    Foley's grievance case is settled

    MANKATO - The Vikings have settled their grievance case with former personnel director Fran Foley, according to two people with knowledge of the situation. Terms of the arrangement were undisclosed and apparently still are being finalized. Foley had nearly $1 million remaining on his contract when the Vikings fired him May 2.

    The decision means the NFL will not carry through with plans for an arbitration hearing to determine whether the Vikings owed Foley the full remainder of his salary. "The parties have agreed not to comment on the case," said Jeffrey Kessler, Foley's attorney.

    The Vikings repeatedly have said they would not comment. An NFL spokesman said he had nothing to report on the issue.

    The Vikings fired Foley one day after the draft amid reports of an abrasive management style and an inaccurate résumé. The team initially was unable to reach a contract settlement with him, prompting Foley to hire Kessler and pursue a wrongful termination case. Rick Spielman replaced Foley on May 30 as vice president of player personnel.

    I'm sure he got a nice chunk of cash if not all of it.

    The Vikings signed a contract. Sucks for us good for him.

    Eh, saves an arbitration that would have been a distraction for the Vikings. And it's not like an NFL franchise backed by a billionaire can't afford it. The Vikes had the opinion that it was better to get rid of Foley in the manner that you tear off a band-aid.

    Quickly.

    I would go after his entire salary from day one. He lied about his qualifications. Rake the bastard over the coals and tie him up behind a horse and drag him through town.

    Man, the season needs to start soon.

    Wilf should pay us for having to look at his ass.

    Seriously I can't blame Foley for being handicapped. Wilf and Co. on the other hand screwed the pooch on that one.

    Learn and live I guess. Don't hire guys who's chin fat looks like a ramp for people to wheelbarrow pounds of jelly filled buttered scallops into his piehole.
