"I think that would be a good start," Ryan said.
While Ryan is being flippant, the Fifth Amendment's public use clause does allow for private property to "be taken for public use" with "just compensation." However, it would be impossible for the government to seize the franchise from owner Daniel Snyder by claiming public use even if the on-field play gets worse and worse.
"It's shocking to me," Ryan said of the Redskins current state of affairs.
"It's sad and it's wrong. And, you know, you just wish you could do something about it, but you are powerless as a fan other than, you know, voting with your rear end by putting it somewhere other than in the stadium. It's too bad and it shouldn't be," Ryan said.
"It's embarrassing," Ryan said, "But, I don't know, maybe (Snyder's) beyond embarrassment."
