    Thought you guys would enjoy this one, and Abs gave me his blessing to post without being too spamy.

    I tried to gather some info on the new facilities that not everybody would know. Hopefully there's a few tidbits in there that are new to you guys.

    Enjoy!

    PS. Sorry it's not leaked photos of the uniforms.

    What about the helmet in the sample locker? That is definitely not one of the old helmets. Gold is much darker.

    Also, I can't wait to see Liver's reaction to the sweaty players walking through the pools straight after practice. Ima gonna buy stock in the local chlorine supplier.

    Believe that's the matte black helmet with the white oversized Ralphie that they wore for a game last year.

    Is this one of those photos like the one of that ****ed up dress? Must be the lighting I guess, but if it does turn out to be a dark gold helmet, I'me going to put Tini to shame with "I told you so"

    That's not part of the locker, thats just the wall in Dal Ward that the model is up against.

    Also, thanks Gringo! That means a lot! I've had the pleasure of learning from some of the best in this area.

    Rep sent. Man, I'm starting to get psyched! The only sobering thought is, "If we can't recruit with this to offer...."

    Good catch, it's definitely that cove system, that picture was used because it was the only one I could find that showcased the big Ralphie on the ceiling, but I changed the pic to avoid confusion. Depaepe did confirm to me that there will be a big Ralphie on the ceiling in the middle of the locker room, though.

    Nice job RK! Rep to you.

    I can't imagine any of the players needing anything at all when this facility finally opens. Also, It looks like at least half of Franklin field will be gone when complete! I suppose many of those who tailgated there before will have to find new locations?

    There's actually going to be a barber chair. The possibilities are endless.

    What kind of donation is required for Emma Coburn to give me a buzz cut?

    A) I hope the rehab center doesn't get SO much business that it makes our athletes 2nd priority.

    2) that solar panel is badass.

    The team will still have their own personal training and rehab staff. The medical facility is supplementary and will be used in emergencies or serious injuries.

    I just picture it as a slippery slope. Been in the navy a while, seen a lot of **** like this happen "oh, we'll just rent out this part of the base for some contractors to do some missile testing. It should never impede your flight operations..."

    I'm confused by your mixing of letters and numbers.

    Likewise.

    Also, are numbered and lettered lists considered "bullets" as a general term that encompasses everything or are numbers, letters and bullets distinct categories of list types?
