The Lions game ending.... wow. I really dislike Golden Tate so lol but man that's a rough way to lose.


Did DET have a TO? If not, I can see the reason for the :10 run off.

On another note, it's a little disturbing there wasnt a goal line camera angle on Cooks TD for the 2nd week in a row. I thought he crossed the plane both times.


No TO, if they did they can elect to take one in lieu of a runoff.

There's no place to post this and I can't wait until later because I'll forget but it's pretty spectacular.

No making a Vikings one because I don't have an hour to watch it or enough paint to huff during.

That Detroit receiver didn't look down to me. Was he touched on the way down?

Getting ready this morning to drive the motorhome back home from Minnesota, but yesterday was a great game at US Bank Stadium! (Gotta admit, I love the SKOL chants).

"Even Sendejo" looked pretty awesome out there (and I had been one of his critics). I know there were a few of us at the game, but I didn't expect to see a game thread of only 5 pages. Still doesn't dampen my spirit. I'll get to enjoy the win for the rest of the week and look forward to see how they'll do against Detroit.

I was there too. It was fun! The SKOL chants are awesome. I love the gjallerhorn (sp?) too.

This happens after we look terrible for a week too. People get deflated and don't feel like keeping up.

I'm still here, lurking as always. I've never posted a ton, even in the game day threads, but I currently only have NFL Game Pass, and the full game isn't released until 8:00 PM. I don't like to go onto the game day thread until after I've watched the game. Stinks that I can't watch the games live...

Yeah the chants are awesome. Crowd was loud, caused some false start penalties and got in their head a bit IMO. I'm flying back down in December to see them play Cincy week 15. I can't wait. I'd move there if I could haha

Section 111 row 24. I usually try and sit in that section every year. Best seats for the price IMO. It was like 30 yard line behind Tampa bench

I know when I tape the game (I have Sunday Ticket) on Sundays when I have conflicts with the game. I'll usually avoid the game threads too (until I've had a chance to watch the game). Sometimes I might only be 30 minutes or so "behind" the game but I will still watch it and avoid the threads.

My comment (in case some construed it that way) wasn't really meant to be a "dig" as much as a general observation. In any case, it was nice that my long road trip was worth it...

Maybe if people like you did more to fix the "political crap" Mon- Sat, then your Sunday would be free from the "drama". It must be really nice not having to worry about inequality in this country and only have to deal with it on Sundays. If you think you are tired of hearing about it, imagine how exhausting dealing with it is. But hey, "#### the families, communities and populations that my favorite player comes from, I'm only concern on if they can win my team some games."

With all due respect, this is the biggest story in the NFL right now -- not the games. If this board is going to put its collective head in the sand and pretend the protests aren't part of the storyline, then it's not the board I thought it was.

The problem I had was Ken merely pointed out a few things going on and he got blasted by someone who, for reasons unknown to anyone but him, took offense to the post. It was like me posting that gas prices are high and someone freaking out that I don't know anything about why there high so I should just be quiet.

To some degree bringing up politics in this context is going to happen and the rules do need to be a bit bent for that. However, I think the way in which that conversation was going is exactly the kind of political discussion we want to avoid. It wasn't just a conversation about the situation, it was personal.

I agree with Cliff. Granted, it is a problem but whatever we discuss on here isnt going to solve the problem going on in the NFL and it's going to turn this board upside down. I think these guys are a##holes for kneeling. I think it's ignorant. I'm as far from a racist as they come but the whole kneeling and holding up the fist crap is what's causing this uproar because every little thing someone says is considered "racist" now and these guys feel like they have to act on it. No other sport is doing this. I can say this crap 100 times on here but it's not going to stop them or solve anything. And it's going to turn into battles on here. I just want to talk football with you guys and enjoy how our Vikings are playing right now. Whats going on in the world right now is somehow eventually going to have to solve itself. 50 guys on a message board arent going to solve it.

There have been enough topics like this (political/football hybrid) that we're considering starting up a new political forum - of course the personal attack rule would still be in effect so the above post would still be called out.

We've got a section for smack talk because we decided an outlet for that is necessary and can be fun so perhaps one for politics is as well and would be a good idea. I think we want to keep the discussion about actual Vikings football separate from the core political debate. This particular thread really isn't the place for it but at the same time it's a pretty political discussion meaning a new thread couldn't really be started either.

This also isn't the first time a discussion that is hybrid football/politics has come up and it would be nice to have a place for that. I have actually been thinking about adding a political section for a while. People here are pretty level-headed and if it causes problems I can turn it back off.

Anyway, we'll see how that goes. The mods are discussing it currently.

Then take it to the Smack Shack, perhaps?
