Three months ago, six council members revealed a plan for a sports and entertainment complex in D.C. The plan examines "to see whether or not it makes sense to develop a 100,000-seat RFK domed stadium complex," said D.C. Council member Vincent B. Orange.
Other people involved have a different idea for the stadium; 75,000 seats and a retractable roof. Meanwhile, FedExField, the Redskins' current stadium, consists of 85,000 seats.
Mayoral candidate Jack Evans also shared his thoughts on the proposal.
"I would love to see a new stadium on the site where RFK currently exists," Evans said. "The transportation, the subway, the road system, the parking, everything is there for a football stadium."
Also under the plan, the DC Armory would be remodeled into a sound stage while the Langston Golf Course would become a PGA Championship golf course. Council members say the improvements would make the city a feasible option to host Super Bowls, golf tournaments and perhaps the Olympics.
