    Vikings' actions concern Krause

    The Vikings' player personnel director job, which became vacant Wednesday with the dismissal of Fran Foley, has drawn the interest of former Vikings safety Paul Krause, a pro football hall of famer.

    "After playing with the Vikings all those years (12), the Purple People Eaters, the Super Bowls, I see the Vikings need some people who know what football players should do and look like, and I think I qualify for that," said Krause, who still owns the NFL career record for interceptions (81).

    Krause, 64, a Dakota County commissioner and real estate developer, is bothered by what he perceives as the organization's fall from grace.

    "I have a lot of pride and would like to see the Vikings get back to what they used to be," he said. "I don't think the Vikings' organization is anywhere near what it used to be."

    Krause said he wanted to bring 36 NFL hall of famers to the Twin Cities in August for a charity fundraiser golf tournament at the new Meadows course at Mystic Lake Casino but was rejected.

    "I made a presentation, and a letter was sent that (Mystic Lake) wanted nothing to do with football players," Krause said. "I take that as a slap at me."

    True, but it's a league-wide problem.

    Let's see - a casino doesn't want anything to do with football players.

    Right.

    Casinos would hire Jeffrey Dahmer if they thought it would bring in more gamblers to lose money.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I think the point of the article is that Paul Krause wants to be the new Personnel Director because he wants the Vikings to get back to what they were. I think it'd be a great idea.

    Paul Krause is a great Viking name and probably a precent decent guy, but does that make him a good personnel guy? I think we need a sr. guy with solid experience on today's NFL talent. If you want a PR guy for the Vikes to go around and present a good image of the vikes to the fans and media, than maybe a guy like Paul Krause is your guy.

    I like Paul Krause as a player, but does he have the qualifications to be a Personnel Director? Of couse, he could just pad his resume a little... :lol:

    Hasn't the Mystic casino been following the athlete gambling epidemic news latley, they should definitely want a piece of the action.

    LOL

    Krause is right, there have been some negatives from the past few years that have tainted the MN community's view of the NFL players.

    That rejection wouldn't have happened in another NFL community that I can think of of hand.

    There could have been something else behind the rejection???

    That pyscho was thankfully dismissed from this world in prison. A broom handle did the trick if I remember correctly.
