    There is alot of repetition on this blog.

    I commented about the 6 to 1 vote for the Arden Hills Football Site about a month ago.

    We should be writing letters to the powers that be.

    I just saw an article about a fan in Cleveland who is suing the NFL.

    I thought you were concerned about the stadium?

    I agree with Fredrick Jones. The stadium is the biggest issue the Vikings have. It won’t matter how the Minnesota Vikings do in the next few years if they turn out to be the LA Vikings.

    We need to pursue Moss with the same passion we pursued Favre– put up billboards, scream, chant, shout!!!!
    MOSS— Come home!!! Finish where you started!!! Bring the first Superbowl victory to the Minnesota Vikings!!!

    It’s about time the fans form their own union. Does anybody know how to get that started? Just think of how much weight a consumer’s union has the potential to pull. We could threaten to not buy tickets, convince the local TV stations not to cary football programming, and start watch ingthe CFL all year long. Obviously we wouldn’t be able to get close to the entire fanbase on-board, but a big enough union would definitely have a noticable impact on the revenue that owners would have to pay attention to.

    @Colby – Harvin’s migraines did not change his playing time nearly as much as you are supposing. He has played 29 of the 32-games that he was an NFL pro. Heck, Adrian Peterson missed two-games this year to Percy’s one. Yes, his migraines have made him miss a lot of practices, but he almost always is ready for game-day. Plus the team doctors have been working with him and are continuing to make his head less of a problem.

    I think your idea of an NFLfansUnion is a great idea.

    How would we get it off the ground?

    Do we need a celebrity spokesperson?

    It is a realistic idea IF we can figure out a way to get it started !

    I think the first thing to do, and do quickly, would be to start our own fanbase website– discussing this on an NFL site is not the wisest move— we need a presence on the web.

    to do it you would need enough funding to get the ufl broadcasted on national tv. and to promote it.

    if they don’t draft a QB with there pick at 12 they need to look at getting ridd of spielman.. he just a good talker, i think he’s a joke!!!

    Im wondering why people still believe the NFL will somehow manage to put a team in LA. How is this feat going to happen? California is writing IOUs to their state employees, they certainly arent in a position to drop any money on a new stadium.

    The private sector is going to want the lions share of any profits that a new stadium will generate, so the would nullify any real reason for a team to move there.

    The only remaining option would be for the team owners to pay for the stadium themselves. If the Wolfs would rather buy their own stadium in LA rather than here, then I say God Bless them.

    So please, can we stop pretending that the Vikings actually have an option to move?

    Sign Bill Parcells, stadium in L.A. is under construction, who in there right mind would sign Randy Moss?

  19. By Remember Met Stadium on Mar 28, 2011 | Reply

    Right, the stadium is under construction. Private sector money. Like I said….

    NFL owners are going to want a bigger slice of the pie than the private sector is going to want to give up. Mark my words. If anyone moves to LA (and frankly, at this point I seriously doubt it) it will be Jacksonville.

    Stadiums over time do pay high dividend back it is just most people look at the first cost.Minnesota will lose big if a stadum gets lost in this years business.Plus if it has a roof it will host many other events.So the Wilf need to step up and help get this done.GO VIKES

    I am so tired of these players and owners!!!!! Who is going to lose in the end? THE FANS!!! I understand that this is a business, but guess who pays their salaries? US!!!!!!! I swear if there is a lockout this year…I am done with the NFL. I have been a season ticket holder for over 10 years…but I am done!!!

    Glad to hear that he still wants to pick best available. Please stick to this, and don’t cave into what certain higher-ups and fans think we need. I want our offensive and defensive line to get back to where it was two seasons ago. I am fully confident that if we can get our o-line back up to par that Webb could make a go of it next season and lead our team through at least a somewhat successful season, and we can worry more about CBs and WRs (granted we probably need someone to give us a little more depth at the position, maybe Nevada’s Colin K?), and put off QBs until after we see what Webb can do with a full season. Heck, if he doesn’t work out we’ve lost what, a season that will probably be shortened anyway, and we’d complain that our sixth round pick didn’t work out at the QB position when we’d still have the possibility of making him into a decent WR.

    Just my thoughts.

    I feel if we spend a 1st round pick on QB or any player in the top 15 that player must be able to play/start from day one – not a year or two down the road. All these QB are over rated, I would try and get extra 1st round picks in 2012 and make a hard push to get Luck.

    I hope Rice and Edwards get picked up by another team as long as the Vikes get compensated the 1st round offer in 2012 – that would give us 3 picks in the 1st round.

    when cba is figured out sign Rice and deal Edwards to someone else, he has had one reaaly good game and that was against Dallas, big deal. Robison needs his shot and I think will be fine. still draft defensive help n maybe oline studs if there.
