Can the Redskins move back to RFK?

I know this may be pointless because it's not going to happen but this team has NO Homefield advantage at FedEx. You look at teams like Baltimore, Atlanta, GB, Pitts etc and teams know going in that it's a dogfight. I feel lie opposing teams are playing at a neutral site in Landover. I'd like to know what our record is all time at FedEx? I bet it's under .500 or pretty close. This team was great at RFK and actually had an advantage there.

Losses do crazy things to message boards.

^ not really man because this has been a problem for this team even when we made the playoffs. FedEx is horrible for any HF advantage, everytime an opposing team scores I hear a ton of cheers? WTF

Well even tho I kinda agree with Bushead, I remember the the Monday night game against the steelers, I swear if it wasn't for the symbol on the field, you would have thought the steelers were home!

Re: Can the Redskins move back to RFK?

Not going to happen for a multitude of reasons.

1. Dan Snyder has invested too much money into Fedex Field.
2. They have like a 30 year lease agreement with PGC to stay at Fedex, and it would cost the Skins money to break that lease
3. They left RFK because it's pretty old, and I'm pretty sure it doesn't have the luxury boxes Fedex has.
4. I'm not entirely sure but I think DC United still plays at RFK.
5. It's just not going to happen, a new stadium will get built in DC before the Skins ever move back to RFK.

Good teams have home field advantage. A stadium alone doesn't make u a better team.

So out of 14 seasons at Fedex, we've only had a winning record in 5 of those seasons. Definitely not good. In stark contrast, Matt Ryan is 18-1 at home as a starter for the Falcons.

It's not the stadium that's making us suck guys. It's our coaching and overpaid players.

Re: Can the Redskins move back to RFK?

Agreed with the above poster.

Although I believe it is so bad with opposing team fans invading FedEx field because of whoever is in charge of tickets, selling group seats/discounts for fans of opposing teams to come and see the game there.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but i believe that is the reason why the steelers invaded us on that monday night game in 2008.

As long as the Redskins care more about selling tickets, instead of making sure the tickets go to skins fans, we will always have this problem.

Can't argue with that. Then again, you can't argue with 44ever's post either. I'm not too concerned about the winning edge at Fedex, I just don't want to hear opponents' fans when they make a big play.

Re: Can the Redskins move back to RFK?

I understand a stadium isn't the reason but it sure hurts our team when half the fans are cheering for the opposing team. It's just frustrating I guess

Re: Can the Redskins move back to RFK?

It's always the team first...but I do think that our fans are very fickle, I know I am as well. I need things to make me excited, and when stuff starting going poorly, I tend to just get negative and mad, as I think a lot of people at the stadium do as well... I think that sometimes goes down and does have an affect on the team.

Re: Can the Redskins move back to RFK?

^ there's times when I think it's as loud as any but then there is times where the fans just don't get loud at all.. Is the stadium to big? I've never been but from what I've heard it's just not a favorable place to play.

All these are true. But your #1 point he has a lot invested because he when he bought the team they already had moved to FedEX. He has invested money to make the stadium better. But i do think he caused a lot of the opposing fans getting in by selling a lot of tickets to brokers who sell tixs to anyone.
