Raiders Cancel Practice After Player Whining

Some Oakland Raiders players cried to their union about having to practice hard, so the team has canceled the remaining sessions.

The Oakland Raiders canceled the final week of their offseason training program Friday 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.

The Raiders won’t hold next week’s scheduled offseason activities, which were expected to be mostly weightlifting sessions.

Sheesh. Remind me again, who had the worst record in the NFL last year?
