Those are facts!!!! While I personally don't want them to move that far away, I understand from a business standpoint (if you're building a casino) why you would make that move. And this whole thing about Metro needing to be there is crazy, if you've been to FedEx majority of the people have been driving there in the past few years, trains have not been packed with WFT fans!!!! That's not a fact at all. Levi stadium is 42 miles from SF. Dulles is 28 miles from DC. And I have been going to games the last couple years, even went to the Tampa game this year, have you been taking the metro? Morgan Boulevard Station is closet to the stadium next to Largo Town Center, there's typically so many people on the platform at Morgan when leaving the game that it makes me uncomfortable, a sudden bum rush and folks are getting pushed into the tracks, it's like rush hour near Gallery Place pre-COVID. There is a conga line of folks leaving the stadium every daytime home game heading to the metro, I don't have the numbers to show driving vs metro, but saying the trains are not packed is simply not true. What is true is they are not all WFT fans, and the ugly truth is that's what Synder is going to factor into his decision on where to put the stadium, can fans get their period, not jus his team's fans. Anyway, despite all its faults, DC metro is one of the best subway systems in the country. Not utilizing it for the fan base would be maddening, it's already bad enough the team can't keep the damn thing open for night games.
