Washington Redskins fans have been through pretty much every emotion in the last few years - that is apart from the feeling of consistent winning.

During Robert Griffin's rookie season in the NFL, Washington fans were filled with a sense that good times were only just around the corner again.

But then came the realisation that they were one of the worst teams in the NFL, something they have now been for the past two seasons, only winning seven games.

Fans to hate Snyder again

Redskins fans have also been through all of the bad press to do with their nickname, with many fans wanting owner Dan Snyder to drop the name.

But Snyder is much more interested in planning on doing other things, such as building a new stadium. And in a move that will likely frustrate Washington fans, Snyder is said to be ready to give the go ahead to a stadium with a much lower capacity than the Redskins' current one.

“Whether it’s here, wherever it is — is going to be a more intimate stadium,” Allen said, via Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post, ProFootballTalk reported. “It’s going to be closer to what RFK is.

“That’s Dan’s vision. He grew up at RFK Stadium, going to the games. And, as you know, that was 53,000 fans. And if we’re going to have loyal people.

"Forget the person who just wants to come for a game or two. You can lose that customer. Bring the people who bleed burgundy and gold. And we want exactly what you want, and I feel your passion for it. We want those people in our stadium. We don’t want to sell it to the Eagles and the Giants fans.”

Bad news

The reason this could be bad news for Redskins fans is because less fans will be able to attend, and those that do will have to pay even more.
