NFL chatter with USA Today’s Tom Pelissero, former senior editor of 1500ESPN.com. Before getting into some serious NFL discussion, there are several Mike Tice stories and drinking stories from Boomtown. The NFL schedule being released is now front-page news.

In the future of the NFL, will attendance matter, or can the league make money by other avenues?
Also, a surprisingly high number of ‘can’t come back from that’ moments throughout the podcast. Wetmore takes dating advice from Pelissero. But then Tom gets the podcast back on a serious note and provides a 'State of the Vikings' address.
