I am so sick of our media here in Minnesota these days. What I mean by this is two things.
First, I read the local sports section in our newspapers every morning and everyday I see stories related to the Packers. Whether it is stories talking about Randall Cobb's, Bryan Bulaga's and Jordy Nelson's injury updates or Dujuan Harris being slotted as the number one Running back. Who cares? I know it's a business and I am sure it drives traffic to these struggling newspapers, but the business also is you are a local aka Minnesota newspaper company. So, write about Minnesota sports. Do you think the Milwaukee Journal writes stories about our Vikings players? How about the Chicago Tribune, do they have stories about Packer players? No! So why do we? All these so called sports writers here in Minnesota who write these dumb stories about other teams and other teams players need to go work for those other teams newspapers. Does anyone else get as bothered as I do? We even have Packer radio shows like on K-Fan called Packer Preview on Sunday mornings! Why? Do you think I want to listen to that? If Packer fans live here then they should tune into Packers talk out of Green Bay. What is wrong with this state? Or maybe I should say why do Vikings fans allow this?
The second thing that drives me nuts is why is every so called Vikings sports writer and so called Vikings fan calling for Christian Ponders head? Do people not want him to be successful? It's his third NFL season and yes this is a big year for Ponder to prove he is an NFL starting Quarterback. But lay off him people! How would you feel going to work everyday and hearing people/media say you suck and can't make it with your company? Does that motivate you? Maybe for some of you it does, but some people aren't formed that way either. If you are a "true" Vikings fan stand behind your players! Cheer for them when they make plays and pick them up and cheer when they do make mistakes! No one is perfect, not even the Brady's, Manning's, Rodgers of the world. Media/so called fans back off the guy! Plus Matt Cassell is a backup for a reason, I don't see any of the other 31 teams in the NFL taking a chance with him as their starter.
Long story short! Owwwwwwww! Skol Vikings!!!!
p.s. can you tell I had 3 cups of coffee this morning?
