    Red Flag Day

    There was a suggestion in the yell earlier today that on Sunday fans take red flags and throw them on the field when Childress walks out on the field as a challenge to his moronic call to waive Randy Moss.

    I think this is a great idea and if I were going to the game I would do it. I would encourage anyone going to the game to find a piece of red cloth and take it with them and let Childress know what we think of his Randy Moss call.

    LOL, I suggested it. This would be great if we could get people to do it, however I'm unsure if Chilly will be present :laugh:

    I think this would be a great idea, only problem is people not doing it wouldn't know what it means.

    Communication.

    Put up posters outside the Dome entrances, and have people handing out the red flags, explaining what it's all about.

    Re: Red Flag Day

    It would have to be done by masses of people, since throwing objects in the dome can result in immediate ejection from the game and/or loss of season ticket privaleges.

    Waving FIRE CHILDRESS red flags however, is totally acceptable.

    Re: Red Flag Day

    Singer is right - waiving the flags would be a safer move and just as effective.

    However, it would need to be done by a good majority of the people in the stands in order to actually send a message. At around 65,000 seats, I don't know if there is really anyone out there who is willing to put up the $$$ for that many flags.

    You couldn't use the ground markign flags because they usually come with a long wire staff on it, and I doubt those would make it into the stadium. You would have to go with some kind of red cloth that we could wave, similar to the touchdown towels. Regular red fabric but into 12X6" sheets would probably look, but you are still looking at several thousand dollars to put it together.

    Fun idea, but not really feasible.

    Re: Red Flag Day

    Eh... no one in Minnesota has any corporate type connections? Would be a great marketing opportunity for a small to medium sized company. Not only would they get a lot of in person advertising, if it gets big enough they might get TV coverage (imagine the sideline reporter holding one talking about who distributed them) for both a broader local coverage and some national coverage (I believe the AZ/MN game is being televised on Fox here in SLC).

    Time is sort of short but I gotta believe a printing company can stamp something simple out extremely fast. You'd have a day or two to line up the funding.
    The true measure of a man is what he'd do knowing he'd never be found out.

    Nope. I approve of the move.

    And I would take a moment to remind fans that throwing objects onto the field will result in the team getting a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
