At the conclusion of most shows, a contestant will be offered a piece of negative Vikings news from the week and asked to “spin” the story into something positive as it relates to our favorite Minnesota football team. A couple minutes will be allotted for as thorough of an explanation as possible, and then the two ATL hosts will offer the participant a score (Scale 1-5) and reasoning for their decision.
The average score offered by BJ and Drew will be combined with a listeners grade (poll below) to create a final figure for the Skol Spin database. These scores will be kept on a spreadsheet throughout this offseason and made available within every About the Labor Podcast post on Vikings Territory for your perusal.
Our goal is to get as many Minnesota Vikings fans involved that want to be and determine a Skol Spin champion ahead of the 2017 NFL regular season. Can you spin even the most negative Vikings news development into something positive? Come on About the Labor and prove it — we would love to have you.
