Re: Message Board Update and Changes

This. VMB's homepage looks pretty darn neat on mobile now. Not bad, Cliff. Not bad! :smilevike: Also, Tapatalk sucks and really takes away a lot of what makes message boards like these neat.

Outstanding job on the redesign, Cliff.
Thanks a lot! Web design isn't my specialty but I'm fairly proud of how it turned out.

Re: Updating the Traveling/Game Attending Advice

Thanks a lot! I've updated the main thread with your tips.

Bringing an "out of towners" perspective is a good thing, I think. A lot of people looking at these tips will be just that.

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

When we were in the Cousins sweepstakes there were a number of articles pointing out the predicament Spielman was in. Not only did we set the precedent for QB pricing moving forward, we also dropped the guy that got us to the NFCC, a former #1 picked loved by our head coach, and a guy we traded two...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

Those are not remotely similar. We gave Cousins $84M. Guaranteed. All of it. If he flops, its going to be hard to justify keeping a GM who made that massive of a mistake. I don't think you get a mulligan if you miss on an "all in" move like this. Maybe. If Cousins flops then good luck finding the G...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

This combination of coaching staff/front office have done a lot well. Producing a good offensive line hasn't been one of those things so I think questioning their moves is pretty valid. I'm much more willing to give them the benefit of the doubt when picking a CB ... There is an argument to be made ...

Updating the Traveling/Game Attending Advice

The post on the message board that outlines some tips and places to go is *very* out of date. Originally made in 2004 and mostly still referencing the metrodome. I've started picking out some tidbits from that forum but I was hoping as a community we could put together a new master document. I've go...

The green is just cause that's what we've always had but good catch, I'll have to change that.

Re: New Kickoff Rules

The current trend in the league prior to this rule change was fewer and fewer big returns. Patterson's return ability was rather unique within this environment and that is a credit to his immense physical talent. We definitely lacked that bit of explosiveness in our special teams last year with his...

Re: New Kickoff Rules

Sounds like 1) there will be bigger returns; and 2) onside kicks will be easier. It'll be interesting to see how these changes play out during the preseason and then during the regular season. My bet is that kickoffs are eliminated within the next 5 years. I think so too. When I read this part; and...

New Kickoff Rules

Link Here. While the proposed changes might not appear dramatic to the naked eye, they are to the people involved with the game. Among the differences: There will be no running start or pre-kick motion by cover teams and no wedge blocks by return squads. Also, there will be a 15-yard, non-contact z...

When your team is built around defense kicker is an even more important position than normal, in my opinion. A wise investment.

It's not something that I can turn off for each person but I can turn it off overall. It's something that I was considering but I thought it was a little tough to read on the background when it wasn't more bold.

Thoughts now that it's not bold?

Strikes me as a smokescreen. You don't want to say, "this guy isn't going to play" to the media and fan base, and you don't want to say, "he's going to replace Trae Waynes".
