    No love for Minny on ATH

    They really did a 1-2 punch on Minnesota today on Around the Horn. Of the 4, only Jay Mariotti (a Bears fan by the way) gave the Vikings even a chance of making the playoffs. Then Kevin Garnett comes up, and MacMullen says he deserves a chance to play somewhere else where he can win, while Adande says the franchise should keep KG but should move to somewhere like Oklahoma City or Vegas!

    Well, to be fair, more people care about what they think than what you and I think...which is why they're getting paid.

    Kornheiser kind of ate his crow on PTI. They had some good things to say about our Vikes.

    Thanks for the support, ultra. I can't guarantee interesting discussion, but I can guarantee that I will ALWAYS have the Vikings as a playoff contender!!!

    And yes the PTI guys had good things to say but I enjoy their show more anyway...they seem to judge most things pretty fairly.

    Re: No love for Minny on ATH

    I enjoy watching ATH and PTI. But I would not have enjoyed those responses today. They are paid to argue. They get rewarded for arguing a point, even if it isn't their true opinion.

    Wolves stay in Minny
    KG stays in Minny
    Vikes are in it until they are mathematically out.

    Let them talk.

    Wilbon was the only guy yesterday that I saw pick the Vikes. I think that Emmitt Smith picked the Vikes also. Only two out of all those muthas.

    Good for them...but I ain't watchin' them...they are all a bunch of self-important blowhards that were hired strictly because they are a bunch of statheads...who had the connections or dumb luck of landing that gig...without the lucky break, they would be the know-it-all at the end of your local bar, the Cliff Clavens of the sports world! :lol:

    Re: No love for Minny on ATH

    Blah blah blah ... more bashing of the media for doing what they are paid to do ... which is express their opinions.
    By the way Cajun, there tends to be a lot more to it than "knowing the right person" and dumb luck landing the gig. Being on TV takes charisma and talent and is definitely not as easy as it looks ... and covering a team on a beat and actually getting to a top paper takes really good work ... it is as competitive a field as their is in the career world ...
    That said, there are plenty of them that I don't like and do like ... and to be fair to these guys ... the Vikes have a LONG road if they want to get to the playoffs ... the Steelers and Bears games look very losable and if they lose both of those contests they are likely not in even if they win the others and get to 9-7. With both of the wildcards now 7-3 and our division leader 7-3 we need a lot of help to get there ... that is just a fact.
