Blah blah lockout blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah appeal blah blah court. That should cover the big happenings, so now we can go ahead and give you another Fantasy Guru Daily.

NFL cancels Rookie Symposium… The first event casualty of the lockout isn’t going to get fans too upset, maybe because most of them don’t even know what it is. And honestly, it probably won’t get the rookies too upset either. The annual symposium, at which the rookies are taught about the history of the game and warned about the risks of being a wealthy young male and celebrity, has been axed thanks to the lockout.
