SKINS GAME: In DC, Tom Sherwood reported DC city officials have “proposed a unique deal" to Prince George’s County, supporting "an FBI move to Maryland if the Redskins are allowed to break their lease.” DC Council Finance & Revenue Chair Jack Evans said, “Certainly the idea of a switch for the FBI moving to Prince George's County and the Redskins moving back to the city in a brand new stadium at RFK would be something I would certainly be interested in.” But Sherwood reported Prince George's County Exec Rushern Baker’s administration is “not entertaining any discussions around moving” the Redskins back to DC (NBCWASHINGTON.com, 12/7).
BEST NBA VENUES: In L.A., Eric Pincus noted Staples Center was “featured in the November issue of Stadium Journey Magazine as one of the NBA's best arenas.” The arena was featured along with “profiles on the Toyota Center, The Palace and Barclays Center” (LATIMES.com, 12/8).
