Purple FTW! Podcast: Are We Still Mad About 2009? feat. Josh Pelto & Luke Inman (ep. 410)

With the New Orleans Saints rolling into Historic US Bank Stadium Monday Night to open the 2017 season, it’s impossible not to revisit the 2009 NFC Championship Game and the hard feeling many of the Vikings faithful still harbor towards the Saints, the refs, and certain players on that Purple squad. But are those feelings justified? We explore in the first half of the show because I rewatched the entire game for the first time since seeing it live with me own two eyes on January 24, 2010. Plus for some levity, the debut of our new weekly segment The Happy Hour Half-Hour, with Josh Pelto (@JoshThePelto) and Luke Inman (@Luke_Spinman) having a few beverages and discussing some of the latest Vikings headlines. Sports Over Beers, if you will.

All that and more “Blame Childress” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Purple FTW! Podcast: Vikes Over Beers feat. Matt Helgeson and Logan Lafferty (ep. 409)

Actual FOOTBALL football is upon us! As the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings prepare to take on the New Orleans Saints led by future Hall of Fame running back Mark Ingram, we’re preparing for the season as well by jamming as much talk in as we can. To help us out, we welcomed in life-long Vikings fans Matt Helgeson (@MattHelgeson) and Logan Lafferty (@MrLeviathan) of the Strother Communications Group to hoist a couple of beers and enjoy some Blue Door deliciousness while talking Purple. We covered Adrian Peterson returning to Minnesota, why Alex Boone being kicked to the curb is no big thing, how Dalvin Cook could be the next big thing, and of course the mandatory Teddy vs Bradford talker.

All that and more “The Strothers Brothers!” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Purple FTW! Podcast: Wha Wha What's Your Fan-ta-ta-sy with Anthony Maggio (ep. 405)

With the NFL preseason wrapping up, that only means one thing: It’s fantasy draft season (or “SZN” as the kids say now). Anthony Maggio (@MplsMaggio) of the 1500 Fantasy Football Party joined us at Blue Door to drop some fairy tale football knowledge all over the dance floor with us. We talked about Minnesota Vikings players’ value (DON’T OVERDRAFT VIKES, YOU HOMERS. (Or do. You do you.)), draft strategies, boom or bust candidates, and of course some deep sleepers to make you the belle of your fantasy draft ball.

All that and more “Treadwell in the 5th? YOLO” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

The midway point of the fantasy football season is almost upon us and anyone who owns a current Minnesota Vikings player likely is not jumping for joy over their recent performances. While it is great that the team is 5-0 this season, the skill players on the Vikings’ roster have been far from fantasy superstardom as of late.

For the people who own wide receiver Stefon Diggs or tight end Kyle Rudolph, those smiles from early in the year have quickly faded away. Hopes and dreams for these players may have to wait another week as they will be facing one of the NFL’s top ranked defenses this season in the Philadelphia Eagles.

But the one thing about fantasy football that makes it so great are the player performances that seem to come out of nowhere (Adam Thielen owners know all about this). Do any skill players on Minnesota’s roster have the potential for a big day this weekend?
