat any Hawk fans who went their like crap. They really do not like us, and they think we are classless. So please, if you do go there, don't be a total douche.

  • I'm about 50 miles south of DC and am hoping to get some tickets to the game.

    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.

  • I am heading out there on Saturday night, I have a hotel in Alexandria and I fly back from Philly on Tuesday. I have two tickets in the 300 level S.R.O.

    I have been to a few away games in san francisco and I have been to dozens for the Sounders. I was hoping maybe some of the Seahawks fans would want to meet in a bar in Washington D.C and we could cab or walk to the game together.

    This is going to be epic and I think in the future the NFL would be wise to dedicate a small part of one section to away fans, it might seem silly but it really does cut back on the incidents, of which I expect there will be none.

    I don't know many bars in D.C, I did hear there is one that is seahawks friendly maybe we should all meet up there before the game if it is close enough to the stadium. Or we can look into getting a parking area and all meet there during tailgating times.

  • I've heard from King 5 sports that the Penn Quarter Sports Tavern is Seahawks friendly. It's about 11 miles from the stadium so some sort of ground transportation would have to be arranged if we were to go there. If we have a group of 25ish of us, a bar will happily host us and we might be able to get drink specials.

  • To anyone going, be smart and be safe! I've read some less than welcoming comments from some Skins fans on that insane ExtremeSkins board. They really have created this insane opinion of Hawks fans based off a couple isolated Sean Taylor comments. Talking payback for stories they've created and blown way to hell. About women being molested and people screaming racist epithets. It's kinda scary and bordering on sociopathic behavior. As if they secretly want a reason to act out against our fans. I've always heard it's not the most inviting stadium to outsiders to begin with. Add to that a fanbase rabid for a playoff win, and who wants payback for us beating them the last two times they've made the postseason. It's a powder keg, if I've seen one. Stand tall and rep our guys. But watch your back!

  • 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.

    All this talk about being treated badly at FedEx is just that - talk. We are actually too nice.

  • I would like to do a pregame meet up at a bar. I've heard from multiple sources that the Penn Quarter Sports Tavern (or something like that) is a Seahawks friendly bar in the D.C area. The only problem is that the stadium is in Landover Maryland, it's a quick walk to either the red or yellow line and 2 stops to the connecting rail station on the blue line, the blue line then goes to the Stadium. The game has a 4:30 Eastern start time so as long as we left the first bar we were at by 3 PM we would get off the stop by the stadium with easily an hour to get into the game.

    I will start a new thread about a pre-game meet up. If I get enough I'll call up the Seahawks friendly bar in D.C and make a reservation.

  • There is a Washington DC Seattle Seahawks Fan Group that meets at Penn Quarter Sports Tavern for every game. Website:
    http://www.meetup.com/Seahawks-WashingtonDC/

    Penn Quarter Sports Tavern
    639 Indiana Ave NW
    Washington, DC 20004

    I know they use to get a pretty large group of Seahawks fans for the games, but I havent kept in touch this year, so I'm not sure what kind of numbers they get.

    The bar is located very near the Washington National Mall, across from the National Archives. Its about 11 miles from Fed Ex Field - probably take you about 1/2 hour to drive.

    I just called Penn Quarter Sports Tavern about their Seahawks freindliness and they said they will have a whole section set up for Seahawks fans. There is a group of Seahawks fans in D.C that regularly meet there so everything is pretty much all ready taken care of. I plan on getting there at noon and I plan on leaving to go catch the metro to the stadium at 2:30 or about halftime of the AFC playoff game whichever comes first.

    The Address of the bar/restaurant is 639 Indiana Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20004, this is quite a ways from the stadium, but it is only half a mile away from a blue line station (Blue Line is the subway that takes you to FedEx Field)

    Here are the Directions for walking from Penn Quarter Sports Tavern to the Blue Line Metro Stop.

    You'll get off at the Morgan Boulevard station, and it's about a 15 minute walk from that station to the stadium, you might want to call a cab, but my guess is that it'll probably be faster to walk.

    Based on my experiences with away travel with the Hawks in San Francisco and tons of away travel for the Sounders, walking in with a group is always the best, especially in stadiums like Fedex or Candlestick in which the stadium is completely surrounded by ample parking and ample room for tailgating. You might be shocked, but drunk people tend to be the ones that act like assholes, so being in a bigger group tends to help discourage this.

  • 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:

    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!
