If you are here, then you are probably a Vikings fan. Jerome Felton has apologized to fans for his DWI from last weekend.
Ergo, if you are reading this, then Jerome Felton has apologized to you.
Here is the full comment made by Felton on his McDonald’s DWI situation:
“Everybody on this team and in this organization has been good to me and the fans have been great. I love it here. I can’t put myself in negative situations that don’t have a positive impact on the team and the community. That’s something that’s very important to me and I just want to sincerely apologize to the fans, No. 1, the organization and everybody around the Vikings.”
Pro football fans do not always get apologies from their players following screw ups, mainly because an apology is an admission of guilt. Strangely, both Felton and Justin Blackmon of the Jaguars decided to proactively apologize to their teams and their fans for driving while intoxicated.
Felton is believed to have the inside track on the starting fullback position in Minnesota, but he may have a lot of work to do to gain back the trust of the coaching staff.
“We talked about some things when we got together for our first OTAs in our meetings about how we wanted to conduct ourselves,” Leslie Frazier said. “Then when a new guy comes to the club and he’s a veteran guy and something happened like it did over the weekend, it’s very disappointing. It’s something we’ll have to deal with and have to address, but you don’t want that to drown out all of the good things that some of our players are doing and what they’re doing in the community.”
