Just a little shout out to Cindy 'The B*tch' Rice!

Be a team player, and the team will reward you with big fat payday.

Put yourself and that cockroach agent of yours before the team, and you're just a worthless chump.

And screw the Cindy Rice fanboys here who like to stick their little brown weasle noses right up Cindy's a$$.

Except he doesn't play middle linebacker.

This was the smart move by Minny. Of course, it's kind of a slap at Sidney Rice. It feels like Rice will want to be paid as an elite receiver due to his one good year. He is definitely due a nice bump, but the Vikings should give too much, given his injury.

Rice was definitely missed this year. There was no one to go accross the middle and no one to go up and get the ball...He let his team down by NOT being ready for the beginning of the season. You guys should really reward Benard "gator hands" Berrian and "stone fingers" Tahi.

This was a no-brainer. With the franchise and transition tags, the Vikes definitely plan to tie up Greenway and Rice for next season.

What's he doing swithing uniforms with Ben Leber for the Chicago game? I didn't even notice that.
I've always liked Greenway since he came into the league and he keeps getting better. Plus a great attitude! Go Chad! Go Ben! Skol Vikes!

WHATEVER! you say dude!

A little depress not every player is a goody goody boy?

What world do you live in? oh yeah the 1960's where every
black man is a slave and should be who you want them to be
and every white player is who you are!

I'll feel great when Cindy 'The Worthless B*tch' Rice is sent packing.
That chump is anything but a team player, and he doesn't deserve to wear purple.
