    Is Tice at fault for the lack of discipline on the team?

    The truth is drugs are a problem in all facets of this country and sports are not exempt from it.
    I expect him to get the players in trouble. Like with EJ, he should have done something to him (he did nothing). Same with K. Willliams. I think it would help tremendously with team discipline if he did something to either of them, show the players that doing drugs and DUI's are unacceptable under him. Right now he's not doing that.

    Just look at how many times there have been substance abuse related incidents in the last year. Onterrio with his pot (happened in college, and it's back again). EJ's drunk driving (second time it happened to him). Mixon's drunk driving (hat this problem when he came from Miami, then gets 2 DUI's up here). K Will's drunk driving. The problem is with 3 out of these 4 guys, Tice knew that they had substance abuse problems when he put them on the team. What does he do about it? NOTHING. Look what happens. They get in trouble again. I don't care if they are grown adults. Tice needs to do something about it, because this comes back to hurt team discipline. Players get the preception that they can run around and smoke dope, and Tice will do nothing about it. That's unacceptable.

    This is the one problem I have with Tice.

    You needed to have a "somewhat" category on the poll. Is he totally at fault? NO. Adults can make their own choices. However, he IS at fault for CONSTANTLY surrounding himself with players who routinly make bad choices- ala Moss, Smith, etc.

    That was a typo by me, I edited it.
    *edit*-did you just change my words when you quoted me?

    Also, Byron Chamberlian needs to be added to the list. It's gotten to the point where Tice needs to show some athourity and do something about this. What has he done so far? NOTHING. He has to do something to stop this problem of substance abuse on our team.

    these guys make there own choices. im just glad that tice does not seem to play favorites like denny did. regardless of who it is there should be team penalties for this kind of garbage. i think overall he hurt himself with this one. he had a chance to shine over bennett. too bad.

    The thing is Tice can influence these choices. So far he has not chosen to do so.

    I would have to assume that these guys know that the coach as well as the rest of the team are down on them for screwing up. And I assume there are things going on that are not in the press. The fact that they are missing games from suspensions is a pretty big deal. I doubt that it is accurate to say that nothing is being done.

    you can influence at some point but then they are on there own, i'm sure of it that tice has stressed the fact of staying out of trouble, we dont know what he has said to people like EJ and K.Williams, i'm sure he has them behaving if not they need to be cut or traded.

    The fact is u can only influence them so far after that there own little ego takes affect "ow i play for the vikings i can do whatever i want"

    Onterrio may grow out of this little stage, I talked to one of his high school teachers he said he was an unbalievable football player but acedemically he wasnt so great and sometimes was in trouble, I hope he can get past this and be our back up RB

    There's a slight - and by slight I mean gargantuan difference between Mike Tice and Bill Parcells.

    EJ, Mixon, etc, get drunk, drive, suspended, etc. They come back and play.

    Quincy Carter fails a drug test? GONE.

    That's what Tice should have done.

    Maybe they knew there was a problem with Onterrio and that might be why they took Moore in this years draft. Maybe Onterrio will not be on this team long term?
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.
