Proceeding as normal at practice after two days of drama, the latest mood swing left some head-scratching.

Get rid of this guy while you can or the cancer will spread.

Harvin iis listening to whispers from randy moss, it's too bad today's athletes don't act their age and live up to their contracts and just play to win. The fans suffer through this bs all the time. What a crock of bologna.

I beleive that Percy is a good enough player that he deserves better pay....With that being said he is going about it the wrong way...Who knows what his agent is telling him to do....Be a team player...

It's not his agent, but it may be Agent Green talking to him. Paranoia will Destroy Ya

Let Dayton and RT take care of Percy. One conversation with those 2 and Percy will beg to be able to go back to Ziggy for negotiations.

He wants to play for a team that doesn't suck...what's wrong with that?

Jensterger is right...I hate to say it but obviously Percy is seeing another dismal season ahead..is it the coaching staff...the player personal? As once stated, he sees his most productive years going down with a franchise that needs a lot of improvement.. Granted give him enough money ala Peterson etc..and they'll suffer thru it....

Try to work it out. Losing your 2nd best offensive player isn't the best thing to do. This guy has done everything asked of him. He has played running back, returned kicks and is a very good receiver. He plays his butt off when he plays. We have no idea if he is a cancer on the team. The Vikes are rebuilding and this year maybe another losing season, but hopefully it will be an improving season. That is what Vikes fan's should be hoping for. Hopefully a better offensive line, another year of improvement for Ponder and one more good draft will create a good YOUNG team ready for the playoffs like the Lions and Packers. 2009 was a team built for one year with older guys from other teams. This team needs to be built from the ground up with the young guys. Getting rid of one of the youngest and most talented would be a mistake. The Packers, Steelers and Patriots have shown drafting and developing young talent is the way to go. Now is not the time to get rid of guys like Harvin. I think it would be a huge mistake. Don't make a quick decision which the Vikes would end up regretting in the long run.

He starts all this by offering UNSOLICITED comments after practice about how he is unhappy with a number of issues here then goes AWOL for the next days practice altogether, and now has the gall to exclaim he doesn't understand where all these "crazy" reports are coming from? Percy, what are you smoking???!!!
