Hey Christine Kluwe...you're on the field an average of 8 plays a game and avoid tackles like Favre avoids sideline reporters...yet your concerned about getting hurt? Rather than being shocked by what this female punter actually said, I find it more interesting that a reporter would actually interview a PUNTER!!!! Stop wasting all of our time and interview AN ACTUAL FOOTBALL PLAYER.

Hmmm. NE and GB played at night, outside, in December last night. No one on either team complained, whined, cried, threatened to file a union grievance. Hmmmm. What is the difference between teams here. Hmmmmmm.

Klueless needs to take off his skirt and face reality. It's December and north of I-80 the fields are frozen. Did he watch UMD last weekend????

this vikings organizational culture of wimpy, whiny, sniveling, overpaid divas(players and office) is exactly why I don't watch the queens anymore(haven't for 7 years) and why they have earned zero of my support for any new stadium. When I see evidence of toughness, integrity, respect for fans, community involvment, I will support them. Until then they can suffer or move!

what planet are you on. every franchise has a problem child or 2, its just the vikings had no leadership under clueless to keep them inline. plus, there are players who do alot in the communities so for you to say they dont is just being ignorant. just go back to your basket weaving 101 class

I completely agree with Kluwe. What people don't understand is that other outdoor standiums are constantly kept-up and maintained throughout a football season. They have staff clearing and heating the field at the first sign of a snowfall. The TCF stadium doesn't have that and has been under snow and ice for weeks, which has caused the ground under it be completely frozen solid. It's going to take a lot more than a day or two of "fixing up" to get it in the same shape as other outdoor stadiums such as Lambaeu Field.
Although I am excited to see the Vikes play at the TCF standing, I have a feeling there are going to be some bad injuries and concussions (well...worse than normal).

Did they have ice coils at Lambaeu Field during the ice bowl? And how many players suffered career ending injuries during that game?
