“Roy asked me, I don’t remember what day it was, whatever day it was, it was probably a week and a half something like that ago,” Mitrione said. “I just never, I had a bunch of other things going on. It felt like a little bit of a distraction, I just wasn’t able to.

I have no problem with being tested, people can come and test me whenever they want. It’s a couple weeks out on my training camps, I was so intent on getting my blinders put on, I cut my career off, I canceled my Twitter. I didn’t want distractions on somewhat short notice, cutting a couple weeks out of my camp … I wanted to make sure I didn’t have any issues couldn’t distract me.

Actually it wasn’t that big of a deal, you know, I asked him and its either a yes or no question and that’s all I can do is ask for it and you either take it or you don’t,” said Nelson. “You know, so far I’m 0 for 2.”
