Tuesday Open Thread: August 11, 2020

Okay, I’ll put that poll up that I forgot to post last week.

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Minnesota Vikings Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

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?

Around the DN since our last open thread:

From Chris, if college football delays or cancels the 2020 season, the NFL may make some schedule changes in order to fill the Saturday network void.

In a procedural move, the Vikings waived Cameron Smith.

Other Vikings/NFL news, and random oddities and annoyances: considers Antonio Brown’s employ-ability, and which team may take a chance on him. ranks the NFL’s ten best-performing O-lines, based on expected rushing yards.

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
