You can't make this stuff up: Raiders cancel off season workouts.
First-year Oakland Raiders head coach Lance Kiffin canceled the final week of offseason team activities due to the complaints from the NFL players' union about the intense physical style of the practices.
"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 in a statement.
Further explanation of the reason why a franchise can lose 14 games in one season. Note to Raiders players: the regular season is more intense. Well, every other NFL team's regular season is more intense. I think a Raider's regular season is the equivalent to a Chiefs preseason.
