. . .for working too much ;)

http://www.charlotte...rs-kicking.html

Ron Rivera had to do something last week he had probably never done in 16 years of coaching: Kick players out of the team facility for studying too long.

Rivera, the Panthers’ second-year coach, learned there were players who had been at Bank of America Stadium last Monday longer than the six-hour limit spelled out in the NFL’s new collective bargaining agreement.

So Rivera stuck his head in the first-floor meeting rooms to break the bad news.

“I went downstairs and said, ‘OK, everybody who’s been here since 7, you’ve got to go,’” Rivera said. “So those guys got up and left.”

Some parts of this CBA are such a damn joke. You can tell the parts Drew Brees fought for.

The article talks about the coaches having more prep time because of this, and how it may help, so maybe we are able to better evaluate our own players with more time to break down the film and make better roster cuts.

These players wanting to stay late and study make me sick trying to learn and poo....Thank God the CBA put a stop to that.

I think with how hard our players are working, knowing what Rivera expects and meeting his expectations, and jumping to RR challenge, as he raises his expectations is the greatest thing for this team as they move forward.

Meanwhile, the NFLPA is fighting mandatory leg pads and protecting Jonathan Vilma while arguing the players need more health benefits.

Glad to hear Rivera is having to kick guys out of the facility, wonder how many other coaches (if any) have had to do this so far?
