Dunno if you guys have seen this yet... From Booth Newspapers Lions players file grievance against Marinelli According to sources close to the situation, the Detroit Lions will lose two Organized Team Activities practices during the off-season because they were in violation of minicamp rules. A couple of Lions players filed the grievance against head coach Rod Marinelli because they believed the minicamp practices were too physical. Players revolt already. I love it. Coach Rod is taking no prisoners and pissing off the sissies. Analysis: Martz throws first fit, but Marinelli still wields control by Tom Kowalski ALLEN PARK - Rod Marinelli was prepared for this. Marinelli, the Detroit Lions head coach, wasn't bothered when offensive coordinator Mike Martz got upset and walked out of the team's facility Tuesday afternoon. If Martz and Marinelli can keep it together, they'll be great. I truly believe this.
