Joint statement from NFL and NFLPA

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Wednesday, June 9th, 2010 at 2:08 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The following statement was released through e-mail by the NFL and NFLPA:

The NFL Management Council and the NFL Players Association have resolved a dispute concerning the Oakland Raiders’ off-season workout program.

As a result, the parties have agreed to cancel two days of the Raiders’ off-season program (next Wednesday and Thursday, June 16 and 17) which had previously been designated as OTA days. Raiders’ players are not permitted to be at the facility on those days, but will be paid for the sessions. The club cannot reschedule the cancelled OTA days.

Note: The announcement of the OTA dispute regarding the Raiders was announced following the media availability period. Will pass along any Raiders comment, if one is forthcoming. No word as yet if next Tuesday’s OTA session will be open to the media since the Wednesday session was canceled.

    Good for the union. Anyone who stands up to Al is ok in my book.

  • Thec07

    We need those OTA’s…

    Rock, You are getting slow Brother…

    We need a GM.

    #6 WR: Watkins, anyone?

    ROMAC doesn’t have Raider speed. We knew that when we drafted him. Why is he covering WR’s? I remember Kirk Morrison trying to cover Brandon Marshall in the redzone last year too. Guess how that ended up?

    and Kirk did have speed and decent cover skills. DC John Marshall needs to quit this or we’re gonna be calling for his head during the regular season. it’s bad enough that we suck against the run!

  • Thec07

    I would bet if you met Mr. Dacis you would puke all over yourself…

  • Thec07

    I asked the question Rock, hopefully things go diffrent when we put on the pads…

  • Just Fire Baby

    Who is the snitch who whined to the union?

    There goes the perfect season.

  • Just Fire Baby

    That spin-move would have resulted in a face full of worms for Watkins in pads.

    Really, Todd Watkins is just going to casually spin-move around the top collegiate LB in a few years?

    Not buying it.

    ***

    whether your MLB can tackle or not, those guys trying to cover WR’s is a mismatch and every OC on the planet will exploit it, even our very own Hue Jackson

    The semi-pros are out in droves.

    Where is Dell and Marley?

    you forgot Mike Williams

  • Thec07

    I say Lynn Swann, Jerry Rice, and Cliff Brach…
    All four of them wont be in the NFL in the future..

  • Thec07

    I thought I saw marley in here today…
    Dell has been awol, but sure he is lurkin…

    Fire Baby: I am

    my boy Higgins would run circles around Patrick Willis given a 1-on-1 match up in the open field

  • M Lonetree

    the only person to benefit from cancelled OTAs is the Polish Pectoral. He could see his chances slipping away with every snap to Chuck and Kyle.

  • BornInOakland

    Can you imagine Jack Tatum, Ted Hendricks, Mark Van Eeghen whining about too many practices?

  • RaiderRockstar

    you forgot Mike Williams

    Lynn: he’s currently a member of the Seattle Seahawks, as are J.P. Losman & Louis Rankin

    *******************************

    Yeah up until the time he finally got caught and than qave up in the future.

  • kvnbntly

    hopefully in a four reciever situation they let the lbs bring the heat and the safeties lay some wood, sounds like a third & long sitation to me so a 7-8 yd completion would do no more than pad stats.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Disagree M, the more Charlie and Kyle play, the more obvious it is that they need to get Bruce healthy.

  • M Lonetree

    Johnnie Lee, movin’ on. Has made himself expendable. Next.

  • M Lonetree

    JustFB,

    I could buy Bruce ousting Frye but with Hue Jack and Kyle being familiars Chuck is his sole chance (presuming JC and the rest remain healthy).

  • Just Fire Baby

    Just how familiar is Hue with Kyle?

    Did he ever start a game for him?

    “Experience” is what you gain when you don’t win. Kyle’s “experience” with Hue is just that.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Boller = camp arm

    he was signed after Bruce got hurt. he’ll be cut if Bruce is healthy at the conclusion of preseason

  • RaiderRockstar

    Johnnie Lee, movin’ on. Has made himself expendable.

    JLH is a lock to make the final 53, NEXT

    Patrick Will who???
    Fuk that….Rolando McClain!! And thats all I got to say about that!

  • Silver-n-Black-666

    I wonder if anyone will ever look good in the #2 jersey for us in the future?

    Russell kind of ruined that number!

  • Just Fire Baby

    JLH will have one of those preseason where he rarely ever sees the field, and if the others do something with there shot, he will be canned.

    If they don’t take off with it, he will stay.

    One Jacoby Ford PR for a TD this preseason, and JLH might as well walk back to El-Paso.

  • Macho Man Randy Savage

    Man. The Union hurts the chances of those players with the least chances to make the team. I hate unions, they are the worst possible result of mixing corrupt government bureaucrats and hoodlums.

  • JT52

    ESPN reports that it was Khalif Barnes who complained about rookie Lamaar Houston making him look like a #$%$# without pads on.

    Thanks Barnes!

    Houston looks to be like a true Raider already

  • Just Fire Baby

    Where’s Raider O??

    I’m sure he has a take on this union deal.
