If the "Love Boat" happened under Goodell?
 
If the Vikings' Love Boat scandal happened under Roger Goodell's new strict rules, would he suspend that many players at once?


I apologize if this has already been a thread.

It's tough to say but it surely wasn't a good time in Vikings history

RaiderNation 04-20-2007 09:52 PM

hhhmmm i think it would handled the same

in the context of history.
EVERYONE DIES!

well. maybe not really. actually not even a little.

but i can sense impending doom overshadowing the vikes if that happens.
maybe blacking out their home games? that would put a damper on everyones spirits.

it's sad, because childress is a good man. marmion pride.

I'll co-sign that.

awfullyquiet 04-20-2007 10:18 PM

correct. spastic post indeed.

what's the ultimate punishment the NFL can dish out? blackouts. in my opinion. suspending the entire team wouldn't serve anyone's interest, cut the pay off, blackout the show, and let the fans basically wreck havoc over the organization for not being able to control their players.
and i would feel bad for brad childress if that ever happen. he's a good man, went to the school i grew up next to.

but that would just hurt us fans, and we didn't do any thing :(

And it wouldn't hurt the players at all, they'd get to keep their money. Sure it would hurt their reputation, but you'd have to at least take the big bats out on the fines.

Smoot would probably have gotten 4 games suspension and the rest might have had one or just a heavy fine.

Boston 04-20-2007 11:30 PM

I would laugh.

Think thats his point. I kind of agree, hopefully in a more literate way, but I agree. Suspensions arent good for the fans. I wouldnt care if the stripper that Pacman apparently slapped was my sister, I would still prefer to watch him returning kicks and playing CB than whoever replaces him.

Scarlett is so yummy :)

yeah, Childress blows.

Good question.

I guess we'll never know b/c Paul Tagliabue was still commish, but it's something to ponder.

I find it rather ironic that some1 with the s/n, "Severe Punishment" has a reply to this thread.

What time was a good time in the vikings history?

bsaza2358 04-23-2007 10:51 AM

If you look at the timing of the Love Boat situation, it was right around when Henry and Pacman were really starting to get into their "primes". The Love Boat helped push the NFL to the stricter policies that it adopted after. I think that Goodell probably would have not done anything more than Tagliabue, but it would have resulted in quicker and stronger steps towards the current rules. Basically, it would have pushed the timetable forward about 18 months.
