In what we hope will be the final chapter of the Adrian Peterson Football Camp story, Peterson himself has offered an apology for the fact that he’s not attending the camp.
“I want to apologize to all the fans about the confusion regarding the camp in Norman,” Peterson said in a statement issued to the Associated Press through his agent. “I hosted camps in Palestine and Tyler, Texas, last week that went great. Due to ProCamps misunderstanding of my schedule, I was never able to host this year’s Norman camp on their scheduled dates, but look forward to being back in 2012.”
Kids aged 7-14 have paid $199 to attend the camp, which takes place today and tomorrow. Yesterday the camp announced that Peterson wouldn’t attend, saying Peterson had chosen to take part in an NFL Network taping instead. When NFL Network said that excuse was bogus, the camp organizers admitted Peterson’s absence had nothing to do with NFL Network, and said it was the fault of the company running the camp, not Peterson.
The camp will go on, but those who no longer want to attend without Peterson there can get refunds.
