Viking break ground on New Stadium

20131203-173143.jpg

A pretty momentous day if you are a Vikings fan. They finally broke ground on the new stadium. This photo comes via twitter and, while it may haunt your nightmares, the new stadium certainly will not. It was a long time coming and, even though the team has struggled mightily lately, it should bring a hearty level of excitement.

Wolves deal Williams

Sacramento Kings Media Day We reported earlier that the Timberwolves may be trying to deal Derrick Williams to the Sacramento Kings. As of right now, it looks as though that’s exactly what’s happening.

 As it hasn’t been made official yet, the Wolves are working to trade Williams to the Kings for Luc Mbah a Moute (apparently the Wolves are worried about his knee tendinitis). Mbah a Moute has been playing roughly 21 minutes a game, Read the rest of this entry »

Will the Timberwolves trade Derrick Williams?

Derrick_Williams The Minnesota Timberwolves want to win, and win now (who doesn’t?). To do so the Wolves may need to part ways with Derrick Williams, and bring in a veteran big who can actually play the 4 spot. Not the swing style that Williams plays.

 Kevin Love knows that he is one of the better players in the NBA and he is going to want to win. He knows this, the Wolves know this. Which means when his contract is up (in summer of 2015), Kevin Love could bolt for a contender (or apparently New York, not that NY isn’t a contender and they sure would be with Love). So the Wolves have to do whatever they can now to win and keep him happy. Read the rest of this entry »

Wolves lose first game

Kevin_Love_quick_start The Minnesota Timberwolves lost their first game of the 2013-2014 campaign, and unlike years past, it wasn’t the first or second game. The wolves did struggle with a Cavaliers team that as less than stellar coming into the game, there is still a lot of upside for the wolves going forward.

 First I would like to state, as I’ve seen a few times on twitter already, the wolves being ranked 3rd in ESPN’s power ranking is not something wolves fans should focus on. The very same poll had the Miami Heat ranked 5th and the San Antonio Spurs in 4th, the two teams that both should have won a title based on how all games but game 7 were played (did that sound bitter/anti-Heat?). As much as it pains me to say it, the Wolves are not the 3rd best team in the league nor are they second in the west as the poll would have you believe. Read the rest of this entry »

What happened to the Vikings this time

Vikings_Cowboys_what_happened The Minnesota Vikings coaching staff are becoming increasingly good at impressing me at how bad they can be each and every week. The Vikings started out this game by being aggressive and smart, and keeping the defense off balance (even if I was trying to yell at Bill Musgrave through my television to run the ball more early).

Then, at some point that I wasn’t exactly sure when, the Vikings reverted back to their old ways. I was on the edge of my seat knowing we were going to lose when A.J. Jefferson intercepted a pass out of nowhere. I mean nowhere because the Vikings had gone some 160ish plays since a CB intercepted a pass. Read the rest of this entry »

Jared Allen remains a Viking, for now

Jared_Allen_goodbye The Minnesota Vikings were unable to make a last hour trade of Jared Allen before the trade deadline passed today at 4 p.m. E.T.

 This is a bittersweet moment for the Vikings who would obviously like to keep one of the best DEs to ever play the game, but they would have also liked to have gotten something out of a guy who’s sure to leave the team and to free up some cap space. Make no mistake here folks. Jared Allen’s days in purple are numbered. Jared Allen wants to get off this sinking Vikings ship and hopefully climb aboard the S.S. Superbowl contenders battleship. Will the Vikings be better next year? It’s hard to imagine them not being better next year, but they won’t be competing and Allen will be looking for a winning team.

 So goodbye Allen. Thank you for the years of great plays and awesome memories, and all the sacks of Aaron Rodgers.

2 hours left on 2013 trade deadline

Jared_Allen_trade_rumor With the hour drawing near of the 2013 trade deadline, it looks as though Jared Allen may have played his last snaps in the purple and gold.

 At this time Seattle appears to be the front runner with a rumored 2nd team in mind. I doubt the existence of this second team, but we’ll see. Jared Allen has been a true pro, and will be greatly missed by the Minnesota Vikings and their fans.

 Stay tuned to MinneSPORTa and we’ll keep you up to date

 Update: Reports have just emerged that Seattle is not talking with the Vikings (per Jay Glazer). Stay tuned.
