of what things might arise. I am probably being nit picky.
But what I was thinking about was the case when they leave a day early for road games to get in a practice at the road venue the day before the game.
In the spring, teams would not worry about such things and would normally travel to and from the road venue on the day of the game. I believe there are rules that limit travel flexibility in the spring that force teams to handle it this way. Budgets also come into play.
