"“We’re trying to make it as seamless as possible, so it’s just like a normal home game for us,’’ Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said.".........oh boy, a normal home game. The Vikes embarrassed themselves at home and now they want to do it in England.

What a bunch of losers they are getting in London. Vikings and Steelers? Oh well, cheerio.

What a joke! It's all about the money, Mr. Wilf, isn't it? I am done being a fan. Good riddance!

Vikes lose this one by 17+, and Ponder will finally get benched.

Steeler's didn't look bad tonight in a losing effort. At least they were well coached and had the opportunity and confidence to win. The Vikings are missing that with Frazier. Trestman was in our back yard all the time, and we missed the opportunity for his coaching ability. Sometimes we do not do the bright things.

Hopefully the Vikings are including a bunch of babysitters on the charter because this team is primed for some mischief in London. An 0-3 start and a week 5,000 miles away from home is really going to test the character of this team and whether Frazier is in control.

The way Pittsburgh looked Sunday night, it's going to be another circus game in England. But, England swings like a pendulum do, Bobbies on bicycles, two by two, Westminster Abbey the tower of Big Ben Rothlisberger, The rosy red cheeks of the little children. Bu-bu-bu...Ba-bu-ba...Ba-ba-ba...Be-be-be..........

Any chance we can just leave the Vikings in London and take home one of their English soccer team instead? They might have a better shot at winning American football than this bunch of underachievers and overmatched coaches.

No offence to Minnesota, or Los Angeles. It might have been better for Ziggy to have sold the team last year, and have them move to L.A. I am pretty sure L.A would do a better job hiring a coach, just have to interview two people to do that. Then Minnesota would not have to deal with Ziggy skipping out of town for a game, and not telling anybody about it, until he got his stadium. The Vikings have done very little since Ziggy became the owner, One failed experiment after another.

If the Brit's think this is what American football is really like, they have another thing coming...
