RandBall: Sounds like Freeman had some coaching during his press conference

Hat tip right off the bat to City Pages on this one. We listened to last night's conference call featuring Vikings GM Rick Spielman and new QB Josh Freeman as it happened.

 

Nothing was terribly unusual about it. In fact, we found Freeman to be quite well-spoken.

City Pages gave it a closer listen, however -- the playback was available via the Vikings -- and found three instances in which Spielman was giving his new QB some coaching on what to say. The sweet whispers can be heard around the 14:30 mark, 16:30 and again at 26:30 on this recording.

Now, there is nothing scandalous about a GM trying to direct the message on a few occasions. It's just rather amusing. Please have a listen for yourself.
