ravinmaniac52 Posted August 2, 2014 Share Posted August 2, 2014 Due to rules of the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NFL Players Association and the NFL, the Baltimore Ravens’ Friday (Aug. 8) joint practice with the San Francisco 49ers at M&T Bank Stadium has been cancelled. The CBA limits the number of consecutive days a team can practice or take part in football activities during training camp. The decision to call off Friday’s event stems from the 49ers’ practice/travel schedule leading up to Thursday’s first preseason game (Aug. 7 at 7:30 p.m.). The Ravens will still hold a free and open practice at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis on Monday (Aug. 4) at 7 p.m. The practice will have interactive fan events, including post-practice player autograph signings for children, fun-filled activities designed specifically for younger fans, giveaways and cheerleader/mascot meet-and-greets. It will also feature a youth football clinic on the field prior to practice. “We’re very disappointed for fans who were planning to attend Friday’s practice against the 49ers,” Ravens team president Dick Cass stated. “We hope some of them will be able to come to the practice at Navy on Monday.” (Note: The previously-scheduled Ravens-49ers stadium practice would have been a walk-through-type session due to the game being played on Thursday night. Additionally, due to the Orioles’ game at Camden Yards on Friday evening, there also wouldn’t have been player autograph signings following practice.) http://www.baltimoreravens.com/news/article-1/Press-Release-Ravens-Forced-to-Call-Off-Stadium-Practice-vs-49ers/f8354dcf-0ad8-4d90-b591-197041ed71cb Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
