    Re: OK, Minnesota people...I have to know something...

    If Wilf is to stick to his word Smith needs to be suspended, not cut.
    Smith did not endanger lives nor is his list of misdeeds long (though there is a list).


    There may be a cultural difference, I do not know.
    I do know that if I saw a man naked I would call the police.
    I do not want to appraoch a naked man.
    Who is naked in public? Usually people under the influence of some sort of drug and they are always a little unpredictable.


    I am not sure why the media absolutley grills the Vikes while the Bengals have fewer guys not arested than ones arrested and you hardly hear about it.
    Michael Irvin had more drug convictions then any three people alive and he annolunces for ESPN.
    Who knows why the Vikes get blasted.

    Maybe it was someone who was with their child. The fact that they had to have that conversation with their kid could have pissed them off to the point of calling.

    All I am saying is there is no doubt in my mind there are people in this world that would call that in.

    And they all live in Minnesota.

    Minnesota is a very liberal state with a lot of old fashion morals by many people. They jump at the chance to call 911 & report the slightest thing.

    I grew up in Winona during the hot pants & bikini craze & we had a woman on the city council who fought hard to outlaw them on the beaches. She wanted women to wear only the one piece swimsuits in public.

    I never really equated liberalism with old fasioned morals.

    That's because you are from Pennsylvannia.

    Minnesotans for a great part are very conservative in their ideals. Mostly the older generations.

    Could also be the work of the "Tipster Hotline". Down in SE Minnesota, tipsters get paid by the local media for any newsworthy incidents they turn in.

    Some people will do anything for a buck.

    It's kinda funny I was thinking the samething. It's like the Viking players are being setup in a lot of the off-field problems. What Smith was stupid but I kinda find it hard that someone called the cops that early in the morning.

    politically liberal and socially conservative. Think Scandanavian farmer. That's the stereotype anyway. And there are places where it's accurate and others where it's useless. I would think that the folks who frequent Block E in downtown minneapolis aren't necessarily the socially conservative types. Who knows what motivated the caller, but I don't think you can chalk it up to 'minnesota culture'. I'd guess that the caller was either 1) a jealous packer fan, 2) associated with the muck dredging wing of the media, or 3) both.

    he saw her with a viking probably before the... incident and called it in..

    Re: OK, Minnesota people...I have to know something...

    I have always had this conspiracy theory with the Twin Cities media that, being so close to the Wi border they have too many Packer faithful working for them.

    Does anyone remember in 96 when the packers went to the super bowl and the metro TV station crews were having specials to celebrate it and wearing packers jackets? I specifically remember Belinda Jensen and I can't remember if it was Tim Mcniff or Ken Barlow but it really ticked me off to see a station in our state celebrating the packers like that.

    It told me that there was someone higher up who had to approve that type of program and that leads me to question the loyaly of the media management to our team.
