  1. Putting training camp in Richmond seems like a small thing but it also seems extremely dumb. It dangerous enough to have 300lb men working out in the brutal heat of July and August so moving an additional 100 miles south doesn’t really help. Wouldn’t it make more sense to start out a couple hundred miles north where the temps might be a little less dangerous?

  2. it’s just as damn hot in Ashburn as it is in Richmond.

    look at it this way; the move reinforces that southern Va/Northern NC Skins’ fan base, reduces operational costs, and gets the team/players away from the DC night life.
