Are players blowing the whistle on purpose

Paul KasprzakContributor IJune 17, 2010

Thursday came news that the Detroit Lions and Jacksonville Jaguars would lose two organized team activity practice due to violations of the collective bargaining agreement.

One has to start wondering if all the whistle blowing is on purpose.

Over the last several offseasons there were several reports that teams had contact in practices when they were not to, but nothing was ever done.

Now, with the CBA set to expire after this year and with the rule changes that have held some players back from hitting the unrestricted free agent market.

Many of them have signed their tenders, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t any lingering effects from it.

In the end, who ever blew the whistle on their team better be able to keep their mouth shut, because if they don’t the head coach will eventually find out who it is and will make their life miserable.
