Washington Examiner writer Rick Snider offers his opinion as the why the Redskins training camp hasn’t been drawing large attendance numbers since it’s start last Thursday.

The Junkies claim that people have lost their zeal for the team after a lack of success during the Dan Snyder era.  Callers reiterated that average, non die-hard fan won’t make the trek to Ashburn if there isn’t a winning product to cheer for.

Snider claims last year at this time Skins would get between 1,500 and 2,000 fans to watch practice.  Now, there’s only a couple hundred.

He also thinks the lockout had a lot to do with the lack of turnout.

“The lockout ended and people really weren’t quite positive when practices were and, you know, have to get off work.  So now they’re knowing after yesterday’s, everybody going  ‘Where  are you?” They kind of said, “I guess we can go now.”
