View Full Version : Breaking News! Vikes Players Investigated for Boat Party

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Authorities on Tuesday were investigating whether Minnesota Vikings players were involved in allegations of lewd behavior on two Lake Minnetonka charter boats last week.

No criminal charges had been filed by Tuesday evening.

Stephen Doyle, an attorney representing the boat owners, said at least 20 Vikings players were part of a group of 90 people who went out on a pair of Al and Alma's charter cruises last Thursday night.

Doyle said the outing ended early and the boats returned to shore when staff members complained to the captains that some of the people on board were engaging in sexual acts and taking off their clothes.

"The scope of it, the nature of it and the location of it add up to pretty bizarre behavior," said Doyle.

The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office said the incident was reported Sunday. Sgt. Haans Vitek declined to comment on whether any Vikings were involved.

"From what we're hearing, it certainly sounds that way, but we want to get it right from the people that were there," Vitek said. "We're trying to sort out all the facts and see if any of it even rises to a criminal act, or whether it was just people who were offended."

The team issued a one-paragraph statement saying: "The organization has been made aware of the allegations involving our players and we take these allegations very seriously. We are working diligently to gather as many facts as possible. At this time, we have no further comment."

If this is true, I don't know what to say. These morons think they can do whatever they want because they play in the NFL.

At least win a game or two before you start messing things up for the teams reputation (like we had one in the first place).

Go ahead and post your opinions/rants.
