    Vikings - Playing with numbers

    Anyone else’s eyes bug out this morning when they saw Sid’s column? (Must … resist … jokes….) It included the following assertion: “There has been almost a 70 percent turnover in personnel since [Vikings coach Brad Childress] got here.”....

    Re: Vikings - Playing with numbers

    I still say some of the idiots that make comments on these articles are the best part of the article........

    ALAN PAGE is a classic example......

    ALAN PAGE says:

    If Sid thinks Chilliwack is a winner then know you all know I am right when I say Chilli is an IDIOT!!!

    Viks will be 6-10 or 5-11…. Chilli’s guys?? Wow tha is exciting… as vanilla as his pitiful personality…. What a schmuck..

    Mudhen - you forgaot #4 - FIRE CHILDRESS

    Too Bad there isn’t some turnover in the hrad coachiong position….


    Happy Monday !!

    LOL! I had to do a double take on that one. I was like Alan Page said what? No way Page would ever say that.

    Then I checked the article.

    You can say all you want about Sid being senile and out of touch but I'll take his writing any day over most of the other Twin City media. At least he's honest and truthful. Something I cannot say for the rest of the Twin City media which are hateful and just plain mean.

    What is this guy trying to say? He proved that sid was off by 8 percentage points.

    I think it was a good comment to Sid. He thought Sid had gone off the deep end when he quoted that "almost 70 percent" figure. He didn't believe it until he really studied it.
