RFK's Halll Of Stars TO Be Removed

Today the Virginia Pilot was saying that the wall of stars is going to be remove from RFK. Its removal is to make room for advertisments to be displayed for the Nationals (I think a baseball team). One of the names mentioned to be removed was Sony Jurgensen and I would have to believe others to be included would be Theisman, Clark, Riggens, just to mention a few. Does anyone know if this Hall Of Stars was recontructed when the new Fedx feild was built and does any body remember this wall? Its a shame to hear this because it must include all of our bigtime players of past memories. Sorry I could not find a link to this story.

Who cares about the Nationals!

Who cares about the Nationals(Expos)?

Not I!

The present home to the Redskins is Fedex Field.

It's actually called the Ring of Fame in RFK. And they have somewhat started it in FedEx Field.


I think they'll eventually probably add all those names you mentioned.

Well I know we've had this same discussion before, but I'll just repost what I had a couple of months ago.

DC today is not the same DC of 30 years ago. For one thing, it's more affluent. There are a lot more big businesses here which means more money and clients for luxury boxes, the most important aspect of any pro stadium. Public transportation wasn't the same 30 years ago either. Now with the Metro train system it's much easier to get around and especially around downtown DC and this has created a broader region because the suburbs (Northern Virginia, Montgomery Co.) can now be considered practically a part of DC itself. And as it was the population has grown significantly anyway.

When the MCI Center was built in DC's Chinatown seven years ago that area was a total dump, but thanks to that stadium a lot of businesses set up shop there and completely revitalized the area and raised its property value. A baseball stadium could do the same for the Waterfront, which has the potential to be beautiful. Several companies have committed to building stores, offices, condos/apartments in that area over the next couple of years with the understanding that people will start coming there to attend baseball games and shop, eat, and even live there. As it is now, anyone who goes there is really just going to one of the clubs there late at night and that's it.

Redskins P! That's OK! You live in D.C! I live in Norfolk! But I never suspected for one minute the Expos would come here to Norfolk anyway!

My favorite BB Team is the Braves, as in "The Land of the Free, and the home of the Braves!" And by the way, is the team you guys will be looking up at in the standings all year long! And most Warpathers probably already have a favorite BB team.
I can see the Braves at least 1-2 nights per week for free, even when traveling because of WTBS being nearly worldwide. Ted, the owner, has his own series of networks! I fall asleep way too easily in front of the screen, however, and then I go to bed!

BB is way, way too boring. But Nationals fans deserve their own talk forum!
Just not in here! The Nats don't even have an owner! MLB still owns them!
BB discussions also do not belong in TheWarpath.net, imho, nor should they have a dedicated thread!

Backrow, I am aware of who the Atlanta Braves are, thank you very much. And don't count on you guys being at the top of the standings. The Mets are going to be way better than you guys.

Yes, most Warpathers do have a favorite BB team. But don't forget that most warpathers are in the DC area, and for the people who live here, they can appreciate that we have a team of our own.

My favorite team is the NY Yankees, but now I have a team in the National league too!

Also, we have an "off-topic" (you know, like not football or redskins?) forum and everyone here is open to discussing anything they want on it. It can be Baseball, Basketball, Hockey....whatever.
