    Great to have you sign up!
    Looking forward to your posts, anyone that bashes the illogical deserves instant respect in my book. . . . even if I'm the recipient.
    Thanks!


    I often monitor and admonish the inconsistent, illogical and numerically challenged.
    But only when it is appropriate and warranted.

    Once I figure out the 'controls' and 'visual enhancements' here, I'll add my sig line from prior forums ( "When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all" ).

    This is my first post after a long-time lurking convinced me that this forum is well run, diverse in opinions and personalities, and informative.

    I’ve was finally able to log in to an ID I established a long time ago.

    That’s a long story, with info on firewalls that I may discuss with Mr.
    Webby, for another time…

    I fully anticipate some ‘Welcomes’, ‘Skol Vikes’, ‘Have-a-beer’s’, but also expect the ‘low-post count = limited knowledge teasing’ rightfully owed to rookie posters.

    Bio; I’m an old-school fan, joining in 1969, when, as an impressionable teen, I first saw a pre-game feature of the Purple People Eaters tearing up opposing offenses.

    I live in Connecticut, work with statistics in insurance, and will comment on any misuse of stats, logic, or both, by announcers, analysts or posters.

    I believe in the Grant/Childress disciplinary approach, but not to the extent it was practiced by Les Steckel.

    I also believe in a balanced team (good talent on O, D and ST) that are disciplined enough to play like Vikings outdoors (i. e in a ‘Valhalladium’) again, and behave like gentlemen off the field.

    I’m not sure if Wilf and the ‘Triangle of Authoritarianism’ will lead the current team to a Super Bowl win, but I think they are headed in the right direction.

    OK, where’s my oar?
    I’m ready to help row all the Viking fans in this cyber-longboat to a Super Bowl win via my insightful posts!

    SKOL!

    That post is not within 2 standard deviations of the whining and doubting theme that seems so prevalent on this site recently. Therefore it is statistically insignificant!


    Stats,like orphans, were born to be abused! lol. Well that's not really funny,sorry!

    Anyway, welcome to the site. Look forward to your thoughts.

    Welcome Purplexing and it's good that you stopped lurking and you started posting!
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Glad to have you aboard and may have to lean on your stats knowledge (SAS master?) at times.
