    At the pre season opener against the rams, the vikes came out of the tunnel to not only a new video playing on the screen but a new entrance theme the "Immigrant Song"
    (as alot of you already know). I just wanted to know everyones thoughts on it and if its a permanent change.


    I for one was not a big fan of it mainly because I loved our old entrance theme so much, and the immigrant
    song didnt seem to go over well with the crowd it seemed. anyways ill shut up and leave you with a SKOL Vikes!!!
    I think you are confused. The immigrant song has been used for years & is not new. Bring in the horns is the newer one & sucks more than Monica Lewinski.
    He isn't confused.
    Bring in da horns was last year's warm up song.

    It was played during pregame and during breaks, not during introductions.
    The video introduction was the Vikings ship coming out of the sky and crossing the Twin Cities into the metrodome.
    At the rams game, this video intro was replaced with one that featured player shots and the Immigrant song.
    Only the music wasn't loud enough, the video was out of sync, and nobody in the tunnel knew when to come out.
    Overall it sucked.

    I am willing to give it another chance at the Aug 30 game (as if I have a say in it).
    I hope they get it together this time...
    That's what I was trying to say in a sense. I was trying to say before last year or last year & 2005, the immigrant song was used & years prior to that, so the immigrant song isn't "new" (to us Vikings fans) as he said. Yes, last year was B.I.T.H., but then they went back to the immigrant song this year. So it was only on a 1-2 year hiatus.
    Are we sure they are evening canceling B.I.T.H?

    The Immigrant song was fine.

    What irked me was that the Rams offensive starters were introduced but none of our players were individually introduced.

    Really? None of our players were introduced?
    I wonder who dropped the ball on that one.

    It was strange.
    They introduced the Rams offense, then the music ramped up, and the whole team ran out of the ship, with no individual introductions.
    It seemed like it was planned that way.

    I may be a little late in this conversation and I didn't see the intros but I like the idea of no individual introductions.
    It's a team sport and the team should be introduced as a whole.

    No one player is above the team.

    No one dropped the ball. It was & it has been that way for almost 2 years.

    They quit introducing individual Vikings players since the week or 2nd week after the Love Boat incident happened, for fear that certain players would be singled out & booed before the investigation was complete.

    And rightfully so. If you recall, there were some players names that Attorney Doyle tossed out there, that weren't even involved or on either of the boats.

    The teams decide if they want to have players introduced or not.
    The Vikings have chosen NOT to introduce individual players.
    The Rams chose to introduce their players - but did you also notice that the announcer blazed through the intros and was finished with the entire Rams starting offense before their O-Line had even emerged from the tunnel?

    Yeah - I saw what you posted further down after I replied.
    I would think, however, that continuing that "tradition" into last season and this season was less about Al & Alma's Wild Ride than emphasizing team over individuals.
