It would be similar if your team is playing in the AFC Title game and the league says Tom Brady can't play because he needs to be at an NFL mandated picture taking ceremony that same day in another city thousands of miles away. http://www.wbay.com/Global/story.asp?S=6533505 Union, Management Play Hardball with Brandon Jackson May 17, 2007 07:39 PM EDT One of the reasons Brett Favre changed his mind about attending minicamp this weekend was to meet some of the new players, but he'll have to wait to meet one of the possible replacements for Ahman Green. Rookie running back Brandon Jackson will not be at camp this weekend, but not by choice. As a first-day draftee at a skill position, Jackson was invited to attend a rookie weekend in Los Angeles, which includes meeting sponsors and a trading card photo shoot. Jackson and his agent told the Players Association and the league's management council about the conflict, and said Jackson wanted to skip the weekend festivities so he could attend camp. They said no, he had to go, and if he didn't he would be locked out of the Packers facilities. Agent Gary Wichard told Action 2 Sports that he's been involved with the league for over 30 years and this is the first time this ever happened to one of his clients.
