    *crosses fingers* I hope so. What a joke of a franchise nowadays.

      The GOP? If it fails, its a failure on both sides of the aisle. They all deserve blame.

        Phew, the Bills will likely be staying in Buffalo.

        At least I hope they're not moving to Toronto...

          I thought The Plan was for the Rams to boomerang back to LA?

          The London Vikings would be great.

              Publicly financed stadiums - not exactly a great idea.

              But think of all the money it will bring in! Not so much.

                I agree, it sucks to pay for a new stadium for billionaire NFL owners, but whether it is right or wrong, if it isn't built, the 2012 season is the last for the Vikings in MN.

                      Anderson's miss is still one of my all time favorite hater moments. Favre's pick is up there too.

                      Anderson's miss isn't on youtube (that I could find), but the following video is beautiful.






                      As a devout Viking hater, I hope they stay. Definitely the Packers top rival of at least the past 15 years. The NFC North would be diminished (at least from a Packer fan's perspective) if they were gone.

                      They're much easier to take when they suck though.

                        Oh yeah...and the Farve era...where in 2009, the Vikings could well have taken home the hardware had the game against the superbowl champs been on neutral turf.

                        Personally I wouldn't place much money on the thought that the Vikings as a franchise is permanently washed up.

                          Neutral turf? How about if they just weren't trying to intentionally hit the QB late... and actively trying to injure him? That franchise should have been destroyed along with the rest of the city during Katrina. Hopefully they get Katrina'd again.

                            Best quote I've seen so far.

                            "I went over the facts in my head, and admired how much uglier the situation had just become. Over the years I've learned that ignorance is more than just bliss. It's freaking orgasmic ecstasy".- Harry Dresden, Blood Rites

                              If you want to have fun, listen to him when he is interviewed about all of this...he talks out of both sides of his mouth so much it is amazing he doesnt choke.

                              The legislature has been calling the Vikes/NFLs bluff on this for 10 years. Every year it is "wait until next year" which of course means the cost will just go up. Well now the lease is up and it is the final hour I wonder what they are going to do.

                              Of course I'm a fan of the Vikings. A sick and demented Masochist of a fan, but a fan none the less.
