Maybe I’m wrong, but when I worked for the Redskins I always felt like fans would both enjoy and benefit from access to the team’s media guide. And at times over the years the printed version was made accessible, for a nominal fee. As printing costs increased and print runs dwindled, that practice was abandoned, but — like just about everything else in the universe — the media guide is now available electronically. And, apparently, it’s been quietly made available to the public in that format as well.
If you have an iPad, you can find it in the App Store, either by searching or by clicking here. (The file isn’t optimized for viewing on an iPhone but I suppose it would technically work there as well.) Or you can get a PDF version here. Maybe everyone else already knew about this, but I was both surprised and pleased.
(And, yes, despite Dan Snyder’s reputation for squeezing money out of every opportunity, it appears to actually be free.)
Once you download this, you too can easily reference the number of games Tyler Polumbus started in 2011 when you need it for an already-outdated-and-misguided blog post. Enjoy.
