    Re: Gary Zimmerman gets call for Canton

    I met him a few times when he played for us and he was always one of my favorite Vikings. I hated to see him leave us and really hate that he was eventually replaced by Steussie who is one of my least favorite Vikings of all time.

    I am not too crazy about this comment, though

    He felt the Mile High City was a breath of fresh air after toiling for the Vikings’ old 13-member ownership group, an awkward setup that fostered a less-than-friendly relationship with the hired help. Zimmerman thought it was that way everywhere until he landed in Denver with its frenzied football fan base and an owner who took the time to forge a friendship with his players.

    “When I went to Denver it’s like the dog who gets put to the pound and you get a new owner and the loyalty is to that new owner and the owner treats you good,” Zimmerman said.

    But in reality I am sure it was true and has remained true for many years. I like the fact that the ownership group seems to be changing that.

    The former Vikings lineman saw his career blossom as a Denver Bronco, and that's the team that will present him today in Canton.

    The Super Bowl ring is in a safe deposit box at the bank. I'll bring it to the Hall of Fame ceremony. I don't wear it ever. I'll bring it to schools. I'm not a jewelry guy. And my fingers have shrunk so much now it's really huge on me....

    Re: Gary Zimmerman gets call for Canton

    Very good speech last night.


    As with all new HC's, sometimes they shitcan players that we the fans don't agree with.
    He was one of those guys I hated to see go during that time frame.

    Very deserving candidate for the Hall IMHO.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
