    Blame anyone but yourself - the true calling card of a loser.

    No doubt about it. He did it to us for years. He did it to the Jets. Now he's doing it to the Vikings. For us, it's great what he's doing to the Vikings. His biggest crime to the Vikings is all the wasted time that could have been used to develop Jackson, or maybe Rosenfels, or some other young QB. I would imagine that a time will come, in Minnesota, where Brett Favre and Herschel Walker will be regularly mentioned in the same sentence.

    It just boggles my mind that some people can somehow convince themselves that the Pack made the wrong move in accepting Favre's own decision to retire and then moved on with Rodgers.

    Fair enough. Am happy that he is not my team's problem any more.

    The Packers could also easily have a better record. The games have all been close, including the two OT losses that could have gone either way. That just how the cookie crumbles some times.

    You don't really complain as much about the officiating when you win! Losing team does, I can tell you honestly I complained up a storm these last few weeks, but those games bordered on the realm of ridiculous. Some teams have every right to complain, because those penalties cost us the game. Bad penalties did NOT cost the Vikings that game. Try Favre throwing multiple INT's several of which resulted in points for the Packers. The Vikings would very likely of won that game had it not been for that. The Vikings lost if for themselves. If you really want to blame someone, look no further than Farve. I'm all for blaming the officials but don't blame them for something that they didn't do. To be honest, there were bad calls on both sides, calls that should of been penalties but were not. Both have a right to complain about those, but lets get one thing clear, the Vikings didn't lose the game because of it. Now man up Vikings, regroup and come back for more. How many chanced did he have to hit that endzone during the last few minutes of the game. How many times did he fail.

    Waa Waa Waaa, those nassty refsess stole this game from us. Oh wait a minute, I just checked this morning's Washington Post and do you know what it said? Packers 4-3 Vikings 2-4. That's the only "fact" that really matters now isn't it?

    Give me a break dude. The spot on Kuhn was because the whistle was blown and he was wrapped up. Doesn't matter if he was digging or wasn't on the ground. Thw whistle was blown...short of a 1st down. Try again

    And once again I'm not talking about holding calls. Holding happens every play. I'm talking about TD's being taken away when in fact it was a td. That's the play that cost the Vikings the game. I find it funny that the Packer fans who were with me watching the game live knew it was BS....but the fans on here don't seem to think so.

    The Rodgers int in endzone Walker went out of bounds then touched the ball

    Shouldnt been a int right?

    This is the rule


    or does that just apply to an offensive player

    The fact that you read that liberal rag means you don't even deserve a response.

    But hey I got some advice for you....the Washington Post is good for 2 things....starting chimney fires and training puppies. LIB!!!!

    Yeah don't feel so bad Vikeman, it seems to be a league wide issue. The Vikings and Packers can't be the only ones complaining about it. I can tell you in Eagles are up in arms too. Eventually it'll hit its crescendo and the league will be forced to address it. Until then hang on, things are not all that bad for your Vikings!

    Was Frank Walker the 1st person to touch the ball? You are digging real deep now to dispell a Shianco td that should have been credited. Don't worry...I would be defensive about the win myself.

    Walker was the first person to touch the ball and I was wondering about that when it happened. I'm not sure if the rule is applied the same to the defense. I know on offense if you go out of bounds you can't be the first person to touch the ball.

    I RARELY pick on flags tthat are called or not called

    YOUR coach didnt challenge the TD catch

    Point being every game will have a handfull of plays where a ref screws up

    Packers have had their share..

    AZ playoff facemask

    Skins helmet to helmet

    So just move on, wont change a thing

    Oh, Bravo!

    BTW, I absolutely HATE the zebras. HATE them. Each one is more incompetent than the next.

    But, as I said, bad calls to both teams. When you come to the other team forum and start whining about the refs in the loss, you kinda look like a crybaby.

    Raptorman said it best.

    Officiating overall this year in the league has been horrible. Look at the Chicago/Detroit game..Detroit won that game...the Green Bay/Chicago game...18 penalties on one team....not to mention the Dolphins/Steelers game where they took the game from Miami...maybe the officials are planning on their own lockout.

    Another nomination for Post of the Thread.

    Packers won because they were better and that's all there was to it.
    Had not one thing at all to do with the Refs.
    Pull your heads out of the spot where the sun don't shine, wake up and smell the coffee.
    Packers were better than the Vikes.

    shank-hoe was clearly out in the back of the endzone. Favre should have thrown at least 4 picks in that game as well... The pack have been on the wrong side of bad calls for some time now. Dont complain about this one when you actually lost the game for yourselves viking fans!:viksux:

    Crybaby? Eh, thats not the term I would've chosen, but whatever...
    Kind of sad really, how someone can invest so much time in to trying to convince a group of people that they're right...
    Kinda reminds me of a Jehovah's Witness or something...
    :amen::amen: "Are you prepared for Jehovah's return?" :amen::amen:

    Dude, take this **** to your online girlfriend or something, go away...

    LOL @ all the Vikings fans whining, I mean it looks rather pathetic now. It looks really lame saying you were the better team when you guys lost, and saying that you are 3 plays away from being 5-1 means NOTHING, we could say that to to be honest, but really what does that even mean? it means hey we almost won some games we were just a couple of plays away, just a nicer way of saying we lost.

    Just watched the tape. Did anyone notice that, on Rodgers 2nd INT, not only did Walker interfere with Jennings waaaay past five yards, BUT ALSO he clearly stepped out of bounds.

    Then he tipped the pass which led to the INT.

    He cannot be the first to touch the ball.

    Viking fans, you are correct. The refs did a horrible job on this game.
