Pardon the separate thread, but I'm hoping this will generate a few responses from those that have been there. If you're looking for the best practices (rooks & veterans in pads) would you recommend: mornings of two-a-days afternoons of two-a-days the single practice of a one-a-day I'm going with a bunch of friends, mostly retired folks, so it probably won't be a weekend, to avoid the crowds. I vaguely remember the single-practice days are sometimes walk-throughs. Is that wrong? Also, as TC wears on, vets wear out and BB gives them days off, but I guess that's unpredictable. And at the very start, some rooks might not have signed and some vets might be on that PUP list that seems to last about a week until they've passed conditioning or rehab or whatever. Mrs.B, I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, if you're lurking. You are the expert.
