You are correct. I was talking to someone who directs a race near Hagerstown MD and they told me the police who directed traffic at intersections and other spots on the race route were getting $80 per hours. I was stunned, that's a lot of money to stand around or sit in their car. They have now rerouted the course to minimize/eliminate the need for these police and save a lot of $. Most runners think they are volunteers and that's the farthest thing from the truth.

Especially with these new stadiums - they're built as part of multi-plex arrangements with retail/event complexes that bring in revenue the other days of the year. I don't think RFK has nearly that much space.

It doesn't. And the neighborhood would never go for a complex like that.

It could, IF they also captured the land from the DC armory. It is essentially a multi-use complex today for car shows, gun shows etc. That could be incorporated to a totally new stadium complex. It could rival what they have done with the Nationals Park area.

It is used for car shows and things like that but it is a military facility and I doubt the DC National Guard/US Govt is going to give up any of that land.

The watering holes of Capitol Hill are in staggering distance. Back in the day, we would leave RFK and celebrate at places like the Tune Inn.

When's the last time you were in that area ? There is a whole slew of great place's right around there and up along Pennsylvania Ave and along Cap Hill.

Re: The stadium thread 2: New stadium boogaloo

WASHINGTON — In what could be a major blow to plans for a brand-new Washington Commanders stadium in Virginia, state lawmakers are in talks to take hundreds of millions of dollars off the table in its bid to bring the team’s new complex to the Commonwealth.

Multiple sources within the Virginia Legislature tell WUSA9, talks are underway to slash the stadium financing package it plans to offer Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder from one billion to $350 million. That’s a stunning 65% decrease in the amount of money the Commonwealth would pony up to help Snyder build his new Commanders stadium on one of three proposed Northern Virginia sites.

When asked why, one State Senator, who asked not to be identified so that he could speak freely on the issue, said “Public reaction to this project has been underwhelming. With every passing day, it’s evident the team lacks gravity.”

In addition to the challenge of selling tickets, the franchise continues to operate under the cloud of sexual harassment investigations by Congress and the NFL. And with Virginia planning to pay back whatever stadium bonds it sells using future tax revenue from a new stadium, that unnamed State Senator added “a lot of us have concerns that the team has the ability to stay viable for a decade. Or even, five years.”

Yikes ... I dont even think Snyder has the means/capital to finance a new huge stadium mini-city complex without State contribution.

Would someone even "lend" him 1B?

honestly that is good news, i hope the Commanders continue to rot at FEDEX and no one helps DS. Then eventually when all he has is shanty town for a stadium and his biggest sponsor left is Eastern Motors, then hopefully he sells. Its the only way to get rid of him.

He definitely doesn't have that capital. He had to borrow money to buy out his minority owners. I think the disconcerting thing is the state legislature doesn't see a long term viability of the team.
