Reason for early practices this week

Some of you may be wondering why such early practice times this week (9:30).

Hamilton is 3 hours ahead. While kickoff is 1:30 Hamilton time, in terms of the Lion’s player’s internal biological clocks, it will be (feel like) 10:30 a.m.

The issue of jet lag is more pronounced travelling west though.

If Montreal or Toronto or Hamilton were headed out here, would they not practice later in the day in their time zone?
