"Ask Vic" will publish on Mondays and Thursdays through the offseason.
Malthe from Copenhagen, Denmark
More sad news out of the Washington football team with major executives being fired for sexual misconduct. Will Dan Snyder be held responsible by the other owners or do the winds of progress only blow so far?
After what happened to Joe Paterno, how does something like this happen? Maybe Snyder is too stupid to own a football team.
Milan from New York
Vic, when you were a kid, did you try to copy the basket catch of Mays? I did, but I thought Clemente's was hipper. My friend's father had a fungo bat and he would hit fly balls to us and we'd imitate our favorite outfielders.
You're forgetting the best part of Clemente's basket catch routine, the buggy whip under arm throw to the infield. Yes, Clemente's basket catch was more stylish. Every kid loved it and tried to imitate it.
Tom from Superior, WI
I feel lucky to have been born in the early '50's to enjoy the quiet, safer times. Every generation has its challenges, but do you agree it becomes more challenging with each generation?
The first time I saw the movie Sandlot, which was more of an early-'60's take, I felt as though I was watching my childhood. Sure, life is more challenging for each generation because there are more options.
Paul from New Richmond, WI
Vic, I was hopeful early on a season would happen. Now, I'm ready for it to be shutdown for a season as there will be nothing close to normal to enjoy.
I love football but I'd rather not watch bad football.
John from Sioux Falls, SD
Of all the young hair-product coaches that have come into the league in recent years, which one do you think best blends old-school football thinking with the modern obsession on play calling/design?
Sam from Olathe, KS
New students of journalism actually go out to say they want to shape public opinion.
There's nothing wrong with wanting to shape public opinion, as long as you first understand and accept the "News Writing 101" principle that one car doesn't hit another, two cars collide.
Bob from Green Bay, WI
Are there any busts in the NFL Hall of Fame that should be removed in this cultural revolution?
I'm opposed to throwing guys out of the Hall of Fame, under any circumstances, because it would set a very dangerous precedent. In my mind, the door to the Hall of Fame swings one way only and it has to live with who it lets in.
Travis from Sanford, ME
Only one Jags-related memory hanging in your office next to all the Steelers/Packers stuff. Vic, if it wasn't for the Jaguars and letting you do this sort of fan engagement, 99 percent of us would have no idea who you were. Why do you treat them like the red-headed step child of the three teams you covered?
You're just seeing one corner of the office. One whole wall features a large, framed picture of an aerial view of Jacksonville Municipal Stadium on 9-3-95, the day of the franchise's first-ever game. Also proudly displayed in my office is a championship trophy from the "11th Annual Jaguars Golf Tournament." It's a major award.
Mike from McFarland, WI
If there is no season, what does that do to veterans' bodies? Will Rodgers benefit from a year off to heal, or lose another year to father time?
I don't think the impact of a year off on the players' bodies is the issue. I think their contracts would become the issue.
Gary from Austin, MN
Do you have any idea what the significance is of the landmark court case "New York Times v. Sullivan?" Yes, it was a bad decision that went too far in the wrong direction and helped create the current mess with the media. Is the new truth in the media called clicks? Is unbiased now a four letter word in the media?
Public figures shouldn't be subject to public scrutiny? You want TASS?
Sean from Chesterfield, VA
The "virus" hasn’t changed us. We are still a country where half value freedom and personal responsibility, and the other half want to live as serfs to the state in return for a monthly pittance. This "virus" hoax has just highlighted which side each of us has chosen. I hope you enjoy your pittance. Freedom is a tough man's game.
Matt from Michigamme, MI
Vic, why don’t you use the Oxford comma?
I'm not an Oxford kind of guy.
Mike from Somerset, WI
Vic, Mike McCarthy is taking over a talented Dallas team. What do you see Mike bringing to Dallas that can help them take that next step.
I think he'll discipline that offense, clean up the quarterback's game and, in the process, take both the offense and the quarterback to a higher level.
