Brewer Happy Lockout Cancelled Rookie Symposium

Giants 4th round pick James Brewer isn’t too broken up about one lockout causality: The rookie symposium

“That’s probably one thing I’m not going to say I’ll miss, going to [Ohio] for three days or so of pretty much a freshman orientation,” Brewer told the New York Post. “Kind of letting you know what not to do. I feel I have pretty good common sense, so I think I’ll be OK. I don’t think I need someone to tell me not to hit women and stuff like that. I think I kind of know that already.”

“Those three days [at the symposium] doesn’t make you better as a player,” Brewer said. “It’s more of ‘Here are the rules, don’t break ‘em’ deal and I would much rather be in Jersey training.”

I can’t tell if this is obnoxious or not. Brewer’s probably right: For some people, the rookie symposium is probably unnecessary. For some people, however, it could be vital. How many people, even with the symposium, still do stupid things? And how many people change their actions because of something they learned at the symposium? I don’t know. Brewer probably won’t be fined, but he might be better off just keeping his mouth shut.

    Dez Bryant probably needed it, Kenrick Ellis might need it, but it’s good to see the Giants are drafting players that feel they don’t need it, good for him. I don’t see this as obnoxious, he obviously has given himself a workout regimen to be in top game condition and three days away from it to be talked down to, to some degree, isn’t of interest to him.
