    Before we jump to any conclusions, we need to make sure of who did what.

    Even if they were guilty of inappropraite behavior, its still good they help out charities.

    Calm down. Does that 66 in your name stand for you age? Did your teenage years take place in the days in which the Waltz was the fad? This was a mistake by SOME of the Vikings players and as fans, we do have a right to look at this situation and find some humor in it. Why sit around and piss and moan about it like you? The season has already been painful enough to deal with. :roll:

    I agree....it is good they help out charities....however....professional athletes ARE role models...I dont care what anyone says, including Charles Barkley. Sports is a Billion dollar industry, with highly paid, therefor visibly participants. Fair or not, it is the truth. They need to think twice about their actions before doing them.

    My daughter (not really a viking fan :sad: ) said a couple of things to me when she heard of this.....

    1. I am sorry this had to happen to your team
    2. What are these players thinking, dont they realize they are role models.

    Whoa now, Vikes2611. Sounds like you need a little calming down yourself. No need to dis someone who expresses their opinion, like you are free to do also. I can find humor in the situation, a little anyway. Keeps me from crying. And perhaps we should go back to "the days in which the Waltz was the fad". At least a greater number of the sports figures back then had a bit more class, or better judgement, by and large.

    I remember reading about when the Vikings were first created, their first head coach was a real fire breather called Norm Van Brocklin. At that time the Vikes shared a college campus for their facilities. Van Brocklin told the team, "There will be NO fraternization with the coeds. We will not fine you. We will not suspend you. We will just kick your a$$ off the team." God bless him.

    I will withhold judgement until all the facts are in before I rant and rave. The Vikes have dropped about as low as a team can go right now, if the allegations are true, but at least Wilf sounds like the man who will come down like a ton of bricks on anyone who steps out of line. Thank God. Then I can start feeling proud about my Vikes again.

    Keep the faith!

    No...the 66 does not stand for my age, and yes I am withholding total judgement until the facts are out, but like I tell me kids, if you think there is going to be trouble where you are, get out of there. My kids know enough to do this.....but grown men dont.....grown men who are role models. And now it comes out Culpepper was on the boat....what kind of leadership is that??

    Sad times I tell you....very sad times.....

    Watch out, don't mention anything about your kids being effected by this. I did that because my son is a Vike fan and I got told I'm not a good enough parent... :roll:
    Go Pack go!!!

    Are you sure it just doesn't have to do with the fact that he's a Vikes fan & you're a Packer fan! Just kidding Scott :lol: Do the best you can.
