    I expect to see a promotion for Spielman once he resigns Greenway and AP.

    I think he will sign Peterson. Keep in mind that Spielman is dealing with A.D.’s agent. That agent might not care about who his client signs with as long as he gets THE MONEY.

    So we’ll just have to wait it out. (Can his agent afford to live in a 9 bedroom condo, or does he have to have the mansion in North Oaks?)

    Fred – Expanding on that, Speilman is dealing with Fitzgerald’s agent too. Earlier this week, I learned that he represents both superstars.

    So, I think the question is whether the agent needs a second mansion. (You’d hate to force him to slum it in a 5-star hoel when he comes to visit his client in MN).

    Shouldn’t this wait untill the team has ome back form the cellar? I am feeling good about the team, but shouldn’t they be saving their tuppens for the stadium?

    If we havent resigned Peterson yet its because nobody is taking it serious, and Viking management are not doing their jobs … wonder if Arizona would offer Peterson a nice contract next offseason

    someone is slacking and we have 2 deals that need to get done … watch peterson and greenway and wth Mcnabb go to Seattle next year with Bevell and Sidney , TJack will be the back up by then

    Well, Shawn, that would free up salary space to bring Moss out of retirement. Moss and Ponder to the Superbowl!

    while I personally do not wish for AP to be traded, I have listened to others speak of this.It apears that there is some logic in the notion:
    1 Vikes are 30th in league in revenue(largely due to concessions & parking$$ at metrodome do not go to team)
    2. Vikes are 5th in spending……..
    3. AP will no doubt negotiate a large contract when the time comes……
    4. unless we improve in some areas quickly, he may wish to go to a team that is a definite contender for SB

    If somebody technical was promoted, I hope they are not charged with the sound from the press conferences, it is poor work, to the point where I think somebody has a bone to pick with the coach. Incompetence at the professional level cannot drag on for years. (oops, I forgot about Detriot)

    If stereo is too hard, try one of those parabolic mics, they use to hear from far away to just pick up everyone at a distance on one channel.
