    Whats up with Fowler?

    So he padded his resume, big deal.

    Anyone that played little league can claim they were in the little league world series, most us just didn't get to the nationally televised point.

    As for playing in the NFL, he was cut from Cincinatti, but he was on their roster in training camp. It's not necessarily a lie, but a technicality. Two years ago, I was on the roster for a semi-pro team, the Penn-Ohio Raiders, but I sprained my back before the season started and never played a down. I don't say that I played semi pro football, but my name was on the program.

    As for the degree, at least he graduated and got his degree, who cares what it was in. He's obviously been a successful businessman to this point.

    Looks like he juiced his resume a bit. What do you think will happen? Does this mean he won't get the team or is it a mere embarassment for him?

    It means "None of the above".

    Padded resumes are commonplace today. Everyone does it from politicians to hopeful managerial applicants. They don't flat out lie...they merely embellish the truth. Sometimes a LOT.

    Of course, I still consider that to be a lie, and I wonder how many more "embellishments" will be springing forth as the next few weeks pass by.

    As I said before, the jury is still out on Fowler. If he is able to swing the deal, then commits himself and his resources to fielding a quality team, I have no beef with him. If he winds up swinging the deal then realizes that he's overextended and starts cutting corners (much like the Squirrel lover), then I will begin renaming him and blasting him from one end of these forums to the other.

    The ball is - as they say - in his court now. Let's see which way he plays it.

    It means that he won't have any qualms about rehiring George O'Leary to coach the defense next year! :lol:

    Whats up with Fowler?

    Looks like the dirt that is being stirred is from an Earlier Biography that who knows when was written.

    So something like this happened. X ammount of years ago he is writing a biography his life is a little plain compared to other rich bastages to he makes some stuff up.

    2005 he wants to buy the vikes. He pretty much seals the deal. The media is like WTF is this guy? Media boss says learn all you can about Fowler so we can write a story on him.

    Media grabs his bigraphy reads it.

    ESPN: Today we announce the sell of the Vikings to Fowler. He played for the Bengals for a short period of time yada yada yada.

    Press conference: Mr.Fowler do you think your time in the NFL as a player will help you run the team? Mr. Fowler do you think your buisiness degree will help you out running the team?

    Fowler : Son of a bitch! Where are they getting this stuff!! Oh hell my bio damn it.

    Next day PR for Fowler sends out an updated fact sheet. To avoid issues in the future.

    This isn't an issue in my opinion. It would be a different story if Fowler said all this stuff in an interview yesterday but this is just someone trying to gain backround on him from his biography and him immediately putting any inconsitencies to rest.

    I know its probably not a biggy, but that atricle kind of irked me a little.

    I hope this article isnt reflective of his presonality. We dont need a cheap owner followed by a bulsh*tter, thats for sure.

    The things in the article are quite petty though, and if he has anything substantial "hiding in his closet" im sure the league will find that out in weeks to come.
