    Welcome all new Vikings fans!

    Yes, there are new members who will be on the site due to the Favre signing.

    And I want to be the first to welcome them.

    I have already seen people throwing out terms like "bandwagon" and "Favre Followers"... And IMHO that is silly.
    How many people on this forum used to be referred to as 98ers or Moss Sniffers?
    How many people were attacked when they joined after AD was drafted? Everyone has different reasons for becoming a Vikings fan and joining this forum.
    Let's not lose sight of the fact that we all want the same thing - to see the Vikings win.

    In the end, it's not the name on the jersey, it's the logo on the helmet.
    So whether you have bled purple for years, or you have just recently seen the purple light, welcome to PP.O!
    This truly is the best Vikings site in the tubes!

    +1, welcome

    Don't forget, there's also just fans who have been fans a while, but stumbled here looking for Favre info, thats how I became a member (not looking for favre info, but something Vikings related, can't remember what)
    Had to sign up to say something, and haven't stopped yet.

    Sure. Welcome to all new fans of the Vikings! [size=1pt]But only to those who are planning to stick around and continue to cheer on this team after Favre is gone. For those who came on board because Favre is here but are planning on leaving as soon as he does, GTFO. [/size]

    The more the merrier. At least they will buy tickets, judging by the spike in sales. We might has lost 3-4 but we gained many. I love it. Can't wait to hear the roar of the dome. WOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO

    Re: Welcome all new Vikings fans!

    And to clarify,

    There is a lot of excitement in the air regarding the Vikings since the Favre signing.
    And by virtue of that, there will be some new members.
    Simply dismissing every one of them as a Favre crotch sniffer is going to put off a LOT of new members.

    Sure, there will be the crotch sniffers, but they will be weeded out soon enough.
    For now, I am giving the new fans the benefit of the doubt, and welcoming them to PP.O.
    I like to see our fan base growing happy and healthy.

    Actually, I only had coffee for breakfast this morning. Perhaps that's part of the problem.

    I'd agree with that assessment. I'll also gladly volunteer some time to be the gardener with a bottle of Roundup to do some of the weeding.

    What do you call a guy who was a Favre crotchsniffer, but was one before we even had him?
