Fan Favorite: Individual Player Intros Return Next Two Weeks

Posted by Mike Wobschall on September 14, 2011 – 8:07 am

The Vikings enjoy a great home-field advantage at Mall of America Field and it looks like that advantage will be given a boost over the next two games. The team has decided to bring back individual player introductions, always a fan-favorite aspect of pre-game festivities.

In recent seasons, the club has gone with a full team introduction for each home game. By popular demand, however, Head Coach Leslie Frazier and the team has decided to try individual player intros for the next two games.

It’s not yet known which groups will be introduced for each game, but you can be sure the introductions will be met with an electric and raucous reaction from the fans at Mall of America Field.

    The reaction to Berrian’s intro might be slightly more subdued.

    Everyone should shout butter fingers when Berrian is announced.

    The following is from,

    http://www.1500espn.com/sportswire/Growing_concern_within_Vikings_ownership_as_lease_countdown_begins082911

    “But now we’re down to the end of the lease, and if we don’t get it done this fall, we get to February (and) we will be the only NFL team without a lease,” Bagley said. “The only one. There’s already been knocks on the door about, ‘Hey, we want to talk to you guys when your lease is up.'”

    Those calls have come from Los Angeles and other potential suitors whom Bagley refused to identify. Tim Leiweke and his Anschutz Entertainment Group want to put a team in a downtown Los Angeles stadium they want to build. Real estate executive Ed Roski also hasn’t given up on his goal of drawing a team to the stadium he wants to build in Industry, Calif., which is about 20 miles away from L.A.

    – The Vikings pay $18 million annually in state and local taxes? A report from Convention, Sports & Leisure said a new stadium and the retention of the Vikings will generate $26 million annually in tax revenue.

    – The Metrodome was built for $55 million total, including $33 million in public dollars..The State of Minnesota contributed none of this money, but has received $304 million in tax revenue since the Metrodome opened

    this is off topic, but is there any chance the Vikings bring back Benny Sapp? He’s better then Asher Allen is horrible and bringing back Benny Sapp would be an upgrade to our secondary core.

    After watching him get burned by T Brady all night Monday he would fit right in with our secondary again

    .Vikings, is this the last year you are in Minnesota?

    I P-R-A-Y that Minnesota will stop playing games with this team and get the job done now!

    Individual player introductions, maybe a fan pleaser but will it make the player better. Who knows but I think it is time that the NFL should consider the fans more than they do, the lock out did not help their image at all. SKOL Vikings.

    Well, if this fires up our team, then I am all for it.
    DRS- Sadly the stadium issue has become a joke. History suggests that the citizens of MN will let the team go……then at some later date, bring back another team for continued years of medicrity……

    Rocksalt, send back your tax cut and cheer up.

    ozzinator-
    give it up, man……your routine needs new material. Can’t the tea party of no come up with anything new or constructive?
    NO NEW TAXES….JUST RAISE USER FEES…..GUESS WHAT? Taxes pay for all types infrastructure necessary for civilized life….Art Museums, Theatre, Symphony Orchestra, parks, etc.
    Taxes, an the corporate tax loopholes, support many ventures both non-profit and commercial.
    The Wilfs have put their contributions on the table:
    fact: Vikes are 5th in league in spending
    fact: Vikes are 30th in league in revenue
    fact: The Metrodump is emabarrassingly outdated
    TIME TO QUIT BEING ANTI-PROGRESS and get the deal done!

    Rocksalt-
    Anti-progress? You mean anti-liberal don’t you?
    What about your worn out routine. Tax and spend, tax and spend, tax and spend. All under the fallacy that it’s for necessary services or civil infrastructure. Art museums, theatre, orchestra………give me a break!
    Whatever whacko.

    I agree with you true viking fan.If the Vikings leave it will be a kick in my heart. I’ve supported the MINNESOTA VIKINGS my entire life ,heck they are a way of life to me and my family,friends,co-workers.I can’t imagine autum and winter Sundays without them. WAKE UP STATE LEADERS AND GET THIS STADIUM ISSUE RESOLVED!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is exactly why the VIKINGS HAVE TO STAY IN MN. The revenue generated by the new stadium will GO THROUGH THE ROOF after it’s built.

    There is a group of 4 in my family coming in from Wyoming and another 5 coming up from Rochester for the Detroit game. I can NOT wait. My first Vikings game at age 32 but been a fan ALL my life :)

    @the DRS,

    You sir are correct. Imagine the lift it would give the Vikings players if they knew that they were getting a new stadium, and staying in Minnesota.

    Their families would like to know::::Will we be living in LA, Arizona, Florida, Nova Scotia, or MN next year??????

    Gee, Jared Allen was critical of the stadium. Now I think I agree with his stance.

    I can say this much about the stadium issue and LA. I live in Cali, but a life long Vikings fan, and from what I have been hearing out this way is that the Chargers are the go to team for going to LA. The Chargers would be worth more money and they are expected to move because of the stadium issue(s) and other issue(s). LA is pressing for San Diego Chargers to move out to LA instead of the Vikings.

    bunch of jack wagons on capitol hill here in Minnesota, just build the dang stadium already. us Electricians need some work, arrrrrrrgghhh!

    LIVE IN CALIF., BEEN A VIKING FAN SINCE 1968 SEASON; THE LA RAMS HERE ALWAYS HAD A “HOLLYWOOD HEX” ON THEM IT SEEMED; RAMS AND VIKINGS BOTH HAD POWERFUL DEFENSES, BUT RAMS ALWAYS LOST PLAYOFFS TO THE VIKES. IF THEY DIDN’T PLAY THE VIKES IN FIRST ROUND, THEY WOULD THEN LOSE TO DALLAS.

    I HOPE THE VIKINGS GET THEIR STADIUM AND STAY IN MINNESOTA–THERE’S A HEX WAITING HERE FOR THE NEXT NFL TEAM!!! VIKINGS BELONG IN THE FRIGID NORTH COUNTRY!!! ITS A “NATURAL”. YOUR POLITICIANS OUT THERE SHOULD DO SOMETHING TO EARN THEIR PAY. GET THE NEW STADIUM DONE!!

    GO VIKES!!

    the sad part is that the average minnesotan wont be able to afford season tickets. three rows of luxury boxes instead of 1 all the sideline seats become premium seating which I am sure will double ticket prices. I dont agree with all the “high end” upgrades which obviously arent with the everyday joe fan in mind. Corperate minnesota (metro) will own the seating

    the buck fifty ticket on the fifty yard line will now be up in the nosebleeds.
