    Wilf defends move...

    http://www.startribune.com/510/story/158951.html

    Horsesh!t!!!

    Still a classless move no matter what he says!

    He will spend whatever it takes to get HIMSELF a championship??? What about the fans? Seems pretty selfish to me...just more proof that he doesn't have much PR savvy as an owner...he needs to hire someone to put better words in his mouth.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    probably reading into it too much with the "myself" part.

    I agree he needs to be more careful about the things he says or how he says them, but I still think he has very good intentions and truly wants the team to succeed. Seems like maybe he's just not used to being in the media spotlight and it will take him some time to get used to it.

    Cajun,

    We had just returned to the Super 8 Motel from the game and Singer, his daughter and her boyfriend and I went up to my room..

    My key card wouldn't work, so I ran back downstairs to the front dest to have it activated..

    Just then this guy walks in and says to me, Tice was just Fired, I almost thought it was a joke for a minute....But he was dead serious and it really shocked me..

    Went back to the room and put on the radio, and sure enough, it's all they where talking about..

    That was the first thing that came to my mind, how the hell can you fire a guy that just won a game for you.

    Couldn't it wait till the team meeting on Monday mourning?..

    I thought it was a very a very low blow, not very classy at all...

    I thought it would happen, win or lose the game, but not how it went down.......

    Wilf has lost some of the respect I had built up for him..


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Exactly, regardless of whether or not he asked for the response asap, you don't do it right after a win!

    Poor choice of words but I like the attitude. The only thing I would rag on Wilf about is the way the news was delivered. Wilf should not be made out to be a bad guy quite yet because I think he will prove to be a great owner very soon $$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

    Nobody said anything about that. The issue was with the delivery of tice's termination.

    Wilf has only the best intentions as well as his fellow owners that helped him make the decision to remove Tice. He said he would put the money into the team to give the new coach the players he needs, that's very promising.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    Do like I did, get over it. What's done is done and there's no going back. Lets look foward to a fun off season rather than dwell on something like Tice's firing.
