And BSC wonders why their stock is in the single digits.

You get what you pay for.

They must be proud of you.

By the way, Favre had nothing to do with the poor state the team is in. The Vikings did not have to give up draft picks or players in order to get him. The only possible areas of blame that could be placed on having Favre on the team are (1) he helped the team win enough games that Ziggy kept Klink around longer than he might have done otherwise, and (2) he helped the team win enough games that we are picking later in the draft than we otherwise would have been.
Favre's $20-million annual salary didn't prevent the Vikings from building for the future? Heck, that's at least 3 Pro Bowlers salary right there. Yeah... no impact at all.

Check out the 'judge it' icons, sparky. Looks like you might want to reconsider your, ummm, rants for a while. Or, switch over to Big Ten volleyball forums. In the meantime...
I swear to god, you mudducks are soooo dumb...
As if we haven't figured out it is you that is filling up the "Judge It" icons. Just another dimwit in cow humper country.

The Vikings were 6-10 last year, and Powers uses the metaphor of a LIVE patient? I think the real reason for the laid-back attitude at Winter Park is that no matter what they do, at least they don't have to start a QB in a wheelchair, give up a 3rd round pick for 3 weeks of a spoiled brat WR's services, and try to win games in spite of an "offensive genius" of a head coach.

The patient becoming a cadaver? That happened last season, Tom.

The Eye says,"The Purple Hoarde quit being relevant when Mighty Mike Lynne took over the G.M spot. He alone ruined the Viking franchise with the moronic trade for stumble bum Herschel. They still have not recovered from the truckload of picks and players they gave up for that baffoon! From the ownership of Max Winter it went to ownership by committee with Chief idiot Roger Headrick and the mentally challenged gang of 10 running the team by committee. From there the Vikes were taken over by Raging Red McCombs who had the I.Q. of a Texas Tumbleweed. Sadly we are now with two Jersey Boy Sports people wannabees that are better suited to running a deli in Newark. The Clown Brothers Wilf could not be further out of their element. If they wanted to play dress up and make believe, they should have bought the New Jersey Nets and stayed back in their lair, better known as the Garden State.
One really has to wonder what our great state of 10,000 lakes did to warrent the harsh pennance of living under such dysfunctional, imbecillic, juvenile, and flat out stupid professional sports ownernship? I exempt the Pohlads from this group. They are the only ownership to bring the prestige of a World Championship to our fair state!
Don't waste time and energy watching the NFL draft tomorrow night. Your know our beloved purple management, as usual, will not have a clue and will make silly, simplistic, stupid choices dictated by Graucho and Harpo. The Vikings have not had a decent personell boss since Jim Finks.
the draft?...what we WILL hear is " he was the best athelete available, we had him a lot higher and were happy he fell in our lap"....a pretty standard statement, a rather funny one at that..........

Sorry, the real just another dimwit, but resorting to insults an 8th grader would consider trite magnifies your lack of imagination and resourcefulness. Everybody knows my wife died 2 years ago. So thanks.
