    Oh Red had balls - everytime that he tried to make out that he was a caring NFL owner he displayed a big set.
    At least I've seen Wilf willing to put money into the team as opposed to sucking the $$ out - cheap tight ass texan
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    I'm glad you feel that you're qualified to pass judgement on the Wilf Era of Vikings ownership after one season of football.


    You're not, however.

    Once I've taken the time to parse through the spelling and grammar and punctuation errors to get to the true "point" of your post, I find that it is lacking in any understanding of the history of Red McCombs' time as owner nor any true grasp of how a class football team should be run.


    Here's a hint:
    it should be run like a strong corporation, not a used-car lot.

    The Red McCombs ownership era is still a yoke under which the Vikings and their fans still suffer.
    A new stadium could be ready to open this year if he wasn't such a complete huckster and money-squeezing tightwad.
    The Vikings had success during his tenure IN SPITE of him, not because of him.

    Wilf and his ownership group have had to work hard to undo many of the bad things McCombs had in place, not the least of which was the smallest and worst paid coaching staff in all of the NFL.
    There are great young players scattered all over the Vikings roster from the past couple of drafts (Griffin, Edwards, Cook, Greenway, Peterson, Rice - all are expected to start or play major roles in 2007) as well as TJack and his promise.

    You might not agree with the strategy (and I'd recommend a crash-course in English comprehension, too) but judging Red's time based on a lucky draft (getting Randy in '98) and some subsequent success is folly.

    Red was a very unlikeable tightwad, yes.
    I am also happy he is gone, HOWEVER...
    The Vikings had a lot more talent (and fan base) when Red left than when he first arrived.
    Just something to think about.

    McCombs is a disgrace to the NFL.
    It appears to me that some folks have a difficult time standardizing things for comparison.
    Redneck McCombs made one of the biggest blunders in the Vikings' franchise history.....letting an unqualified Meathead take the reigns as coach without looking for a reasonable replacement.
    I will put that into the category of unforgivable.
    May he roast in football hell for an eternity.

    Lucky draft and talent in place before he bought the team is responsible for most of the success he had.

    That unqualified Meathead lead the Vikings to a very respectable record for several seasons.
    A much better record than our current HC could pull with similar talent.

    And NO I am not bashing on Chilly...I think/pray he will turn out to be a great HC.
    Just playing DA.

    A less than 0.500 record is reasonable with the talent the Vikings had?
    Tice was outcoached consistently.
    The games he won were won in spite of him.
    When it came down to a coaching chess match, which it does many times, Tice folded.
    He was a pathetic excuse for a coach.
    Didn't even get a look as an HC when there were six openings after his contract wasn't renewed.
    He even got a demotion after one year with the Jags.
    Yeah, Tice is really good.

    Give Chilly a chance and see if he's good.
    Tice is not as an HC, that was proven.
