Majestic Realty Co. managing partner John Semcken said the […]

Brad Childress Is An Idiot, Part 2

Look into Chillys eyes... Look deep into Chillys eyes!

Hey, it’s not even us who’s saying it this time, although we can’t say we disagree. We can’t say some people didn’t get to this party a little too late. We can’t say we didn’t say it first. Brad Childress is an idiot. That’s essentially what ESPN NFL analyst Trent Dilfer told the Pioneer Press, […]

Did Cutler Flip Off Chicago Fans?

Eff yall! Wheres Shanny when I need him?

One of the more entertaining stories coming out of the Chicago Bears’ delightful OT victory over the slumping Minnesota Vikings involves Bears quarterback/mouth breather extraordinaire Jay Cutler. Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio asks whether Cutler flipped off Chicago fans after they booed the Bears’ decision to take a knee with nine seconds left in regulation […]

Devin Aromashodu and Bears have muddied up the playoff picture

After the Chicago Bears 36-30 win over the once-thought-to-be-indestructible Minnesota Vikings last night, there are plenty of playoff scenarios that could play out on the final week of the season. We know two things for sure. First, the six teams in the playoffs are the New Orleans Saints, Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles, Arizona Cardinals, Green […]

Darryl Tapp: Might As Well Play For the Vikings

Darryl Tapp

Who is Darryl Tapp? He’s a mediocre defensive end for this week’s Green Bay Packers opponent, the Seattle Seahawks. And, according to Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, he’s also a guy who bites people on the football field. We don’t have confirmation of this yet, but we hear the Minnesota Vikings are trying to work a […]

Fans’ Pro Bowl Selections An Even Bigger Joke Than We Thought

If only the NFL could idiot proof the Pro Bowl voting process. You know, make people prove they’re not complete fucking morons before they’re allowed to vote. Obviously, if there were any such measure in place, it didn’t work this year. We told you which way the voting was going last week, and it turned […]

Favre-a Donna Rears His (Big) Ugly Head

Oh no, not again! Mah hair!!

At least now we know who wears the pants in the Minnesota Vikings organization. And it sure isn’t Brad Childress. In a “heated discussion” rivaling any soap opera or made-for-TV movie, quarterback Brett Favre pulled the diva card Sunday night and refused to come out of Minnesota’s game at the Carolina Panthers after Chilly tried […]

New Vikings Stadium Options Unveiled; Team Notably Absent

The pipe dream in print.

A consulting firm hired by the group that operates the Metrodome unveiled a cheaper plan for a new Vikings’ stadium Thursday. The new pricetag? About $870 million if construction started next year. That’s about $84 million less than the most recent figure of $954 million, primarily because of lower product and labor costs, according to […]

Jets’ Revis Woodson’s Main Competition For Defensive MVP

This cat is good

Around these parts it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that the Green Bay Packers’ Charles Woodson will be the NFL Defensive Player of the Year. We’ve looked at the competition and crunched the numbers. But we may have overlooked one guy – New York Jets’ cornerback Darrelle Revis. Previously, our discussion centered around the Minnesota […]

Don’t Go To the Bathroom in the Metrodome

You could probably sleep in here if you had to

We’ve covered the continuing saga of the Minnesota Vikings and their desire to get out of the Metrodome and into a new stadium extensively, but here’s some evidence of just how bad that stadium really is. The Minnesota Twins, the other resident of the Metrodome, will begin play at a new, non-domed, non-relic-of-yesteryear stadium next […]

Mostly Idiots Voting For the Pro Bowl

Totally Pro Bowl material

I hate to say this, but most fans of professional sports are idiots, which is why I hate the fact that fans have a say in which players play in the respective all-star games. I should put a disclaimer here, because I don’t lump Green Bay Packers’ fans in with most sports fans. Their passion […]

Eli Manning

While there are still eight teams vying for two wild card slots in the AFC, the NFC picture has become pretty clear after Sunday’s games.

Minnesota Vikings Luckiest Team in the League

Brett Favre

You know, I thought I smelled something funny coming from the Twin Cities – and I’m not referring to the stench of inbreeding and ignorance. No, I’m referring to the pungent smell that drifts your way when your arch enemy is more lucky than good. It’s the smell that makes you want to vomit. The […]

Push for new Queens stadium takes another hit

The study analyzed 82 markets in the United States and Canada to determine if they have the […]

Welcome to Favre in December, Vikings’ Fans

CFL what? Top that, chump.

Quarterback Brett Favre gave Green Bay Packers’ fans and Minnesota Vikings’ haters around the world an early Christmas present Sunday night, throwing two picks and playing generally like crap in a 30-17 drubbing by the Arizona Cardinals. According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette’s Tom Pelissero, the latest interceptions give Favre 48 picks and 28 TDs […]

Brett Favre is Fascinating!

Fascinating!

Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Brett Favre is fascinating. One of the 10 most fascinating people of 2009. At least according to Barbara Walters. Favre will appear on Walters’ annual 10 Most Fascinating People show on December 9, which made me wonder… well, first it made me gag, and then it made me wonder… what might she […]

$1.2 Billion Deficit? Vikings’ Stadium Backers Don’t Care

Zygi Wilf

About 50 Minnesota Vikings’ fans and former players continued their push Thursday for a new Vikings’ stadium with a rally outside the state capitol in St. Paul. What the backers lacked in numbers they apparently made up for with enthusiasm. But their latest whines – er, pleas – for state funding couldn’t have come at a […]

Bart Starr on Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers

From one great Green Bay Packers’ quarterback to another. Well, not exactly. Bart Starr was on the Brian Kenny radio program the other day, where he touched on various subjects, including your least favorite ex-Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Brett Favre and our main man, Aaron Rodgers. Interestingly, Starr seemed to infer that Favre’s success this […]
