Redskins near last place again

Posted by: Spence on Thursday, November 8th, 2007

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.
