OT: Redskins moving TC...AWAY from facility, to Richmond, VA in 2013
This is interesting. The same year we made the decision to get away from the "remote camp" idea around TC, the Redskins are going to move their camp FROM their training facility to Richmond, VA starting next year.

“When I think of a Baltimore Raven - we go in there, we take your lunch box, we take your sandwich, we take your juice box, we take your applesauce, and we take your spork and we break it. And we leave you with an empty lunch. That’s the Baltimore Raven way.” - Steve Smith Sr.
