How far in SE do you want to go to find open land for all facilities?

If they tore down city stadium you can fit some fields and small facilities in that "block" from what I recall... perhaps MCV would just house the dorms and film rooms.. shuttle to the fields

Will less fans show up to training camp now that it will be in Richmond?

Quite the reverse. Your gonna see a ton of fans from southern Va and the tidewater area coming into richmond for camp. I went to a couple BBQs over the weekend, it was the top thing being talked about.

Even though I'm moving just across the border into NC, I'll definitely try to see if I can make it to training camp next year!

Richmond is an amazing town with some pretty great ways to pass a weekend; this will only add to it. This was a nice move, and I'm really looking forward to getting there sometime soon!

I'll definitely be up for it. Have you heard any more about the locations, the City Stadium is a wreck, U of R is out, not sure where the facilities are without MAJOR renovations.

Re: Redskins Officially Announce Training Camp Move to Richmond/Ashburn Renovations

Could Redskins move bring football to VCU? - NBC12.com-Richmond, VA News, Weather, Traffic & Sports

^ Probably only interesting to VCU fans. But it turns out RG3's grandma Juley Allen lives down here. I had no idea he had VA roots. I know his dad's roots are New Orleans, anyone know if his mom's are VA?

Pretty sure his grandmother just happened to move there about a decade ago, but no roots there.

Have they released any details for the planned renovations? I'm curious to see what they have in mind.

They have reasons for it. Maybe the best for the team.

They didnt say on the news where the camp would actually take place. They showed a couple of dumpy stadiums in Richmond which look like they will need a bunch of renovation before hosting the Skins. I remember all the controversy with the field condition at Carlisle, hopefully this will be better and nobody gets hurt.
Not if you live in Richmond! I think the idea is to spread the Redskins brand to different areas other than DMV. I know I am biased since I live in Richmond but I like the idea of spreading out, not necessarily to Richmond, but in general. Smart move business-wise if you ask me.
