As the VP of the Vikings said, "I think we have a very compelling entertainment platform". It made me wanna puke. What a bunch of arrogant jerks. Now they are blaming it on the bridge being out. The refuse to accept that their team has major issues on the field and their coach couldn't sell a starving man a snickers bar. Blame everyone but themselves. Ugg. It sure is hard to be a Viking fan these days. Oh, and $45 for a nosebleed seat?

Yea thats why they havent sold out any of their home games, because the bridge fell, I also heard its becuse the economy is weak. Well so is their team. LOL. I hope the game isnt blacked out though, I do want to watch it.

Supposedly according to the article I read as soon as the bridge collapsed tickets sales hit the toilet. Combine that with 35w being closed going south out of the city it is going to be a traffic nightmare getting to and from the game. Its not the only problem the team faces when trying to sell tickets but believe it or not I bet it does play a part.

I know I thought about checking out the game in person but I don't want to deal with the mess down there this weekend.

I would bet money that if the vikings went 14-2 last year , the games would have been sold out before the bridge fell smirk.gif

Someone will buy out the remaining tix, and I will be able to watch it at home, Im pretty sure of it.

Minnesota is such a bandwagon state that if the vikes win their first 2 games they will sell out the rest of them pretty quick I bet.

The only thing I don't understand is that the team looked alot worse the last few years and they still sold tickets. Whats the difference between this year and the last few seaons?

they looked worse in past years??? Man, I dont belong to that camp. I think they look horrible this year. In fact, this is the worst looking team they have had since I became a fan in the early 80s. Even in the Les Steckel year they looked good early.

The coach and the upper levels of management are all about excuses, excuses, excuses. A "compelling entertainment platform". what a (Contact Us Please).

Alot of people loved Brad Johnson when he took over for Culpepper so I guess some people were drinking the Kool-Aid. I'd much rather see this years team with a young phyiscally gifted QB and a new future stud RB then last years team that was led by a 40 year old guy who couldn't throw the ball 15 yards. Its just a matter of perspective, this team is more unknown with some potential, last years team had zero chance at doing anything.

Here is the record from the last several years. If we could sell out games after that terrible 5-11 season where everyone was fighting and Green was fired then why can't we sell out a game after a 6-10 season when we have atleast one new exciting young player? You can't tell me this years team is as bad as the first few Mike Tice teams.

2006 NFL Minnesota Vikings 6-10-0

2005 NFL Minnesota Vikings 9-7-0

2004 NFL Minnesota Vikings 8-8-0

2003 NFL Minnesota Vikings 9-7-0

2002 NFL Minnesota Vikings 6-10-0

2001 NFL Minnesota Vikings 5-11-0

I agree with you, they do have a future, some up and coming players, may not be this year, but will have potential in years to come. I think this years team is better then last couple of years also, I think they will finish 9-7. Atleast I am on the bandwagon to start the year! I may fall off later in the year, but I need to start it on the wagon.

I heard they are going for as little as $3 on a scalping site, not "ticketking", but the other one (I can't remember the name). But remember the scalping tickets and the ebay tickets won't lessen the Blackout number, cuz those tickets have already been purchased and are being resold.

The product that was put on the field was a poor one in comparison to past years. In the past when the team won 6 games, they were still fun too watch. Culpepper and Moss and the way the gameplan was wide open made for great entertainment. Its as simple as that.

I think 5-11. They don't have a proven or even slightly proven QB, and nothing at wide reciever. Teams will key on the running attack(the offenses only strength) and shut it down. Jackson can run all he wants. But he still doesn't have anybody to catch the ball. Williamson? Rice? Please...

I am compairing it to what they had on the field the last couple years. We had no recievers, johnson has been washed up for 5 years now. There wasnt any future in the team a few years ago. Atleast now they have something to build on. They have a pretty good defense, offensive line, good running backs, a young QB with potential, unlike johnson. I see we are in about the same shape or better with WR position than last year, better at our running game. We may have went down hill with our linebacker position. I think they will be better then last year. LETS GO VIKES !!!!!

Ding, ding, ding! James Walleye is right on.

Defenses may win championships, but potent offenses sell season tickets. "The Freak" sold a lot of tickets and got those bandwagon and those not-so-true fans interested in Vikings games again.

Well, as I said a long time ago when I last watched them choke in a Super Bowl, I'll buy a ticket and take interest in the team once they win the big one. I guess I won't be buying any tickets anytime soon grin.gif I just hope they win before I die.

        The two pairs shown are the classic adidas originals yeezy boost 350 shoes sale and the adidas Superstar 80s. Both will come with a White upper along with nubuck material with a snakeskin texture overlay. The Superstar will use leather across the heel tab and Three Stripes down the side which is dipped in Black. The Stan Smith will have perforated Three Stripes branding along with Green on the heel and tongue. Look closer at this adidas nmd r1 uk womens they feature a White Primeknit across the uppers while Glitch Camouflage is used on the base. In addition you will notice that there is multiple shades of Grey on the Three Stripes branding along with Japanese writing. Other details include more Grey on the heel and EVA pod overlays while White covers the Boost midsole and outsole. adidas yeezy 350 v2 uk sale While we have seen sneakers from all the brands in the NBA 2K series along with customizing your own pair, this will be the first time the Yeezy Boost will be available in the game. As of now, it isn’t known which pair will be available, but more than likely it will be either the 350 or 750 Boost. The adidas stan smith primeknit sale has been one of adidas Originals biggest sellers through the years and in our opinion, only ranks second from the retro line. Over the past months, we have seen the model evolve while using different material mashups but now we have something completely new. Here we introduce to you the?adidas Stan Smith ’24K Gold’.

        adidas originals campus 80s uk and size will debut two pairs of the adidas Superstar 80s while using a premium theme. The duo will feature tumbled leather along with tonal nubuck across the Three Stripes and heel. In addition, the trefoil logo seen on the leather tongue is laser engraved. One pair features White and Light Grey while the second comes in Black and White. The two are finished off with the traditional shell toe and White through the midsole. adidas samba adv uk sale My friend ended his story of Pablo with an event that took place at his high school and I think it really defines talent. Apparently Pablo had maneuvered around the defense brilliantly and was coming straight on to the goalie, and instead of trying to shoot the ball around the goalie - which would have been an easy shot - he just launched a rocket straight at him. The ball went off of the goalie's leg and into the net. That is how Red Pablo with his red Adidas sambas is remembered most. adidas zx flux primeknit black white So far two different colors have been introduced for the weather change, which comes in ‘Collegiate Navy’ and ‘Running White’. Both pairs are constructed with a mesh upper which allows for additional air flow while the midfoot strap is elastic to help the lockdown without the use of laces. The final touch is the addition to suede across the heel. Looking closer at this adidas nmd xr1 primeknit uk they feature a Utility Grey and Shock Pink color combination. Across the uppers is the use of Grey Primeknit while camouflage detailing runs throughout. White is used on the Boost midsole while the EVA pod overlays are done in Shock Pink and Grey. Completing the look is Black on the outsole.At the time of writing, a release date for the adidas NMD R1 Primeknit Utility Grey Camo isn’t available however they are expected to launch during Summer 2017. Once released, retail price will be $170. Once we have more information, we will make sure to update you. Below you can check out additional images which will give you a better look. This adidas nmd primeknit black white comes dressed in a Legion Ink, Trace Blue and Gum Light Brown color combination. Blue covers the stretch mesh uppers while also applied to the Three Stripes branding, eyelets and back heel. Following we have White which is used for the Boost midsole. Completing the look is Gum that is applied to one of the EVA pod overlays and across the outsole.

        adidas originals extaball up trainers   is getting ready to launch a brand new model in 2016, but before they do that they will unveil the shoes on December 9th, 2015 which is Wednesday. Known as the ‘NMD’, this new pair will combine elements of some of their classic models like the 1984 Micro Pacer, 1986 Boston Super and the 1985 Rising Star. adidas gazelle og sale uk We are currently in the midst of a Gazelle renaissance. While more technical models in theadidas?arsenal might be hogging the limelight at present – namely the?Ultra Boost?and?NMD?– the time-tested Gazelle is holding its own and doing what the classic Three Stripe low-top does best, delivering lush materials and clean colourways. Keeping to this MO, the?Gazelle ‘Ostrich Pack’ delivers two tonal make-ups made of premium leather and nubuck. So why is this called the ‘Ostrich’ pack I’m sure you’re wondering? If you take a sneaky look at the medial-side branding, you’ll notice that it is made of exotic ostrich leather, with the bumpy hide adding a subtle textural pop. Following on from the mens adidas forum hi og casual shoes Wars Rebel Squadron Suprerstars we saw recently come this AT-AT walker inspired Forum Lo. Kind of like a mini version of the?AT-AT Pilot El Dorado?we saw last year, these feature a polar Hoth camo on the uppers and a ‘Hoth Blizzard Force’ AT-AT on the heel that harks back to the?Bill McMullen?AD-AT Shelltoe of a few years back. Available from?Sole Movement, thanks to?Nice Kicks?for the news. adidas adi ease premiere skate shoes This release of the Three Stripes’ UltraBOOST 3.0 sees the sneaker dressed down in a neutral ‘Trace Khaki’ colourway. The?Primeknit?upper wears the tan colour, with the typical mottled pattern flecked throughout the knitted build. The lacing system and heel counter feature a tonal variation of the same colour, giving the UltraBOOST a clean finish. Other than an understated aesthetic, these kicks are equipped with the full-length?BOOST?technology sole for a cushioned ride. adidas eqt running support 93 sale It looks like 2017 is shaping up to be the year of the EQT over at adidas. The recent?‘Turbo Red’ set?gave us plenty to look forward to and now, for those who aren’t inclined towards the many black options presented so far, they’re slipping?in a ‘Cargo Green’?EQT Support ADV?to bulk out the surplus. The shoe still features a few spots of ‘Turbo Red’, which sit comfortably alongside the olive green upper, while the black supports and white midsole tie the whole shoe together with precision.

      No idea the brand, it's an 8 inch, it's in good shape needs a sharpening I would imagine.  Haven't used it for a couple years

      Hey guys heading up to the canadian side in a few weeks just wondering when fishing over rocks what works better 1/4 or 3/8 for jigs to stay out of the rocks?
    • ANYFISH2
      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck
    • srj
      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.
    • curt quesnell
      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind
