    I get pissed when they lose big games.
    I honestly don't how someone wouldn't.
    When the Vikings play I am making an investment of my time into the team.
    My time is valuable to me so it would be nice to occasionally be rewarded with some winning seasons.

    Think of how much time gets spent of your life around this team.
    3-4 hours every Sunday for 21 weeks for x amount of years.
    gol 'darnit right I get emotionally involved.
    This not including training camp for some people or time spent reading info online or listening to stuff on the radio about the team.



    Also think about how much money you have poured into this team over the years.
    Tickets, merchandise, ect.

    I wouldn't judge anyone on how they react to a game or call them less of a man that is stupid.
    I typically stay mad for a day.
    If its a real big game where they choke, 1998, 41-0, cardinals last play of the fricking game bs, last year against redskins.
    I will stay mad for about a week.
    Then I will cringe every time it gets mentioned lol.
    +1 well said.
    I do get upst, then I move on.

    Way too much going on in my life to let the team drag me down from my family, work and coaching youth sports.

    And I seriously doubt you guys walk around all day mad.
    You may get mad when you think of it, but it's not like it is ruining your entire day.

    BTW, this is techinically a winning season.
    May as well be happy for something.
    No one is saying we walk around crying with our heads down, Im just saying its always in the back of my head and tears me up and kills my mood. All the time and money and life i invested in this team...it pisses me off.

    I am just curious, no knock here...how old are you?

    Also, how much money have you invested?
    I am sure there is a retrun on your investment because they do not suck all the time.

    im 27, and i would say i invest about a good 500 a season.. it would be more if they play teams like philly, washington, and baltimore and NY at there places, i go to all of those games.

    EDIT: Ultra i know i dont exactly act like an "Adult" on the boards man, but its a football forum so i let loose and let my kid instincts go.. i had a Michael Jackson Childhood besides all the g*y stuff and touching little boys

    That's ok.
    I really had no idea how old you were.
    If you were say 16, I would think the amount of money would be less than a 27 year old.

    I understand you want a return.
    I probably put around $300 into the team with the Sunday Ticket.
    Even some years we may not do as good, I think all the excitement leading up to that year is well worth it.
    I also just like watching football.
    Even though we did not make the playoffs last year you gotta admit it was fun the watch AD.
    And this year it is fun with a playoff run, AD, Greenway, AW, Allen ,etc.
