    Re: Bud Grant: “I hated training camps”

    I never remembered Bud having so few coaches. Amazing isn't it?
    You got to remember, back then players weren't jumping ship all the time for more money via free agency. A lot of the players were "lifers" unless they were traded.

    You didn't have to re-train or re-coach players back then year in & year out because they were returning to the same team they playedon the year before.

    Nowadays, with teams having more & more new faces year in & year out, the requirement to coach/train these new players from different teams as well as the rookies has increased, thereby increasing the number of staff required.
