Because of the Redskins, Washington should’ve never of had a USFL franchise. Neither should have Tampa, because of the Buccaneers, which was just one of the problems with the USFL. Two many duel market teams competing with the NFL for fans when they should’ve been trying to develop their own fan base. Back in 1984, Florida already had Orlando and Jacksonville as far as USFL franchises. They didn’t need to be in Tampa as well, which wasn’t a proven NFL market yet with the Buccaneers struggling. So putting another pro football franchise there was a mistake. And Maryland had the Baltimore Stars in the USFL, after the Colts moved to Indianapolis. Plus the Redskins in Washington for Maryland NFL fans. So the USFL had no business in Washington or Tampa. Other than wanting to have a club in a big market like Washington.
