I'm sure he does but as was said before JKC locked that place up tight for a while in PG county.Between infrastucture deals and tax deals with the county and the state I think (not sure) it might be another tenyears before Snyder can move the team without it costing him a fortune

A Little history on Fed Ex,the lease is up in 2027.

Not happening.
Yeah, if the name of the team changed it would have happened a very long time ago. And most people are okay with the Redskins name. I for one feel the name of the team should be changed to that of one of the long standing native tribes, but I don't truly see what difference it makes.....

I dont have a problem one way or the other with the name but I still say people arent really ok with the name. There's a letter to the editor in today's Wash Post suggesting the name be changed.

It would be nice if the team had two names. I don't see why the team can't be called the Redskins and the Cheyene. Or the Redskins and the Apache. Or the Redskins and the Cherokee. Or the Redskins and the Sioux. Just saying.

Re: Field Condition

Two names?

I'm not sure that naming the team after a specific tribe is going to help things any.

I am missing your point...
An example of a potential name would be....Cherokee Redskins?
Or Sioux Redskins?

I agree, two names wont help or change anything.

What exactly are you suggesting? One non-"offensive" BS name for home games so we can bow down to the idiot mayor and political correctness and then use the name "Redskins" on the road when not playing in a town run by a mayor who wants to ruin everyone's football fun?


Back to the topic...we all know the field was in horrible condition, but would we and the media even be talking about it if Robert Griffin's already-injured knee hadn't been hurt again in this game? If he had made it through the game healthy and led us to victory, would he be in the news and would this thread had gone past 10 posts of "yeah, I noticed that too, but that's football!".

The media wouldn't care about Chris Clemons' knee.


So yeah, the field was bad and I'm sure it will be fixed now to protect Snyder's investment in RGIII. It seems like EVERYTHING is a controversy for us these days...our QB, our field, our name...gee, it's great to have media attention now, isn't it?

Maybe the whining will stop when we win the Lombardi next season.

Re: Field Condition

Is the field in a low spot or something where there is bad drainage? Can they dig it up, put down, gravel, sand, sod and just make it drain better? I know a lot of fields these days are crowned so that the water runs off. I don't have answers, I'm just asking questions. By the way, can any of these local news guys in Washington just go ask the FEX-X field crew what the problem is directly? Or are they off limits because it would embarrase Dan Snyder? This has Washington Post news story written all over it to me.
