    Viking Fan Poll

    O.K., I want to get your opinion on this topic. I think it may be interesting to find out just what would happen to the Vikings fans if the team should ever leave the City of Minneapolis. I'm not saying it will happen but, IF?

    It would be tuff. But I would probably root for the new team at first. And hope sometime in the future minnesota would regain there franchise and would retain the name VIKINGS.

    Viking Fan Poll

    Depends on the level of animosity related to the move. If they pull an Irsay and leave town unexpectedly in the middle of the night, or pull a Modell, then I think most Viking fans would say to hell with them. Then they would await a new franchise to be located in the Twin Cities.

    Myself, not being a TC resident or ever having lived there, I don't know. To me, a lot of my Viking fandom goes back to the days when the team played outdoors in the cold and snow. Even though the suits and p*ssies have ruined that, it's still a part of the Viking heritage and mystique. If they relocated to, say Los Angeles, I'm not sure that mystique remains attached to them. And if they move to the left coast, I sure as heck won't remain a season ticket holder since airfare out there will probably be much more. A move out there would probably make it much more difficult to remain a fan.

    Because of the Nordic heritage of the locals, I would think the "Vikings" name and logo would have to be reserved for Minnesota if they ever got another team there, like happened with the Browns in Cleveland.
    SKOL VIKINGS!

    Being from NY originally I would probably root for the Giants if the Vikings ever leave Minnesota.

    Since there are so many players on the vikes that I like, they would be my favorite team no matter where they went. Although I think there is no way they leave, they would still remain my favorite team without a doubt, if they did.

    Viking Fan Poll

    Depends where they would move to. IF L.A i think i would still follow them because it means i can see all there game, well at least all there home games. I catch all the laker home games, so if they moved down there, i prolly get to see the vikes more often. :cheers:


    I dont know about anywhere else. However i do want the vikes to stay in minny since its a reason to go there, see mall of america and even a reason to see snow if its winter time.

    I probably would wait for their to be a new expansion team in Minnesota, like what happened with the Browns. I couldn't root for the LA Vikings. Just couldn't.

    I would probably stay with the Vikings because I just can't see myself rooting for any other team.

    It would be hard at first but I would continue to root for them, because they would still be the Vikes to me. BUT it will NOT happen.
