    Dontarrious Thomas enjoyed business program

    [size=13pt]Thomas enjoyed business program[/size]

    Author: Mike Wobschall, vikings.com
    MAY 21, 2007

    Vikings linebacker Dontarrious Thomas was one of 116 players to take part in the NFL Business Management and Entrepreneurial Program this offseason. Along with Thomas, four other Vikings players took part in the program.

    "I enjoyed the program and it gave me, along with a lot of other players, the chance to dive into some of the issues we discussed," Thomas said. "The program does a great job of allowing us to be a little more hands on with some of the real estate issues and things of that nature. I already had an interest in that area and the program really feeds that interest and helped me learn more about it."

    Thomas and safety Tank Williams attended the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania to focus on real estate. Tight end Jeff Dugan attended the Harvard Business School, fullback Tony Richardson attended the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and linebacker Ben Leber attended the Stanford Graduate School of Business.

    The program is part of an ongoing NFL-NFLPA initiative to assist players in preparing for their post-playing careers. Last year, 112 NFL players participated at the four business schools. In the program's first season (2005), 66 players participated at Harvard Business School and the Wharton School.

    The four schools offered executive education activities in their respective areas of expertise.

    Here's an idea;

    If you don't like it [size=13pt]DON'T FUCKING READ IT!![/size]

    It's the offseason & if it's posted on Vikings.com, I going to post it. You may not care, but others might.

    I'm not going to sit here any pick & choose which articles to post, simply because you might not think it's news.

    End of discussion!

    Is this what got him sent to hell, and a 14 day ban?

    LMAO

    What a way to go out no bang, no flash, just a grease stain under the pain train.
