Private training camp sessions

Postby dream_017 » Tue Jul 01, 2008 10:33 pm

Looks like the Lions are offering season ticket holders a chance to see the team, similar to last year. For some reason I didn't get an invitation last year, but I got mine in the mail today for this year. It is good for 1 date, the season ticket holder and 1 guest. The dates are:
July 24-28th. There are 2 seesions per day.

I am planning on going, so I will let you guys know what I see (or don't see).

I'm sure that they will also have a public practice again, I went to that last year and plan on going again if they do it. I think this will be a little better then that. :-? ;-D

We expect a complete thorough breakdown at each position, so don't go thinking you are just there for fun! :-b

Even just watching the Lions camp should be a blast. I especially want to hear your views on the RB crisis..er..I mean situation.

Well, it's a lot of torture, because you have to be a season ticket holder O:-)

There are other teams that have their workouts open to the public. Not sure if the Bears are or not, but the Packers did as of a five years ago. It is a lot of fun if you are really into it, or easily amused as I am.

It is pretty fun. The Lions had theirs open a few years ago, but closed them recently. They have had one open to the public for a couple years now. They have also begun giving a preview to the season ticket holders too. But, like Mooch said there are a number of teams that have them open.

Stay tuned for my report....

Open training camps for me and they are only 1 mile from my house. I attend as much as I can. :-)
