I also suspect that's the case. We do have to remember, though, that no other sport has to keep track of anywhere near 100 players like football does.


They have 100 players...but they also have a virtual phalanx of coaches...over 20, IIRC...hell, with those numbers they could host sleep overs at their cribs. Take 4-5 players each and be done with it. :)

Only the travel roster stays at hotels, even at home games. So a walk on or player that suits up at home games and isn’t on travel roster, is not at the Home hotel.
