From the Post: "More than midway through the baseball season, the Washington Nationals' owners have failed to pay $3.5 million in rent for the District's new ballpark, contending that the state-of-the-art stadium is still incomplete. Besides withholding rent, the team is demanding damages of $100,000 a day, dating from March 1. The team and the city are also at odds over the timing of sales tax payments on tickets, with the Nationals paying game-by-game and the city wanting tax revenue from pre-sold ticket packages upfront." The dispute will be going to arbitration.
UPDATE: Here's some additional details from Tim Lemke's blog at the WashTimes, including how Mayor Fenty reacted in it'll-all-work-out fashion today on WTOP. Ditto from the Post's DC Wire.

The Lerners are diobolically cheap. If they're not careful, they will destroy all good will and drive the team into the ground...

I wonder what the Lerners would do if you were renting a concert hall from them and averaging almost 30,000 for 50 dates and refused to pay them rent like this? When you squeeze all the blood out of a turnip, you will have a dead beet.


Dale says: (7/11/08 11:05 AM)
The fans should sue the Lerners for fielding such a lousy baseball team. Evict the Nationals and send them back to RFK and let D.C. United move into the new stadium.

Soccer? Ewww. I don't think the Lerners are cheap, but I think they are wrong on this one. What's not done? Team offices? That lousy eye-sore called Florida Rock? Well, the team isn't "done" either. The "plan" is in its early stages.

Withholding rent? That always works.

Lets kick the Nats out and invite a minor league team...


BBC says: (7/13/08 1:48 AM)
The dispute is quite unfortunate. However, I am not ready to say it is all the Nat's fault. The DC city council has a notorious history. When Gray tried to bully the team into hanging political (taxation without representation) posters on the ballpark, that made me cringe. I hope that this dispute is something minor setback that has been blown way out of proportion. Blowing minor negative things out of proportion is what the news media is all about.
