    Re: Vikings | Smith wants to return to the Vikings

    This is just my opinion, but.....

    I'd take him back, but only with him being aware and accepting of having to compete from the bottom rung for a position on the team. Let him prove how much he's willing to turn himself and his Life around.

    A buddy of mine who I work with used to live in Seattle and rooted for the Seahawks (geographical fanship-he's actually a Giants fan). Every so often, we'll go and watch the games together at a Bully's sports bar, and I'll say something like "I'm sure glad we picked up Koren Robinson in FA" or "It's too bad the Seahawks didn't keep him, huh?". To which he'll reply, "Do you always have to remind me of that stupid move?" LOL

    I guess the point I'm making is that I would hate to have us discard Onterrio, only to have some other team (especially a division rival) pick him up and let him revive his career with them.

    Also.....Wilf talks about this team being a "Family".....let's see if he means it, or if it's just another empty proclamation by an owner.

    Purple Pride, Purple Pride, Purple Pride!!!!! Yeah right, Red.

    Do you use the same analysis for your freinds. If someone you care about has a problem with drugfs or alcohol, do you just abandon them becuase "once a druggy always a druggy"?
    Who said that statement?

    Out of any fan base in the NFL, we Viking's fans should know this not to be true.

    Look at Cris Carter's life....he made a change.

    I agree, I guess I just didn't phrase it right. I never was good at english.

    Anyways, at the end of the end the best back on our roster talent-wise is going to be Smith. If he says he has made a change, why not beleive him. Is it really that big of a deal? I don't think so.
