You know, some sportswriters might question the "$81 million -- $30 million of it guaranteed -- to sign receiver Bernard Berrian, safety Madieu Williams and fullback Thomas Tapeh." They might say, "That's a lot of money for a fullback, when we already had one, a safety on the worst defense in the league, and a Wide Receiver who pretty much refuses to catch over the middle."
But not Sid Hartman. He believes in the Vikings ownership, just as he believed the Timberwolves ownership when they told him they weren't trading Kevin Garnett.
Sid thought, rather comically, that those three signings fixed most of the Viking's most glaring problems. But he was ever so happy to report that the Viking's' ownership isn't done overspending. (Is DJ Hackett still without a contract?)
Read this column, and ask yourself--who wrote more of it--Hartman, or Zygi Wilf? Seems to me the Star Tribune is paying a lot of money for an old stenographer.
