    Then you clearly are not familiar with that old colloquilism (sp?).

    To spell it out:
    beeyatch no matter what.

    There.
    Right then, no need for silly metaphors.

    So you started a thread complaining about complainers.
    Right then, no need for silly threads.

    No, simply made a statement about the behaviors around here, and you put yourself up as a shining example so that my point was concrete.

    I'm guilty of that, I became a new member after last weeks loss ;D. What can I say, misery loves company. You get comfort from those suffering through the same tragedy. And other cliches that pass as an excuse for me, but in my defense I've come back after a win too.

    But back to the topic ... your metaphor implies that we're hung no matter who's our starter, and that might be true, only time will tell, but the fact that changes were made at least give us hope that there will be a stay of execution, and there was for at least 1 more week lol. Short version: Tjack = close your eyes and hope it's over quick, Gus = maybe somehow we'll survive. Oh no, I used "hope" when talking about the Vikes chances :.

    Some of you would complain if you were hung with a new rope.

    Stunning.
    Heh.

    I'm as happy as the next guy about the Dub-Ya.

    The improvement between T-Jack and Gus is minimal.
    There is an improvement, no doubt about it, especially with the patience (check downs) and decision making (throwing with authority).
    But it certainly helps that the WRs and Shank actually catch the damn ball.

    You're also doing a fine job of concreting that yourself.
    I'm happy has all heck that the Vikings won, and I think we played some good football.
    So I don't get what the big deal is if I still don't like an aspect of what the Vikings are doing.
    All the while you are going around complaining about all the complainers.
    Well I don't think it's any kind of big deal, people always have worries and problems, if everybody always sat around singing at the camp fire and being happy that would be just as bad.


    Great game, great win, still needs improving.
    So go on, use me as an example.
    Because I'm a Viking fan, and I'll call them like I see them and not conform my opinion to fit with your status quo of not complaing(well except when you are complaining, then it's fine).
    I'm not out for a fight, but I'm just pointing out it's kind of silly with the complaining about the complaining.
    You don't like complaining, don't complain about it, take me or anyone on about what we're complaining about.


    Heck I'm as much a knee jerk fan as the next, but who isn't.
    Oh, I still think Gus is a bum.
    How's that?

    No, colloquilism means it doesn't matter what happens the person, they will complain.
