02:54 PM ET 05.24 | The Minnesota VIkings are entering an interesting period in terms of where the franchise is headed, but there's a massive, mulleted question mark standing in the way of fans fully embracing the change. Jared Allen told the Star Tribune earlier this week that he would leave the Vikings if they asked him to take a pay cut and he hasn't backed off that claim. In fact Allen is continuing to question his future with the Vikings and has said he's not sure if he'll be with the Vikings in 2014 after his contract expires. Allen is entitled to a decent chunk of coin for living through the terrible teams Minnesota has produced the last few years since 2009 but you can't complain about not having good talent and then lock the safe when it comes time to chip in and put your money where your mouth is. Vikings fans are growing increasingly displeased with Allen and this lashing out at the team he has been so much a part of is a really bad look for Allen -- worse than the mullet which is increasingly becoming uncool with each hostile remark he makes.

I'm pretty sure the fans are not growing displeased with this situation. Where did this guy get his information? None of the call-ins to local radio stations have shown any displeasure. They all seem to understand it's business as usual for a guy going into his free agency year.

I don't blame JA for his posture ,as it was written into his obligary contract, and had nothing too do with him being asked or offered another deal.

Packers will rule the North Division! Again!

Allen will be 32 when he's a FA, he may have to take a pay cut.

The Packers and Vikings seem to be the two favorites in that division.

Urlacher didn't, but I think he's got a few fumes in the tank and retiring as a BEAR.

Both of these Player Brian and Jarad played for the same teams for most or all their careers, and felt slighted.

can you blame them?

Allen was drafted by the Chiefs and played a few years with them before joining the Vikings.
