    Re: Vikings ready to dismiss Foley

    They needed a scapegoat for a poor draft . . . that was Foley. Bye-Bye!

    Not a bad gig for him. Works a couple months, picks up a check for at least 300k (buyout). Too bad he'll never find another job in the NFL . . . unless it's as the Vice President of Custodial Engineering! Yes, you know he'd make his job as a janitor sound glamorous on his resume, too!

    I think that's only part of it.. To get Foley out the door and take any criticism of what happened in the draft with him is only a positive side-effect of dumping him because he lied on his résumé and was (by all accounts) a bit of a wanker to work with.

    Bye bye ass-wipe. Glad you're gone.

    Studwell and Tice managed 3 or 4 pretty decent/good drafts. Childress doesn't strike me to be an an idiot. That leaves ass-wipe foley to pin a VERY poor draft on.
    Halo 4. Start another fight.

    Re: Vikings ready to dismiss Foley

    I like the Ron Wolf comment I wrote about before the draft. Committee approaches DO NOT WORK!! It's nice to pretend to have a democratic stance on decision making, but ultimately someone's feelings get hurt. I wish the Vikes had an experienced GM to lay down the law. Although it'd be difficult now with the way Childress is constructing his team . . . I have a feeling he's the one laying down the law around Winter Park. That's lot of responsibilities and power for a first year coach . . . it's a gamble . . . make me proud, Brad, make me proud! (and don't f@%k it up!)

    FOLEY FIRED!!!!!!!

    Updated: May 3, 2006, 2:30 PM ET
    Foley had been with team since January
    Associated Press


    MINNEAPOLIS -- Fran Foley, the Minnesota Vikings' vice president of player personnel, was fired by the team on Wednesday after acknowledging there were inaccuracies on the resume he presented to the team when he was hired in January.

    The Vikings made the announcement in a one sentence statement.

    Foley had signed a three-year contract with Minnesota, coming over from the San Diego Chargers. But he admitted to several inaccuracies on the resume he provided the team, including his early work history and exaggerating his playing career at Framingham State College.

    Foley was part of a three-way executive structure that included coach Brad Childress and vice president of football operations Rob Brzezinski. He had just finished helping direct the team's draft.

    On a resume given to the Vikings, Foley said that he held coaching positions with the Citadel, Rutgers and Colgate when he was actually a graduate assistant at all three schools.

    He also said that he played four seasons at Framingham State, when he only played two.

    He said we got great draft picks and is secretly laughing behind our backs.

    Re: Vikings ready to dismiss Foley

    This whole thing is completely retarded ... Foley was asked to do a job that is probably out of his ability range ... the team is taking heat for a questionable draft ... and he is getting a lot of the blame as if he was the only one making decisions on Saturday and Sunday.
    I am not a Foley fan by no means ... but he is just being made a scapegoat to shut people up that are whining about the draft and personel decisions ... I have a feeling Childress had as much to do with everything that has happened for this team in the last couple of months ... but can't hang him out to fry ... so Foley and his lying ass on his resume fits the bill .... lets hope Wilf cleans this up and starts back moving in the right direction.
