With the Dakota Dozier signing the Vikings have solved the debate here whether they’ll address the interior of the offensive line in free agency, whether that was a wise move remains to be seen. I’m on service until Sunday however I did see a suggestion to do a mock draft and let everyone be the GM of a team; I’ll be throwing that together sometime next week while I’m off, look for an announcement here, but we’ll do the draft in the fanposts...consistent with me there will be rules though. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links open thread full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s Thursday, one more day until it’s weekend eve and time to plan the beer and meat menu for the weekend.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Leave the gender hatred at the door
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, 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 forget to wash your hands, tip your waiter from a safe distance, and Welcome Aboard!
Okay armchair GM’s it’s time. I’m proposing we do a mock draft of the 1st round (maybe 2nd) in the Fanposts, I’ll be the commish, you get to be the GM. Look for a post next week in the Fanpost section.

Sounds fun, I’ll sign up for a team
Boring, I’m going to sit around and complain.
