District, Nats Near Agreement on Stadium Rent Dispute

Acting D.C. Attorney General Peter Nickles said tonight that he is on the verge an agreement with the Washington Nationals in which the team would pay $3.5 million in rent for the ballpark that it has refused to pay since the spring. In exchange, the District would seek extended warranties to cover repairs on the ballpark, Nickles said. Nickles said the agreement could be finalized tonight.

It is shameful that the Lerners have waited this long. This is a very large reason that the team has not recruited the fan base it needs. Can you imagine a more inopportune time to alienate residents than your inaugural season and new start at nationals park?

Will the Nats refund ticket holders for a stadium that was not substantially complete?
Of course not.
The stadium is great, the owners not so much.
