Josh Harris wants Commanders stadium to strike fear
It's been a baptism of fire for Josh Harris' ownership group in recent months. The Washington Commanders haven't exactly thrived on the field, but the pieces are slowly coming together away from the gridiron as part of the new regime's plans to turn this storied organization into an industry leader once again.
One of the biggest remaining riddles centers on a new stadium. Discussions are ongoing, but Harris stated via Nicki Jhabvala from the Washington Post his desire to provide a venue that's feared around the league once again. Something FedEx Field never truly provided thanks in no small part to the team's failings under Dan Snyder.
"Obviously RFK was a place where the opposing team didn't want to play, so we had an extra man on the field. … It was an edge, right? So, how you create an edge for your team is an important way to think about it. Having a stadium that is accessible to the DMV at large, the best we can manage that, is important."- Josh Harris via X/Twitter
It'll be interesting to see where the Commanders decide to locate this lavish new venue. The sentimentalist fans want a return to the RFK Stadium site - which is entirely understandable - but Maryland and Virginia are also making strong plays thanks to the economic benefits that would arrive.
Watch this space, I guess…
