Brad Childress hasn't decided whether to fine Adrian Peterson

NFL_childress1.jpgVikings running back Adrian Peterson chose attendance at the Fourth Annual Adrian Peterson Day in East Palestine, Texas over attendance at the team’s mandatory minicamp.  Vikings coach Brad Childress chose not to be happy about it.

Though Peterson ditched the minicamp without permission, Childress said Sunday that hasn’t decided whether to fine Peterson for his actions.  The full video of the coach’s press conference can be viewed at the team’s official web site.

The Vikings can fine Peterson nearly $10,000 for missing the three-day event.  Technically, teams also can pursue recovery of 25 percent of the player’s signing bonus allocation for the current season.  However, because few if any top-ten picks receive signing bonuses due to the niceties of the rookie pool, Peterson likely faces no exposure in that regard.

The bigger question, in our view, continues to be whether Peterson intended to send a message that relates in whole or in part to a desire to land a new contract containing a significant signing bonus — and other significant cash payments.

    Chilly is such an idiot. When Favre leaves he’s gonna have to wear the knee pads for Fumble nuts too.

  2. Tsinakis311 says: Jun 13, 2010 6:41 PM

    not a story

  3. Ravenmuscle says: Jun 13, 2010 6:42 PM

    I’d give him a bonus. Practicing FUMBLING is a big waste of time.

  4. ashylarry says: Jun 13, 2010 6:45 PM

    Is he going too fine Favre? Last I checked Favre did sign a 2 yr deal. So that means he should be there!!!

  5. PackAttackBackMan says: Jun 13, 2010 6:47 PM

    What would Mr. Humble do? Since he is the EXPERT on EVERYTHING……….

  6. ashylarry says: Jun 13, 2010 6:47 PM

    Mr. Florio, I think you or someone on your staff needs to remind Childress that he has only won ONE PLAYOFF GAME. He talks and struts around like he is a SuperBowl winning Head Coach…

  7. Little Tommy says: Jun 13, 2010 6:49 PM

    He better check with FAVRAY first ’cause we all know who runs that team. LOL

  8. poiuyt says: Jun 13, 2010 6:51 PM

    Adrian Peterson is just following the team’s leader. How can Childress fine Peterson if he doesn’t also fine Favre?

  9. vikingfan says: Jun 13, 2010 6:52 PM

    Yes, I too think it is about the contract.

  10. Randomjim says: Jun 13, 2010 6:59 PM

    I think Childress should hold off on fining him with a verbal agreement that Peterson will be docked $1,000 for each fumble so he has incentive to hold on to the ball.

  11. dlodown1 says: Jun 13, 2010 7:01 PM

    The Vikings are a soap opera cast, not a football team. Childress is one of the most uncreditable coaches in the league. Like somebody else said, when Favre goes, so goes Childress.

  12. VikingsPrincess says: Jun 13, 2010 7:02 PM

    1) Childress should fine Peterson. No doubt about it.
    2) If he’s sending a message, send one back that looks like this: here’s your new contract. You’ll note that your pay is tied to your actual ability to hold on to the ball. We’ll pay you by the carry. And when you fumble, we’ll fine you. Let’s see if that helps.
    As a Vikings fan, all I can say about this guy is that he needs to stop believing the Nike hype. His performance last year was eclipsed by Chris Johnson of the Titans. Let’s see what this year brings.
    NOT off to a good start, Adrian. IMO.

  13. PackFanNChiTown says: Jun 13, 2010 7:02 PM

    Unless he fines The Favre he can’t really fine Peterson…
    Actually he’s waiting on Favre to get back to him on what he should do since Brett hasn’t returned his call yet.

  14. VoxVagina says: Jun 13, 2010 7:07 PM

    I”m not sure if my last comment went through because of internet browser issues. What I said was that Favre is part of the Vikings as part of a 2 year deal he signed last year. If he’s not being fined for his absence from this mandatory minicamp, then Peterson shouldn’t be either.

  15. DICECOLDSR says: Jun 13, 2010 7:14 PM

    Everyone seems to forget, Adrian didn’t inform the coach he would be missing ota’s until 2 days prior, didn’t have surgery, nor has he been mulling over retirement.

  16. tudefit says: Jun 13, 2010 7:16 PM

    Childress is a goof. He caters to Favre – doing the not worthy bow daily – and then wants to fine the guy who was the man before Favre came. No problem with the fine if you make it for everyone.

  17. Milhouse says: Jun 13, 2010 7:17 PM

    The culture that Childress created when catering to Favre has led another team superstar to believe that he is above the rules. How could this possibly come as a surprise?
    Childress is a ninny.

  18. JimmySmith says: Jun 13, 2010 7:21 PM

    This is a joke, but then again, so is Childress. Peterson is laughing at Col Klink (as is the rest of the NFL) for huffing and puffing and threatening to blow the house down when the only think Klink is going to blow is BrINT Favre next time Favre comes to town.
    No wonder LT chose not to play in Minnesota, he recognizes dysfunctionality when he sees it.
    Klink loves to act for the camera, pretend like he’s in charge but with Favre now running the team, the only thing Klink gets to decide is whether the vending machine is stocked with Coke or Pepsi.

  19. bluestree says: Jun 13, 2010 7:22 PM

    Double Standard=Schism
    Can’t fine Peterson.
    By August he won’t be able to discipline anybody who’s not easily replaceable.

  20. robert ethen says: Jun 13, 2010 7:24 PM

    Petersen is working with the organizers to extend Adrian Petersen days to make it a several week event next year.

  21. robert ethen says: Jun 13, 2010 7:26 PM

    There were some very good reasons that Jesus’ mother Mary told him not to play with the kids over in East Palestine.

  22. robert ethen says: Jun 13, 2010 7:28 PM

    Every year a certain family celebrates Brett Favre Months (February to September) down in Hattiesburg, Miss.
    Brett doesn’t want to disappoint them by not attending all the events.

  23. Ambrose says: Jun 13, 2010 7:41 PM

    This is a power play, plain and simple.The Vikings do not dare fine Peterson. Peterson is wisely taking advantage of the special status awarded to Favre and telling them that he too is as special or more so. Favre has given them one lucky pull-it-out-of-his-ass season, and Peterson has given what…three..four? They better build at least two thrones in the locker room (if not more,) or this team will soon be known as The Los Angeles Schisms.

    Thank you for your recognition!!! And now that you asked my opinion, I think it’s really not much of a story. There are veteran players from every team that have chosen not to show up for OTA’s and mandatory minicamps. In all sports, when free agency came to be and the players started making 10 times the money that the managers/coaches make, it changed sports. Players realize that there isn’t a whole lot that coaches can do to them. Look at last year, Fisher , who I think is a terrific coach, didn’t want to play V. Young and Bud Adams ordered him to do so. Jerry Jones ordered Phillips to take Pacman and T.O. when they weren’t wanted, etc. etc. A couple of decades ago you hardly ever heard about the owner of a sports franchise but now days the owners and players have developed such egos that it is all about them!!

  25. toddm6d says: Jun 13, 2010 7:48 PM

    Childress is a master of psychology and 99% of the rubes who made posts in this thread are simple minded fools easily duped.
    That’s a fact.

  26. CheeseAttack says: Jun 13, 2010 8:02 PM

    I hate BrINT Farve. See that, I made a funny and called him BrINT Farve. That shows that even though my ex-hero took a huge wet dump on my head I don’t mind. Yup, it still does not bother me at all!!! In fact I’m quite funny by doing so. Watch this. BrINT Farve!. Ha Ha, did you see that! Now watch this. BrINT Farve is a BiQueen coached by Klink! Wow! I used BrINT, BiQueen, and Klink in the same sentence! ZING! Boy did I just show all those Viking Fans!!!
    GO PACK1

  28. mike says: Jun 13, 2010 8:13 PM

    The Vikings will fine him, they need to come up with all the money they can for a new stadium.

  29. 23 says: Jun 13, 2010 8:35 PM

    Most productive RB over the last 2 seasons. Yes, Chris Johnson had a monster season but was also the only legit offensive player on the team while the Vikings have any number of game changing players.
    As for the fine …. let’s just say that the Vikings may get that $10k now but ADP & his agent will make sure they add that on to his next contract.
    Remember to not be “penny wise and pound foolish”, Chilly.
    Perhaps next year Palestine, TX can double-check when the minicamps are for the Vikings before scheduling ADP Day next year ? Way to put your guy in a tough position. With friends like you …

  30. mattgso says: Jun 13, 2010 8:37 PM

    Fine him double…. you know because the vikes have that double standard.

  31. Mrsteve says: Jun 13, 2010 8:56 PM

    Peterson should be fined, he really let the team down with his performance in the NFC Championship. Yeah he had 100 yds & 3 td’s but Chester Taylor could have put up those same stats if he played against the Saints. Peterson fumbled 3 times. Yeah stats say 2 but that fumble charged to Farve on the 4 yd line was really Peterson’s fault. It was also a backbreaker. Way to live up to the promise he made after fumbling in OT against Chicago that he wasn’t going to fumble anymore. I like that idea of fining him $1000 for every fumble but it should be $5000. Also Peterson driving 120 mph was just another example of his failure to be focused last season. Now he is skipping mandatory minicamp to celebrate himself. Starting this year like he ended last. Selfishly. Fine him Childress. Johnson was the best RB in football last year by a wide margin.
    Oh yeah. One last thing. This Jimmysmith poster. He hates the Vikings but he posts on every single Vikings article. All of them. What a loser. Him & Boob Nelson.

  32. GRpatriot says: Jun 13, 2010 9:15 PM

    I know the Viking organization, the Viking players and Vikings fans do not have a problem with Brett not coming to camp but I have to pretend it bothers them because it bothers me. It used to bug me to no end when he did this same $hit with the Packers mostly because the Packers could not deal with it so now I’ll pretend it bothers the Vikings, even though it doesn’t. SCHISM!

    Oh – again, congratulations on beating the Pack last year. Obviously the 2 GREATEST victories in the history of the Queen franchise-LOL!
    Cheer up Queenies. BF and AP are just hiding out so they don’t have take their off-season PED pissinacup. They’ll be back to choke away another season next year!

  47. ChaseDowdle says: Jun 14, 2010 12:44 AM

    Why would you fine Peterson? He obviously has a reason for being out. He has been the face of the franchise for the past 3 seasons and the fans wouldn’t want to see it either. So what if he wants a contract? His fumble per carries ratio is better than Dickerson’s was his first three seasons.

  48. lebowski says: Jun 14, 2010 1:01 AM

    Sacktapping and ass slapping are the two ways Jared Allen entices Favre to come back. Let’s hope it works.

    Being a Packer fan I’m inherently a better football than any other fan in the NFL. Because of my team’s history I automatically know more about football, am a more dedicated fan, and am a better overall person than all other NFL fans. Especially Viking fans. How could it even be possible for someone that likes to root for another team than the Green Bay Packers that they don’t know that they are not as good as me just because. Idiots!!!

    The “smack” is because the vikes took a QB all you Hovan lovers proclaimed you hated. The same QB you called a prima donna. The same QB for which you mocked the Packers organization for tolerating.
    Now that you have this headache, all his antics are suddenly ok.
    Any team that was foolish enough to make this move would receive the same criticism.
    And yes, the Bears are the Packers’ biggest rival.

    This is an issue for a head coach to handle. Unfortunately, Minnesota doesn’t have a head coach- they have a bald member of #4’s entourage who makes his newly extended living suckling from the teat of everyone’s favorite good ‘ol boy.
    Can’t suddenly grow a backbone when your star RB defies you when you’re a jellyfish for Favre.

    ____________________________________
    The Bears ARE our rival. I hope they lose every game they play.
    However, the Bear FANS are simply too much like us to hate on effectively.
    They’re loyal. They sit in freezing temps and feet of snow when their team is down 30+ in the 4th. They don’t need extensions to buy up playoff tickets, and they don’t want or need a dome.
    They’re realistic. They don’t predict grandiose things every year when they clearly don’t have a shot at winning anything. When their GM sucks, they say he sucks. When they call a QB terrible for 17 years, they don’t want to sign him themselves and then recant and call him God.
    They’re successful. Nine championships in fact. I know, it’s not quite twelve, but it’s at least a close second, and far better than none.
    Of course we all hate the Bears, but how do you make fun of fans like that? We can’t, at least not without insulting ourselves in the process.
    And the fact that we have some of the most fairweather, delusional, jealous fans in the league, who have never won a damn thing in their history, yet still talk smack every year, makes it just too easy for us.

  58. Ruvell100 says: Jun 14, 2010 1:09 PM

    Beer Cheese nailed it on the Bears thing.
    Also, I can’t believe the hate for Peterson. He lost ONE (and a half) fumbles in the NFC Championship game, and ran for 150 and 3 TDs. Remember when he was Baby Jesus? Now he’s just another assclown who needs to get to camp while Favre sits on his tractor (which probably doesn’t exist, just another part of his good ol’ boy facade). As fake as a Vikings Championship trophy. As fake as a Vikings “sellout.”
    You’re a nothing franchise and a nothing fanbase. I would say you’re worthless, but that would mean you’re worth 0. According to the revenue sharing charts, you’re worth less than that, a drain on the NFL and real sports fans everywhere. Please tell me how “unclassy” that is, since the Minnesota Nice, Minnesota Ice folks define “class” a little differently.

    ============================
    Funny how all this “hatred” intensified when Favre signed on with the Vikes.
    Peopl are just not willing to admit that is the real reason why they hate the Vikings.
    If we are such a nothing team and fanbase, why waste all that hate on them and us?
    We should be insignificant to you, correct?
    But geez, the Bears and Packers are so much better because they won a combined 19 titles pre 1970.
    Your team has a great history, that just it, its history.
    Nope the Vikes haven’t won one.
    I just think its pathetic that all you packer fans cling to those titles.
    Congrats your team was a powerhouse before you were alive.
    WHats that have to do with today?
    not much.

  61. c.carterhof says: Jun 14, 2010 2:05 PM

    I could be wrong here, but didnt the Packers go without a postseason victory from 68 to 93? Then Favre bailed you guys out, and now you hate the guy?
    During my growing up years the Packers were a joke. I had a good friend who was a Buc fan, and if one of our teams lost to GB…you hung your head in shame! Didnt even want to show up for school.

  62. TheBaySay says: Jun 14, 2010 4:13 PM

    I’m pretty sure the Packers won a playoff game in the strike-shortened year – too lazy to look up the actual date. But anyway, yes it was a dry spell to be sure. It is almost unbelievable that a team could go 36 years without winning a World title, I agree. Still, we remember the good parts of our history, and we have to own up to the not-so-good parts as well. But I am glad we have good, championship parts to remember.

    Okay, Chicken. We can do it your way. Let’s leave out “ancient history”. Let’s talk about all the championships your team has won, only in the last 14 years. Or you’d rather just do ten? Five maybe?
    It doesn’t matter, because the answer will always be the same. As for last year? Yeah, you beat us twice in the regular season. I congratulated you all at the time, and I’ll do it again. However, is anyone gonna give a damn about those two regular season wins ten years from now? I highly doubt it.
    In this league, every year, there is only one winner. One winner, and 31 losers. So, what happened during last season, the last season you are so proud of?
    You lost.
    It’s okay, no shame. We lost too, and under very similar circumstances to boot. The difference is, you don’t see all of us on here bragging about our recent playoff failure, or our regular season record, as though it was some great accomplishment.
    It isn’t. Regular season wins don’t mean anything. Fourteen years from now, even ten, no one will remember them whatsoever. Or maybe you’d like to only go five?

    Exactly Beer.
    Thanks bud for proving my point.
    No one cares about any of the titles that GB won before any of us were born either.
    Except you and your Packer bro’s. Its your fall back for when the Pack isnt as good as the Vikes.
    You see, its a double standard you Pack fans have going.
    When the Pack beats the Vikes, we have to hear about that. Then if the Vikes are better, you revert back to how many titles.
    Its asinine, it’s like arguing with a 3 year old.
    Packer fans are the biggest hypocrites in all of fandom.

    Proving your point? You need to read over what I said again. I said nobody cares about REGULAR SEASON wins ten years later. The regular season means nothing. It only serves as a qualifier, a means to reach the next level.
    Championships are not regular season wins. Championships are forever, and no one can take them away from you. The most hardcore fans will likely not remember who won the Monday Night game on week 13 back in 1999, but even a casual NFL observer knows who won each of the first five Super Bowls, even though they occurred “before they were born”.
    Do we care that you beat us twice last season? Maybe a little bit, but clearly not as much as you do.
    In the end, both of our teams failed to deliver. The fact that you outlasted us by one game, and two weeks, doesn’t really mean much. The Saints won last year. No one else did. The Colts, the Vikings, Pack, Steelers, Rams, everyone else all failed in the end.
    Congratulations. You managed to fail miserably a little later than we did. Will that fact be remembered, even in the NEAR future? Of course not.
    I don’t blame you for hanging your hat on regular season wins though. As many have said here, they’re all you have. Years like 2009 and 1998, even though they ended in complete failure, and are completely historically irrelevant, are still the high water marks of your franchise.
    If anything, I feel sorry for you.

    Dont feel sorry for me. I’m not hanging my hat on any regular season wins.
    You are completely missing the point(as usual).
    Packer fans are the only ones who brag about thier prehistoric titles.
    I feel sorry for you that you can’t comprehend what I’m saying.
    No one gives a crap if the packers won in 1921,42, 61 or whatever.
    It’s irrelevant to the modern day. You pukes just want to live in the long ago past, because that is when the Pack was any good.
    I feel that you are living a little to vicariously through the franchise, your inclusion of the words we and us proves this out.
    If your well being is tied into a sports franchise, I indeed feel sorry for you.
    There is way more to life than sports.
    I’ll give super credit, you are one dumb s.o.b.
    I didn’t see it at 1st, but I do now.
    Your reading comprehension leaves a lot to be desired. Either that, or you are willfully ignorant.
    I don’t know which is worse.

    You ARE hanging you hat on regular season wins, how else do you get that the Vikings are currently a better team than the Packers? They didn’t meet in the playoffs..
    You want to keep comparing the two teams last year, and yet neither one had anything to show for it when the season was over. What exactly happened that you are so proud of? I must have missed it.
