    Not to mention we have more than a few guys we've been lenient with, like Felton, Cedric Griffin and Tyrell Johnson. All of these guys have had DUIs while a part of this team and for the most part no punitive action was taken against them. I won't at all say that their actions were condoned though, because for all three of these guys it never happened again. For the longest time this has been a team that has shaped up guys with character concerns, and frequently its paid off in spades.

    IIRC Jared Allen was 1 "incident" away from a year long suspension. We still gave up multiple picks to get him and who could ever argue with that decision. I trust our FO enough that if they think a guy is worthy of being picked, and is committed to turning their life around, I'm all for it.

    All irrelevant because all of those guys were before the new regime. You need to look more at names like McKinnie and Berrian than those other guys.

    Doubt Spielman links himself to Mathieu.

    Spielman might not link himself to Mathieu but he is paying some attention to him.

    Spielman was just named GM this last year, so this is inaccurate.

    He was the Vikings' Vice President of Player Personnel and has overseen every draft since 2006.

    So he was still president of player personel, meaning he was a part of bringing those players to the Vikings franchise.

    He wasnt in full charge, though. And, Frazier wasn't the coach.

    Spielman wasn't drafting.

    I'll give ya Cook. Griffen, nah. Same with Felton. I don't consider them along the same lines as a guy who has repeatedly proven he can't stay away from marijuana.

    There's a difference. I'm with ya on Cook, though.

    Why is Griffen different? Also how about Simpson? It's pretty obvious that Spielman has no issues giving guys 2nd and 3rd chances.
