Well, it's pretty clear the Vikings didn't consult with the NFL's Most Valuable Player before making today's Percy Harvin trade.
Running back Adrian Peterson, the guy who nicknamed Harvin "Mighty Mouse" during Harvin's NFL Rookie of the Year season in 2009, took to Twitter to voice his shock and disappointment with the news that Harvin had been traded to Seattle for first- and seventh-round picks this year and a mid-round pick in 2014.
The best all around player I ever seen or you'll ever see! Goes to Seattle! I feel like I just got kicked in the stomach. Several times!!!— Adrian Peterson (@AdrianPeterson) March 11, 2013
For the record, that's five exclamation points of surprise/anger from the face of the franchise. This won't affect Peterson's preparation for the 2013 season, but the Vikings might want to sit down with their best player and 'splain what went down and why.
