NFL tampering

57 posts in this topic

Rumor has it that the Packers are filing for tampering by the Vikings. Apparently Bevell and Favre have been having inappropriate conversions.... Probably about the next party barge on 'tonka and hooking up with Chmura and Winters after his induction this weekend. HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!

How could the Packers possible know this? Nice futile coverup Thompson. Like we'd give you any draft picks or players you would want. How about Sharper? You can have him, plus the 6th rounder we got for loser Troy Williamson. The entire NFL is laughing. HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!

Good way the pass time during the All-star break.

If this is true of tampering the one doing this should be outsted from the NFL.

I don't think they'd get rid of the entire Vikings organization for this. grin

Maybe it'd be a good excuse to finally move them to L.A.

He was talking to the offensive coordinator. Good luck proving what they were talking about.

If we didn't follow the Glenn Taylor model and they don't actually find a napkin with credible evidence on it we should slide on this one without any damage.... grin

And dont forget the two had a prior relationship before the coach came to Minnesota. How stupid is this coordinator.

And sorry We need not to have him.

I thought T Jack was the man. Why would the Queens who have no weakness need a wash up QB? laugh I guess maybe bevell doesn't feel T Jack is ready to lead the purple to another title, smirk opps I mean a title.

This tampering story is funny, whether it is true or not. Tough to prove, I would think, unless something is recorded or someone admits it.

The Green and Gold can't handle the thought that their God is considering playing for the Purple.

I would take him as quarterback on the Vikes. Why? He is better than what we have now and I would love to see the faces of all the Packers fans when their beloved son makes a run for the border....

4wanderingeyes....your quotes are laughable. Washed up QB??? Brett threw for 4,155YDS..28TD's..15INT's..and had a QB rating of 95.7 last year. That hardly sounds like a washed up QB!!!

What are your thoughts on the Purple this year? Your predictions have gone from 10-6..11-5..12-4..13-3 SB in 3 years..to 2 years..to next year????

Keep those quotes/comments coming!! You keep the Pack fans very entertained!

If he isnt washed up, and is that good, why isnt the Packers excited and jumping up and down that he wants to un-retire?

I think the Packers have a good young team without him, and they know that Favre isnt the one to take them over the edge to win the Super Bowl! The reason Favre had such a good year last year was because he had a lot of good players around him to make him look good.

A washed up or mediocre QB can look good if he has 3 good recievers, a good OF line, and a good running back. Just look at what Jeff George, Brad Johnson , and other QB's did for the Vikings when they had Jake Reed, Randy Moss, Chris Carter, Robert Smith. The Packers and the Vikings would be taking a step backwards by having Favre as their starting QB. Both teams are young and are building for the future. Favre may be a little better then Jackson or Rogers, but to bring Favre into either of these teams would effect the long term goal of both teams to build for the future!

I still predict Vikings to be a 11-13 game winner this year. With the Packers right up there as well.

He's not washed up. The organization is tired of his indecision with retirement. Plus, Arod will probably not re-sign with the Pack if Favre comes back. It's time for Favre to move on. If the Pack release Favre (which they won't), the purple would love to have the guy.

You said it...the Packers have a good young team (youngest in the NFL last year). Favre is more than "a little better" than Arod & TJack. Tjack & Arod never would have done as well last year if they were the starting QB's in GB.

You can't compare Favre's season last year to Jeff George in 1999 with the Vikes. The Vikes were coming off a 15-1 season and other than Moss (who had the best rookie year ever in 98), the rest of the purple mentioned were seasoned vets. In fact, it's pretty silly to put Jeff George in the same sentence.

I agree that the Pack & Vikes should do well this year. I don't see either winning more than 10 games though (unless Favre ends up playing again).

Back on topic, if the Vikings did tamper with this and tried to get Favre ilegally, I say anyone on this team that had anything to do with it should loose their jobs! Wilf is trying to run a class act team, and I would like to say he has turned it around pretty well, until this!

The Vikings have a bright future ahead of them, they have alot of good young talent. If someone in the front office messed up our future draft picks, I hope they pay with their jobs, and a fine!

I agree with you wandering. I would hate to see what happened to the wolves happen to the vikes. I would be [PoorWordUsage]'d as heck with that and heads should roll for sure. I'm still going with they are friends and cry baby favre was probably looking for some advice. Who knows.

And if the Packers are just making this up, then fines and loss of jobs should take place over there as well!

So at what point does “I am a real American” come blaring through the speakers and the Hulk comes walking out of the tunnel to save the day.

I think Green Bay threw this tampering garbage out there to deflect some of the bad press they have been getting with this whole Favre unretirement thing. Nothing wrong with Bevell and Favre talking as long as it isn't a recruiting conversation on Bevells part. Proving this tampering thing will be next to impossible.

Or.... Maybe it's a Favre/Green Bay conspiracy setting the Vikes up so if we get caught we'll lose a few much needed draft picks in the next couple of years. YEAH that's the ticket.

That is verry possible. I just cant see taking a stupid risk at what they are accused of. Especialy when at the most he would only be offerd a 1 year contract by any team.

Bevell and Favre are good friends...I didn't realize wishing someone well on his endeavors after football was tampering.

Favre is on the verge of being washed up. Heck, 28 plus teams could use what he did last year. But who's to say that's the Favre you are going to get. Favre has been pretty average since what, 1999? He's been the best of the worst and the worst of the best.

    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
    • What a treat to see a tanager.
    • Beautiful pics as always Jim.  
    • woooowww thats really cool ,,, and the pics are great ))) i just imagined fishing under sunset ))) soo nice ,, take me with you to fishing
