Did Titans have unauthorized workouts?

Uh oh.  This could be big trouble for that organization.

 

I cant see anything coming of this except for maybe a draft pick forfeit. 

Expecting players not to workout together when their facility is closed isnt very logical.

They're gonna be forfeiting their next game, at least. They actively decided to put NFL operations at risk after twice being explicitly told not to.

Yeah it's just a guess and very well might not happen, but it's not going to be because the NFL thinks their own position is illogical. I'll say the timeline does work in Titans' favor, but I don't doubt that the Titans were doing this post-October 1st too, and if info on that comes out...

Again, there are absolutely zero scenarios where the Titans forfeit a game. If any punishment at all, it's a late draft pick or some cash. 

But you're missing the point, it isnt even that big of a deal to begin with. These guys cant be expected to just sit home for a week or two and then go play a game, that's competitively unfair to them.

You could be right. What I think will occur really has no bearing on what will actually happen.

It'll boil down to whether or not the NFL views this as "not a big deal". I will say that there must be some reason that the NFL listed game forfeiture in their punishment guidelines.

Forfeiture is a consequence added to the most recent NFL guidelines or was it always in the guidelines?

No it was added the day after the photos were taken, which is why I previously said the timeline worked in the Titans' favor (but its pretty... curious... timing in my opinion).

However, if the Titans were practicing on September 30th, I would bet that they were practicing AFTER October 1st as well, when the new guidelines were issued. The Titans social media reaction these past few hours hints at an active, continued disregard for NFL guidelines.

 We only know of the September 30th gathering because a Tennessee reporter put his email out live on the radio for scoops. We wouldn't know about it otherwise, though I bet the NFL was fully aware. Makes me question a little what else the NFL is fully aware of, but the public is not.

Well a game has never been forfeited in the history of the NFL. 

There have been much worse infractions in the history of the league that didnt even come close to sniffing a forfeiture. It's only being talked about as a scare tactic, but in reality it will never happen. 

It could be a big deal to them for the sake of publicity and making sure it looks like they are doing everything they can to be safe but with that being said, I am positive those behind the closed doors in the league office dont give two sh*ts if players were practicing together.

They should forfeit games if they are holding up the league and still congregating. I can say that without pause since we dont play them this year

And, the Texans play them twice.  Lets give Houston 2 wins to drop the pick they traded to Miami.
