It might be worth a trip this season. They just installed new SprintTurf at Bobcat Stadium and it looks pretty sharp.



I just wish they'd do something about the high school style visiting bleachers.

I was born and raised in Somerset, Pa. I made the decision to attend FSU based on the fact that my girlfriends was going to go there as well. Considering I had been accepted at Penn State, it was a bad decision. I never did make it down for any Redskin practices. My friend Jeff used to do security for them and he told me that I didn't miss much.

I did have a hole in the wall of my room my freshman year because one of the Redskins had kicked the wall one night before they left campus.

The average player only plays 4 yrs in the league and the league doesn't have garanteed contracts like the nba 1st rounders. Half of the players in the league their first contract is the largest in their career. It might not be right for rookies to make more than pro bowl players but some do. But you could of said the same thing when they were drafted! They made more than the previous star players. This trend will continue until they garantee contracts.

well guaranteed contracts is probably the worst thing that can happen considering the players who arent cut for the nfl and injuries that happen. right now i cant say that ben is overpaid despite the lofty rookie contract he signed. c. palmers contract was probably a good deal for that matter (leave it to the stupid bengals to extend it prematurely) all in all, top to bottom, the nfl probably has the best system.

I think they should go for all the money they can get....But no hold outs and the NFL should put a cap on the picks.......Make each pick have a certain amount....no matter who the player is....worth it or not.....Then there would be no problem....A player picked in the 1st round 15th pick would know exactly what he was going to get as would a player in the 4th rd 130th pk
Each spot should have a set amount no nogitiating by either side

I love that idea..that way you wouldnt have these over-inflated egos, who have never played a game, saying .."I may have been picked 7th, but I feel I am a 1st pick and should be compensated as such"...
