Rookies holding out for a long time does bug me. They're supposed to be learning new offensive or defensive schemes and getting used to the pace of the game. Rookies who hold out into training camp and miss preseason games, that's just hurting them in the long run, as well as the team.
This is why players that are expected to start the next season, or play a crucial position like QB, really can't hold out or they will have a crappy season.
