Why wouldn't it be in WV again...? Did I miss something?

I would guess they wouldn't renew the contract after 3 straight 7-9 seasons. Time for a change!

Contract is up I believe

The owner of the Greenbrier was elected governor of the state this past November, and he was one of the main driving forces behind the Saints holding camp there. The contract was up last year, and both sides expressed an interest in renewing the deal, but I think that the governor race and other factors put those negotiations on the back burner.

Now, the Greenbrier has been named as the home base for this new spring football league, which would complicate the Saints going back there for way too many reasons to count. So it would be my guess that the previous arrangement is not even a consideration at this point.

So, you mean that the Saints are not blaming their 7-9 seasons on the Greenbriar?

Where was training camp when we won the SB? Was it Jackson MS? Move it closer to Louisiana.
