With the arrival of the Ravens followed by the demolition of Memorial stadium, it seemed that CFL football was dead in the state of Maryland...until now.
Call the people at Ripley's cause believe it or not the Washington Redskins are rumoured to be eying a move back into the DC area. DC officials have offered to build the Skins a new home on the site of the soon to be torn down RFK Stadium. This would require the Skins to vacate their current home FedEx Field which is a whopping 10 years old! That would leave the 90,000 seat venue without a major tenant.
Now, keep in mind A LOT has to happen before this becomes a reality. But even THE IDEA of abandoning a quarter BILLION dollar facility that is barely a decade old is outrageous. (Hamilton take note, 77 years and counting)
Nevermind Miller Park in Milwaukee, how about an empty state of the art football facility, and a former site of a former CFL franchise Baltimore an hour away.
