First of all Adrians a great player and im really glad hes on our team.However I dont see any reason why they couldnt have rescheduled the event to last week,next week or next month.I suspect he may get fined cause if they dont then other players will want to miss.We need to start getting ready for the season.The coaches need to evaluate each player and see if anything needs to be done before training camp.

Vikes need to handle this internally and quickly and not let it become a media blitzkrieg; do not need distractions already. BF missing camp is enough as it is, maybe this will bring him in to camp at some point, BF that is, to alleviate some of the burden that this fiasco has brought. But you made a good point Dog, why not re-schedule it, that seemed like the coorect course of action to take re: this issue.

This distraction bothers me.It makes me wonder whats going through Petersons head.Hes always been a team player and been to everything before.Seems like hes bitter about something.

Lest just tailor the entire team to an AP schedule. No wonder why this organization is a joke.
