I don't how we're supposed to remain emotionally attached to players like Birk that leave via free agency. I really didn't care when Favre remained retired. It struck home when Birk chose to leave. As far as I'm concerned this article has no place in a Vikings forum. Nice job Ginsburg, l-o-s-e-r!

Birk was upset about something because he played so well 4 years 4 us and then..........WHAT. I agree with you no place with the faithful.

While I agree that this doesn't belong on the Vikings' page, it's a nice little article that was saved for a slow Vikings news day.

It's equivelent to leaving an old girlfriend you've been getting tired of for many, many years and hooking up with a new, hot, young one. Of course your going to find new energy!

Good for Mat. Great player and person. Have to agree with above posters; no place for this story.

We play Baltimore at home on Oct. 18th. It will be fun watching the WWC destroy Birk like every other decent DT has done over the last couple of years.

It will be fun for Birk to watch the Vikings not reach the Super Bowl too.

IDK... I think that she's kind of a mutt. I think that he's after her money...

Oh well. Long as he's happy.

Probably won't be much fun for him watching it from a rehab tub after EJ & The Wall run him over...
