    ESPN poll isn't kind to Vikings

    The Vikings were 106th out of the 122 professional teams that were ranked.

    The Twins were the top-rated Minnesota team at No. 39. The Wild was 92nd and the Timberwolves 118th.

    Can't remember who pointed it out (and popped my bubble about how good I thought our Vikes were ranked) to me late last year how poorly our Vikings are considered. Probably that i_bleed_purple guy.:dry:

    I always thougth we were better. Alas.

    Re: ESPN poll isn't kind to Vikings

    Ratings is given based on a weighted score based on the following:

    “bang for the buck” (24.3%), players (16.6%), fan relations (16.5%), affordability (14.1%), stadium experience (9.1%), ownership (9.0%), title track (6.7%), and coaching (3.9%).

    Bang for the Buck I think we should do OK with, same with players and fan relations/affordability.

    Where we probably were rated the worst is stadium, ownership, Title track and coaching.

    Re: ESPN poll isn't kind to Vikings

    The only poll I'm interested in is the "Who Caine thinks is cool, and who sucks bag" poll.

    In that poll, the Vikings are #1 with a 100% cool rating while the Packers are at the bottom with a 100% bag-sucking rating.

    ESPN can suck it too....

    Not really. This is the opinion of Non-Viking fans. Being in a smaller market, I expect to be slammed by an ESPN poll.

    I don't need the rest of the country to validate my feelings about the team I choose to support. The only opinion on the matter I truly care about is...to be blunt...mine.

    So, again, ESPN can suck it.
