    Hope the turf goblins at Franklin Field don’t end someone’s season.

    • TNA

      That was the absolute first thing that came to mind. Unless they’ve upgraded recently, that turf is a thin sheet of AstroTurf over concrete. They should instead hold practices at the nearby soccer fields and/or science laboratories in the adjacent block.

      • SoCalEaglesFan

        They upgraded the concrete turf 10 years ago. It’s state of the art now. At least I think it is. I do know they installed Sprinturf in 2004. It’s the rubber infill stuff that has cushion and give. Not the old Vet style astroturf that tears your skin off with every tackle.

    is there a chance to meet and perhaps get autographs from players at these open camp? Thinking about taking my boy down to see them.. we’re in NY..

    • I’ve_got_BIG_balls

      Good question! I’d like to know that too

    • http://www.corcommunity.com/ theycallmerob

      when I went last year, we didn’t really have that opportunity. Chip ran a tight ship, literally the players came out and went right into drills (and moved fast, according to the soundtrack/announcer)

    • JReamer

      I took my daughter last year to the Linc for a practice and obviously during the actual practice she was extremely bored. However before practice we got vouchers for autographs and for her to run on the field after the practice. The vouchers sent you to specific lines for autographs. We got Carrie Williams, Brandon Fletcher and Trevard Lindley. Over all it was a great time. If it’s anything similar your son should enjoy it.

    • Syracuse Eagle Fan

      JReamer is right on. At the Linc last year they hand out tickets once you enter the gates for autograph lines 1-4. After practice they had tables lined up in the upper decks with the players signing. A great experience for the kids. I’ve travelled to training camp for nearly a decade now from Syracuse, NY.

      • Docboy

        is there a way of knowing who will be available for autographs? sounds like a blast!

        • Syracuse Eagle Fan

          They often will post what “groups” will be doing autographs but not individuals. So receivers and lineman, etc. You don’t know who’s in your line until you get there. In the past typically the line 1 had the biggest name people.

        You have made that long commute to see these bums????

        • Kyle

          If they’re bums why are you reading about them???

    Did your Ex husband or wife break your heart?

    My name is Rasasi Josh, i live in California, and i got married four months ago.My husband and i have been living a very happy and lovely life.so as time went on, i began to notice this strange attitude that he was possessing.He was now going out with other girls, to the extent that he was no longer picking up my calls, and he was not even sleeping in my house anymore. I became confused and didn’t know what to do anymore.So i became worried and stranded, that brought so many thoughts into my mind, because i have never experienced a thing like this before in my life.So i decided to visit a spell caster, to see if he can help me out.So immediately i went to the internet, where i saw an amazing testimony of a spell caster who brought someone’s ex lover back, “bravespellcaster@gmail.com” so i contacted him immediately and i explained to him all my problems and he told me that it will be very easy for him to solve, compare to the ones that he has done.and he also gave me some proof to be really sure of his work, and he assured me that my husband will come back to me immediately he is through with the spell casting.and also he told me to put all my trust in him, and i really obeyed him.So it was 8:00 am on the next morning, when i was about going to work, when i received my husband’s call, and he told me that he was coming back home, and he apologized to me, and told me that he is very sorry for the pain that he has cost me.and after some hours later, he really came back home, and that was how we continued our marriage with lots of love and happiness, and our love was now stronger than how it were before.And he also told me that once my heart desire has been granted unto me that i should go and testify of his work right here on the internet. Right now i am the happiest woman on earth today as i am writing this testimony, and i want to really thank “Dr.Brave” for bringing back my husband, and for bringing joy and love to my family.So my greatest advice for you out there who your husband or your wife is acting strange or behaving the same way like this, or you have any problem with your relationship or anything related to do with spell casting, is for you to go and visit this man anytime, and i assure you that he will be of help to you, and i am 100% sure that he will solve it out.Simply contact him on his email via bravespellcaster@gmail.com …So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website http://bravespellcaster.yolasite.com, Thanks.
