I'm so deeply unashamed by the satisfaction I felt/feel about that game and could give a Ragnar hot crap about your opinion of that. You're not a Vikings fan. You haven't lived through what we have. Think about how you felt after that game and multiply that by about 100 and you might start understanding our/my perspective. Am I happy my team was sitting out during that? Absolutely not. What would've been even sweeter would be the one delivering that glorious dagger. It wasn't, but at least it was delivered. How many people were really all that sad when Joffrey Baratheon was poisoned? Yes, I'm saying the Packers are the Joffrey Baratheon of the NFL.

You will never understand my perspective, and I don't expect you to. So feel free to judge all you want and look down on those of us that do, but you might not be able to see us very well atop your high horse made of Lombardi trophies. Just a friendly warning: winter is coming.
Thats the thing though, reminiscing about another teams losses is weak, I wasn't jumping up and down when Wilson threw that pick at the goalline in the SB, and for good reason.

'Your perspective' my 'highhorse'.. :lol: is this 'lost cause' rhetoric really nessecary? It just doesn't make much sense to feel so jovial as fan over a game your team didn't even participate in, what are you really even saying? 'Oh haha, you didn't win the SB that year'? Well neither did you, I might as well start 'reminiscing' about every loss that made you miss the playoffs last year, it really wouldnt be much different..

You don't understand and who cares? Your team lost. It was beautiful to watch a rival who has had an embarrassment of riches at the hardest position to fill in football for over two decades stump a fail in a heartbreaking fashion.

Its a real thing and honestly its a very "high horse" response from you to say "you shouldn't feel that" fine, great, I don't think Packers should feel a sense of pride over hitting on a backup trade in the 90s and a draft pick in the mid 2000s. You don't feel it, congrats. Who cares? We do and so many other people do that the Germans have a word for it.

Wait.. you dont feel that.. Packers fans should feel pride in their teams accomplishments? :lol: Because that is uh.. what you just said.. thats quite a difference from the 2014 NFCCG, which had nothing to do with the Vikings.

But was it really a fail though? I mean, they got to the NFC Championship Game and lost, by that logic the Vikings going 7-9 last year should be a season to remember for a Packers fan like me.

Oh, yes, that championship game loss was definitely "a fail". the blew a lead in spectacular fashion.

IrishViking, you beat me to the punch. I was thinking of posting about schadenfreude in this thread too. Well done.

Goodness the two teams I hate the most in the Superbowl NE/GB

I would have to root for the Refs,

Jordysghost, If you expect fair or rational; when it comes to the Packers, from a Vikings fan.
You would have better luck doing a scratch and sniff, on the most unappealing Wal-Mart customer
nether regions and expecting minty freshness. :mrgreen:

Wait, OK, 13. That's how many Packer fans have stated they are hoping the Bears beat the Vikings this week. Want me to count last weeks?

Oof, if that was a fail i'd hate to hear you opinion on the Vikings 7-9 season.

To even be leading in the NFCCG in one of the hardest stadiums to play in, with a hobbled one legged QB is impressive in its own right, if that is a fail, what was the 2014 Vikings season? A super utra mega deluxe fail?

Difference between wanting a certain team to lose, and 'reminiscing' about another teams loss, in another teams stadium, while your team was on the couch eating crackers.

For this year at least, yea you were right. But my real 'dream' is winning another SB, and we have a pretty good chance to put ourselves in position to do just that.

I told you the Niners would win week 1, and you chalked it up to me being a Packers fan, so I suppose we are even for now.
