    McCown is proving he's anything BUT a leader and he is trying to blab his one-upmanship over Cousins, and only a proving he himself is a dumbass sheep. These self-righteous, pro-jab followers of the followers are so duped they feel better about themselves somehow, in some twisted way, condemning those who won't go along with the worldwide fraud. Not only that, they feel they have to resort to "freedom, BUT...blah, blah, blah" narratives with their faggoty, panties in wads tirades. Pathetic, but typical media whores.

    McCown is obviously angling for a television job at Faux Sports or BSPN

    Irv Smith likely out for the season. Good news for Tyler Conklin, who's looked very good and is quite athletic, more so than Smith though all of DWFdom considers him a stiff. The Vikings did just trade for Chris Herndon after Smith's injury but he was a huge bust for the Jets.

    I had already figured Conklin to be yet another of those White TEs who "miraculously" outperforms the Black TE with limitless upside, so don't be surprised if Conklin has a breakthrough season.

    McCown is nothing less than a saboteur and, with that sort of outlook, a detriment to your team and a locker room cancer.

    One thing's for sure, Kirk Cousins is a better quarterback than Josh McCown ever was.

    Nick Vigil wins the starting job at WLB. Along with Harrison Smith the Vikings are back up to 2 palefaces starting on defense. On offense, if Tyler Conklin starts at TE, as he should over the recently acquired bust Herndon, the Vikings will start 6 on offense, 8 altogether. Still a team to root for especially with Thielen, Cousins and Smith.

    I've been watching some Norm videos of late, and he really was a unique and funny as can be talent. A huge loss, especially so when compared to the current era of practically no comedy at all, just court jesters serving the humorless commissars. I'm surprised he lasted as long as he did as the SNL news anchor in the 1990s, so much hilarious "politically incorrect" material, Lorne Michaels and most of the SNL cast probably despised Norm.

    I've seen several posters online declare comedy died before Norm did! I just watched a mashup of his takes on Clinton's. Friggin hilarious.

    Not to derail the thread, but he was the best fake news anchor they had.



    Regarding the SNL cast, I’m sure the writers and higher ups disliked him as they are all likely radical leftists. However, most of the cast that he worked with seemed to love him. Norm was always featured in a lot of their projects so I’m sure there were genuine friendships. For example, Rob Schneider is an outspoken conservative. Then there are guys like Adam Sandler, Colin Quinn, Jim Breuer and David Spade, to name a few, that I’ve heard are all “conservative” to some degree. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if alot of the famous guys from the 90s were just “normal American men”, not like the insane lefties who dominate the cast in the last 2 decades.

    You're right now that I think back, though I don't know about Sandler being "conservative," can't stand him or his movies other than Happy Gilmore. Quinn had his own show for a while that certainly wasn't liberal, and Breuer now appears on Tucker Carlson's show as a semi-regular.

    Yea, apparently Sandler “doesn’t get into politics”, which in Hollywood, is read between the lines speak for not a liberal. He’s apparently been a registered Republican at points in his life and has donated money to Rudy Giuliani when he was NYC mayor. Giuliani appeared as a cameo in Sandler’s movie “Anger Management” btw.

    I like a lot of Sandler’s older films. Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore and The Wedding Singer being amongst my favs.

    Weenieworld published two blurbs on Dalvin Cook yesterday. The top one appeared first, followed roughly an hour and a half later by the second one. Which one seems more believable? Weenieworld substantially edited the first blurb after publishing the second one; originally it was accepted as true and didn't mention the counter-charges and was filled with weeping sympathy for Cook.

    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Vikings RB Dalvin Cook is the victim of domestic abuse and extortion, and there is pending litigation. Cook alleges that his ex-girlfriend broke into his home using a stolen garage door opener and sprayed him and a guest with mace. She is also suing him for assault, battery, and false imprisonment, meaning the parties are now suing each other. At this point, there's nothing to do but wait and see what happens with the legal proceedings.

    Dalvin Cook has been accused of physical and emotional abuse in a lawsuit filed by his ex-girlfriend. The suit alleges assault, battery, and false imprisonment, and that Cook's alleged abuse caused a concussion. The woman, 29-year-old Gracelyn Trimble, also accuses Cook of holding her hostage with a firearm. Trimble is seeking unspecified monetary damages. The news comes hours after ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Cook himself was the victim of domestic abuse and extortion from Trimble. It would appear Cook's camp was trying to get ahead of these troubling allegations. That is not to presume anything. This has the looks of an ugly legal saga, one that is going to leave Cook's standing with the Vikings in question. Stay tuned.

    Thank god he got the Jab! Otherwise, he probably would already be dead. The magical jab is undefeated, because it promises nothing, it can never fail.

    Kenny Willekes didn't see the field for any of the Vikings' first seven games, but saw 22% of the snaps in Week 8 and 42% in Week 9. He turned those limited Week 9 snaps into 7 total tackles and half a sack. Gee, yet another White defensive player who is instantly productive when given a chance. And he's on a team that may continue to play him, however he's in the ridiculous Covid protocols for tomorrow's game. The unvaccinated Harrison Smith will also miss tomorrow's game (his second straight) for the same reason.
