The Washington Commanders underwent a complete name and uniform change this offseason, which garnered a mix of positive and negative reviews across the NFL world.

It appears that they may not be done there, as reports emerged on Monday that the organization has just purchased around 200 acres of land to potentially build a new stadium.

The team currently plays at FedEx Field in Prince George’s County in Maryland, but this move would have them in Virginia, moving even further away from their namesake of Washington D.C.

Many Commanders fans took to social media, expressing their displeasure of this potential move considering how many of them live around the Washington area.

Others are noticing that this move could greatly affect an already extremely populated area in terms of traffic on I-95, the highway that connects that area of Virginia to the D.C. area.

While there were at least some people who seemed to be in favor of the new name change and uniform change, it appears that the overwhelming majority of people who live in that area are extremely against this move.

Nothing is official quite yet, there have only been reports that the organization has bought land in that area, but it seems like someone who is going to buy around 200 acres of land would likely want it to be for a new stadium.

The Commanders’ organization just has not been able to do anything right under Dan Snyder, who is reportedly getting closer and closer to potentially being removed as owner in Washington via a vote from his fellow NFL owners.

Regardless, fans would be happy no matter where the stadium is if the team was winning, which it really hasn’t done in any sustained fashion in quite some time.
