Adrian should get fined, if for no other reason than he had 5 months to schedule this, his aunt is the one who organizes it, and the season ended in december.

I love All Day, but he hasn't reached farve-level yet, he is not bigger than the team, and he should be there holding on to his 14-pound football working on his fumblitis.

C'mon....Adrian Peterson day was manufactured by his broke family members as a way to put money in their pockets. And it takes away from offseason mandatory mini-camps? Kind of ridiculous.

C'mon, people, lets let Chili handle 'AP', lest we invigorate a dreaded "schism". Not to worry. Chili is expected to be unhappy when a guy is absent without a note from his mommy. AP ain't excused and will no doubt have to carry an exra pound on his fumble-ball. Let's concentrate on eradicating take-away give-aways and dumb penalties ( as compared to 'smart' penalties). If you ask me, I think 'mini-camps should be for ninies. The season is long enough as it is. It has got to be one crappy grind and with 'bye week' where it is this year, they may as well not even have it! So who needs 'minies and minies'. I think Chili should turn the mickey-mouse stuff over to his understudies and let them take notes to show when Chili gets back from the antartic or wherever.

And another thing, why not just have a National Day of Parades for all players everywhere and then get down to business!!!
