Todd, man to man, I'm worried about you. You just don't seem at all like the guy we met in seattle.

If you ever want to talk about life, PM me for my cell. I don't know if you still have my number, but if not, I'll give it to you.

I guess you guys don't know what it's like for someone put you down and then see someone, or multiple people 'like' it. It's one thing to face, or know that someone thinks poory of you, it's the annonymous shots in the dark that get me. Knowing people favor you being insulted, or brought down a peg.

Guess it shouldn't bug me, but it does. Most of y'all have no experience with it that's for sure.


I don't blame you and I don't like to see anyone "put down" here and you know how I reacted to my own put down recently. You and I don't see eye to eye on a lot of things, that's for sure. Nevertheless, I may be your biggest fan. When you laughed at my mistake I was so angry, but you know, if it was from Joe Blow I wouldn't have cared.

I'm so grateful that you are here to chat with. I'm on Vikings Facebook pages where everyone speaks as one. (boring) I do appreciate it chatting with someone who loves the Vikings like I do, but thinks differently. I've had my volcano eruption, so I'll try to be good, now. Peace be with you.

How about we try this...

I'll thank you, Ian, for the offer. I'll thank you, Bruce, for the very kind sentiment. I'll apologize to all the good people here I've offended here and there with my posting style, temperament, words.

I admit to having a bit of a disconnect with being told I'm not the same person from - insert arbitrary time...but I've been told that more than once or twice. Even if don't see it, perception is reality I guess.

I'm not prepared to walk away, or quit, I'm invested in this, and care about some of the people here very much. It's probably best if I slink into the background a bit. For a decade, from my perspective, me beig me and fully participating inevitability gets under someone's skin. Or sets certain people off. Sure seems I've gotten in more battles than most.

Despite the perception I am happy and healthy. Still rolling along having beaten diaetes. Something I'm very proud of. Not looking for attention or trying to play any victim card...I am tired of fighting. So I will take s step back, self evaluate, and try to figure out what it is exactly that sees me bumping heads, sometimes disgustingly so with people, while others never seem to.

Thanks kg. I think mcfuckface's lapdog got their negative rating in too...



Hey, you got three stars!

I echo what other posters here have said, nobody even notices the star ratings unless you bring them up. They mean nothing.

Seems you have your psyche wrapped up in posts on a thread. Agreed, you should take a hiatus and do some introspection.

And FWIW, you don't offend per se, but most aren't into this being a touchy-feely support network. I PMed you.

As for the Vikings I have it on a good authority that this season's group is fiercely galvanized after a good year ended uncomfortably humbling. It is a journey and this group is still rising with a great deal to prove to themselves after struggling to close the NO game and unraveling in Philly. It is a working atmosphere, all business, with focus on execution. Vets are fine tuning and young players are absorbing but all are working toward the singular goal of winning the Super Bowl - emphasize winning - not just getting there.

Coach Zimmer is doing fine and wants everyone to know how bad he feels after the let down in the NFCCG which hit him hard but only strengthens his resolve to lead the Vikings to that elusive championship. It was a shot to the gut. Gotta deal with defeat if you want to enjoy the Victory. Coach Zimmer hopes you all still believe in your Vikings ... a team that is only going to be better and is anxious to prove it against the NFL's best.

Which part? - by the way Thank you and all for serving our country. No football or forums for discussion without those protecting freedom.

What that a football team is working hard? Coach Zimmer feels bad for the humbler and is driven to take it further? It's a young team that should be better? I suppose I could email Coach Zimmer and wait for a response. No I have no inside information other than most of those thoughts are common sense in my mind. I suppose the sarcasm can be missed as it was premised with back to Vikings and wrote in a reporting style. If so pardon any misinterpretation or if you feel misinformed.

The good authority ... Let's just say its a helluva lot better than wrapping on one another.

I've done that, because sometimes things here ( and you could argue that generally with the interweb) somehow seem so disconnected with my actual reality. Is it me being a jackass, or is it others just having douchebag Interweb personalities that don't really jibe with their real selves, or are they in fact douchebags in real life and the interweb is just an accurate depiction of their real selves? It's often hard so see that in others, and frankly it's hard to identify in myself, because assuredly others don't see me as I see myself.

Which most interesting man in the world? I could see it, if it was the second one. Definitely not the first.

I agree what they did to the dos equis man is horrible, but it pales compared to what has happened to a true American Icon.

Colonel Sanders has been stripped of all his dignity. What KFC has done to him is unfathomable.

First they bounce around to different stereo typical figures, to undermine his classic identity.

Then make him into some type of country singing transgender thingy?

Next, they tan him so much he looks like an actual piece of chicken? How is that supposed to sell chicken?

Although he can now sing a catchy beat, it's despicable what has happened to him.

I don't know. I kind of like the new ads. It makes me laugh and I like that.

How about we try this...

I'll thank you, Ian, for the offer. I'll thank you, Bruce, for the very kind sentiment. I'll apologize to all the good people here I've offended here and there with my posting style, temperament, words.

I admit to having a bit of a disconnect with being told I'm not the same person from - insert arbitrary time...but I've been told that more than once or twice. Even if don't see it, perception is reality I guess.

I'm not prepared to walk away, or quit, I'm invested in this, and care about some of the people here very much. It's probably best if I slink into the background a bit. For a decade, from my perspective, me beig me and fully participating inevitability gets under someone's skin. Or sets certain people off. Sure seems I've gotten in more battles than most.

Despite the perception I am happy and healthy. Still rolling along having beaten diaetes. Something I'm very proud of. Not looking for attention or trying to play any victim card...I am tired of fighting. So I will take s step back, self evaluate, and try to figure out what it is exactly that sees me bumping heads, sometimes disgustingly so with people, while others never seem to.


I've done that, because sometimes things here ( and you could argue that generally with the interweb) somehow seem so disconnected with my actual reality. Is it me being a jackass, or is it others just having douchebag Interweb personalities that don't really jibe with their real selves, or are they in fact douchebags in real life and the interweb is just an accurate depiction of their real selves? It's often hard so see that in others, and frankly it's hard to identify in myself, because assuredly others don't see me as I see myself.



I know exactly how you feel.

I see myself as a combination of Steve McQueen, and the Most Interesting man in the world, and I truly don’t get it when people view me differently..




Which most interesting man in the world? I could see it, if it was the second one. Definitely not the first.


Not sure I’ve been insulted worse..

The new guy is horrific, as are the new writers....

But thanks nonetheless..

That is called fixing something that isn't broken.

What's next? Getting rid of the whole Dilly Dilly cast.

You sure the tan Colonel Sanders isn’t the infamously tanned George Hamilton?

It’s beyond me why Dos Equis would scrap that campaign, and piggy back on it with this crap. It goes well beyond the new actor. I’m shocked they roll out a National Marketing skit that is devoid of any comedic value at all.

The original campaign raised sales profits by an insane 15.4% on its own.

Yes it is George Hamilton to hawk the extra crispy chicken.

The Dos Equis fiasco was supposed to be to rebrand the character to millenials. Epic fail. Millenials think the new guy sucks too. And your right. The writing for the campaign is just awful now. It used to be lines that were actually funny like the last time he flirted with danger, danger got clingy or he once parallel parked a train, while watching a series of things he has done over the years. Things that are actually interesting, like cavorting with royalty, sitting in hot springs with Japanese snow monkeys, climbing out of a hole in the ice with a giant fish. Now we get a lame joke while he kicks a field goal with a coconut.

I just don’t know why they need to give the Coloniel an identity crisis and how you are making your food product more inticing by comparing it to George Hamilton’s skin?

The the target audience canibals?
