Bills new workout facility

Why would they build something like this if they are going to build a new stadium 

 

(I think it's awesome) just questioning the investment in a final life stadium

Many teams have Practice facilities and Admin HQ separate from game day stadium.  Bears, Browns, Redskins, Jets, come to mind immediately.

Do they have Celliant/Infrared sheets/bedding in the sleep chambers to help with recovery?

While this would seem practical, it has some downsides. The Orchard Park location is far flung for many out of towners anttending the games, and even those in the heavily populated northtowns. There are few local businesses in the area to pick up extra customers on gamedays. Pretty much an economic wasteland in the general area around NEF. The stadium location has never been very good, and a new stadium there doesn’t change anything in that department. 

Say goodbye to training camp in Pittsford.

Abusing your body with substances is manly? Lol.

 

I’m sure these modern day fellas are fueled by pure carbs and water.

It's pretty clear that even if a downtown stadium is built, the facilities and offices(indoor practice dome, exercise facilities, offices and ticketing bldg, etc..), the Bills will continue to use this as their home base for everything but game day.

 

We now have by far the best athletic performance facility in the NFL and one of the best ones anywhere in the world. I doubt Free Agents are going to be saying"I don't want to come to Buffalo" anymore after seeing that...I know Cole Beasley didn't...he specifically mentioned this as one of the ways Bufalo "takes a dump on" Dallas.

Good call.  Just a matter of time.  Now that Russ Brandon is gone.  

 

Though Kim Pegula grew up in Fairport.

Yeah, Kim being from Fairport is what likely keeps it in Rochester.  But anything can happen.

What?  I can't even say how much I disagree with almost everything you said here.  Far flung location?  Really?  I'm an out of town season ticket holder for going on 20 years, and the current location, not being in a downtown area, is the best part of New Era Field.  Downtown stadiums suck.  The parking sucks.  The tailgating sucks.  The price gouging sucks.  And the traffic patterns almost always suck.  If you are within an hour drive of an NFL Stadium, you aren't far away.  Period.  The location isn't far flung, by any stretch of the imagination.

 

The few local business part I can agree.  Howvever, who cares?  Have you ever been to downtown stadiums where all of the bars, shops, or whatever, that are adjacent to the venue are wall to wall people with nowhere to sit, or even move inside?  They suck.  The prices suck.  The service sucks.  Trying to pay your damn bill or eat, most of the time sucks.  No thanks.  Places like Indianapolis, Charlotte, etc all feel antiseptic and way too clean on Gameday.  It's more of a going to a mall feel, than a football game.  You can have that crap.

 

The stadium location right now is terrific.  The Bills are going to shoot themselves in the foot by going downtown, if they do.  Downtown stadiums suck.  The entire scene for a downtown stadium becomes antiseptic, dull, and everything becomes overpriced and fake.

 

No thanks!

I remember this from over last summer.  Could really go either way honestly.  Not sure why they would limit their product to just Buffalo and remove Rochester/Syracuse.

Also: Bears in Halas Hall in Lake Forest and Cowboys in Frisco.

It is over an hour from Soldier Field. Similar time from Cowboys Frisco training to Jerry's Place Stadium.

Good think Kroft and Eiffert never talked to each other when on Bengals together for those 4 short years.      lol

Also Chris Brown did that Q&A thing and said McDermott said over half the players are already in Buffalo.

Glad Beane didn't lose a finger at the hands of Kim at the 0:44 second mark.

True, but doesn’t need that finger to GM the team.  Now, McDermott...

....yes she did.....as did Brandon's wife......would be an asinine move to dump Fisher and alienate fans from Rochester and east/southeast..............

If I remember the in depth Bills’ business plan that a previous poster slipped to me correctly, this renovation/construction is referred to as “Phase 1 Step 5: Moving To Batavia”.

Looks impressive. They also added a new weight room off of the visitor's locker room (in keeping with it's league-wide rep):
