Mike Tice fired

Talk about the world of sports here. And also a sub-forum to talk about anything else.

Being a Vikings fan since the old day's I hope the Vikes get a coach that will turn the franchise into the top class organization that Wilf has talked about.  I liked Tice as a guy, but I kinda think that a change right now is for the best.  I'm not sure who is available  to be the next coach, I hope it's someone I can get excited about.

It looks like Studwell is one of the candidates for personnel director, it would be nice if he got it, but I think the guy from Philadelphia has the inside track.

Here's my prediction,  The guy from Philadelphia gets hired as personnel director and they end up hiring Greg Williams who's with the Redskins now.  Especially if the Skins can win a game or two in the playoffs.  Wilf will throw a lot of money around at upgrading personnel and administration.

Wilf say's he's going to turn it into a first class franchise.  That begins with hiring his own people.   Stay tuned!

Okay how about Studwell as personnel guy, and Childress as head coach.  They were both at Illinois during Studwells playing days.

I am intrigued by this selection. I hope good things are to come. It's not as if they could get any worse. Go Vikings!

Yeah this is true. I had forgot about that, I wonder how sweet of a deal it is that made him leave?

Eh...he just wanted another crack at Super Bowl tickets.

HAHA man the Vikings are already a mess with the new owner in town. It only took them THREE months to fire their personnel director Fran Foley. People are still baffled on the picks after the second round. It's gonna be a great rest of the off season hahaha.
