For those who follow the Minnesota Vikings football team, you will be happy to know they are again on the search for “one in a row”! This is a regular quest for this team and, not by personal choice.
I attempt to watch the Vikings on TV but have rarely been able to watch a complete game for the past four years. there is a reason there is no “air” in the stadium when the Vikings play because “They SUCK”!
Many of the nay-Sayers resort using lines like…”they are in transition” or “they have a new coach” or even “they are building”! These are comments that should be left to football play-by-play announcers to use because they too don’t have a clue. My point is the Vikings and all other teams in the NFL are supposed to be “Professional” football teams, not high school or college teams that regularly suck…just at a different level. Professional should indicate an expected quality that can be exhibited on the field and “off” the field…unlike the behavior of several NFL players of recent times. Wife beating and child abuse are not professional football players qualities to be respected or “retained”.
Yes, pro football is set up to make the owners even bigger millionaires than they already are…and, yes, pro-football hands out player contracts that are too large and long to be of any value except to the player. These huge contracts and the ( as of late ) “licensing” of season tickets should be declared plain and simple “greed” on the part of players and owners. There should be a law against such dealings with the public (fans) but then that would probably take an act of Congress and we all know they have proven they can only act on their own personal behalf.
the Vikings new coach is assumed to be able to coach. Bad assumption. The Vikings players are assumed to be capable .of playing. Bad assumption. Both rely on excuses or ridiculous lines like…”My Bad!” That’s obvious…you don’t have to tell us.
Reality Chick; the Vikings have a coach that can only walk the sidelines and frown or raise his fist, the Vikings have a quarter-back that should still be playing minor ball or sitting on the bench as a back-up until he can demonstrate pro-qualities. the Vikings have a defense that may professional chefs would love to use as a colander (that’s like a strainer for some of the Vikings players that can read. The Vikings have an offense that only has two weapons and most of the time they go unused or “unloaded”.
Here is the next scenario I suggest the Vikings players or coaches should use the next time they are interviewed on national television (they will be interviewed whether they win of loose because announcers have nothing to say when left to their own ways)…
The Vikings Coach should simply say…” we are doing the best we can with what we have and working to improve each week. Please be patient with our efforts”.
The Vikings players should simply say…” I know all the guys are giving their best and each week we show up with a strong effort. Please be patient with our efforts”. Then…the team manager should immediately begin a system wide search for players that will “actually” show up each week.
Not ALL the Vikings players are performing poorly. half or maybe a little more of the starters, “ARE”. It makes one wonder…because it has happened in the past…how many benchwarmers on the team could do better?
At this point in the Minnesota Vikings season the question of “Why doesn’t North Dakota have a professional football team? Answer…”because then Minnesota would want one”…is a valuable pondering.
