    Major cheating scandal. I'd take away this years 1st round pick too.

    What is the point in restricting and limiting these things anyway?

    I believe that this was something mandated by the UNION to prevent teams from DEMANDING the players put in more time during the off-season.

    I wonder if we'll find out what the "mistake" was.

    I bet there was a silent cheer among the players when this was announced. Next time something like this happens, the players will probably have to take a number if they want to drop a dime on the coach.

    No Jersey Selected

    Maybe we'd have won that playoff game if we had an extra week of intense practice last year like the Ravens.

    Yeah, I don't get it either. You're paid millions of dollars a year and you have a union that mandates that your employer can't make use of you for four or five months of the year. Only in America ...

    Teams should be left to prepare how they see fit.

    Re: Baltimore Ravens lose a week of OTAs

    Oh I know it is negotiated just don't get how someone can get paid so much and than negotiate that they don't have to work. To me teams should be able to expect 40 hours a week out of their employees and anything over could then be negotiated (including during the season). But I guess maybe that is where the logic applies, they likely put in more than 40 hours during the season so they get it back offseason.

    Everything is limited these daze. A few years ago the rookie symposium ran late one day, i.e. it was supposed to end at say, 4 in the afternoon and was still going at 4:03, and a player rep came in and ordered all the rookies to leave. They take that stuff seriously. :nono:

    Re: Baltimore Ravens lose a week of OTAs

    Yes! Ray-Gate! Thats what we will call this. I will start spreading the word. And I agree with who ever said it about taking away a first round draft pick from the Ravens. Im a die hard Pats fan and the NFL always seems to have it out for the Patriots. It always seems like when another team does something bad it gets pushed under the rug. Why? Because the NFL hates Belichick because he is on the list of greatest coaches of all time. Because he dosent kiss the media's ass? Sorry but the NFL has a witch hunt out for New England each and every year. Bottom line, Ravens should be punished in some sort of way. :enranged:

    Given that France enacted a 35 hour work week law in 2000, I made the assumption that Brits (i.e. Mike the Brit) would know that, and I pointed to pre-2000 stuff to note where America was even prior to that. ;)
