Love the attitude, but that's the works of the NFL and the big business that comes with it...

His attitude is great, but I think its kind of silly that they won't let him attend. I realize the decision comes down from powers higher than the Packers FO, but this is a shame...

In the business of football the football should come first... unfortunately I feel like that idea is starting to go away. Without the game there is no product. No product no marketability. No marketability no exposure. I realize this isn't that big of a deal, but at the rate this is going (the NFL Network, limited exposure of games on that network, promotions over practice) it may get very interesting...

Here's a compromise for the NFLPA - let Faneca go to the damn premiere event in Jackson's place since he doesn't seem to want to attend practice and let this kid go to the Packers' minicamp where he belongs and actually wants to be. There's even an extra 12 Gs in it for you, Alan.

I like the kid's mentatlity though - he knows what was important and what was not.
