John Clayton reported earlier that there is a tentative plan to open training camps on July 24.
It will be chaos he says. No kidding.
The plan would be to open camp and run free agency for the first two weeks, during camp, and to give the players, coaches, and agents a rundown of the agreement on the fly.
Hail the almighty dollar! Why give any thought to the madness that will ensue. And forget about how coaches and gms will unintentionally break the rules. And how agents won't understand the rules of the road as they shop their players. And how the "games" (if you can call them that) will be nothing more than a disorganized scrimmage - for which the fans will be expected to pay full price!!
Assuming they make it back, the first game I'll actually watch won't be for 4 weeks, that is after the regular season starts.
