After the Shame, Vikings Pursue Virtue in Victory - New York Times
Minnesota's loyalty has been tested many times before. Starting in the mid-1980's, the Vikings began cultivating their renegade image as the Raiders of the N.F.C.

Trading Randy Moss last off-season was supposed to rid the organization of embarrassment, but the controversies became more colorful and harder to stomach. When tailback Onterrio Smith was caught in an airport with a drug-masking device - famously called The Original Whizzinator - he spawned enough jokes to fill late-night talk shows.
