Im sure you’re right but non residents didn’t know that in the 80s. This is all pre trip advisor and hotels.com. At least that’s my viewpoint from out west.

That and the value of NFL teams continue to rise at a fast pace. Snyder bought the Redskins and Fedex Field for $800 million 20 years ago, Forbes had the Redskins valued at $3.1 Billion 2 years ago. In spite of Snyder's bumbling that ranked them the 4th most valuable NFL team.

Nice qualifier.



Just playing devil's advocate here, I'm gonna say the Redskins are an afterthought in DC sports already. The Wizards are only in the same boat because they're still in a hangover from the Grunfeld era. It's gonna take a while to get them out of hole they're in, but at least they have hope. We have none. Only the diehards remain.


This. Ill take it a step further, they have been an afterthought for a long time. This would have been a solid thread about 10 years ago.

Maybe we need to get some sort of organized blackout going, like spread the word via social media to do a #redskinsblackout every weekend until bruce is fired. Imagine if we got that trending on twitter. Imagine if local ratings tanked so much (even beyond what they've already tanked) that Dan was forced to take notice.

This article is the absolute truth. Boswell perfectly articulated some of the reasons I can't stand Snyder and his minions. Such as:

"The prestige and status of the Washington Redskins within the D.C. area reached their absolute bottom — the lowest point in the existence of the franchise in this city since 1937 — on Sunday at FedEx Field.

Over the past 18 months, a trend, many years in the making, has turned into a stunning transformation. Washington has discovered that champions can live here. So why tolerate, let alone support, an atrociously run and constantly embarrassing franchise with a moral compass that is as twisted as a corkscrew?

It took Washington owner Daniel Snyder 20 years to carve a trap door under his own franchise. Like a character in a cartoon, he has been sawing a circle in the floor around himself — with the billionaire the last person to know he was the one who would drop through the hole.

In recent weeks, seven-time Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams has become the latest symbol of the region’s disgust with Snyder’s ownership, an inept decade under team president Bruce Allen and a general petty ugliness with which the team treats everyone.

Year after year, it is the Redskins’ pattern — and perhaps their policy — never to admit that anything is wrong and always to say that they are “close.” That is always the word — coaching regime after regime. They hardly ever are. It’s self-delusion and marketed to suckers.

This team has dominated Washington sports conversation for so long, it’s hard to believe it can veer so amazingly close to irrelevance, parody and pity — for its remaining fans.

Mark the moment in D.C. history. Long time coming — and deserved, one defeat and misdeed at a time. But the crash, when it came, happened fast. Washington, owned by a pro football team year-round — that’s over now."

Re: Redskins May Become An Afterthought IN D.C. Sports Soon

The only hope we have is to root for this team to continue to go down until snyder sells the team .... as long as he is owner this is what we have .. we ain’t hit bottom yet, I can see this team not winning a game for rest of this year and maybe most of next.. and watch the crap show of a head coach search we will go on.. under Bruce’s leadership and great culture .. the fact that he says the culture is good is a complete disconnect to reality ...what is the lowest attendance record in modern history to a game .
