Tommy Wells rips Redskins relocation efforts

By now, you should have read the A1 story about the efforts by some high-powered D.C. leaders to lure the Redskins back into the District, with a possible training facility near RFK Stadium.

Council Member Tommy Wells, whose ward borders the potential site, is quoted in the story saying he’s “absolutely opposed” to such a plan and would prefer long-discussed plans for a mixed-use development there.

But Wells further articulated his misgivings on his Twitter account Friday morning, objecting to the team’s “racist” name, saying it would be “insulting” to have the team practice in D.C. but play games in Maryland, and asking why nothing has been done to keep D.C. United in the city . That’s a lot to chew on.
