I don't condone this behavior from a Vikings QB ... well ... yes I do!

That's hilarious. I never knew about this. Can we bring those uniforms back? Please?

Thanks for the post. Howard Cosell would call him Sir Francis.

I missed that one and have watched almost every game in their entire history. I must have got up for a beer or something when this happened.

Vikings lost to the Patriots 17-14 but funny enough, after this win which Patriots went 6-1, Patriots went into a losing streak and fell to 7-7 and missed the playoffs

I've seen that play before. The defender clearly punches Tark in the back well after he's crossed the goal line and despite the fact that Tark is still running away from him, so Tark (justifiably, IMHO) spikes the ball on the back of his head.

The Vikings of that era kept that "Joe Kapp" fighting spirit even after Kapp was no longer their QB. Just didn't take nothing from nobody.

That guy punching Tark in the back on the neck 4 steps after he had already scored had whatever he got coming to him. Just a shame we ended up losing because Tark was ejected.
