Ok, so all of a sudden in one day the conditioning of all three has gone from unacceptable to passing. How is that possible. Does anyone assigned to follow the team in a journalistic capacity have the answers here. Did anyone ask? Is this a knee-jerk reaction from the organization, because out of shape players doesn't market the product in the best light?

"I thought it would just go away, but it didn't". The epitomy of professionalism. Like he isn't slow enough already. To wait until training camp begins to adress a lingering injury from last year is so stupid it isn't even funny. I really don't understand how someone making millions can get away with conducting themselves this way, as if such a thing is just an afterthought. Doesn't any off-season monitoring of players occur, or is it like seventh graders leaving school for the summer break. This type of thing screams bad management top to bottom, from the general manager to the player. And PS. if the fact that Earl Barron wasn't signed to a team is an excuse/justification as to why he was not in shape, then it is a piss poor one. Not the kind of professional I would bank a mere 900,000 for. I could care less how significant his role is. "Smush should have come here, and we could have fixed it". That is WEAK coming from Riley. How does that happen and WHY? Would someone with a pad and pencil please probe these issues a little more in the Sports department at Sun Sentinel, please. WHO WHAT WHERE WHEN AND WHY!!!!!!!!!

Maybe this year, the fans shouldn't show up unless the team makes the playoffs. I'm happy I don't shell out for season tickets anymore, because this would really piss me off.

It took one day to pass the conditioning test? Give me a break. Riley is a liar and Ira is once again pushing the lie envelope up for his ridiculous blog.
