    Vikings | Birk won't play for less

    Sid Hartman, of the Star Tribune, reports the agent for injured Vikings C Matt Birk (hip, hernia) recently was quoted as saying, "Under no circumstances will Matt Birk play for the Vikings for one penny less than what his contract calls for," which is $3.94 million in 2006. Owner Zygi Wilf was reportedly surprised by the statement. "If Birk can play football he will be paid his contract," Wilf said.

    I like how Wilf said that these things are private, and these agents keep serving it up to the public forum.

    WTF AGENTS?

    STFU!!!..........STFU!!!!!!................

    Re: Vikings | Birk won't play for less

    I'm wondering, did the Vikings then, ask Birk to take a pay cut in private?...

    But I agree with the fact, any kink of negotiations should be held confidental till a done deal is signed and delivered......

    Sid is a dick anyway......

    Sounds like a great agent LMAO!


    Birk: Hey throw a hint out there I want a raise.......

    Agent: I don't know Matt, remember last time I talked out loud?

    Birk: Yeah I do, now listen this is your chance let them know I want a little bit more money don't screw it up.

    Agent: Matt.......I'm Scared

    Birk: Look I'm Ivy league, I wrote down what I want you to say on a note card. It reads ~ Matt Birk will absolutely not be playing for the Vikings unless he gets a few pennies more then what he makes now~

    Agent: Easy enough lets do this................


    Agent to Wilf: Matt Birk will absolutely not play for the Vikings.......unless you pay him...EXACTLY what you said you would!

    Wilf...........um......ok.

    LMAO, I'm glad to see your secret agent spyware that you ordered from the box-tops of your fruit loops is working. That is exactly what happened.

    Good point Ned, that would make sense if he went public then.

    What did Sid think he was reporting a breaking news story or what? Why doens't he do a little more reporting on this, that lazy hole of a reporter. Get out from behind that computer and get us a story not a couple of lines of drivel.

    Do we not have enough going on with Daunte and Brad that Sid has to start more with Birk. I am really sick of people that do not want to live up to contracts that are signed, be it the management or the players!
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Re: Vikings | Birk won't play for less

    With everyone questioning how PeP will recover from his knee surgery and if it will take him back a step in his play, I ask the same about Birk sometimes..

    I mean, come on, the guy took over a year to heal from a major hip surgery.

    I question that, is BIRK, going to be the same player as days of old?..

    I sure hope so, but not sure he will be.....
