Washington Redskins Fan BlogBy Peter Simon
The Redskins, my beloved Washington Redskins! This is the team that has a history of putting their fans through the ringer. This is a team that certainly knows how to keep their fans on the edge of their seats. They have been doing this for years and it doesn't look as if they are about to stop anytime soon.
The Redskins have always had a very special place in the hearts of their fans. The record breaking attendance figures are a testament to that. They bring in more revenue than most teams over the course of the regular season. Not only that, but the Redskins are right up there on the list of teams who bring the most number of fans each match day.
NFLwill certainly be a boring place without them, not that they are going anywhere. They have that element of unpredictability attached to them. This is one facet that sets them apart from almost every other team in the league. Well fans like me at least certainly seem to think so. Call me biased but there isn't a team out there who can upset odds like the Redskins.
There have been periods over the years when I have thought ok now this is the time when the team will really kick on but the team went against my expectations. On other occasions I wasn't too optimistic and they have gone on to surprise me. The bottom line is that for to be a fan of this team you need a heart as strong as a rock.
Expect more of the same when the new season comes calling. Hang on to your hats and get ready for a ride that is for sure going to test you to the hilt all the way from the beginning to the very end of the season.
