This is getting ugly.

It seemed like the Vikings and Adrian were headed towards a marriage resolution, a “stay together for the kids” sort of deal. But it’s looking more like a messy divorce is in the offing this offseason.

VT’s Lindsey Young joined the show to talk about Adrian AND the happier topics surrounding the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings. Happier topics like the leadership of Rick Spielman and Mike Zimmer, looking forward to the 2015 Draft, and  the beautiful marriage of OC Norv Turner and 2nd year franchise QB Teddy Bridgewater. Do you remember him? Does anybody remember Teddy? The actual face of the Minnesota Vikings?

I say my piece about the former face of the team in the intro, touch on some Vikings News, and catch up with Lindsey on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.

Full episode after the jump!

Purple For The Win Podcast

[Note this is a cross-post from Purple FTW]

Vikings football never sleeps. Perhaps that’s why we’re 0-for-4 in the Super Bowl as sleep deprivation can be a mother.

Purple FTW has had a nice little break since the Vikings season ended (Insert – “Your team didn’t make the playoffs joke here”). But it’s high time to get back at it. The NFL is now a year-round league, ipso-facto this mom & pop podcast is now year-round too.

So we’re back on the weekly schedule.

This Thursday January 22nd, we’ll get a live report from the Senior Bowl with our man Luke Inman. He’ll point out a gem or two that Wheelin’ & Dealin’ Rick Spielman should keep his eye on for The Draft.

After that, new episodes will drop every Tuesday evening starting on the 27th. Most shows will feature a guest interview, although some weeks it’ll just be me mumbling on about how we need a true free safety so Harrison can spend more time down in the box where he’s best utilized.

Upcoming Episodes
• JAN 22nd (PM) – Senior Bowl Fiesta with Luke Inman
• JAN 27th – Adam CarlsonThe Viking Age & Purple People Podcast
• JAN 29th – Super Bowl Preview Special
• FEB 3rd – Andrew Renschen – Writer for First Round Grade
• FEB 10th – THE 100th EPIOSDE EXTRAVAGANZA
• FEB 17th – Christopher Gates – Founder of The Daily Norseman
• FEB 24th – Lindsey Young – Vikings Territory
• MAR 3rd – Free Agent Target Special

• APR 28th – Official Draft Preview
• MAR 5th – Draft Recap – WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE??!?

Also the plan is to do several LIVE shows from Mankato during training camp. Come to an arrangement with a local watering hole, plop down the gear, and have our favorite guests stroll into the Purple FTW! Thunderdome at their leisure to drop some nuggets about our 2015 Vikings. I’d also love to meet the awesome fan(s) of our humble podcast.

Bottomline is The Dirty Man is back for the offseason and looking forward to the most anticipated season that I can remember in my Vikings fandom. 2015 is gonna be a helluva ride. #GoalSantaClara

Hello!

My name is Arif Hasan, and for some reason, Adam decided to ask me to be the Editor-in-Chief of his operation—an incredible honor and one I hope to pay back with quality content and curation.

As such, I figured I should introduce myself so that people know where I’m coming from and who I am.

To start things off, I should just begin with how I became a fan of football and the Minnesota VIkings in particular. My commitment to football has been fairly recent, and it wasn’t until my freshman year of college that I had ever thought about having more than a passing interest in football.

A few of my friends decided it would make sense to invite me into their fantasy football league, a decision of theirs I still don’t understand. After a few initial refusals, I relented and joined their league several weeks before the draft.

This was a bad decision for all parties involved.

I had an insatiable desire to win and in my drive to humiliate my (far more knowledgeable) friends, I stepped through the looking glass. It took me two years to make the championship game and three to win the league. I still have fond memories of Team DukeBasketball—so named because the owner I was up against in the finals was an ardent Jayhawks fan. It wasn’t as strong a roster as Gerhart of Gold, but it had more spunk.

Along the way, I turned from a casual Vikings fan to a dedicated one, and then an unreasonably committed one in the 2009 season.
