NFL Rookie Symposium Cancelled -- Is Hall Of Fame Game Next To Go?

The ongoing NFL labor dispute has begun to affect more than just offseason workouts. The league has now cancelled the annual rookie symposium, the first event to be wiped off the calendar by the NFL Lockout.

The symposium had been scheduled for June 26. IThe symposium mandatory for all 254 draft picks to attend the event where they get information on money management and advice on handling the pressures of the NFL and conducting themselves as professionals.

USA Today looked at the upcoming NFL calendar, and pointed out that the next event that could be affected is the Aug. 7 Hall of Fame Game between the St. Louis Rams and Chicago Bears could be the next to go. USa Today says the two teams would have to open training camp somewhere around July 24 in order to play in that game.

Giants' co-owner John Mara said recently that "we're still in May" and there is time to get a deal done. These two items, though, make you realize that time is growing short.
