Redskins waiting list larger than Guam

Northwestern.com reports that the Redskins have the largest wait list in the league as of 2005:

The Packers don't have the largest waiting list in the National Football League. According to 2005 statistics, the Washington Redskins have 175,000 names on their list and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have 115,000 names.
Hail to being numero uno in something. Also, in the 2000 census the U.S. Territory of Guam tipped the scales at a paltry 154,805 now estimated around 175,000. Tampa Bay's 115,000 wait list compares favorably to (pffft) Tonga or (oh big deal) Federated States of Micronesia. Per this, FedEx field seats 80,116 (feels low?) which means we could fit the entire population of both Greenland and the British Virgin Islands into a game and still have enough room for hot dog vendors.
