Players are coming into town. Tender offers are being signed. The Lions are, once again, preparing for another long season of football.
While preparations are going on, it has been reported that there has been no comment from the former rookies in way of explanation for their actions. The Lions as a team are being rather hushed about it as well.
Really, we shouldn't be happier. Why?
1) The Lions are dealing with issues in house. Just as they are not overly concerned with how people view the way they draft, they also don't care if people know or understand their disciplinary proceedures. The things they are focusing on are contributions to winning. Announcing to the world exactly how they intend to make sure they keep the players in line, doesn't help the players or the team. They are the only ones that matter. So while it may look like they are ignoring the past, they are in fact showing respect, building respect, and demonstrating exactly what they expect in the future.
