Thomas Dimitroff was driving to a scheduled NFL meeting the other day, then decided it would be better for his mental and physical well-being if he went for a bike ride instead.
“I made it all the way to the Camp Creek Parkway exit,” the Falcons’ general manager said. “Then I sort of made a U-turn and went back home to Buckhead.”
Dimitroff didn’t actually miss the meeting, which was canceled. This was Thursday afternoon. NFL owners were scheduled to vote on a proposed collective bargaining agreement with the players at an airport hotel. The league’s general managers were scheduled to meet shortly thereafter at a different hotel to go over new CBA rules. But as owners kept delaying their vote for no apparent reason — oh look, here comes the dinner buffet! – Dimitroff decided he didn’t feel like sitting in a hotel to wait them out.
