I plan to, I was looking for a forum and noticed a lot of the vikings ones had terrible layouts. This forum is much better and is very similar to one I use for Aussie football... I just havent worked out where the like button is!

What Aussie Rules Football team should I be a fan of?  I used to watch it back in the 80s/90s when they used to have the game of the week on ESPN, and I think it was the Carlton Blues that I used to watch a lot, but it's been 20+ years since I last watched a game.  It was either them or the Richmond Tigers...I can't quite remember.

Well it would be rude of me not to suggest my own team, Collingwood. Good team, lost the grand final by 5pts last season and should be contending again. 

Carlton were really good in the 90's but have been by far the worst team since 2000, they have finished last a lot (2002, 2005, 2006,  2015, 2018) and wasted an incredible amount of high draft picks. They are basically what the Browns were before last season. Prior to coming last in 2002 they hadn't finished last in 108 years. They still suck this season but seem to have some good young players at least. 

Richmond are a good team and won the premiership in 2017... but they're a gross club :D

There are few new teams since the 90's and a lot of new teams since the 80's. The competition grew from having teams in one state to teams across the entire country during the 90's.

So kind of exciting news. I just finished PA school and I will be moving my family from Idaho out to Eden Prairie to start a job with Twin Cities Orthopedics. 

I guess I just wanted to be closer to all the pain and misery that comes with being a Vikings fan

Are you involved on the instrumentation/controls side at all? That is my specialty.

Just operation for me.  Maintenance and upgrades are handled by a different bunch of guys.
