    Re: Why does local press HATE Vikes

    The worst thing this year was in the Pioneer Press the day before the second Viking/Packer game and guess who was on the cover of the Vikings extra?? Brett Favre, and it was titled "The Favre Factor." I could not believe it, I was so mad.

    Re: Why does local press HATE Vikes

    I agree that we often get the short end of the stick. Maybe its because we've never won a super bowl. Maybe its because they think the team is going to flop like it usually does. It's hard being a Vikings fan, but its even more sad that LOCAL media gives up hope so easily.

    If we only listened to what the Minneapolis media said, we'd all be Packer fans. Sad but true.

    It is a trend in Sports Media throughout the USA. Here in St. Louis, the Rams bashing is overdone. I have heard and read the same style tin many cities. It's easy to write bashing stories. This style doesn't take much effort.

    Did anyone else here Sid taking Ticey to task today on the press conference on NFL network ... Sid can barely talk he's so damn old and could hardly form a sentence.

    Sid asked something like, "How can this team poss. consider itself in a postion to compete against the "elite" teams in the NFL?" ... Just being an all around a$$ about it ... Ticey said something like, With all the rotation on the O-line and injury's its tough. That it begins with the "O" and "D" lines.

    Then Sid said something else negative and I switched the channel. Sid, Reuse, and the rest just need to be ran out of town or put out to pasture in S.D..

    In Canada here, local media tends to be the opposite. I think it has something to do with americans love of hero destruction, or tabloidism where negative press seems to sell better.

    Its not just the Minn. local media. It is everywhere. I live in Illinois and its not just because it is bears country. The Vikes are disliked for whatever the reason. This year it is the love boat, the previous years it was Moss, and before that it was Warren Moon hitting his wive or Krammer and Millard drinking.

    For some reason the fact Favre had a drinking problem and a Vicoden addiction, Jamal Lewis sells drugs and does jail time, Curruth is in jail for murder, or Irvin was busted every other week for drugs just doesn't seem as important as Tice scalping tickets or Randy squirting an official.

    Even all of the websites I go to to get the latest NFL news always seems to be negative about the VIkes.

    I personally just ignore it. I used to get mad, but I guess if you cant play the sport and can only write about it then they must have a bit of jealously.

    I will go on record that if Minnesota won three straight super bowls you woul never here them talked about in the same group as the Cowboys, Steelers, or Patriots. Less face it we are the red headed step children of the NFL. So the only thing to do is to hope Ziggy is true to his word and brings the Viking fans some superbowl wins and just let the purple hater eat crow.

    No, the Twin Cities media, especially Reusse, is very anti-Vikings. Believe me, here in Packer land (help me!) things are much more positive. I'm always stunned reading the Trib when I go home for breaks. I think Reusse's puppy must have been run over by a Minnesota Viking when he was little.
