Re: Changing Norseman Logo

Cliff really nails it. When it comes to Washington and the name of the team it comes down to race and a derogatory term that was used in the persecution of said race. A whole different ballpark than the somewhat historically inaccurate depiction of a Viking. Yes, Vikings did have horns and other orn...

Re: Week 1 vs. SF will be there from Seattle

'Scuse my ignorance, but isn't the Light Rail the term for the trains travelling in downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul(I'm guessing you're talking about the Northstar Line)? Either way, you can take that transportation(Light Rail aka LRT) straight from Target Field to US Bank, takes about 5 minutes. ...

Re: Message Board Update and Changes

Hmmm ... I'm showing the 49ers as the Preseason week 1 game at the top. Unfortunately I don't have the ability to edit the calendar in that way. If there is a start and end date (rather than a game that has only one date) It will be shown the way Minicamp and Training camp are. Yes that is what is ...

Re: Message Board Update and Changes

Which ones are wrong? I'm going by this; http://www.vikings.com/news/article-1/2018-Minnesota-Vikings-Schedule-Released/7fcc59c3-c37c-411a-8f24-adfd90bd3866 Dates are correct but the game "description" is wrong. The 49ers game is Week 1, for example. I really like the calender though. But perhaps m...

Re: Viking Tweets

Yeah, as I was looking at the players tweets there's not really much there. I turned off the few that I had. Very little interesting content. I'm interested in beat writers - suggest some and I'll add them. I can make individual forums but my original plan was to show which was which via the subjec...

Re: Viking Tweets

Also - any suggestions on twitter accounts to add? I was just going to add every player's and coach's twitter account but I'm not really sure what people want to see. If there are a lot of players I expect just random stuff (like Diggs' posts about the NBA final). Though we can weed those tweets ou...

This was tweeted by Arif Hasan, not sure what the source is, but if true.... :shock:

Re: Updating the Traveling/Game Attending Advice

Ah yes, thanks Ohjay! They have a crazy beer selection and it's part of our annual pilgrimage. I think I've been to 8th St Grill, is that the one with the umbrella seats outside? Definitely a Packers bar if so. Hell's Kitchen seems popular for breakfast but it's always so crowded we just pass. Yep ...

Re: Updating the Traveling/Game Attending Advice

Happy Gnome Bar (St. Paul, thanks to the VMB user who recommended this place!) I think that's me. You're welcome! :) And like S197 said, I'm not an expert either or lives in Minneapolis but I do travel there a lot, for what it's worth. Lodging Basically every downtown hotel is good but a couple of ...

Re: Biggest Need On The Team?

This is really interesting. But I feel like you're missing a vital piece in this analysis... years as a HC. Of those 21 Super Bowl coaches who won within the first 4 seasons with a new team were actually new head coaches? That's a good question. 14 of the 21 coaches were first time NFL head coaches...

Re: Biggest Need On The Team?

I think that is a fair assessment. My question is - Do you think they (the coaching staff) have a chance to attain that level of performance? This is not a "Fire Zimmer!" comment. Zimmer had a great year this year, and even in the games that we lost (sans the NFC Championship game, of course) I nev...

Re: 2017 NFL Season General NFL Thread

The tweet must have been from the end of the divisional game on Saturday(Twitter automatically adjusts timezones, so it was probably sent on the 13th ET). Can't remember if Hoyer played late in the 4th quarter, but it's not unlikely. Yeah, the no practice is a bad sign. But the practice on Friday wi...

He hasn't practiced for a couple of days due to that hand injury he sustained in practice. But I haven't heard anything about him not being able to start.
