    Whats really sad is that they are FA's at all.

    They have some more to take care of that are due next year as well that will cause some ugly ripples through the locker room if they don't take care of them.

    Again, you extend your starts 1 or even 2 years out. You don't let them hit FA for cripes sake.
    It seems so straight forward to me that I can't see how you don't get it!

    Not knowing the salary cap, the term or rules of free agency, or the revenue sharing means you are trying to negotiate a long term contract in the blind.
    I have every confidence that these issues will be resolved once the new cba is in place.
    Just so there is no confusion, both Rice and Edwards were offered long term contracts prior to the lockout. Neither one wanted to sign because they think they can get more elsewhere.
    The Vikings can't force them to sign and they can't over pay.

    Of the free agents the Vikings have, I think they can afford to lose most of them. I don't think it will happen, but I think the Vikings are in better shape than most teams with regard to their free agents.

    he can't see it because he doesn't want to see it.

    He seems quite content hating... sorry, expressing disdain towards specific members of the team for no apparent reason, and coming up with any excuse his mind can fabricate to support his "reasoning".

    Even if 95% of people disagree with him, and have overwhelming proof to say otherwise, he sticks to his guns.

    Think about it, when's the last time Marrdro has conceded defeat in a 'discussion'.

    Good point.

    I wonder which players will fall under his wrath this season?

    He already has Frzier with 'no power', and calling Musgrave Musgrove.

    The ironic thing is, he claims ever since Browner left, he refuses to have a favourite player. He sure has no problem with doing the exact opposite though.

    I thought that list looked a little funny when I first saw it. I think it is missing the free agents who have been in the league for awhile.

    Here's the other list I have for wide receivers.

    Randy Moss,
    Terrell Owens,
    Chad Ochocinco,
    Steve Smith,
    Plaxico Burress,
    Braylon Edwards

    I believe this list is only referring to people who would have been RFAs under the old CBA that are now eligible to become UFAs
    None

    Don't flatter yourself. There is clearly competition for that title.

    BTW: since you've changed your avatar, you've become my favorite poster. Much rather see the board populated with blue butts, then Marrdro's mug hamming it up with some slimy fish.
