I can here it now, gee coach do really have to play in the rain? So you train your players to play in perfect weather with no experience in bad weather. Good call. Pampered much?

Above might be three of the dumbest spring football comments written in a very long time. All of your top programs have that type of facility so they don't lose reps like you will with the weather. You can actually get solid reps in and not worry. Because we are known for how horrible the weather is in VA.... Idiots. That's like training our military, are they pampered because they don't get real bullets shot at them doing boot camp? You people are really either true haters or so dumb I surprised you even able to type.

It was named after George Welsh so I assume it has whiskey on tap, hope to visit soon.

A soft team just got softer...ever hear of the Junction Boys...? That team doesn't deserve to share time at McIntire Field with the Rec League softball teams. Guess they are afraid they might get muddy or cold. Glad they named it after Coach Welsh at least, that guy has forgotten more about football than those clowns coaching that team now will ever know. I guarantee he would only use that place if it was lightening outside.

What horrible weather? Weather here in the south is lame. Your analogy is lame also. You want to see horrible weather? spend a month in the north Atlantic during winter.
