Agreed but not for at least another 10 years.That's how long they have left on the agrement with P.G county( I thought it was a 20 or 25 year deal).With all the moneyPG has spent with infrastucture..the beltway,Metro,and other upgrades....nope not for awhile.
Remember he only bought Fed Ex ...he did'nt build it ,by the time he can build in DC it will cost almost 2 Billion...hell the Giants new place is about 1.75......nope no time soon.

Fenty can't give away any property,money .....belive it or not Danny does'nt have enough right now to buy out of the FedEx deal in PG and build new in DC to keep the majority ownership....Six Flags has 'nt been kind.Will it happen,yeah it will but much futher down the road.

Re: Rfk 2

The effort to build the new stadium will become serious the moment Jerry Jones' new stadium becomes the biggest in the NFL next year. Dan and Jerry maybe good friends, but they are extremely competitive and Dan won't be able to handle Dallas having the bigger stadium....

next season when the giants move,are they taking the jets with them? and is the new stadium going to be in new york or jersey?
The Giants will move in 2010 ,and it's being built in the parking lot ...right next to the Stadium now.The Jets and the Giants are partners in this deal(I don't like it) but they are.
Danny is just a tad over exstended right now as I said Six Flags is killing him and after thids week on wall st who knows who can aford anything?YES it will happen we all know it .....just a little bit down the road ,that's all.

Re: Rfk 2

The big question is how many more yrs do the Skins have on their lease in MD? If it's not long I'm sure a bidding war will begin and that benefits Snyder. If MD is not interested in keeping the Skins which I doubt then DC could put any price on a stadium.

I don't know if you can call it a lease.It was a deal between the 2 to cover infrastucture by the added tax base and the forcast of how long it would take to pay for the things,also what do you do with and empty NFL stadium that holds 90 thoudsand people.The whole complex has been built around that stadium,home values ....nope they can't just pullout.

I agree with you but when Snyder wants something he makes it happen. MD could use it for concerts, DC soccer..United, or any number of other things. They might have to do some reconstruction though.or tear it down and put some thing nice on it like a park for the public or turn it into a mall.LOL.

To big for DC United and there is a brand New Mall across the Beltway(part of the rebuilding of the area) also as part of the original deal there is a sports complex for the kids sitting right be side FedEX.I thought about University of Maryland but they just re did theit stadium am and could not afford to buy anything or keep it up,the Danny would need to sell yet the value is in the Stadium, so you can't tear it down.

True! Last Nats game I attended, a few months back, filled half the stadium. Out of that half, a quarter left before the 7th inning - and the Nats were WINNING! crap like this kills me that skins fans have to schlep out to maryland.

Re: Rfk 2

Let's here on out call the new stadium - Gibbs Field. Sure, it'll have some corporate moniker, but Joe deserves something more than signage in the ring of fame. As someone said before, he needs hometown enshrinement.
