Answer:  RETURNING PLAYERS

(No idiom here, so I did struggle a bit.  Good pun though!  I had to go on to the Sunday Cryptoquote, before I could solve it.  Then,  somehow, I came up with “PLAYERS”, which left me with RRGIEUNNT.  Something in there told me it might end in ING.  From the RREUNT I got RETURN, and I had my answer.  There were no new clue words, however all of the jumbles appear to be new.  I have to admit that I had a little trouble getting “falter”.  I felt that because of fault I might need a U, but I took a shot at “falter”, and it felt right.  I was able to get over my UN issues, and come up with “unfold”, after toying with flound.  The answer letter layout was mightily cryptic!  It definitely did not give anything away.  The cartoon was great, but not overly telling, for me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
