Go to their party on December 9th!

I think this may be this is the best summation of the whole Redskins grabbing Foster debacle. 

Now if the Redskins draft The Kap after Colt's injury this week, maybe I'll reconsider my fan status, but probably the meantime, what team should I root for? Thoughts? Should I just drop the NFL altogether?

That's it. I'm out.
