It could still be one of several other locations under consideration if all the details can be worked out. Loved it when camp was held in Carlisle, really miss going up there.

i was initially bummed about this news. after a little thought, there has already been so much change since the Zorn era, i dont think its absolutely necessary to head out of town. on the selfish side, it will be a much shorter drive for me.

Well, I guess we will suck for at least another year.

I firgure snyder let everyone know that ashburn makes too much money for him. Maybe he'll build some dorms on the property.

This is at least part of the reason that the Skins have been mediocre for Snyder's entire tenure.

I don't think where you have camp is nearly as important as the work that you do, regardless of where you are.

I kind of see your point, but at the same time I don't really understand that argument. The Patriots hold training camp basically next door to Gillette Stadium, the Eagles hold training camp just an hour outside of Philly at Lehigh U., Steelers hold training camp less than an hour outside of Pittsburgh. Doesn't seem to affect those teams much

Eagles and Steelers are still away together at a college though...if the skins went to a college an hour from DC that would still be an improvement from the Ashburn circus. I guess the Pats make your point though that you can stay home and still be good.

you ever drove from ashburn to dc?

it's an hour! that being said a lot of guys live nearby

as long as shanahan isn't sending everyone home to sleep on their tempurpedic and eat mcdonald's they'll have plenty of time to bond

That's their home facility though. I still believe in going to a college and roughing it in a dorm room with less distractions. And the Redskins are not really in DC...technically they should be going an hour from Ashburn to get away.

Carlisle was perfect becasue it was not that far from DC but it was far enough that it was not Redskins country anymore so they had minimal distractions. Some days got crowded at the field when there were bus trips scheduled from DC but for the most part the town itself gave them thier space.
