That’s what he told the Sporting News. Though a judge ordered an end to the NFL lockout yesterday, the owners are apparently still not allowing players access to weight rooms, as they appeal the decision. So, for now, DeMarcus Ware of the Dallas Cowboys may have to stick to this routine:
I’ve been spending a lot of time lately in the service department of a Hummer dealership in Grapevine, Texas, not too far from the DFW Airport and Valley Ranch, the Cowboys’ headquarters. And I don’t even own a Hummer.
Actually, the dealership is closed. I know the owner, and he was gracious enough to let me turn the service area into a makeshift gym so I can stay in shape during the lockout.
We’ve probably got some of the best weight-lifting equipment around the league in there, including free-motion weights which a guy donated, ropes and a device called “The Flipper” which simulates a tire that you can flip.
t’s a really exclusive gym. You won’t find another one like it.
