Love Boaters Should be Benched..(Reaction to the Vikings recent boating incident)
Yahoo! Sports ^ | 10/13/05 | GeorgiaDawg32

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.

Yes, That's exactly what it is - a public sightseeing boat. They're about 60 ft long, and typically serve dinner on while giving a sightseeing tour of Lake Minnetonka.
cruise and are often hired by corporations for company outings, as well as open to he general public.

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.

But...it wasn't my daughter, she wouldn't be involved in this scenario---willing participants were.

THEY WERE EMPLOYEES. THEY COULD NOT PREDICT THIS BEHAVIOR.

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?

Wrong.

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.

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.

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.

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.

If found guilty in a court of law, these players deserve what ever punishment the law provides for. Until then, the notion that they should not be allowed to work, is ridiculous.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Please let's move on. What people do in their private lives is none of our business. It is only about SEX, so please move on...........

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?

When those that were are sitting on the bench with a suspension at a minimum I'll go back to cheering for the Vikings.
