Totally unfair to my parlay betting against the covid ravaged teams

correction: game being pushed to "to" Tuesday, not after.  Raiders-Browns delayed until Monday, Rams-Seahawks will also be on Tuesday.

Bad news: you have to take Snyder to your side of the Potomac, too.

No sale. It needs to stay at Raljohn

WFT hq is already in Virginia

I really wish they’d figure out a way to put a new stadium on the rfk site where it belongs.

Sounds like he knows how popular he is in Nova and is trying to get the rest of the state to foist a white elephant on us

Yeah, but Danny Boy lives in Maryland.

But I agree that the stadium should be near Nats Park and Audi Field.

VFT?

This was brought up on FM-106.7 yesterday and the sites that were brought up were in Loudoun and Prince William counties. I just can't see that working - they'd lose a lot of fans in DC and the Maryland burbs to the Ravens (who, remember, back in 2019 ran ads on DC-area sports stations for season tickets).

well, in terms of attendance, those folks hhave had Ravens tickets for years. Football is an all day game day, so I think the sph damage won't be detectable. There's a trade off, and that part of VA is growing. The tv and news oulet fans aren't inconvenienced. Best site still would be old RFK.

Did they provide any specific location possibilities?

I don’t know about now, but it appears that the land by the quarry near the CIT building that was under consideration for a baseball stadium might be a contender. It has access to the toll road, 28, and it is near Metro now (Innovation Center Metro station), so one would guess that they would still eye that.

update - others are posting on twitter that they are seeing poor picture quality as well.

and poor throwing quality by Heineke.
