Hello everyone:

I like to copy and paste from actual articles (within the confines of fair use), but, when I try, all I get is ......................................

Example from an article about a feather: The feather is registered as a taonga tūturu under a system to protect Maori made objects. Only collectors who had license in the system were allowed to purchase it, and it can not leave the country without permission from the Ministry of Culture and Heritage.

NFL to test alternate system to measure first downs.

Ive been wondering how long a billion dollar industry would keep this stone age and largely inaccurate system in place.

  Bradbury had an interesting comment yesterday....
Posted by: StickierBuns - Yesterday, 06:34 AM - Forum: The Longship - Replies (8)

I'm paraphrasing, but he basically said he was glad to see Brandel start off activities starting so they can gain cohesiveness as a unit. Wes Phillips talked him up (Brandel) big time. Darrisaw-Brandel-Bradbury-Ingram-O'Neill will probably be the best starting O-line in years. Maybe not the highest bar as the interior has been suspect, but incrementally better with Brandel and moving in the right direction. The team tried to upgrade over Risner and I believe they think they have. Risner and his agent have been trying to get Minnesota to resign him, but he'd only come back as a reserve now....and I think Minnesota wants another young player to step up and grab the backup swing OG spot. Brandel was a 6th round pick, good value.

The more work together they get, the better. In 2025, I think the team will have a new starting center. I think it'll be Jurgens....if Brandel can start as a 6th rounder, it's not a reach for Jurgie.

I don't know if I'm more impressed with McCarthy's dime or the fact that Nailin Jailer is healthy and running routes.

  OT: Turbulence

If you're boarding a plane today, you might not want to click on these. I'm a frequent flyer by no means, but I have been on a plane at least 50 times, so I don't consider myself afraid to fly. But even moderate turbulence can turn my knuckles white. Can't imagine what it was like on this plane. 1 dead and 30 injured.

  Some UDFA money
Posted by: MaroonBells - 05-21-2024, 07:40 AM - Forum: The Longship - Replies (3)

No surprise that Murphy is the big one, but Jeshaun Jones surprises me. Not a lot of info on him out there. 6-1, 190, 4.5, Academic standout, two season ending injuries in his past. 

The Purple Persuasion
Some total guaranteed money from the #Vikings UDFA class per Over the Cap. For reference, last year OLB Andre Carter II got $340K and ILB Ivan Pace Jr. got $236K:

?OLB Gabriel Murphy: $245K
?CB Dwight McGlothern: $30K
?WR Jeshaun Jones: $235K
?OLB Bo Richter: $15K
?DL Taki Taimani: $100K
?TE Trey Knox: 130K
?OL Doug Nestor: 85K

  I got one shot to see JJM live this pre-season
Posted by: purplefaithful - 05-21-2024, 07:34 AM - Forum: The Longship - Replies (1)

The way the Vikings' preseason schedule sets up, fans might not need to wait long to see J.J. McCarthy.

The Vikings begin their three-game exhibition schedule at home on Aug. 10, with a 3 p.m. game against the Las Vegas Raiders at U.S. Bank Stadium. It could give fans an early look at McCarthy, the 10th overall pick in the 2024 NFL draft who's expected to get time to learn before taking over the starting job.

If that's the case, he might not play until later in the 2024 regular season, if at all, which would mean his initial exposure to Vikings home games could be one of his few as a rookie.

Complete Vikings 2024 schedule
After the Raiders game, the Vikings will travel to Cleveland for an Aug. 17 matchup that's expected to be preceded by two days of joint practices with the Browns, where coach Kevin Stefanski will face the team that employed him for 14 years.

The Vikings will finish the preseason in Philadelphia on Aug. 24, taking on the Eagles in a noon game before final roster cuts.

The Vikings will play just eight regular-season home games at U.S. Bank Stadium, though they technically have nine on their schedule, counting their Oct. 6 game against the New York Jets in London.

Vikings preseason schedule
Saturday, Aug. 10, vs. Las Vegas, 3:05 p.m., Fox 9
Saturday, Aug. 17, at Cleveland, 3:25 p.m., Fox 9
Saturday, Aug. 24, at Philadelphia, Noon, Fox 9
