    Forty years of Vikings devotion and fandom - shattered. Devastated. My purple blood has been let, painfully draining into an ever-expanding puddle reminiscent of a murder scene.

    I'm willing to entertain reasons I should cheer for other NFL teams. Only ones I refuse to consider are Dallas or Philadelphia.

    Or I may just say the heck with it - the Gophers have a nice, new outdoor stadium.

    I feel for ya, Rosie. I've spent years watching the Bears disappoint me, but they've never done something like signing Vick or signing an aging, self-absorbed former hated rival. If they had, I'd be doing the same thing as you.

    Right there with you, Rosie.

    I am a free-agent NFL fan, too. Will not root for The Diva. Will, however, root for the Vikings to be squashed at every opportunity.

    This is a no-brainer, Rosie. Your team turned on you, time to turn on your team.


    He wants you.

    "That's my team, man."

    It's Packer time, Rosie.

    Come over to the dark side.

    Perfect bandwagon to jump on, Rosie. You get to root for a consistent winner and one of the few remaining family businesses in major pro sports.

    And they have only had two players arrested in the past two seasons! That's a heck of a positive record these days. :)
