A deal to bring a new stadium for the Potomac Nationals to Woodbridge may not be dead and buried quite yet, but supporters and detractors alike are certainly throwing dirt on its grave.Stadium boosters like Prince William Board of County Supervisors Chairman Corey Stewart have declared the proposed $35-million project “pretty close to dead” after team owner Art Silber pulled the matter from the board’s consideration ahead of a planned vote July 18.The deal’s opponents — like Supervisors Pete Candland, R-Gainesville, and Jeanine Lawson, R-Brentsville — are similarly pessimistic on its prospects, with both declaring the arrangement definitively “dead.” Silber himself says he’s putting his focus on the “overwhelming” number of inquiries he’s received from other localities interested in luring the P-Nats away from Prince William rather than continuing the negotiations.

Supervisor Frank Principi, D-Woodbridge, seems to be the lone voice of optimism on the subject, asserting that the deal is “by no means dead” and pledging to continue the negotiations to bring the new stadium to a site near Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center. But the complex deal, more than a year in the making, now seems seriously imperiled in the very week that supervisors were originally set to lend it their final approval.
