    This
    2003 draft, when the Vikings, with the 7th overall pick, were late with their selection. The Jacksonville Jaguars drafted quarterback Byron Leftwich and the Carolina Panthers drafted offensive tackle Jordan Gross before the Vikings were able to submit their selection of defensive tackle Kevin Williams
    Looks like we got the last laugh on that one... plus weren't we gonna select KW anyways, we jsut got him a little cheaper by getting hime a few spots down.

    Wasn't this due to a botched trade plan?

    I also heard it was due to Red Cheapskate McCombs insistence on trading down even though nobody was willing to trade with us.
    Rumor has it he would not allow them to make the selection and made quite a scene...

    The Walker trade was funny in a very painful sort of way.

    Here's a good one from Bud Grant. I remember one time the Vikes just got jobbed by the referees and I was incensed. Finally, they called in Bud Grant, and they asked him what he thought of the officiating that day. His answer:

    "Terrible. They didn't even call Yary for holding once the entire game."

    Bud not only got his point across, he didn't get fined or in trouble for it, either!!!
