    Well folks just immune yourself to all of it. No matter what happens in the off season if we get a new coaching staff, Culpepper comes back ready to play, or we sign another QB to challange Johnson until Culpepper is back, and even God forbid Culpepper does get traded.

    All you will hear about all next year regardless if anyone does get convicted from the boat scandle is the boat scandel, O. Smith overcoming the whizzinator.

    Mark my words if we start out 15-0 or even go undefeated next year we will still hear all of the boat scandel and all of the other negative stuff that happened to us. No matter what any other player or team does in the NFL it will be the Vikings this or the Vikings that.

    Maybe we will get lucky and madden will fall on Joe Buck at a announcers party, ESPN will get a new staff of announcers and things might get better.

    Skol and lets win the last one.

    Well they don't talk about any of this stuff for other teams because THEY DIDN'T DO IT ...
    If you don't want announcers talking about your Whizzanator, Love Boat and ticket scalping problems, THEN DON'T DO THEM, it really is that simple ... the jokes will continue and THEY SHOULD ... if any other team had these problems occur, much less all in one season, we would crack on them all day long ... get over ourselves ... the jokes are warranted and commenting on the boat scandal is warranted because NONE of it should have happened ... it is like the stupid practice jokes with A.I. and Kobe rape jokes, blah blah blah, if they had never had the problems ... jokes would not be told!!

    I was really bothered by the announcers. The whole game I was kinda upset that they weren't really giving the Vikings any credit. And how many times did they mention that Kyle Bollers job was on the line? That was all they could talk about. I know at one point they said something about a MeMo run but other than that, it seemed like everyone was out to get us including the ref's as usual. Ok, sorry I just had to vent.
    I agree, i can't remember how many times i heard about how great kyle boller has been the last two weeks. Kyle boller this, kyle boller that. HE PLAYED THE PACKERS DEFENSE LAST WEEK FOR GOD'S SAKE!! pretty convenient time in the schedule for management to tell him that his job is on the line. Our defense let us down at key times and it was evident...so i really don't see why they give him so much credit.

    Joe liked to talk about missed tackles on the Ravens part.. when it really had to do with the fact that we have fast guys.. after Williamson caught that pass I thought he might take it to the house.

    The jokes might be warranted, but they just get really OLD after awhile. I mean when announcers are annoucing a game they should talk about the game and not go on and on about stuff we've already heard about a million times.

    Re: I KNOW RANT AND RAVE AT ESPN ANNOUNCERS!!

    It always annoys me to be listening to ESPN or ABC if we are losing. Sometimes even if we win I'm annoyed. It just feels like the announcers have such a scripted dialouge for the whole game that they aren't allowed to be original. Football is not a scripted story, spontaneous things happen. IF Kyle Boller had stunk that game, they would have been "blah blah who do the ravens turn to a QB now if he can't cut it blah blah" even though a totally new story may have emerged mid-game. I wish they were more flexible. One thing that is done well is showing why plays worked or didn't work. They are great at showing breakdrowns in coverage, missed tackles, and such.

    I know one thing they do for soccer games in Europe sometimes is they have one anouncer from each team following the game. Fans of both sides get a more favorable perspective, plus there is playful banter like bragging and obviously biased opinions on close calls. I absolutely love it but I doubt ESPN, FOX, or CBS would ever do it.

    i got mad when he sayed
    "i didn't get the whizzinator i wanted for christmas"
    that is low, it is embarrassing to the vikings and to onterrio smith and his friends and family. it is really tasteless for a professional announce to kick a man while he is down in front of the whole country.

    I didn't hear that part, they must have been on something themselves when they said that, or just trying to sound cute.
