  1. Bart Starr passes away at age 85

    Hey guys lifelong Vikings fan here.. just wanted to share a story about Mr. Starr. I’m currently in the middle of interviewing/shadowing for a sales job. Ironically I spent this past week in South Dakota with a 60 year old lifelong packers fan who has been to multiple Super Bowls and met Bart on more than one occasion. We had a lot of time to talk football and in between him ribbing me for being a Vikings fan he told me a story about the time he was walking into the Super Bowl just behind Bart and his wife and there was a guy with his young son with a sign that read “need tickets can only afford face value “ we’ll mr. Starr reaches into his pocket and gave the man 2 tickets for free.. from a Vikings fan RIP Bart your kindness and class will be sorely missed!
  2. GDT - NFCCG Rams (13-3) @ Saints (13-3): Get loud.

    Well I can vividly remember watching that game and thinking to myself that the way they were getting after favre felt different than any game I had ever seen.. I remember thinking that it seemed like they were trying to take him out.. I think if it had been any other quarterback they would have succeeded.. they couldn’t kill favre but damn they got close. That high low hit that wasn’t called greatly hampered him the rest of the game and more than likely made him decide not to run on the fateful interception to porter. Then to find out a couple years later that there was a bounty on favre I think would piss off any fan base and make them feel even more cheated.. just a Vikings fans observation for what it’s worth
  3. NFC Championship Game - @ Saints

    So I’m a Vikings fan and a very odd thing has happened.. some saints fans are finally admitting how bad it sucks when this happens to your team. It’s the first time in 9 years I’ve heard anyone admit that they had some very favorable calls go their way which undoubtedly played a role in the saints winning their first super bowl. Vikings fans have HATED the saints ever since but I gotta tell ya that today that hate is finally beginning to recede.. so thanks I think?

    Wow you are literally the first saints fan I’ve heard admit that ever.. while I’ll agree that any one call doesn’t decide the outcome of the game it sure feels like it doesn’t it? Two other blown calls in that game were the phantom pi on leber and the “catch” I believe by Henderson. Both of which were on the overtime drive that setup the game winning field goal. What saints fans feel right now is what we’ve felt for nine years and sadly have not gotten over. It might be different if we’d won one before or since then but that may have been our best chance.

    It sucks when the refs eff you out of a super bowl.. us Vikings fans can totally relate. At least you have 2009 to hang your hat on boys we’re still waiting

  9. Divisional Round GDT Saints vs Eagles

  10. Chuck Pagano Hired as DC

    It means zimmer hires an offensive coordinator to literally handle the entire offense.. he has no interest in getting involved with it at all. Even though we have a defensive coordinator (George Edwards) the guy is basically a puppet cuz zimmer runs that whole show. Nagy reminds me of zimmer in that sense
  11. Chuck Pagano Hired as DC

    Nagy is basically zimmer.. he has no interest in the other side of the ball. Maybe it’ll work out better for you guys than us
  12. Vic Fangio hired by Broncos

    For selfish reasons I’m glad Fangio is out of the division but on the other hand that really sucks for you guys.. this seems to always happen to the Vikings too.. seems like every time we have things going the right way we have to start over.. ie billick dungey Tomlin Shurmur etc.

    100% accurate.. their fans are the worst. They barely qualify as Americans in my book. Plus Chicago is probably the one team that totally understands the absolute hatred of all things Green Bay.. in that we are brothers
  14. 2019 Playoffs

    That makes sense.. I live in the twin cities but have a cabin in north west Wisconsin so I understand having to deal with the indigenous population.. my two favorite teams are the Minnesota Vikings and whoever is playing the Green Bay packers

    I have no problem with the bears. I was rooting for them
