Commanders have new owners

If the Washington Commanders went 0-17 this season, it would still be a victory due to the ownership change. Exorcizing this franchise of Dan Snyder is the greatest thing to happen to the team since its Super Bowl win in 1992.

A lot of fans are grumbling about the current state of the franchise and the lack of movement by Josh Harris to get rid of Ron Rivera and Jack Del Rio. FedEx Field continues to be a joke, with both teams having no hot water after the Week 11 loss to the Giants. And Magic Johnson's robotic tweets about the poor play on the field without any changes happening don't help the cause.

To be fair, look at what Harris had to start with. Snyder dug this franchise so far into the ground that it is going to be an uphill battle to get anywhere close to how respectable it was in the late 80's and early 90's.

Not to be cliche, but Rome wasn't built in a day. Turnarounds take time and although this year seems to be a waste, fans have to know in their heart change is coming.
