Washington Times strikes content and marketing partnership with Redskins
The Washington Times ^ | July 27, 2014

Posted on 07/28/2014 8:59:24 AM PDT by jazusamo

The Washington Times and the Washington Redskins announced a unique partnership that will make the newspaper a content and marketing partner of the team.

Under the partnership, the Redskins and the Times will collaborate on unique content offerings throughout the year designed to provide Redskins fans with compelling, timely and unique coverage.

The offerings will include a weekly “Redskins Weekend Game Guide,” which will wrap the front page of the Times’ print edition each Friday during the NFL season and a new free digital magazine called “The Redskins Report,” which will showcase exclusive content about the Redskins. Both features are expected to launch in August.

In addition, Times’ sports reporters, such as Thom Loverro and Zac Boyer, will provide commentary and analysis on selected Redskins‘ radio and TV shows and also appear on the team’s online pregame show and the halftime shows. The halftime show also appears on FedExField’s HD video boards during halftime.

The team will provide the Times with commentaries and access to players, coaches and front office personnel that will be incorporated into the Times’ weekly guides, digital magazine and special sections.

Racists! Haters!

Here's to the Redskins losing to the Bears in the NFC Championship this year.

As a life long Chicago Bears fan, I heartly endorse your statement regarding the Bears winnin the NFC Championship.

Regarding ‘racisits and haters’ for using the Redskins moniker, I do not endores, unless you said it in satire.

If it wasn't satirical I'd root for them to go 0-16 not go the championship. ;-)

But this might cause a backlash like that video caused that riot in Benghazi , call it Geronimo's revenge.

Can't happen. We here in central Florida have been reassured that Lovie Smith will bring the Bucs to the playoffs with 35 year old Josh McCown at QB. ISYN!(I $hit You Not)

If the NFL weren’t so intent on shoving sodomy down our throats, I might become a blatant REDSKINS fan just to irritate liberals.

As a Bears fan, I don't see McCown as the weak link in that clause.

Obviously. What are the odds that either would make it to the championship game, let alone both?

A dear friend of mine, who has since passed away, was a lifelong Redskins fan. He said there are only two things keeping the Redskins from another Superbowl.......a defense and an offense....................

There are 16 teams in each conference, so it must be 2 in 16, or 1 in 8 that either team would make it to the NFC Championship game.
That they would BOTH wind up in the championship game, I would think it would be like 1 in 64 or 8 squared...................Just a guess..............

the Redskins should require authorization to print a story about their team

then deny access to the WashPo

WashTimes would have a huge spike in sales, and the WashPo would take a shot to the nuts for messing with them

I honestly don’t know if they dropped it but if so they’ve brought it back, they’re covering all sports.

One of the comments after the article says that WaPo has been censoring the Redskins name, if true and they continue to do it it’ll cost them with this new coverage by the WT.

The Washington Post decision to not use “Redskins” is working out great, for the Washington Times.
