The "Schism" Is No Reason to Be Concerned...Yet

As you have probably heard, there seems to be a schism in the Vikings' locker room. And you know how much that matters at the moment? Not at all.

QB#4 is the starting quarterback. Are there some hard feelings about the way he joined the team? Most likely. Does most of the locker room want either Sage Rosenfels or the Tarvaris Revolution to be the starting quarterback right now? Probably.

But, as Matt Bowen at the National Football Post points out, that's what happens when special circumstances happen. And there will likely be some hard feelings about those special circumstances, but as the great football mind Brad Childress (heh) said, "Business is business". And football is a business. If the Vikings, and QB#4 are successful, none of this is going to matter. Honestly, if QB#4 comes out and plays well against the Texans, the controversy probably goes away--having a long track record of success tends to get you the benefit of the doubt that preseason success will lead to regular season success.

And even if he doesn't play all that well, he has some built in excuses that'll buy time until the regular season (you know, the whole "less than two weeks of practice time" excuse that he created for himself). Of course, if the Vikings and / or QB#4 stumble in the first four games of the regular season, well, then things could get ugly. Special treatment isn't a big deal if the team is successful, but if it isn't, it can lead to a whole lot of problems, many of which can lead to even more problems. But there's no chance of that ever happening, right?

I see where, one FAN in Cleveland filed a Law suit, this is a good idea, but all the FAN sites across the NFL CITIES, should start a Class Action LAW SUIT and expand it. Allowing FANS anywhere in the US to sign on. But make sure there is a Suit filed in each NFL CITY FIRST.


Just starting these LAW Suits in each NFL CITY will be a eye opening. If anyone has noticed, neither side in this Billionaire, Millionaire bickering, has mentioned the FANS, not the NFL Channel, not even the Media, or the Press, no one wants the FANS upset, or to act, or even respond to either side, or start talking about OUR FAN INTEREST.

Each NFL City has Fans that are Lawyers, male and Female, and one could file this Pro Bono and the fans could easily contribute the Filing FEE. We spread the WORD on each cities Fan sites, first the Cities and States with NFL teams and always allow Fans every where to sign on around America, NFL Football loving FANS, will respond and sign on. This will become the NEWS, just the Discussion around the FAN SITES and the each side and the NFL Channel will sit up and take notice and for the FIRST TIME in this crap sandwich, you'll hear discussion of the FANS, which both side are deathly fearful of getting organized, or even talking about the FANS INTEREST.

Watch the sparks fly and both side will get together and a break through will be spoken of. I' am interested in hearing what other think of our Role in this and what we think of not a peep about us from anyone, from the NFL, the PLAYERS or even the MEDIA or PRESS.
