Thread: Police blotter
You know, it's been uncharacteristically quiet on the Vikings front as far as news is concerned and it seems that the Vikings have really cut down on their appearances on the police blotter. I looked at the page on PFT and noticed the last entry we had on there was AP getting the resisting arrest charge and that was over a year ago on 7/7/2012 which is a dramatic turnaround from past years where we always had something keeping the team at the top of the news for thing we didn't want to see.
So I think it is in order to congratulate Frazier and Spielman as well as Zygi for ushering in an era of accountability and responsibility that is unifying the team and improving the image of the team.
Anyways, with so many negative threads about the QB play, losing veterans and the like I think this is sort of refreshing and makes it nice to see as a fan.

Although I miss the embarrassment of Love Boats and DUI's (well, not really), and the mentions in Letterman's Top 10 lists, I would like to second your commendation of the GM and Coach. Of course, the end result needs to be a championship...and that comes from putting yourselves in a position to win by executing plays on the field. As a fan, I love the team concept. And I love the personnel we have, in particular guys like AD, Chad, JA, KWill, Sully, Load, BRob...and emerging players like Kalil, Smith, Griffin and Rhodes. This is a great nucleus for a team...now we just need Ponder to perform.Any man who afflicts the human race with ideas must be prepared to see them misunderstood. - H.L. Mencken
Come from the land of the ice and snow...
Interestingly you get a post about someone who thinks the QB sucks and you get pages of responses but one post about the team doing something right and nobody cares enough to comment. Just sayin.

Vikings Give Back Via 8th Annual Playground Build
The media gets off on posting the negative news that happens in the NFL because that's what gets them ratings, sells their newspapers, gets them ad revenue, you get the idea. I personally am glad that we aren't being discussed right now because that means our team is focused on the task at hand and that is surpassing the Packers and winning the NFC North and making a deep run in the playoffs.
