Vikings have perfect attendance at 'voluntary' practice. It is June, right? You wouldn't know it by looking at a full field of 87 players working out at Winter Park on Wednesday.

I saw that on StarTribune.com yesterday. It's interesting that Brad Childress can get them all there, but not Mike McCarthy for the Packers.

No boat-tours available, huh? :wink: :lol:

Good for the Queens anyways. I would abolish that voluntary practices and make them all mandatory. It's their job and they are not all that good to be allowed to not attend those activities.
Btw, I think, I'll skip my job tomorrow for a longer weekend. :wink: 8)

Tell me who did not report for mandatory practices and training camp, then I will be concerned/interested, until then nothing matters.

True, but it is really nice in a heated rivalry such as this one, for the team that you support to have won many championships while the other team has been championless. No matter what they say or boast about, we got that on them at least.

Like I've said earlier, the Vikings have to be the best NFL from April to about August every year...amazing :)

I should end this post by saying I wish the Packers would have 100% attendance so you have to tip your hat to the Vikes for that one at least.

True, but those trophies won't win us any games this year.

I know. It's a fact that gets brought up over and over. I'm a steadfest Packers fan and even I get tired of it being used.


But yes, it is wonderful, I do agree :)

What an original post SuperRat. Try to remember that this section of the website is for information concerning other nfl teams. Just because your two biggest offseason acquisitions decide to pull no shows, doesn't mean you need to get your stomach upset about the Vikings.

You want to talk about championships in recent years? Look no further then your Brewers. LoL what a joke of a franchise that team is bud. How have the Packers done against the Vikings in the playoffs in the past 30-40 years?. How about even the regular season? You act like the Pack have some sort of dominating overall record against Minnesota. Try to remember that the Vikings do have a nfl championship by the way (pre-superbowl). 1969 Vikings over the Browns. I know it's long ago and pathetic but it is at least something.

Don't ruin the current best rivalry in football with redundant dribble that gets spouted on this site over and over agin.

I like the Twins actually. I live in Iowa so I like a randomish assortment of pro teams since Iowa is too crappy for their own teams. Packers Red Wings and Twins are who I follow most. The Packers record against the Vikings is minor compared to champion teams. I do agree however that the super bowl thing is brought up too much, but bragging about attendance at a optional mini camp is kind of reaching.

Ummm...the first Super Bowl was 1967 (for the 1966 season) so that's not pre-Super Bowl. That championship, though, only amounts to what is considered an NFC Championship today because it was before the AFL-NFL merger. The Vikes lost the big game that counted. (*choke**choke*) ;)

It's not a big deal to me, but I just wanted to set the facts straight.

There were two leagues, not two confrences. The game that counted was against the Browns. Which the Vikes won outright. Learn the facts. The Vikes should have won that game by the way. They were expected to beat the Chiefs in the AFL NFL game. They didn't choke. They got outplayed in every aspect. Choking is missing a last minute field goal. Choking is going for the game winning drive in a close game and failing. Choking is not getting your *** kicked. The Packers didn't choke in the superbowl against the Broncos...they just got outplayed on that particular day.


Since the completion of the merger in 1970, the Super Bowl has served as the NFL championship game. Unlike the Super Bowl, which is contested at a neutral site, NFL championship games from 1933 to 1969 took place at the home field of one of the competing teams.
