    Re: Culpepper's camp ready to negotiate. What will Vikings do?

    singersp.. yer our top connection for info.. i odn't think anyone would ignore ya..

    well.. course there are trolls about..

    besides my way to early reading of mn newspapers.

    and if you read the article.. even his agent says he is focusing on coming back faster and stronger!! we'll have to see what happens with his contract.. but.. like i said before.. why bash a guy when u do'nt even have the whole store?

    I'm talking about the handful of people who are going to stick up for Dante sayind we need to throw more money at him and have also blasted Brad Johnson saying he needs to honor his contract.

    Not about the very awesome well informed person who started this thread :grin:

    This is almost as bad as when Birk basically said hey I will risk my career but you have to hook me up with a deal. I don't care if there was a previous arrangement or what the guy might never play again and if he does he may not be half as good as he was.


    There is no doubt in my mind that there will be people who just two days ago were blasting BJ "angry" that he was not honoring his current contract will chime in, in support of Daunte and his quest for top pay even after he played like ass soup last year. He hasn't even proven he can be successful without Moss.

    I could see giving him more guaranteed money if it was based on level of play. He would have to start out where his contract is at &earn the increase only after he proves it's merited.

    To throw "guaranteed" money at him before he even steps on the field would be ridiculous.

    This isn't true of just DC, but any superstar playing pro sports today.

    But exactly how many millions can a player spend in his lifetime?

    When is enough enough?

    I think he is looking for an easy way out.

    No team in their right mind would throw a truckload of money at a guy who may never play again.

    If there is a contract "dispute" he can get away from the scandal and the critisizm and start fresh.

    I think the timing of this is pretty suspicious, after all these allegations of the Vikes shopping him. I'll be a real conspiracy theorist and say Pep is saying "put up or shut up" to the organization, either pay me what a superstar QB merits now or trade me to someone that will.
    Exactly. I think that Culpepper is forcing the Vikings hand on this one. This will either force them to commit by restructuring his deal and paying him more or it will force them to trade him.

    Teams don't have to honor contracts.... player should try and get as much money as he can, while he can.

    It's good that teams dont have to honor contracts. Otherwise it would be the NBA.

    Asking for a rework after all that has happend last year sounds pretty damn desperate to me.

    If I was Wilf I'd tell him to blow me.

    *Edit*

    That may be too harsh. I would tell Daunte to come talk to me at the end of next year. That may go over slightly better.

    we need to keep culpepper, he is our franchise player, even though he didnt have the greatest season this year, he is still good and should go better next season with the west coast offense and new coaches, we cannot afford to let him go

    He DOES NOT fit the mold of a West Coast player. That's the problem. Daunte is a runner and a long ball thrower. Brad Johnson is a West Coast style player and proved it last year.
    Daunte asking for more money at this point is the stupidest thing he ever did with the exception of all his interceptions and fumbles last year. The highest paid player in the NFL, come on! He isn't anywher near the top QB in the NFL. Look at the four QB's in the hunt for the Super Bowl. Only ONE is a first round draft choice. The rest are all lesser known QB's.
