Merry Tuesday, everyone!
Hey, I mentioned a poll in the open thread last week, then I forgot to post the poll, so I’ll post it today. I think it was Tuesday of last week when I mentioned posting it anyway, and it’s Tuesday now, so I think I’m innocent of the charges of forgetting to post the poll. I can wiggle out on some sort of technicality or something.
With all the talk of Spielman’s extension, what is your opinion on what the Vikings should do?
This poll is closed
Extend him now, the Vikings are lucky to have a GM of his caliber
I won’t be mad if they extend him, but I would consider other candidates first
Whatever, I don’t care either way
They should look for someone to replace him, let him keep his job for this year....maybe
Replace him before the season. Actually, replace him today.
We haven’t fired everyone yet? Why haven’t gone fishin’ and just_rob been replaced yet?
Around the DN since our last open thread:
In a procedural move, the Vikings waived Cameron Smith.
Other Vikings/NFL news, and random oddities and annoyances:
NFL.com considers Antonio Brown’s employ-ability, and which team may take a chance on him.
From FoxSports, Captain Munnerlyn was arrested at Miami International Airport on a fugitive warrant for writing bad checks. Munnerlyn’s attorney stated that it is a misunderstanding. Many of you will remember Munnerlyn, as he played the 2014 - 2016 seasons for Minnesota.
We come to today’s media selection:
This here is my favorite song by the legendary group Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Ballad of Curtis Lowe. Enjoy!
Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Take the gender hatred elsewhere, it won’t be tolerated
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-If discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don’t wash your hands, touch each other’s faces often, and try the finger food
