Players Can Attend Concerts At NFL Stadiums

Update: NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy reports via Twitter that the NFL players can attend public events at stadiums, including concerts. So the post below is inaccurate. The previous headline to this story was: "NFL Lockout Also Eliminates Some Concerts For Players"

On a daily basis we learn something new about the NFL lockout. Can Tom Coughlin send Eli Manning a congratulatory note on his new baby despite the NFL lockout rule that coaches and players can't talk? Can injured players still work with team doctors? 

Here's a new one: can players attend concerts at NFL stadiums? They can't go to the stadium to work out but can they go there for fun? The answer is no, according to Kenny Chesney (via Star Tribune) who is on tour this summer.

Now that country's biggest concert attraction has hit the road again, pro football players can't see him perform at NFL stadiums because of their contract deadlock with league owners. "If you're in the NFL [players union], you can't go to your stadium, you can't work out at your stadium, you can't talk to your coaches," says Chesney.

Chalk this up to the NFL lockout and the sometimes illogical rules that come with it. Players can reportedly go to NFL stadiums for charity events but they can't go for a concert.

Does that make any sense?
