The roll call is in."Vrabel!""Here!" "Waters!" "Here!"

So they showed up after all, thus ending days of speculation on whether or not Mike Vrabel and Brian Waters would show up for the first day of mandatory training camp at the Arrowhead practice facility.

Shouldn't we have learned our lesson by now? After the way new general manager Scott Pioli handled the firing of Herman Edwards and the hiring of Todd Haley with nary a peep coming from within the organization. Nary a peep was heard, unless it came out of the mouth of Mr. Pioli.

So shouldn't we have been skeptical when all these rumors floated around that Brian Waters and Mike Vrabel were considering not showing up for the first mandatory workout of the season? I don't remember Scott Pioli saying, at any time, that could be the case.

So Vrabel and Waters have showed up, and all is well in Kansas City.

"Super Bowl Championship!" "Here?"
