I just read about this on profootballtalk. It made me wonder. This and a few years ago when the Raiders lost OTA time for a violation leave me kinda puzzled. Who exactly reports that they violated the rules? Is there an NFL official of some sort assigned to every team to observe to ensure teams don't practice longer than they are supposed to or violate contact rules? IF someone like this is there, they just let teams go in order to penalize them instead of warning them that their time expired? If there isn't an official of some sort there, then who the hell from the organization turns themselves in?

Every team has a player rep. I'm guessing that's your answer.

In a way, it's cheating, and they should be punished for not adhering to the rules that all the other teams had to.

In another way: the rep could just tell (or remind) the coaches "hey, remeber...can't do that" but instead they go over their heads
