    He was on ESPN? I didn't see him. Dang, I guess I better stay up for the later sportscenter now!!
    It was on about 10 minutes ago.

    So, if this is an hour SC it will be on in about 45-50 minutes?

    Kinda sad the way he had to tell his wife by cell phone instead of to her face.

    That kinda pisses me off. Tice was not even given enough time to tell his wife before it was released that he no longer had a job.

    Zygi dropped a few notches as far as I am concerned. At least treat Mike like a man...christ!

    Re: Tice on local TV

    Yeah, I don't like how the whole situation was handled. I really feel bad for the guy and I kind of feel he got a bum rap on the deal. I guess that's the brutal life of the NFL.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    I am really mad at Zygi right now. He should have atleast let Tice enjoy the win tonight and wait until tomorrow. They said on the radio that one of Tice's kids was balling in the locker room and that a lot of players were mad about the decision.

    I think this is also a very classy move from a really good guy.

    This is a separate thought than the firing hubbub I think....remembering here that while everyone enjoyed throwing stones because it was easy to do, you were doing it to a good guy.

    That's some big balls to go on the show...he coulda just said, buh bye!!

    A "GOOD GUY" webby? Come on dude. I am sure he is a great guy but being a great guy doesnt make you a great coach! Or a decent coach for that matter.

    Thing is for me, I will never be able to take anything Wilf says at "face value" again ..... will always have doubts at his underlying intentions.

    Very true. Didn't he say he would "never move the team."

    Re: Tice on local TV

    Among Tice's comments after being informed:


    "It's a shame that I'm not going to be able to work for the Wilfs. I think they're going to be great owners, I really do. I think as they learn to be NFL owners, they'll be top-notch owners."

    "I think Minnesota is very lucky to have the Wilf family as their owners. ... Hopefully everybody will get behind him and build a new stadium, because we need a new stadium."

    "When we were 2-5 and there were rumors flying around that Zygi was going to fire me, I went to him and asked him, let me finish the season. He gave me his word he would and he did. I can't thank him enough for that."


    Tice took it like a man and seemed to have no blood bad about it, and if he did at least he handled it good.

    I hope Tice finds another job. I bet he gets hired somewhere as an o line coach.
