Blog Photo - Vikings LB to fans: Get "super-duper drunk"One of the more delightfully inappropriate remarks from an NFL player this season comes from the linebacking corps of the Minnesota Vikings, and is buried deep in an otherwise standard "We really have to win on Sunday" article published in today's Minneapolis Star-Tribune. Vikings beat writer Mark Craig gets some boilerplate quotes from Vikings coach Leslie Frazier, and pulls out a few statistics on the Vikings' historical home field advantage. But the quote at the end is what makes the article so memorable.

"We have to play accordingly and our fans have to show up accordingly, which we know they will," linebacker Chad Greenway is quoted as saying after Sunday's road loss to Green Bay. "Hopefully, they're super-duper drunk. So drink liquor, not beer."

Greenway  followed up with some advice on for Vikings fans on how to get super-duper drunk. "I would say morning drinking," Greenway told the Star-Tribune. "Why not? You could pull an all-nighter. Then you'd have the drunk, tired guys who will really be obnoxious."

Sunday's game against the Bears is urgent for the Vikings because they're two games back on both Chicago and Green Bay in the NFC North. The wild card looks unlikely, as the Vikings have lost their head-to-head matchups with most of the competition. Minnesota is 5-1 at the Metrodome. but 1-5 on the road. In other words, they like their odds at home.

Greenway's remarks will almost surely draw a fine, and he's likely to upset some easily-offended fans.

He probably also upset the makers of the Metrodome's beer selections, Newcastle Brown Ale and Heineken, with those "drink liquor, not beer" remarks. Liquor is not served at the Metrodome.

in lieu of what happened in Dallas, Tx I think this comes off dumb, stupid and irresponsible for the safety of the fans and those on the roads.

Chad Greenway can tackle, so as far as I'm concerned he can say anything he wants.

I guess you would have to be drunk to watch them!  :P
What a dumb request.  As if the fans need another reason to binge!
