Brand Entrapment — NFL Style

Ok, via Brand Autopsy, this little nugget on the Washington Redskins requiring all credit card purchases for season tickets to be made with a Washington Redskins Extra Points Mastercard. [here]

Oh, did I mention that you can only buy tickets through Orbitz with the Orbitz Visa? Or pay for your purchases at Amazon with the Amazon Visa? Or pay for your Delta flight with your Delta SkyMiles American Express.

Whoever thought this little gem up in the Washington Redskins front office should lose their job. But, the season ticket subscribers are going along with it! Only 10 have complained?

Have we finally become the Culture of Sheep?
