Steven Goff wrote a must-read story on D.C. United’s continued problems in crumbling RFK Stadium. The most eye-opening part, though, came in the attached photo gallery, which included pictures from the stadium’s construction, from the Redskins’ glory years, from the Nats’ brief tenure, and from the current state of decay.

The story had this thought from United boss Kevin Payne: Demolishing RFK would not be a small undertaking financially or politically because “many people look at this not so much as a stadium but as a memorial” to Robert F. Kennedy, President John F. Kennedy’s brother who was slain in 1968, Payne said.

If that’s the case, maybe someone should try to keep that memorial from falling apart.
