Well this is good news:
Vikings' Harvin returns, has 'great' practice
Minnesota Vikings' Percy Harvin returns, has 'great' practice - ESPN
This was definitely an odd 72 hours if I do say. It seemed like just yesterday he "wanted out" of Minnesota, and today things are fine. I have no freaking clue if this is just the media blowing things out of proportion or what but I must admit I'm confused. Like most happenings in the NFL (and all major pro sports for that matter) the public is never really truly going to know what's going on. I'm agnostic as to whether or not this whole charade was about money, playing time, scheme, who the quarterback is, Jared Allen's hairstyle, animals escaping from the Duluth Zoo after the flood...whatever. Pro athletes pull this crap all the time. As long as he shuts up and brings it to camp and is giving 100% on gameday that's all I care about. I just wish pro athletes would have some respect and class every now and again. That's a whole other thread I'm afraid, but on topic I just hope Frazier, Spielman and the front office work and smooth over whatever "issues" there are so our top receiver is at camp and ready to play.

B) hmmm, perhaps you can elaborate on point #2
C) re: point #3, it is naive to think contract is the only issue, and equally naive to think it is not part of the issue.
Regardless, he needs to get back to work...
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent
As a matter of fact, I do know

Did the Vikings wait until the 6th year of AD's contract before locking him down? Nope, they locked him up after completing year 4 of a 6 year contract.

It's rare that a good team with a good QB in place makes a Big Move like what it would take for us to get decent value for Harvin. Way more likely a mediocre team with plenty questions makes a big trade.
And, seems pretty obvious to me, that we'd rather have the Browns or Dolphin's first round pick than say, the Packers or Patriots!Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

I don't blame Harvin one bit. Not because I'm a big fan of "whiners", but because I think our team is headed in the wrong direction in almost every conceivable way.
1: I believe our Owner is one of the most moronic in sports - and is allowing himself and his brothers to destroy our franchise through their continued meddling.
2: I have serious doubts about the quality of our New GM - I am leaning heavily towards the "What the floop were they thinking!!!" camp.
3: I do NOT believe our HC is worth a turd. That goes double for his staff selections.
4: I do not have great confidence in our current starting QB.
5: I do not believe we have the foundation to build a successful team, nor do I believe we are even remotely close to getting even to that point.
If Harvin wants out, I can't blame him. I would too.
