On October 6, 2005 on Lake Minnetonka, seventeen members of the Minnesota Vikings football team were involved in one of the most famous deflating moments in Vikings history.
Essentially, there were stiff accusations that some of the players engaged in sexual conduct with prostitutes who were flown in from Atlanta and Florida.
The players in question were quarterback Daunte Culpepper, Fred Smoot, Mewelde Moore, Pat Williams, Bryant McKinnie, Nate Burleson, Ralph Brown, Troy Williamson, Travis Taylor, Kevin Williams, Jermaine Wiggins, Lance Johnstone, Moe Williams, Ken Irvin and Willie Offord.
Allegedly two boats were rented and some, but not all of the players performed sexual acts in front of crew members.
Apparently, a woman called police around 9:20pm on October 6 to report that "seven black men" had urinated in her yard after exiting a "big shuttle bus limousine," according to the transcript. The woman later mentioned that the men were "sitting at Al and Alma's," the name of the charter cruise company that the Vikings players were later alleged to have used for the party.
With this story comes a whole host of graphic details that we really don’t need to get into here as the event was embarrassing and deflating enough.
