View Full Version : Childress serious about letting reporters take part in a 9-on-7...

Childress, slightly amused and mildly annoyed by how the media portrayed his training-camp practices as not being very physical, challenged a member of the press to take part in a 9-on-7 inside running drill. This challenge came while the Vikings were in Mankato.

While I did throw out Mark Craig’s name at the time, Childress evidently didn’t hear me because on Tuesday he said no one had accepted or nominated someone for the challenge. And then Childress said a freelance journalist from New Jersey had faxed in a letter and wanted to participate in a practice.

Craig, to his credit, first asked what type of contract he would get if he accepted and then said he would have to check with the people who run his front office — actually, just his wife — to see if he could give it a go. Meanwhile, it sounds as if Alexander Alperin of Upper Saddle River, N.J., has some publications interested in buying his story about what it would be like to practice with the Vikings. One word comes to mind Alexander: painful.

Sounds like he really does want some local media types to take part in a practice to show them how "easy" the team has had it...
That's awesome!

The hacks might actually learn something about the game they cover.
Well, maybe.

The difference between me and the hacks is that I know something about football and know that I am not good enough to play.

They on the other hand probably have never even played sandlot ball and think they can play.

LOL! The truth has been spoken.
I loved seeing that little guy from the NFL network trying to throw or punt a football. Adam Shefter or something like that I think. Hillarious.
I also get a charge out of watching boxing announcers who haven't been in a fight since some girl beat them up in the third grade. Real credibility.

This is pretty pointless... just because he'll put a journalist through his training doesn't make it anymore rigorous, it simply means that a Sports Journalist... with no NFL experience, will get tossed around a bit in an NFL practice... no shit...

It still doesn't prove that Chilly's practices aren't soft... which they are by NFL standards.

well the hacks feel they know enough about NFL standards to make judgements on the practices. So let them experience practices and at least then their reports would have a tad more credibility. As ever though it's easy to sit and pass judgement when not having any experience - bit like posting on here at times

As much as I have my disliking for a lot of sports writers I'm pretty sure many of them played high school ball or were actively involved in sports.
With that out of the way I also have to ask why does one have to have had played the sport to understand or report on the sport?
I guess there are plenty of good reporters in different fields who have never done what they've reported on before and still do an outstanding job.
Apparently if you went to a big school or didn't get into sports or were too small to really play sports early in life you can no longer get into or report on sports. Passion and a little knowledge can go a long way for any good journalist(which there are some out there).

And Marr if you know so much more about football then go out and start writing for a sports section in your spare time.

As for the practice thing, it's dumb.
Yes lets get a bunch of out of shape reporters and show how "tough" practice is.
I have nothing against his practice style, I just think it's dumb to think that it proves anything.
You could get Andy Reid to be in a 9 on 7 drill and even having a head coach be worn out by the "tough" practice won't prove it's merits.
Silly.

Wow, never seen that one.
Little ole Clayton vs the former NFL QB Salisbury.
According to the sports hack theory Salisbury should be a much better writer/annalist since he used to play.
Once again it's not about if you played or not, it's about being a good reporter and knowing your stuff.
Makes you wonder how ESPN could ever handle losing that POS Salisbury.

How so?
You are going on a assumption just like I am going on a assumption.
I contend that most of these guys went to schools that had tryouts and only the best made the team.
That alone would carve out at least (a assumption) 75% of them.
Of those, probably 2% got a scholarship that would have predicated that they take up some sort of pretend major like communications or something like that.

When have you ever seen me ever claim that I am "All knowing" when it comes to football my friend.


Watch closely, I think you will see me use the word "Yutz" more times in ref to myself than anyone.
I'll stick to getting published in a area that is my forte my friend and not something out of my league.

And Marr if you know so much more about football then go out and start writing for a sports section in your spare time.

I hear my friend and can even understand the rationale behind as they are short some players (8 I believe) and need to protect them a bit, however, can't we think back just a few years ago when teams had 120 people on thier roster?

Long story short, I undertand it, I just don't agree with it.
Players need to be in shape and they need to be in game shape.
There is a difference.
If they aren't in shape in both areas we will see crappy ball not only from poor ball control but from watching backups as well as the starters start to get dinged.
