I slightly touched this topic in a other post...but as I can see it has been over looked quite abit so I started a post for it. ( sorry webby)


Now hear me out...I think this weekend, we as vike fans who over the past few weeks have argued, said some things we may regret about the team and so forth, should come up with a unity item or something of that sort ( livestrong bands) to wear for this game! The players have the fro, we should start something for ourselfs! This may sound corny to some, but to me its a great way to show the Purple Faith and Come together! So shout out some suggestions and maybe we could vote or something, but it give it a thought or two.



SKOL 2 ALL!

What about having all the local fans (in Twin Cities) call into the radio shows with unwavering support of our boys in this desperqate time of need. I know the radio guys are having a field day with all of the turmoil. Hows about getting the dome rockin' like it was the Super Bowl, lets have players feed off of the fans emotions. I now this may be unrealistic, but I'll be utterly disgusted if our fans bring out the boo birds on Sunday!

There is NO point in dwelling on everything as it serves NO purpose, these guys need to get it done.

I know I have said stuff I regret about he Vikes, i'll stop now, go Vikes!

That makes several of us now. When I saw the title of this thread, I expected to see that 6-Kings started it.

hahah very clever Singer I will give you that. I think the men thread is just going to start repeating itself, that is unless someone posts in the women thread then I have to find something new to put in there.

ya its a good idea everyone in the local area should call in and let the vikings know we still go thier backs and go out and beat the fudge pack this weekend!

In light of this past week being what it was, I haven't had time to work my magic in that thread for a while. But I will.

If someone enlightens me on how I can attach a video to a post for said purpose, I'd appreciate it!

oh ya also today I watched a segment on NFL Films and it was about the steelers when they went through like 26 loosing seasons. Thier fans began the Franco Army! and They had captins and sargents and cpls and so on and so forth. I thought that was a pretty cool idea.

From 1931 (or darn close) until 1970 they did squat! Nada! Zilch!

Well we should definitly cheer for them when the come out of the tunnel instead of booing anyone becuz of the boat or getting off to a crappy start, and dont Boo if they make a mistake in the 1st half or dont boo period thats a good way to show we have there backs, and maybe stop trashing there parking spots.
All we can do is cheer them on.

I never realized they were so bad for so long! What is the longest stretch the vikings have ever gone without making the playoffs? Was it 10 years?

Yup. Up until the 70's the Steelers were a joke!

Boy, they sure changed that with that team. The rings, Hof"s, etc.
Heck, look at one of their drafts. A bunch of HoF's out of 1 draft!

Which draft was that (with all the HOF's)?

some good ideas, we shall all unite, we can overcome all of this! Its time to kick the packers ass! Create some type of anti packer shirt? small green bay logo, overrided with the vikings logo, saying, no one can bring a true fan down!

Last Year when I watched the Vikings/Greenbay game at ESPN in DC, there were a couple green bay fans next to me and one had a t-shirt that said this

Tickets to theHotdogs for the wife and kids$15
Teaching your children to flick off the vikings: priceless

and it had a picture of a little kid in a green bay jersey flicking off some vikings fans.

I am a little woman but I gotta say I almost kicked that redneck green bay fans private parts. game:$75

There are a lot of threads here talking about how bad the Vikes are, how bad the coaching is, and how the fans are being unsupportive. I feel the need to throw in 2 cents.

No matter what, the Vikes will always be my team. I think those of us who truly bleed purple and have suffered through some horrible years feel the same way. Its unfortunate though that with all the hope coming into the season there is now gloom and dispair based not only on poor performance on the field, but also with the player's off field antics. The Vikings had an opportunity to prove that Mossless Vikings can still not only function, but be competitive week after week. Well, so far they haven't done it and now some of the players want to compound their miserable playing performance with off field misbehavior.

So, much like the majority of the games played this season, the Vikes have a big whole to dig out of. Public opinion down on them, media down on them, coach controversy, and now maybe some fan disillusionment. Can they save their season? .. our season? I'm forever optimistic.

So Vikes, stay off the boats, out of the bars (and gas station parking lots). Focus on football, work a little overtime in the gym, the classroom, and especially on the field. Make us proud to wear are jerseys and logowear. Prove to your fan base that you are truly worthy to be called Vikings and that you deserve our support. I don't want to be bleeding purple for nothing.

I agree. No matter how much I might complain its only cause I'm a fan that will watch every single game the Vikings play (hell I even watched them beat the Packers in the playoffs when I was in France last year). I support the team as much as possible and only hope that we can pull out of our funk and be as dominant as we should be.

Vikes will always be my team, regardless of how many bad coaches & qb's we have.

my friend is a chargers fan. from first overall draft pick to winning his division. not a bad deal id say. sure we are taking heat from other fans right now, but just wait. we beat the packers this week and we gain a little bit of respect back to the team. all we need to do is rattle off 4-5wins in a row and we are .500 and who says we cant do it? sure those dark clouds are over our head right now but clouds blow away. ive said this in a number of threads: our division sucks, we wont need that many wins to make the playoffs.
