    Re: If The Vikes Ever Played Aroad

    Personally, I have mixed feelings but most of me wouldn't support it.
    I mean no disrespect to anyone and I don't even live in the state of Minnesota.
    I look at it economically in that the state of MN that is located in the USA would be sacrificing the revenue pulled in from a game and giving it to another country.
    Sorry to be like that but I am an American first.
    This isn't meant to be to discriminitory.
    It's just my feelings.

    On the other hand, if it did happen I would love to take a vacation and go see it wherever it may be.

    Obviously very few are concerned over that aspect my freind or they would build them a stadium.

    Would the people of Minnesota be in favour (favor for integration

    Even though you guys only play 8 home games a year (regular), but would you sacrifice one of these games to help the NFL establish itself as a major worldwide brand?


    Manure fans don't deserve to see the vikings play.

    Re: If The Vikes Ever Played Aroad

    I would be in favor of it if it was a road game but not a home game.


    The NFL should do it a little different though, such as working it out where 4 teams would have two consecutive games in Europe, followed by a bye.
    For instance 4 teams travel to Europe for the same two week stretch.
    There would be 4 games total played, two on one Sunday and two on the next.
    Each team would play a different team each week, one would be considered "home" and one would be "away".
    This way the scheduling would be fair.

    It would go something like:







    Week 1








    Week 2
    Vikes

    Game 1 - Home


    Game 3 - Away
    Pack


    Game 1 - Away



    Game 4 - Home
    Lions

    Game 2 - Home


    Game 4 - Away
    Bears

    Game 2 - Away



    Game 3 - Home

    As a season ticket holder I wouldn't mind losing a home game as long as one of our away games was at a neutral venue.

    The obvious reason for the bye afterward would be jet lag.

    Well their police would be more understanding if there were any disorderly conduct problems with our players..

    Re: If The Vikes Ever Played Aroad

    I am not a huge fan of out of country regular season games. Preaseason ones are fine. The people that really lose out are the ones that go to the home games. Won't make a difference if you watch all the games on tv.
