    Union complains, Raiders cancel workouts - NFL.com



    ALAMEDA, Calif. (June 15, 2007) -- The Oakland Raiders canceled the final week of their offseason training program after complaints from the NFL players' union about the intensity of the practices.

    In a brief statement, coach Lane Kiffin said the players' union believes the Raiders' offseason program violated league rules on practice standards.

    "The union has complained about the high level of intensity, player aggressiveness and fast pace of our practices and, as a result, has taken away the final week of our offseason program," said Kiffin, the NFL's youngest and least experienced head coach.

    Remember Lane Kiffin at his introductory press conference?

    "The games will seem easy, because practices will be so hard."

    When I was Googling stuff earlier, and that popped up, at first I thought it was some lame parody from the Onion or another "joke" website.

    But, it's from NFL.com ..... the joke is on the Raiders and their fans.

    Another head coach doomed by his crybaby players.

    I predict another 2-14 season.

    Great start to their year, any chance we can trade the Raiders for UC or some other team that could at least compete at this level?

    Are the players crying about practices or the union?

    Nobody could make this stuff up. The very idea. Welcome to the land of Pride and Poison, Lane. Considering your youth, you'll have years to recover from this experience. You might even be able to salvage some self respect.

    It's players who file these complaints through the union. I've never heard of players doing this via the media (at least seriously) in order to get something rectified. Typically, player reps will go to the union so that a formal complaint(s) can be filed. Otherwise its just players complaining/whining, and I guarantee you no one wants to be singled out.
    What kills me is the thought of players on a team like this that actually look forward to working harder and getting better. Of all the teams in the league that should welcome change and better work ethic, I would think the Raiders would be on top of that list. You go from trying to change things for the better to being labeled as p*ssies.
