 That's what the plan is. If you had your ear to the ground today, you may have heard a rumor or two about a tailgating policy change at FedEx Field for this upcoming season. Matt Terl (blog.redskins.com) breaks it down nicely:

 

The most significant new procedure will have parking attendants directing fans who wish to tailgate in more than one space to the back of lots, where they will be allowed to occupy two spaces until required for additional vehicles. Fans who wish to only park, or tailgate within their single parking spot, will be directed to the front of lots, filling the lot from front to back. Tailgating is permitted in all lots, except Platinum. Platinum lot parkers who choose to tailgate will be provided passes for Purple lots.

"Everyone who wants to tailgate should be able to tailgate. We absolutely believe that," Gershman said. "This is designed to improve the experience for fans who want to tailgate."

"Our outside consultant analyzed the flow on roads and in the parking lots at FedEx Field, with cameras recording the traffic patterns. What we found was that when tailgaters spread into multiple spaces, it caused congestion in the lots, and resulted in inconvenience to everyone - the fans tailgating and the fans who were just looking to park in their assigned lots," Gershman said.                                                                                                                                       


Here's the link to The Official Redskins Blog article about the tailgating changes.

 I know that tailgating is big part of why a lot of us are season ticket holders. Snyder & Co. should know that screwing up that experience would bring a serious backlash from the fans who have supported this team through thick and thin. I'm sure there will be some adjustments to be made at first. But, it sounds like the overall tailgating experience will improve in the long run.
