    Re: Alan Page Story on NFL Network Now

    It forcused far more on his legal and political career than it did his football career.
    There were several things said about the time he spent with the Vikes that really surprised me. How he didn't get along with his teammates, etc. And then the Vikes let him go because of a weight loss but he still was an outstanding defensive tackle with Chicago.
    A lot of it delt with his perception of unfairness to the Aferican American community, especially in education.

    Re: Alan Page Story on NFL Network Now

    I watched it with my 2 boys last night and enjoyed it. Watching the old clips of the Vikings playing at the Met was awsome. My boys couldn't believe I how excited I was to see all of that and they asked me so many questions. Old Allan is quite the man found out alot more about the man away from football. :headbang: ccasion5: It was a real cool evening.

    The NFL Network also will be showing a piece on the Vikings on Saturday about the gold mine Jim Marshall and others are involved in. I believe it airs at 2:00 PST. They also had a one hour "in their own words" yesterday on Cris Carter.

    It was a bad ting, ta let 'im go, but, he was losin' too much weight from his jogging program. Bud Grant wanted 'im ta stop losin' so much weight, an' he wouldn't do it. What else wuz dey supposed ta do, y'know? Kind of an ego 'ting dere, I guess. But, dat stuff happens.

    Good program. He is a very smart man and we are lucky that he settled for good in Minnesota.

    One of the truly deserving HOF'ers before it became a popularity contest.

    Yeah, Bud didn't think he could play at 220...but Page could do anything he wanted to. My opinion, he was the best to ever play DT...quick as lightning. It always bothers me seeing him in the Bears #82 uniform. But he's tops on and off the field.
