NFL consults Vikings on how to pump in fake crowd noise for games with no fans.

This brings back memories of the days when the vikings played in the Hump Dome. I'm wondering if the NFL consulted the vikings on how to get opposing teams' fans to buy tickets for the next home team's  at home game to make up for lost revenue and to fill those empty seats, so the game could be televised? Back then, the vikings were the pandemic that kept their so called fans away.

The thing is, the vikings suck...

As we roll towards a new season ( hopefully) , its always instructive to take a look back at the previous season for hints about how the next one will play out
The Mighty Green Bay Packers and the vikingsuck play a very similar schedule, including each other 2x

Note the massive difference between a winning franchise and the vikingsuck

Scroll down and:

Look at their anemic record vs Top 10 teams
Check out their lame record vs Top 16 teams

And then look at the Packers record vs that same Top competition

clearly the vikingsuck

I think one of our " Friends" made a comment after that article! 

 

Minnesota is the envy of the league with all that talent. While Iโ€™d hate to see the best running back in the league (sorry Cowboy fans โ€“ lol) go, they will do fine if he doesnโ€™t play. With the talent they have at qb, wr and with the playmakers they picked up in the draft, who will no doubt make an immediate impact, theyโ€™re set on offense even without him. And the d will still be the best of the best. Getting Cook back would just be the โ€œicing on the cakeโ€.

Sounds like someone squeezed out a load of 'icing' in the comment section.
