Welp, the Redskins lost again Tuesday.
Hogan is moving forward with a plan to acquire the Oxon Cove land in a swap with the U.S. Interior Department, but is doing so without the Redskins in mind.
“Whether or not it’s ever going to be a stadium, I don’t know,” Hogan said at the time. “That’s up to the people in the area to decide. Doesn’t really matter to me one way or the other.”
However, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said Wednesday the RFK site remains the best spot for a new stadium.
Bowser said the team “would have to build its own stadium,” but did not elaborate on whether D.C. would provide the Redskins a free lease or other perks.
"As a DC resident, I don't want to see DC hoodwinked into paying for a billionaire's stadium," the petition read. "The District needs our tax dollars to create new housing at all levels, support local DC entrepreneurs who run small and local business, take urgent steps forward to shift to a 100% clean energy environment, build larger and modern schools for our growing city, fund our Metro system, and in general spend money to make life better and easier for DC residents."
Virginia is another option, but there has been little interest from the state under Governor Ralph Northam.
With options dwindling, the team will remain at FedEx Field, where the Redskins are contractually obligated to play until 2027.
