    Re: Rookies get lukewarm endorsement from Childress

    This is the worst reporting I have seen here.

    If you go to the official Vikings NFL website and read the news releases regarding the minicamp, you will see that this guy talked to less than one single soul.
    He simply took what was on their website and spun his own version of it.

    My interpretation of the same information would be titled; Childress has more to look at than rookies at second minicamp.

    Lukewarm to me is a negative term.

    I didn't sense anything lukewarm about his comments regarding rookies.

    He seemed like a man who was still pretty busy learning more important things;like how good is his new team. Like where are it's strengths and where are it's weaknesses. He now has a little time to watch tape on the rookies and work with them before training camp. A lot of the rookies will stay until training camp.

    He seemed very realistic with regard to comments about rookies.

    He didn't come off as lukewarm or negative in my mind.He seemed rather optimistic with a grounded sense of reality.

    This reporter will have to prove himself to me.

    This article sucks!
    Kinda harsh, don't you think? Childress didn't grant solo interviews to anyone - so this guy had to take what was given (press briefings) and write something because that's his job.

    I think "lukewarm" is a fine description of what was said.

    =Z=

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Eh.. All we're doing is splitting hairs.

    Childress didn't jump out and say "I LOVE CHAD GREENWAY, RYAN COOK AND TARVARIS JACKSON!", nor did he say "I HATE CHAD GREENWAY, RYAN COOK AND TARVARIS JACKSON!" So it's all open to interpretation.
