Save the money and just build the new stadium in the heart of Skins country, Richmond Va

Only seems fair to get part of that $36M back in some way.

When does FedEx field contract last to-2025? New renovations would be nice. Is it necessary or take what you can get and never turn down free money?

Half-related question: Why does FedEx Field not have a roof? Im not talking dome here, just a roof for the fans and open air for the players.

Is that a typical american thing? Open or dome? Cause here in Germany you mostly have roof for the stands, open above the field and Im pretty used to it. Its also quite good for getting loud.

^ It's called shared revenue.

Something that works quite well for the league.

And if I'm reading [URL="http://www.csnwashington.com/football-washington-redskins/talk/fedex-field-will-receive-27-million-renovations"]this article [/URL]correctly, the team isn't really getting money, per se, the FO just will get to keep more of their own revenue.

[quote]To pay for the renovation, the Redskins will receive a waiver of the premium seating revenue it normally pays to the league and other teams. [/quote]

The renovations aren't going to change anything. Fed Ex is just terrible. Put the stadium back into DC where it belongs. Tear down RFK and rebuild it.

[quote=CultBrennan59;1031496]Maybe they can improve the fan experience with that money, or put it towards more security.

I've heard too many stories like these from fans before. Although the thing I disagree with the author is bringing his toddler to the game. No kids under 8 should be at an NFL game IMO.[/quote]


i WENT TO THE RAMS SKINS GAME LAST YR AND I HAD A BLAST AND THE FANS WERE REALLY CLASSY.. I guess it just depends on week to week though
