    49ers are practicing at the Saints facility in Metairie, not in the Dome.......both team will get a walk through at the Dome on Friday. I believe, but you might want to check that.

    This will just add to the already large chip on their shoulders.

    The picture doesn't show it converted, but it's not a bad field.

    The website just posted images of the facilities, and they really aren't all that bad albeit a very small locker room. The field turf is astro too.

    I doubt it's up to the Ravens to arrange a practice facility. I assume as part of the package of awarding the Super Bowl to a host city, the city has to guarantee it has access to two practice facilities during Super Bowl week, and in all likelihood, show the NFL proof that it has locked in those facilities (by lease or whatever) for that time period. So whoever the AFC team was, that's where they would have had to go.

    It is pretty bush league though, for a host city to be awarded a Super Bowl despite lacking two relatively equal practice facilities worthy of the event.

    That locker room looks like a sardine can compared to the Ravens home. I mean youre looking at a ton of guys that are over
    over 6' weighing over 300 lbs. They will be like sardines in a can but here are pics of the Saints facilities where 49ers roam.

    Compare Saints facility to the Ravens home facility which is larger and nicer, one of the best in NFL. Jets opened a new
    one recently that cost them $75M and has 4.5 practice fields and even a larger indoor facility. Rex fell into something good
    there but this time next week the Castle will add another trophy next to the one in their indoor facility.

    +1 ... and they know several years ahead of time where the Super Bowl will be played. For a multi-billion dollar business like the NFL to have one team practicing indoors at a professional locale, and the other outdoors on a converted baseball field (correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it's only 80 yards long) is shocking...

    Unless the center field wall is less than 300 feet then no it has to have a 100 Yards in it. 1 yard = 3 feet. It

    Holy Sheet just saw the report where they are only using the outfield. In this case it may be less than 100 yards. The NFL should be fucking ashamed!!!

    Its 80 yards long, and it hasn't got the surface that the Dome has, which is what the Saints practice on.
    They practice on the same surface that the game will be played on.
    Meanwhile, we are stuck in a small baseball locker-room?
    Seriously, this is bush league crap that the NFL is pulling here.
    At the Super Bowl you want to go all out to reward the players.......so hopefully Bisciotti is doing other things to make up for this.
