One aspect of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, now officially sealed between the NFL and its players, is that there are no longer two-a-days, as theyve been known since the beginning of time. Two-a-days meant when teams go to training camp, players expected to be in pads twice a day for a week at the very least, and sometimes longer. Now teams are allowed to have two practices a day for weeks, but only one is with full pads; the other is only shorts and helmets. When I first found out about this agreement, I was surprised, more so than anything money related. I almost went through a process of surprise, disbelief, anger, and then acceptance. Thats right, I was actually angry that young NFL players were not going to go through the constant and repetitive physically punishing practices that I went through for my four training camps with the Dallas Cowboys. And I was surprised that I was angry. Why cant they go through what I went through to make an NFL team? Trust me; under Tom Landry - one of the greatest positive influences in my life - we hit all the time, everyday! But as time passed, I really have reversed my thought. This absence of padded two-a-days may be one of the best things to happen to football in a long time. Padded practices are for coaches, not players. For coaches, they want to see it to believe it, and sometimes they have to feel it. Collisions in NFL practices are something to see to believe and yes, the violence is at a level you can feel. If coaches see it to believe it and feel it, it gives them peace of mind that this player can go from the practice field to the game field without diminished returns. Not the players. They already know that they can play, and proving it over and over does nothing but wear them out. Even young players know that. They know, and if they cant hit, coaches will see it in practice once a day and in the exhibition games. Often during training camp, a player gets numb. You practice to survive, not thrive. You practice to maintain, not to improve. With a new awareness of life after football, limiting the brutality of padded two-a-days is the best thing the league could have done. In some ways, its more significant than money, because youre taking away a percentage of physical collisions that only entertain coaches. Understand this also: with the money involved, young people will kill themselves to play in the NFL. Yes, part of that is they want to play in the NFL, but the other part is they know if they can start for five years, they are financially set for life. What would you do to be financially set for life? A risk or two? I have to admit, I have done a complete 180 on the issue. This is great; it keeps players fresher and better. I hope the CFL, NCAA, CIS, and especially high school football adopt the same policy. The NFL is not getting softer, its getting smarter.

 On the strength of this achievement, Rolex would eventually Replica Watches become the world’s largest manufacturer of chronometer-certified wristwatches. The Replica Watch Geneva-based brand perfected the concept of the modern watch in 1926 by inventing the waterproof “Oyster” case to protect the movement inside and then, in 1931, by Fake Watches developing the self-winding “Perpetual” rotor movement. Today, all Rolex Oyster Perpetual Watch Replicas watches are officially certified chronometers, carrying on the heritage of the pioneering role the brand played in bringing precision to the wristwatch.
