    FSN new 1/2 hour Viking show from camp.

    I have watched every episode of the Fox Sports North new 1/2 hour daily training camp show, and I am sorry to say I am very disappointed in the content so far.

    It has to much fluff and the same story angles that the local news is doing! Yesterday the 1st day of contact drills and WCCO channel 4 locally had more footage of contact in it's 1.5 minute segment than Fox had in a 1/2 hour.

    They have been doing stories that if you are a year long fan and have follow the Vikes you have read and seen 5 or 6 times already. They do not show a lot on new players like Tank, Leber, Hicks it is all interviews with the stars of the team or backup QB's (there are other positions) and I get all that from the 10 o'clock news.

    To many interviews with easy questions, I want vidoe footage of practice and I want interviews with players that aren't the stars and observation on how that player is doing.

    So far on a scale of 1 to 10 I give them a 3 and 1/2 and that sucks from what I was expecting!


    Sorry I had to vent!

    Atleast you get to watch it. Living in Madison Wi I don't see any decent news coverage. The only chance I get to see coverage on T.V. is on ESPN and there coverage always sucks because it's so short lived.

    I haven't caught an episode yet. I'd like to check it out...What time is it on?

    I suppose I could browse back through the old threads in hopes of finding out, but maybe somebody could be kind enough to just tell me? :smile:

    And if you have not seen it yet you have not missed much.

    i just prefer watching rosens sports sunday once a week, thats a pretty good show to get training camp updates from
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    I biitch about it and then they have the exact kind of show I was expecting. They had a bunch of good videos and interviews with the defense today and went over new players and positions.

    K-Will looks to be in much better shape than last year when he had a gut, he looked really fit and was moving quickly.

    Huddle up (name of the show) I salute you for today's show and hope that this becomes the standard not the exception.


    They had interviews with Tank, Leber, Sharper, Winfield, Smith, Smoot and Thomlin.

    I like how their blonde reporter gal wears these shoes that are somewhat flat bottom but lift her heals 5 inches up to make her taller. It's comical to watch her try to walk across the sidelines with out falling.
