Vikings Blow It

Post by greenandgold » Mon Jan 02, 2012 4:47 pm

You win a game and lost the Suck For Luck race? Granted if Ponder is your man, you don't need another QB, but you could have traded that draft pick for quite a few more and gotten what you need.

You guys even suck at sucking!

No. Indy would have still been #1, Vikes would have passed StL for #2

Just another bandwagon fan, I'm sure that vehicle has been reduced by about half or more now by folks searching for the next SB winning team on a streak. Didn't get to see the entire dismantling today, will have to catch the glory on NFL Replay. Poor cheesepukes, the refs couldn't manufacture enough calls to help them out this time! :govikes:

I would still take a 15 win year over a 3 win year any time.

You sound like a disgruntled Bears fan there. They pull that old chestnut out every time the Packers win. What possible motive would the refs have for promoting Green Bay?

I want to start off with the fact that I am *not* saying this is what's happening, however, you asked what possible motive the refs have for promoting Green Bay.

That's simple; the refs work for the NFL, the NFL is a business that wants to make as much money as possible, and it takes fans to generate that money. The more fans you have watching a given game the more money it's worth.

Green Bay and Dallas are the NFL's most popular teams. In the post season, having more popular teams playing is desirable from a ratings/profit standpoint.

The refs can't help obviously bad teams win without throwing up red flags, but they can certainly give preference to one team over another in playoff games. Since teams there are generally evenly matched, one team can easily be nudged past another via calls.

Again, I'm not saying that happened in this instance (I didn't really watch the game nor did I see the play in question) ... but sure, the refs could very well have motive.

And the Vikings have got neither of those things in the last 2 seasons, the Packers have both AND a freaking SB. IMO, pretty tough for a Vikings fan to talk smack to a Packer fan, they are so much better than the Vikings its laughable, most how the team is run and coached, results pretty much back that up.

I'll give you that, but I still like a 15 win season.
