I don't know about anyone else, but I'm awfully tired of seeing the front page of Star/Trib sports with these "Harvin" articles. Hey Star/Trib guy's, a lot of other stuff to write about. He's gone and before the Vikes gave him a chance to go all "RANDY MOSS" on us we get zip. MMMMMMMMOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVE ON!!!!

Bottom line...Percy didn't want to be here, and we received decent compensation (considering Spielman has had a couple of good drafts the last two years).

Sorry to see Percy Harvin go, but, big picture-wise, this trade needed doing. You can't have a player on your roster who, if he isn't out with an "ankle" injury is fighting with the head coach during games. Good luck to Harvin in Seattle, but there is no room on the Vikings for a player who makes a habit of screaming "F### y##" to the Head coach, especially in front of the rest of the team.

Percy Harvin's biggest fan is Percy Harvin. He wants to be told how great he is, every minute of every day. Just like Kevin Love. Both signed contracts, and then openly complained about them. Kevin Love only "loves" himself. Maybe the Wolves should take a clue from the Vikings, and rid themselves of their biggest malcontent. Trade Love now, invest in Pek and rid yourselves of a slime bucket.

the Vikings record was 5-4 with Harvin. After he was "injured" they went 5-2 including wins against Chicago, Green Bay and Housto. Harvins absence allowed other players to get involved and the absence of his attitude had a positive influence on the performance of the team. So Long Percy

I'm sorry to see him go, but Ponder is going to be just fine. A buddy of mine from Texas said it best when he was up here watching a game. "Ponder needs to throw it where these guys can catch it, but I don't know where that is, because they drop it every time he hits them in the hands."

Have to agree with Jack...the migraines were probably caused by playing with the Vikes...

Good move! If you are not sure that Percy wants to play as a Viking, then ship him out! Goodbye Drama and hello great management.

Now the Vikins can re-re-sign Randy Moss! Wouldn't that be a typical Viking move? The Steelers Wallace is gone to Miami. But we still got Jerome Simpson and who are the rest of our guys? Have fun Ponder, you will have absolutely no one to over throw!

Get used to Vikings scoring less than 10 pts per game now. Hope our defense can hold opposition to 7 pts / game! Yes Harvin was a head case but talent like that is really rare. Good bye Percy, Good luck to you. You can laugh at Frazier's Vikings next January when you are flying through the playoffs and the Vikes are golfing in Florida.
