Minicamp Schedule For This Week

Posted by Mike Wobschall on June 18, 2012 – 6:38 am

The Vikings will conclude their nine-week offseason program this week by holding a mandatory three-day minicamp at Winter Park that will begin on Tuesday and finish on Thursday. Coaches and players will be available twice per day, so you’ll hear quite a bit about the Vikings over the next three days or so.

On Tuesday and Wednesday the Vikings will have a morning walk-thru followed by an afternoon practice. On Thursday the Vikings will forgo the walk-thru and instead hold practice in the morning.

We’ll of course have wall-to-wall coverage of this week’s minicamp right here on That coverage will be in addition to our normal weekly features such as the Monday Morning Mailbag, the Wobcast, Pick 6, and more. In case you missed it, check out last week’s practice highlight video by clicking here.

Also last week, we went one-on-one with 1st-round picks Matt Kalil and Harrison Smith, so be sure to check those out while you’re waiting for more Vikings action this week.

    Looking forward to the Kalil and Harrison interviews…

    M Wobs…Is there some kind of commentary limit set up ???

    Some of your Viking blog faithful have ran into problems trying to make more than a couple comments…Just wondering ??

    Although I am very excited about the offseason progress of the team. The blog is more focused on the posting issues than the team. It is an obvious problem as many regular bloggers have made complaint. It is a distraction to the conversation about the team. Mike W please sort this out and return the blog site to what it was before these issues came up. To deny the issue doesn’t exist is an insult to the fans. If you are going to change how the blog works then come out and state it. I have yet to experience an issue, but it is definately a distraction. Thank You.

    The Kalil and Harrison interviews are in the video section. All the good stuff is in the audio and video area. Mike doesn’t seem to care much about the the blog or what the fans what from the blog anymore.

    You will have to test out the commentary limit yourself… I don’t think Wobby cares enough to address it.

    @carlk I think that with so many regular bloggers complaining about the issue that Mike W would definatley care about it. From the exchanges I have had with him I don’t see any malace toward responding to any issue. This blog is provided as a service to us customers as we are the ones buying Vikings Tickets and merchandise. It makes no sense to alienate your customer by ignoring an issue that truly exists. It is well over time to respond to the issue and provide a resolution one way or the other.

    I tried that other blog, and it does not work for me. I mean I can’t get on to it!

    Mike B is right, Wobschall need to find someone who can fix this blogsite, or start a new one.

    Start a new blogsite Mike Wobschall, if this one cannot be fixed!

    I’m hoping he holds a bit in and refrains from injuring any teammates, then unleashes it in pre-season.

    I don’t know why all these people are complaining about the blog. They don’t really specify what the problems are. Personaly I love the job that Mike W has been doing. I get more Viking info from this site than anywhere else and the videos and interviews that we see here are awesome. So whoever is griping about this blog PLEASE find something legitimate to complain about or go follow the bears!

    @Johnny The people that have made complaints are regular bloggers here and I am sure the problem is real. I haven’t expeirence a problem either, but many have. As a good customer service provider, you need to address the issue and correct it to the customer’s satisfaction or provide a new set of rules to the blog.

    I don’t care which is done, but get a resolution.

    Something LEGITIMATE ???????? OK, how about the fact that after 7 or 8 entries, you are CUT OFF from posting for several hours or until the next day ??? Try it, you will see just HOW LEGITIMATE our complaints are.

    novasotiavike, reallyyy??? That sounds like a fix to me rather than a problem. Some of these regulars could use some posting restriction. I don’t need to scroll down thru 6 posts by 1 guy looking for attention by making every sentence a post.

    You have something to say about the VIKINGS than type up a nice paragraph with your opinion and post it for others to read. It’s not necessary to bombard the blog with spam if your bored or just want attention.

    If you (not you directly novasotiavike) want to share non-Viking related YouTube videos than go play on Facebook. Otherwise, keep it Viking football related and use paragraphs. Sounds like Mike W. is doing a good job.

    Ok Rudso, it’s September, in the 4th quarter of a close game and EVERYBODY is on here with their predictions, hopes, fears and analysis (I know, I’ve seen it for the last 2 years). All of a sudden, you’re cut off from the group’s conversation for NO REASON. Is that a “nice enough paragraph with my opinion” ????????

    maybe what is happening, is an attempt to filter out cry baby bloggers like Rock Salt. Rudso gives an opinion, and you shoot it down by using harsh language, like a third grader. Then when someone else, (me) calls you out and gives a taste of your own medicine, you cry louder and use even harsher language. Grow the freak up you losers.

    If that is the case, do the fans not at least deserve an explanation confirming that ? Why the “silent treatment” and denials ??

  24. By Vikingsfool on Jun 18, 2012 | Reply

    I agree Nova. To me it’s obvious, the reason for limiting comments, but the vikingcom brass really ought to come out and say it. If you look back at the last blog before the rules came into effect, it is full of vulgar comments from most of the regular bloggers(including myself). I feel the only real way to stop the censorship is to do as Titus says, just keep blogging. To take it a step further, we really need to start blogging like adults. Respect the rules and eachother and maybe something will change.

    What happened rocksalt, did I hit a nerve?

    novascotiavike, your right maybe the fans on this site deserve a heads up or an explanation but if your a regular you shouldn’t be surprised. I check these boards frequent because I enjoy actual Viking football talk and I’m sure everyone remembers the non-stop spamming before the draft.

    No one is to blame than the guys who would copy-paste DRAFT KALIL 2012! over and over until you have to scroll thru 10 posts to get to 1 that was actually on topic.

    Vikingsfool said it best, “we really need to start blogging like adults”. Some regulars could use this advice. Just saying…
