1. As a resident of Loudoun County, I'm glad they did it

 

Training camp and practice is held 2 miles from my office. We get the money from people coming into the county to watch, we get the money from parents bringing the kids to the local camps, hosted by the County and involving the redskins. Many of them are active in local charities, support local businesses and many have even opened local businesses. Ladell Betts, recently opened a children's camp and gym facility that works in tandem with another former Redskin's facility that caters to HS aged kids.
These guys chose to stay in the county after their tenure with the team ended.

I can see the benefits of having the team here, first hand. Does Snyder need the money, no....but the county does better when you have a bunch of millionaires out spending their money locally and doing things within the community.
