    While I have typically agreed with your view in the past, I'm starting to wonder if its not "us" the fans who are actually letting ourselves down.
    Could it simply be that we are going into each season blindly thinking that our team is better than it really is?
    It seams like I've been disapointed
    every season since I became a fan!
    exactly, welcome to the universal thread that binds all NFL fans.

    LMAO!
    You too?
    I go in every season thinking "this is it", just to be let down more often than not.

    But, its part of the fun of being a fan.
    I am giddy and excited leading up to the season.
    I do care how they do but I still have a strong passion for the team even when they suck.

    Re: Vikings confident frustrated fans still support team

    This year has been very frustrating for me.

    I have lost my temper more times than not.
    The mantra of Childress coming in was supposed to be that of a team that was disciplined and efficient to make the WCO go.
    Being one of the most penalized, if not the number one, team in the league would have caused me to pull my hair out by now, if I had any.

    Then the play calling.
    We will just leave it at that.

    Then you add in Childress's elitist attitude, cumulating in the release of MRob, was the straw that broke my back.


    I truly believe that the Minnesotan, laid back attitude actually condones some of what the Vikes produce on the field and allows to continue within the organization that being underachieving and average is "Ok" in some way.
    An uprising by fans and the possibility of not selling out the dome should get Wilf's attention, if it will/would in any way hurt his chances of getting a "sweet" deal on a new stadium.

    Rebellion is good some times, if not only to wake up the people who have the power to make change a reality when the situation demands it.
