Bills new workout facility

Recommended Posts

It looks like a planet fitness with bills door mats in front of the machines, and bills bumber sticks on the weights.

-197.5 degree cryochamber?

 

Why don't they just stand outside in the winter? 

They better be careful what they stick their tongue on in there

Agreed. The hotel/bar/restaurant scene isn’t ideal either. I’m all for a downtown location in pegulaville with the facilities in OP.

 

NFTA used to run 4 bus routes to the stadium.  It was great - I’d drive to Lancaster, go to Mass with my parents, park my car at Clarence Mall and take a 2 dollar bus ride to the stadium - avoid the parking nonsense and he whole drinking/driving risk.

 

Now, the only way out there is drive, Uber, or hire a limo.

 

I am 100% for a downtown stadium that I can walk to in nice weather, or take a quick trolley in rain or snow.

 

They should bulldoze the 50-year old dinosaur in OP (War Memorial Stadium was younger when the Bills abandoned it).  I really don’t care where the practice facility or front office is located.

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

I grew up in Rochester.  Going to SJF and seeking autographs from the players after practice is part of what cemented me as a Bills fan.  The first year of training camp it was trying to get Doug Flutie's autograph...Then Eric Moulds the next year....Then Jay Riemersma....The list goes on and on.  I still have all the training camp programs.   It's part of what made me a fan (it certainly wasn't the product on the field over the 2000's....).  I hope training camp never leaves Greater Rochester.

Beasely thinks or facilities put Dallas to shame, which is saying alot. Once we start winning we wont be able to keep the players out of here.

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.

 

people can still tailgate then go downtown, win win.

that's awesome.  Thanks for sharing.  I wonder if the Bills will sell dumbbell's, etc. with the Bills logo on them?  Would be cool to have for a home gym.

 

 

 

I might even buy some even though i have my own.

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

 

McDermott doesn't want to be away from OBD. Once contractual obligations are met they will just camp at home. When you think about it, going away to camp really doesn't make sense.

Wow they have a cryochamber that can reach minus 198 degrees F!  I wonder if they thought about freezing their best players in the off season and doubling the length of their careers?  

 

Also we could steal Brady's football and put it in this thing.  Imagine Edellmen trying to catch what would truly be a ROCK.  Hell, the ball might stick to Brady's hand and require amputation to get it off.

Maybe the Bengals could move training into one of the large breweries downtown/OTR for their training facility? What could go wrong?

Just win, baby. 

 

And if they do, their millions were clearly well spent. They attracted good free agents and were a great allocation of resources from our devoted owners.

 

If we lose, it was just another wasted attempt to match talent with missplaced money. Our owners are clueless and have yet again, struck out. 

 

Just win, baby.

It's a big time college type facility.  Because of recruiting college facilities are better than the majority of NFL ones.  Pegula was one of if not the main contributor to Penn state's football facility.  It was only a matter of time til his football team had the same caliber.

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

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!

While your feelings are clear, a businessman would think quite differently. So would those who own businesses near a potential new facility. You want to drive to the stadium, bring what you need with you, watch the game and leave. The stadium could be in a field out in cattaruagus county and it would be ok by you. My guess is you aren’t the target customer that the Bills ( a business looking to increase revenues)  would have in mind if they were to build a new stadium.

...keep it heinous......need to get New Era back to a "feared barn to play in" like the old days......heinous locker room is an added touch at no extra charge......

 

Exactly.  The visitors locker room should be miserable.  It's called "home field advantage" for a reason.

Man i would love to work there but I don't think they are hiring. I am a strength and condition coach, personal trainer and graduate in a year being doctorate of physical therapy. I want to run the program for the players.

They certainly aren't hiring if you aren't asking.
