Come gather round people, wherever you roam, and admit that the D.C. sports waters have grown.
The number for the Redskins? That number stands at 13 percent, down from 2010 when they had a stranglehold on the District's fans with 34 percent of respondents declaring the Skins their favorite team. (The poll was conducted by telephone with a random sample of 905 adults between Nov. 12 and 17 and did not include Maryland or Virginia residents.)
The poll shows the Redskins strongest support group comes from D.C. residents 65 and older: 22 percent name Redskins their top team. Among those 30-39 years old on 11 percent picked the Skins as their favorite team and among the 18-29 age group that number falls to six percent.
The refrain from D.C. sports fans to Snyder hits hard: If the fanbase to you is worth savin' then you better start improvin' or you'll continue to sink like a stone, for the times they are a-changing.
