When I see friends from growing up, it used to be (as recently as five years ago) we were all Redskins fans and we'd discuss the usual fan shit like how the various rookies are developing and the need for another pass rusher, etc. Nowadays, it's an even split between the people who have given up on the team and those who are still hanging on, and the discussion is just "why are you still doing this?" Even the die hard fans acknowledge that there is no reason for hope, the team will be terrible as long as Snyder is there, and there's a real possibility Snyder will own the team for another 20-30 years. It's just some people are totally committed to their abusive relationship. With that as the general temperature of the room, it's no surprise that ratings are tanking. Yeah if they lost me and you, I mean who is left? Think we were both among the leading edge in terms of how passionate we were about that team. Being in Denver, I used to meet up with a bunch of Redskin fans at a bar to watch every week and I know it's still going on but have to imagine the numbers have dwindled significantly. I wouldn't know though. I stay home and watch RZ channel and my Sundays have been infinitely more enjoyable. And I think they're nuts for sticking with it. I feel like I was crazy enough to have stuck with the team as long as I did. Abusive relationship is right. Fool me 25 times, shame on you...fool me 26 times....
