Richmond officials -- answering questions about the Redskins' plans to hold training camp in the city -- faced an often skeptical crowd Thursday night at the Science Museum of Virginia, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. 

Here's a link to the story at timesdispatch.com and a glimpse at what happened, per the T-D:

"In an upstairs theater at the museum, members of a crowd of about 50 grilled city officials on the project's financing, its economic impact, traffic and noise, the site selection process, a perceived lack of transparency and the merits of essentially transferring a valuable piece of city property to Bon Secours Virginia Health System, the chief sponsor of the training camp, as part of the arrangement.

"The Redskins have committed to hold their three-week training camp in Richmond for at least eight years starting next summer as part of an economic incentive deal signed with the state in June."
