"Have we forgotten just how HUGE Winfieldís current six-year,$34.8-million deal was back when he signed it? Have we forgotten that he got $12 million up front? Better yet, have we forgotten that his salary this year is $6 million? Itís not like he got to the end of this great deal and thereís only a few hundred grand left to scrape by on"....

Nuf said.. Go work son!!! Talk to ya next year.

There will be plenty of cap room after I retire again after one year and not meeting this team and its fans expectations of winning a Super Bowl.

What about the mixed signals Winfield has sent to the team? He wants to retire a Viking but doesn't feel the need to attend any of the OTA's? How quickly he forgets how tough his year was the last time he decided to work out on his own because Brad Childress was mean to him. Quit crying Antoine, you had a great year last year. Don't forget that you already got your big contract. They'll take care of you as long as you are realistic about your contract requirements. If not, they'll Franchise you next year and see how well you age. Good luck.

What part of "WE DON'T HAVE THE MONEY FOR A STADIUM" do you not understand?

You want a stadium YOU pay for it.

Besides, we have to pay for Favre who will win us some games in the regular season only to look dumb as we depart the post season, again.
