"Tracking the heat
The Vikings this year have new technology to help battle the heat and related illnesses. Vikings training staff are now able to wirelessly monitor players' body temperature while they practice. The players swallow a pill which contains a sensor that transmits a signal to staff telling them what the core temperature of the player is."

Just the tip of the ice berg, pretty soon employers will have ways to monitor your every move with a pill. hmmmmm. Great idea for the safety
of the guys, just hope it doesn't lead to invasions into our personnel lives.
Paranoid hmmmmmmm.... not, just too much si-fi channel.

Yeah, I read about these pills a couple weeks ago. It said that there were a couple of teams already doing it including jacksonville. I am very glad that the vikes decided to implement them.

Imagine the trainer that would have to give that pill! What am I thinking? They'd probably make the rookies administer it! :lol:

That is pretty cool. I can't believe all the technology stuff they have now.

It is pretty awesome. I think the reason we are doing this before a lot of other teams are is because we lost Big K four years ago. I still miss that guy, rest in peace Big K.
