    Viking website (others) observation




    Earlier today I stumbled across another Viking fan site (Battle Wagon) while I was looking for specific directions to the PPO parking lot, I checked it out (While feeling like a cheating husband) and thought it was interesting, It's obviously a much smaller scale site than here, From there I checked their links to see if PPO was listed, just curious, and wondered if other similar sites would promote the "Competition" Yes it was, They had a few other sites also posted, I could only find one that had PPO marked as a viking fan site-(Kansas Viking).
    There is even a site called PP.com instead of org. Dawgs, Tailgate, and Age to sum up the others (I am certainly not in any way trying to spam them). For the life of me I cannot think of a single reason why these other websites fail to mention this one, It makes no sense, Aren't we all fans of the same Jeckyl and Hyde, blood pressure raising team??? Maybe some sites fans have bad mouthed others? I only spent a half hour skipping around these, One thing I noticed is that PPO looked to be far and away the most in depth, A couple had tons of links filling the screen making it look flashy, But ESPN, and NFL.com links everywhere didn't make it very personal, One had 1 online member , another had 0, Every site also seemed to have their own gazebo in one of the lots, I guess I just thought this was the only one. I have a habit of maybe reading way too much into things sometimes, Hell-maybe some fans are members of all fan sites, I like the whole conspiracy reason better though.
    Even if the Vikings lose, I can still find happiness in Bears, and Packer losses.

    Sites do not advertise or link other sites for the mere fact there is competition between the sites.

    They do not want their members to post a link to us, or us post a link to them, because members may go there and never come back.

    We are good friends with some of the other sites, and some not so good friends.

    Geez, I had no idea there was some history of bad blood until I stumbled across a long post from a Vikinginwis (I think) former member who was crying about how this site and K-Fan are disliked for some reason by vikingboard or wherever, What in the world that has to do with football could cause such animosity between sites of the same team?
    They have a link to PPO Sucks???? Sounds very professional, Sorry to bring up an old sore subject

    Seriously the job that you guys do on this site is phenomenal.
    Thanks again.

    The only way you are going to make this game more appealing to the public than it was before is if there are on field orgies at halftime and the domes become massive opium dens."

    Neat, but it's like a small town...boring.

    PurplePride.org is like New York City, while PurplePride.com, Battle Wagon, etc. are like Toledo and Topeka.
