Go AP, thanks for telling it!

Oh no, they threw snowballs like kids. Whining really shows your class AP. The refs wouldn't have mattered had the defense did their job the last 2 minutes of the game. What a joke of a team.

Ima let you finish, Adrian, but I just want to say, the Philadelphia Eagles' fans are the worst in the league of all-time!

@dmulville72 for once, I will agree with AP. The NFL refs are starting to be more of a problem then keeping the game fair. The miss calls would have helped the Vikes. However, it's time for AP to really consider if he wants to be a Viking for next year. He may never get a ring with the Vikes.

Losers complain about officials.

The officiating in this game was only one of the rediculous calls throughout the league yesterday. Some of these bozos couldn't get it right if it was 2 inches from their noses. What is Godell doing about it? Nothing as long as the millions ($$$'s) keep rolling in. What a joke.

Just glad it wasn't a playoff game. Vikes defense has issues but it wasn't helped by the home town pass interference call on Greenway on that last Ravens drive. Just one call to point out. The officials were almost as bad as the ones in New Orleans and I can print that even though I wasn't nearly as much into this game as that game against the Saints.

Vikings have always gotten the pickle from the Refs...Ask Bud Grant... There should be FULL TIME FOOTBALL OFFICIALS...Not 75 year old Accountants and Lawyers trying to Referee these games...With such terrible Refs is there any wonder everyone gets frisked before entering the stadium.....

Last year, while being stationed out in Maryland, me and one of my friends who was a Packer fan went to a Ravens/Bengals game in Baltimore. I wore my Vikings jersey, and my friend wore his Packers jersey, as we were not fans of either team playing, while obviously being fans of the game of football. The entire night was a nightmare. I got beer thrown at me, I was told to "go die" and "I hope Peterson breaks his knee again" while my friend was told, "Packers suck" and "Rodgers is a #$!@ing #$%&!". That same year, I went to the Vikings/Redskins game in DC and I spent the entire game laughing and messing around with all the Redskins fans sitting around me. It was a very pleasurable experience. Point is, AP is correct in this assessment. Ravens fans are some of the worst fans in football, and the fact that they were able to sneak by the Vikes thanks to the hometown refs WHILE they were missing their star player is salt in the wounds.

I expect AP will be fined for his comments, which I feel were accurate; but the NFL doesn't like the inmates - including coaches - questioning the institution. It will be interesting to see what happens. What an exciting and roller finish to that game though in the last couple of minutes. It's just too bad it fell, or was helped, into the Raven's hands.
