    Default [sigh] Ticket office snafu - Robert Helu Jr and London Fletcher #58

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/...tWPX_blog.html

    so this year they put helu on the tickets - but called him Robert Helu Jr.

    they also put london fletcher on there, but listed his number as 58.

    how does this happen... :\

    it's not a big deal but still...

    This is pretty ridiculous, the more I think about it. How does this happen? Its not quite as bad as the Nationals misspelling their name on the front of their uniform, but its up there. Those are two pretty glaring errors, that any average fan probably would have caught.

    i'm sure it happens like this:

    they provide a template to the print company, and assume it's pretty hard for them to **** up.

    they **** it up.

    it never gets caught before they are shipped.

    i'm sure it's no one worth a ****'s fault thats high up (read: VP of this or that, or snyder himself). i'm sure it's someone low on the totem pole who was trusted with a relatively simple job and just failed miserably at it.

    So you think the shipping company changed Roy's name to Robert, and London's number to 58? I doubt it - pretty sure this happened in house. Probably gave it to some marketing intern who just plain got it wrong.

    no, i think they were given a template that had a mistake, or the printing company made a mistake.

    i'm not sure what your experience with printing companies is, but i have quite a bit and they're awful. you'd be shocked the kind of mistakes they can make - seriously. i'm not willing to put this past the printing company at all.

    keep in mind i didn't blame the shipping company at any point. i said printing

    edit: and no, the tickets are not printed in house. i'm not even sure they're designed in house to be honest.

    oh and lanky helu is right next to griffen. it's completely possible the person making the template copied griffens name (as a template) and forgot to change robert.

    the possible reasons are endless :\

    edit: good lord my typing ability is awful today...

    I can understanding ****ing up on Helu.

    But Fletcher ?!?!?!

    That's a total slap in the face.

    As if he doesn't get enough disrespect, or lack of respect, as it is.

    Whoever's job it is to approve the final template, for the team, should be fired.

    If the printer screwed the pooch, they should reimburse any fees paid, put out a full page add in the papers admitting, and apologizing for, the unforgivable blunder, and provide next years printing, free of charge. Along with firing whoever's job it was to catch such things.
