    Re: What's the cause of the pp.o slowdown?

    I just think its the off season slow down leading up to the Draft, plus the lockout/dispute limits the amount of news about and that has people down on the excitement levels a bit as well.
    Hopefully once the labour dispute is resolved and things start moving then it will pick up. Now that Childress, Favre and TJ are out of the picture then people will have more to discuss with the new blood and schemes coming in.
    Just hang in there people :laugh:

    At least thats done now.

    Maybe the new PPO iPhone app will be fun, and I kill the community area. It makes it too confusing.
    You should have made me a temporary Mod. I would have squashed all the Noodle crap. :P

    JK, don't get on yourself my friend. This is still the best Vikings discussion site on the net.

    I would look at fixing the "Offseason" thread so that it pops when you click the "Recent Topics" button, with the others that have new posts in it. I think alot of people don't understand that you have to go directly to the forum to see if anything new has been posted instead of just clicking on the "Recent Topics" button.

    Plenty of PM's were sent to me about killing the Favre haters and lovers...or they would leave.
    What a bunch of girls.

    I think the lockout might have something to do with it. The terrible season did not help.

    Mine is due those and the beautiful weather here. No reason to stay in the house like in WI with that shit as winter.

    Arizona FTW!

    Yeah the last month should have been about all the free agent visits and rumored visits and signing and bitching about players that got scooped, with Marrdro poking at the yutz's in the front office.....etc

    But its lawyers, players and owners pointing fingers and waiting for the dome roof patches to dry and well politicians debating a stadium bill. The kind of stuff that moves too slow as the weather is getting warmer.

    Re: What's the cause of the pp.o slowdown?

    There's a few reasons I have stopped frequenting the site as often as I used to, but mainly I have just been busy with real life. I began my teaching career, and let me tell you, teachers don't get paid nearly enough (at least the ones that take their jobs seriously). I also volunteer my time after school a couple of days a week to help run intramurals with our P.E. teacher. I basically have very little extra time to peruse the net for fun.

    I also did not like when the format changed, though I'm getting used to it now. That and the general tone around here seemed to change, which is understandable considering how dramatic everything has been with our beloved Vikings these past couple of years.

    I for one am hoping for an exciting draft class and a couple key free agent pickups to get the positive mojo flowing once again.
    Rock out with your cock out!!!

    My favorite PPO scout.

    First, you are a great american for taking on the noble role of a "Teacher". I agree, you guys/gals get paid way to little for what your asked to do.

    Second, I am getting by without you this year, but just barely. Take alook at my mock if you get time and tell me were I have guys under/over projected.
