Redskins Stadium 2

The moat around the Redskins’ new stadium in the concept drawings that were recently unveiled has been the butt of jokes from fans. But a closer look reveals what Dan Snyder is looking for in a new stadium, whether the moat comes to fruition or not.

Tandler takes a look on

    The renderings are not final. Snyder has not said that’s what he wants. That’s the firm’s idea so far.

    Dan synder also said the stands will light up in burgundy and gold and that the stands will move like rfk …let’s see if those effects will happen

    If we ever want to host a superbowl, it will have to be a dome

      I disagree. They did one in NYC without a dome. If they build this there will be a Super Bowl here.

        i think the only reason they got one was because of John Mara

    Dome equals year round. If you don’t do a dome you are foolish

    You guys should see what the redskins new stadium was gonna look like before they release these pictures… It looked like a snake… It look way more cool…but I think it was a dome witch Dan synder don’t want…they can have water outside the stadium but what happens when it gets cold ???? Dan synder should think about that

      When it gets cold we’ll salt the moat with Old Bay.

    Get rid of the moat…stupid for our climate.
    Why not use solar energy to power the new stadium?

    The body of water surrounding the stadium would make an ideal urinal trough for some tailgaters.

      nice thought, maybe should put in a flush handle too
