    Why not? this is only the best (at very least best vikings) site on the internet. Made so by some of the excellent insights by many members, and alot of hard work by webby and the mods....... so thanks to those all, and i'm sure somebody in the vike's offices reads this.
    That wasn't the question.
    It was - does Zygi read this?


    I'm sure that every NFL team has people in their front office who pay attention to the pulse of the fans - they'd be stupid not to do so.
    But I'm absolutely 100% sure that Ted Leonsis - the owner of the Washington Capitals and Mark Cuban - the owner of the Dallas Mavericks do so.
    Both are techies.
    I bet Paul Allen reads some Seahawks boards, as well.

    But Zygi?
    Somehow, I doubt it.
    He's a builder, not a computer geek.

    Ok, i paid more attention to the previous posts than to the original question and got off task. My point was going to be that whether Zygi does or does not, somebody probably reads this and passes the information up the chain. i distracted myself. my bad


    VikesFan787, Thanks for the awesome sig!

    So, I was listening to my favorite radio morning show here in the DC area last week.
    The DJ "Elliot" who is a huge hockey fan, had Ted Leonsis the owner of the Washington Capitals on his show.
    This was right after they had just signed Alex Ovechkin to a $124 million contract.
    Anyway, Ted was talking about the deal and the direction that the Caps were going, blah, blah, blah, but then he mentioned that he frequently visits the Caps fan sites and reads through their message boards, etc.. Not only that, he said (not sure if he was BSing) that he takes a lot of what he reads to heart.

    Anyhow, this got me to wondering if Zygmunt frequents this site or other sites related to the Vikings. I remember hearing early in the season, that he was concerned about the fans lack of warmth towards Chilly. How did he gauge this lack of warmth?


    Just wondering what you guys think. Do you think Zygi or any Viking players visit PPO?
    I would guess that most people that are involved with the team do some browsing through team sites. I doubt zygi spends alot of time just surfing, heck he only had time to make it to one tailgate party all season. I doubt that they take anything too seriously though.
    I would guess most of the players read one site or another on a semi-regular basis.

    Nope.
    Never watched it.

    You guys crack me up. I kind of wanted to mention that "hidden" member but thought maybe I was reading too much into it. Why would someone remain hidden?
    Do we have a closet Viking fan?

    Dear Hidden one,

    It's okay to come out.

    I doubt that Zygi (or Leonsis) actually reads the fan forums, but I would be surprised if their PR people didn't provide him summaries.
    Actually, with the Vikings' PR, maybe I wouldn't be surprised.
    Having met Ted Leonsis - and worked at the same company as him - I know for a fact that he answered his own e-mails.
    I sent him one concerning an idea I had for AOLTW purchasing Adelphia Cable Systems once the Rigas boys got in trouble with the law and he responded within a couple days.

    Leonsis is a techie, so I'm sure if he says he checks fan forums that he does.
    Hell - Mark Cuban posts his personal email on the scoreboard at Mavs games every night and also answers all his own email.

    As to Zygi - I don't think there's a chance in hell he reads PPO.
    He's a different kind of beast.

    =Z=
    Listening to Ted, who is somewhat of a regular on the morning show, I definately got the impression he was being sincere.
    I guess not every owner is in touch with their fan base BUT should be.
