Saints' Training Camp At The Greenbrier Deemed A Success, Could Lead To Longer Deal
Published August 14, 2014
SOME LIKE IT HOT? In Baton Rouge, Ted Lewis writes if there was "skepticism about the benefits of an NFL team moving training camp from its up-to-date (and state-funded) Metairie facility to this five-star resort located in a rural corner of southern West Virginia,” it “quickly dissipated when the players not only discovered the amenities such a place provides, but the extraordinarily cool temperatures.” The Saints “have their own practice facility” back in the suburbs of New Orleans “for when they want to cool off or get out of the rain, but it’s not the same as having a mountain breeze in your face.” Lewis: “While we might admire, and even romanticize enduring preseason drills during a Louisiana summer, the fact remains that teams get more work done when they’re not being drained by the sun or having to think about it” (Baton Rouge ADVOCATE, 8/14).
