I can't imagine Snyder or Leonsis hiding behind the league as an excuse for something like this. Typical Lerner money lust.

Can't imagine Snyder, really????  There's not much I can't imagine Snyder doing for a buck or to deflect criticism

So if I owned Living Social and starting at 11:20 I get paid 5.36 for every rider entering Metro and at 11:10 I see a large crowd heading down Half Street I'm going to create some kind of disturbance to slow everyone up for the next ten minutes.

Nah, this is like being the "official office supply store of the Washington Nationals" or the "official decaffeinated soft drink of the Washington Nationals."  Living Social probably sees this as a marketing opportunity. The only thing that is different is that the  money does not go into the Nats as revenue for the ad which they then kick out; it simply relieves them of an expense.  The Nats could have stepped in and said to Living Social, "we'll let you be the official sponsor of Nats post-game metro,"  but that would be cumbersome because of the contingencies and deposit.  Much simpler if the Nats do not take a cut on this.

There's a bunch more Nats playoff gear available on MLB.com:

This guy on eBay has shirts with Mission October, World Series, and the Curly W on them that are not available from the store yet.

Leonsis isn't better than any other owner.  He raised the cost of my capitals tickets by 25% when they are worse team than previous year, just to make up for his poor investment in the Wizards.

living social only needs 5,504 fans to ride the metro after each game to recoup its deposit. over 5,000 people rode the metro home after each of the two madonna concerts this week. i would think that over 10,000 people use the metro after a sold out nats game. 10 minutes won't make any difference. i expect the net loss for living social will be very small when it's all said and done...which, i think, makes this even more embarrassing for the nats.

Misers don't embarrass easily, if at all.

you're right, of course. but, as a fan of the team, i am embarrassed by the whole ordeal.

Gregory McCarthy, vice president of the Nationals, called the agreement “win-win-win” for the fans, the city and the organizations involved. “We want you to stay as late as you like,” he said of fans.

what a prick.  :roll:

It would be shocking to me if they hadn't talk to the team in the first place. It's likely their out from Selig's bullcrap.

The Mission October shirts were only $25 at the park.  Youll pay more than that with shipping.
