Skip to comments.Love Boaters Should be Benched..(Reaction to the Vikings recent boating incident)
Posted on 10/13/2005 3:15:15 PM PDT by GeorgiaDawg32
Any Viking involved in what supposedly happened on that boat, and any Viking who wasn't involved but didn't try to stop what was happening, should be booted from the active roster.
Still pay them, if that's what is needed to satisfy union requirements. But under no circumstances allow them on the field to represent the Minnesota Vikings.

They didn't just have sex from what I understand. They did it like an orgy all out in the open, masturbation, etc., in front of crew. Then they go an take a p!ss in some ladies yard. It's disgusting! However, I am laughing under my breath a little.
THEY WERE EMPLOYEES. THEY COULD NOT PREDICT THIS BEHAVIOR.
You can wear that princess crown any day as far as I'm concerned :o)
Nonsense. We share. : )
A friend of mine is from Minnesota and said today that this type of behavior is not surprising. Many times when players are seen in public they are arrogant, obnoxious, belligerent jerks.
So a bunch of guys went on a boat and saw some strippers. It's disgusting but American men do exactly the same every day of the week. What's the big deal?
See post 34 and foward... this was on a public lake and a public boat
There were 4 crew members on each boat. They were told it would be a cruise for players, wives and girlfriends.
20 minutes out they learned they had leased the boats under false pretenses. The supposed wives and girlfriends were high paid strippers.
So take YOUR 20 year old daughter, have her standing behind a bar on a boat serving drinks, sodas, coffee... and there are suddenly five 250-300 lb Vikings standing around the bar blocking her in. They place a "stripper" on the bar and proceed to perform oral sex on her while YOUR daughter is trapped behind the bar forced to watch this at close range. When she tries to get out she's asked if she's going to dance for them later...
Still think everybody on that boat was a willing participant?
No? I didn't think you would.
Did anyone watch Greta last night? The boat's manager( or whatever he was) was on and said he couldn't even say on T. V. the stuff that was going on. Sounds way worse than just watching some strippers. He mentioned open sex acts and masturbation in plain view, many people, in front of crew who were unable to control them and were indeed frightful.
If there were people there who were not willing participants, then I stand corrected.
LOL - well if you insist.
the crew were reportedly afraid because the situation quickly became very wild.
Read the article before commenting. It'll make you seem more informed.
I wonder if off shore drilling is allowed in Minnesota.
The "big deal" is that they had an orgy with the strippers on the boats, essentially, and intimidated the wait staff, expecting them to participate. Now the kids who suffered the misfortune of working that cruise have to be concerned about retaliation for telling the truth about what happened.
This is one of the ugliest things that has ever happened in pro sports, in my opinion.
You sure got that wrong! Completely wrong!
When I lived in Minnesota (12 years ago) they Vikings players were much nicer. "Whiskey" Wade Wilson bought me drinks the night he got busted for DUI in Bloomington.:)AWB
This would not be a problem if the President allowed off shore drilling in Minnesota.
The crew was afraid because while they are trained to handle medical emergencies and severe weather emergencies, they aren't taught how to handle 40 large men engaged in open public sex in the middle of a lake.
I would say intimidated is a more accurate word.
Did I read correctly that there were (sex) toys involved?
Nobody here can figure out why these idiots didn't just go rent a hotel room or go to one of their houses.
Why rent a boat where there will be staff that isn't part of your party?
Did they honestly think nobody would notice or care?
The stupidity is almost as shocking as the behavior.
I wish I could concur - but I can't. Pro athletes are pulling this sort of nonsense all the time. Why? Because we never hold them accountable and keep right on buying those tickets.
I'm afraid I'm lost on the whole 'Whizzinator' thing. Mind filling me in?
And as for the Vikes' behavior...well, it's kind of expected considering that Ray Lewis is still playing. Outraged? Yeah. Shocked? Not really.
You did read correctly.
The used condoms all over the floor of the boats after they left was the good part of the night...
Can't we let the law enforcement in Minnesota do their job before we try and convict the entire team? This story seems to imply an extraordinary level of lawlessness.
Furthermore, it looks to provide an opportunity to prove why states need/should be allowed to have laws that govern sex among consent adults in public places. We cannot allow the left and their MSM to further degrade our society by covering up and ignoring these alleged crimes. But at the same time, we should allow the legal system to function in this case.
Now if the authorities in Minnesota cannot find that a crime has been committed, or lack the will to prosecute, then I would think the citizens of Minnesota should rethink their slavish devotion to the rat party.
I'll bet ANYTHING half those boys are on the down low.
I kinda wish that Bill O'Reilly would pick up on this story.
1. I concur.
Oh, lord, is that what happened?
You mean these scumbags are too stupid to realize the consequences of not taking care of their scumbags?
No wonder why so many NFL players go broke paying child support....
Vikings RB Onterrio Smith got caught in the airport with a thing called the Whizzinator, which is to help him avoid failing drug tests....
from what I understand, the female workers on the boat were also propositioned..that may be incorrect, but it's what I've heard..
He did yesterday. He had a local KFAN radio commentator on.
I understand Greta interviewed the attorney for the restaraunt.
We'll see if he follows up on anything tonight.
I thought it was some sort of mutiny that happened under Eric the Red. The benched part was they had to row that oar unassisted. I gotta learn to read the stories.
Believe me, what you've heard in the media is very sanitized.
The lawyer has been interviewed on local and national TV and radio and he has said that he's speaking in language that can be broadcast at the "dinner hour" for obvious and necessary reasons.
What on earth could they have been thinking?
And does anybody think this is the first time they've acted like this?
Do either of you have a link to a local "gossip filled" article........LOL.
I don't think this is the first time they have acted like this, but I think it is the first time it has happened in public...
I keep hoping that this story blows up and exposes the some of the darker corners of the sports world.
I sincerely doubt this is the first time they've acted like this..they're professional athletes who get away with anything..like I said in the first comment, any of us would already be in jail and charged with a myriad of crimes..but since these guys are above the law, they must "work through the system" before anything is done...i.e., let it drop off the radar since we have to win on Sunday....IMHO
Some Vikings players had some sort of seuxual misconduct charges filed against them on a team snowmobile outing a couple years ago. This is not an isolated incident.
I understand that the Minnesota Vikings are the best in the NFL in compartmentalizing.
Their private lives are separate from their football lives.
What's the problem?
Here's one former Vikings fan cheering for the Bears this weekend lol!
I know a lot of the names... who was there and who wasn't.
When those that were are sitting on the bench with a suspension at a minimum I'll go back to cheering for the Vikings.
I wonder how many (former) Vikings fans feel the same way..
one link :
Grand jury may be called in alleged Arctic Blast assaults (minnesota Vikings)
If the football board at my office is any indication a whole lot lol!
I have gotten a ton of email from friends up in wisconsin speculating on who was involved... I will be intrested to see who gets fielded this weekend and whether or not the Team will say anything in the next 48 hours.
