So much for Raider Nation...

In the meantime this is a good indication of why college coaches experience so little succes when they go to the pros.

NFL Ping consideration.

(BTW, your Red Sox put on a clinic last night against my Giants. Now we know what $120 million or so can buy someone—Barry Zito, for better or worse. :( ).

Thank God!

Finally!

I no longer have to worry about not knowing all their stats...
I don't even have to remember their names,
their current standings,
where they are from this week,
(I start to lose track after El Segundo)...

It's all just too intense.

If were the coach I would look at cutting the whiners. If they do not want to practice hard then they probably do not want to play hard.

Go Pats!!!!!

Somebody took exception to volunteers getting 'extra credit'?

It does not seem prudent to risk a carrier ending injury, for a spring time workout. It is in no ones best interest.

Said NFL Players union head and ex-Raider, Gene Upshaw:

"We(they) no longer will be wearing helmets or pads. The game of football has become too brutal and we will be replacing said equipment with dresses and flags. No longer will we(they) have to practice, but instead we'll bring in a fashion expert to dress our players in the most stylish mid calf dresses. In keeping with this new and friendlier play, practices are canceled, unless it is an air conditioned confine. Sweating will not be allowed!"

Aren't unions great?

The union leaders need to be tied down and forced to watch the movie “North Dallas 40”. Football the way it was meant to be.

“Now poot, don’t you pee in my whirlpool bath... don’t do it”!

If you look around on youtube, you can find video of Nick Saban making an NFL player cry in training camp.

Don't enter into these agreements if you do not expect to be held to the contracts language.

Simple really.

This is a farce.

This story is a bogus sham to make Upshaw look good, there is no doubt whatsoever that the raiders are cooperating in a scam story that BS to help Upshaw.

I guess favors do get repaid in raider nation.
