  • Jackson Not Allowed To Attend Mandatory Minicamp

    http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=607420

    This is pretty stupid. Players should never be forced to miss practices.

    I think it is absolutely unconscionable. The players make their money on the field and on the practice field. It is clearly in the player's best interests to attend the camp. I don't undertstand what the union is doing.

      The NFL has to do everything in its power to appease the companies that pay them big dollars for licensing. It's sad, but this is what the nature of the beast has become.

        It's terrible, especially because Jackson is a rookie. There's nothing that would benefit him more than being in camp with his teammates so he can learn and compete for a spot on the team.

          yeah its just stupid i hope this brings some attention to the issue and Goodell and the NFLPA and all of them get on the ball and make sure there is nothing like this that would stop players from coming to practice.

              Its not just Jackson, there are 35 (I think?) players that have been prohibited from attending mini-camp. I believe its all first rounders and or each teams first pick.

                That is pretty stupid. I don't understand why the NFL can't reschedule the Rookie Premier to another time where NFL teams aren't having their mandatory mini-camps.

                  Well, in the NFL's defense, the Lions, Bears, Packers, and Colts are the only teams with mini-camps this week

                        Exactly. If you're that worried about, don't schedule a mini-camp this week. It's not like they didn't know about this well in advance.

                        Then again I guess next weekend would have conflicted with Brittany Favre's graduation.

                          PACKERS COULD HAVE MOVED THEIR MINICAMP

                          A league source tells us that the Green Bay Packers could have moved the dates of this weekend's mandatory minicamp after it became clear that there was a conflict this weekend with the 2007 Rookie Premier Photo Shoot -- and that the L.A. event for 35 hand-picked incoming players is a rock and the minicamp is scissors.

                          Instead, the camp stayed put as originally scheduled, and second-round draft pick Brandon Jackson (the possible season-opening starter at tailback) won't be able to participate.

                          Per the source, other teams moved their camps once the issue became obvious several weeks ago. The Lions, for example, convened on Tuesday through Thursday, even though (as we understand it) they were initially slated to have a full-squad camp over the weekend.

                          As a result, the Lions were able to have access to receiver Calvin Johnson.

                          And maybe that's why the Packers have deferred all comment on the issue to Jackson and his agent; there's nothing that the Packers can really say about this one, because by all appearances it's a problem that could have been avoided with better planning.

                              This is disgraceful. A player wants to make the right choice and go to mini-camp, but the NFL won't let him?
