Default Mike Tice Sure Runs a Tight Ship

Police investigate party attended by Vikings players

Oct. 12, 2005
CBS SportsLine.com wire reports

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Investigators are looking into a party attended by several Minnesota Vikings players that allegedly involved drunkenness, nudity and visible sexual activity on a pair of charter cruises last week.

No criminal charges had been filed as of Wednesday, and it could take a couple of weeks before investigators finish interviewing people who were on the boats, said Sgt. Haans Vitek of the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office. A police report was filed Sunday.

"It doesn't make things any simpler," coach Mike Tice said Wednesday, "and quite frankly I'm not happy about it."

Stephen Doyle, an attorney representing the boats' owners, has said cornerback Fred Smoot paid for one of the cruises last Thursday on Lake Minnetonka. He said about 90 people were on the boats, which returned to shore more than two hours earlier than scheduled when crew members complained about lewd behavior.

Tice, whose team has struggled to a 1-3 start this year, said Wednesday that the latest distraction "can tear a team apart or bring us together, and it's my job to bring the team together."

Smoot said Wednesday after practice that he was planning to take legal action against whomever "put my name in there."

"They're killing my name," Smoot said as he walked to his car in the parking lot. "Point blank. Somebody's going to have to pay for it."

The team released a one-paragraph statement Tuesday saying: "The organization has been made aware of the allegations involving our players and we take these allegations very seriously. We are working diligently to gather as many facts as possible. At this time, we have no further comment."

The locker room was mostly empty Wednesday during the time it was open to the media, and all the players who spoke refused to comment on the outing. Running back Mewelde Moore said he was on one of the boats, but saw none of the alleged behavior.

"That's crazy. Sex? Come on," said Moore, the team's leading rusher with 187 yards.

Vikings owner Zygi Wilf didn't return a phone call or an e-mail requesting comment on the report.

The heart, character - call it what you will - of this team is all wrong.

A talented bunch for sure but with absolutely no 'team ethic' - unless you count orgies of course - im sure they take a fair amount of team-work and co-ordination.

I really think they need a clear out from top to bottom - the way they continually fold when the season gets to its clutch phase speaks volumes.

Cheers

The only person on this team I have any respect for is Daunte Culpepper.That will change if Daunte was on the boat (which I doubt he was).

I like the way he handled his press conferance yesterday.

Tice has always struck me as an uninspiring and dull coach. Sort of like a football version of Herman Munster.

If Tice would have had the nerve to come down on Randy Moss and discipline him when it was needed that would have went a long way on gaining the respect of the whole team and showing them who the boss is.
I think it's a safe bet to wager that he's out of Minnesota at the end of the season...if not sooner.

Keep an eye open on eBay...knowing Tice, he'll try to auction off the chance to coach the Vikes for his last game for 100k...

I know Moss is a jerk but I've always kinda liked him. This just shows there were other character problems on this team.

Their performance on the field indicates Moss was much more important to the "team" than he was given credit for.

My judgement is still out on Culpepper, I've always throught he was an ok QB who lived off of Moss. We'll see how he grows in his "life without Randy."

Don't take my Randy comments the wrong way, I'd never want to see him in Pittsburgh. He's not Pittsburgh's style.

I just think Randy is a guy the media loves to ride for ever little thing when they'll let someone like Ray Lewis get away with murder (literally).
