Redskins near last place again
No, not in the standings. Not yet, at least. No, this time it is for the overall experience at Fed Ex Field. From Sports Illustrated:
When fans are left with the impression the owner “would charge you for the oxygen you breathe during a game if only he could regulate it,” that “going to a Redskins game is as much fun as a dentist appointment” and that “unless there is a master plan to bring the team back to the friendly confines of RFK, you’re better off just catching the game on television.” It’s clear there’s some deep-seated discontent flowing beneath the 90,000-plus seats at FedEx Field.
I can’t disagree with that. Fed Ex is certainly not nearly as much fun as RFK was — and RFK was a complete dump. Fed Ex is a drab, overpriced building, half-filled with real fans and half-filled with phonies — each paying a lot more than they should to enter the place.
