The training facilities at the stadium are so much better now after the recent renovations. Harder to justify leaving for camp now.

Worked well for us last year. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.  

Cynic in me says OBD makes trying to continue hiding the vaccine issue easier than being out among fans at SJF.

Most teams have abandoned off-site training camps and you are looking out of step to free agents if you go off site these days IMO. The traditional training camp was invented to get the guys in shape after a long off season where the players would work regular jobs. Now everyone in the league (except Dawkins) works out 365 days a year to stay in the league.

Another tradition gone...

It was a great tradition. I love the teambuilding aspect, but we have seen the Bills build a great team atmosphere and build an incredible training facility. With the team in such a good place as a group, it just makes sense to put them where they can train the best and that is OBD.

Sad - it was a great place to take the kids and get to see the team up close.

 

I am so disappointed...

It will be interesting to see if this is a temporary COVID-related move, or if it turns out to be a permanent decision.

Probably a permanent decision.

If you’ve never been to camp at SJF, it was absolutely fantastic: ability to see the players work up close and personal, see the interactions, watching the improvement over the course of TC. 
 

Living in ROC, this is a real bummer to me but I understand it.

The Bills could develop camaraderie by providing mandatory or optional housing at the Marriott at Harbourcenter. An Arena Football League surface for workouts could be placed over the rinks at Harbourcenter and/or Key Bank Center. I’m sure the Pegulas could get a discount. 
 

Players and staff could drive, limo or bus back and forth to the Orchard Park facilities as needed.

I have thought for a while now that McDermott will slowly phase out fan attendance at training camp. It creates a competitive disadvantage if our opponents can read/watch fan articles and videos. As it is the media only has access to 1 out of every 3 practices and they can't report on certain things. They can't force fans to avoid reporting those things. I enjoy going to training camp once a year but the bottom line is making it easier to win games.
