MN Kicker Listed for Sale in MN Buy & Sell FB Group After Vikings Loss
After Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers, Viking's kicker Dan Bailey was listed as For Sale by a user on Facebook Marketplace.
Despite a collectively poor game by then entire Vikings team Sunday, fans were left less than impressed by kicker Dan Bailey who missed four of five field goal attempts. After the Vikes fell 26-14 to Tom Brady and his new team, a posting went up in the MN Buy & Sell Anything Facebook Group that appeared to list Bailey for sale.
"Used kicker," reads the post's caption. "May be unemployed soon. Disliked by most the state. Any offer accepted."
Despite being listed at an offer of just $2, some even thought that was too low a price!
"That much for kicker that doesn’t work?," commented Travis Swenson. "Way overpriced!"
"Is the price negotiable?" asked Tony Renteria. Not everybody saw the humor in the joke, though.
"Seriously, have some compassion for the guy," commented Kyle Goertz. "You think he wants to miss?? Bunch of f’in haters. It’s just a football game anyways."
"I think the Vikings have bigger issues besides a kicker...injuries just to name one," added Dean Habel.
With another loss to their record, the Vikings are now 6-7 with a fading chance of making the Playoffs. They will host the Chicago Bears Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium. As of writing, the Facebook Marketplace ad is still published.
