Understand they could use the economic infusion...

But you gotta think that police and first responder services are stretched thin right now...

And factor the air quality after a flooding of that extreme...

Those are not very big communities to begin with, so you know those services are limited before you factor in flood recovery AND the training camp and the circus it'll bring comes to town...

I remember what it meant when the circus named the Saints returned to New Orleans. It might do this version of the Saints good to experience what the 2006 team went through and what they meant to a community, albeit on a smaller scale.

Nothing wrong with the air quality. Where are you getting this info?

The facilities and ground are fine. Unfortunate for those who lost their lives but people need to take precautions. I'm certain a warning was put out. I'm a damn good swimmer but even I would leave.

It will be a good thing for the locals and also the Saints players spreading some cheer around there for a change.

Re: Training Camp Relocated?

Anyone have updates (training camp) on the Greenbriar area?

Caught the tail end of CNN coverage the other night and it appears to be a mess right now (looks like post Katrina) & the resort itself is currently being used as a shelter.
