Fans Sues Skins Over Walking Ban: A long-time Washington Redskins fan appears in court today to defend her suit against the team and the owners of FedEx Field over rules that do not allow fans to walk to the stadium. On game days, metal barricades prevent pedestrians from accessing the public streets and sidewalks leading up to the stadium. The plaintiff claims the suit is a conspiracy between the team, stadium and the city to force fans to park in expensive parking lots and take the provided shuttle buses. The team claims the closures are for fan safety.
