    Apologies in advance to any Native Americans in the forum for my joke...

    Of the 12 franchises in the four sports to see the biggest decline in attendance, four were NFL teams.

    Washington saw the biggest attendance decline among NFL franchises, ranking fifth with a 31.1 percent drop in average attendance, according to 24/7 Wall St.

    The team led the NFL in average attendance in 2008, with 88,604 fans packing FedEx Field that season. In 2018, Washington averaged 61,028 fans, a decline of 31.1 percent.

    Washington was the only NFL team that failed to fill at least three-quarters of seats in its stadium last season, per the website.


    Four NFL teams have lost significant numbers of fans in last decade

    A lot of the Skins fans are nice guys and I feel bad for them, as a fan who endured my share of bad owners and losing teams. But I can't imagine rooting for a Danny Snyder owned team. I have never had to do anything that bad as a sports fan. The only thing maybe worse would be rooting for the Knicks nowadays.

    I think sucking balls on the field for this many years will drive any fan base away

    Getting rid of Cousins is one thing they did right. But they sure paid him a lot before doing it.

    I'm a old school guy, but I think that scrambling Quarterbacks are a hit and miss prospect.

    Nothing against Haskins but if they don't make the playoffs in the next 4 years then they need 10 years to fix it.
