The Minnesota Vikings front office staff has no heart or at the very least bereavement days available to ball players. Vikings wide receiver, Troy Williamson’s pay has been docked $25,588 for missing three practices and last Sunday’s game to attend the funeral of his grandmother in Aiken, SC. Read the story HERE. He is also dealing with a situation where is brother is in a coma after a car accident.
So a player is penalized financially for putting “family” first. What a shame.
