Samantha Ponder just became a lot more likable.
GameDay’s Samantha Ponder (formerly known as Samantha Steele, wife of Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder) stated on Twitter that she was verbally assaulting Pollack on the bus and that he “needed to make her a sandwich.”
HAHAHAHAHA. Good for her.
We all love a good media fight don’t we? Well, this is actually more than that; as Samantha Ponder is making an important statement, fighting back against sexism.
On Saturday, college football analyst and ESPN College Gameday co-host David Pollack suggested women shouldn’t be on the selection committee for the college football playoff. It’s rumored Condoleeza Rice will be named as one of the nine members of the committee. Pollack performed a bit that was a more sexist version of the “you don’t know because you didn’t play routine.”
The suggestion didn’t sit well with Samantha Ponder who tweeted:
“Verbally destroying @davidpollack47 on the bus for his comments about Condi. Next, he

The Buffalo Bills were trying very hard to sign Josh Freeman but it wasnt enough. Per Adam Caplan the Vikings will sign former Buc QB Josh Freeman. @caplannfl: The #Vikings and QB Josh Freeman have agreed to terms on a contract, source confirms. Believed to be for one season.
Josh Freeman has joined the Minnesota Vikings. Released last week by Tampa Bay after a series of barbs with the team the former first-round pick joins a team that already has Matt Cassel and Christian Ponder on the roster.
Cassel was signed as a free agent in the offseason and started last week for the Vikings guiding them to their first win of the year while filling...
Christian Ponder took a measured, low-key approach with his public reaction to the Vikings signing 2009 first-round pick Josh Freeman as his competition.
Christian Ponder earns the least of the top three QBs on the roster, but he is the only one with a contract into 2014 with Matt Cassel’s option to opt out. The economics and statements around the Vikings’ quarterback position are upside down right now, and that’s more revealing with the ranking of salaries on the roster.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- One of the first orders of business for Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier on Monday morning was a meeting with his team as it returned from the bye week facing an unknown situation at quarterback.
If Frazier doesn't have a full-blown quarterback controversy on his hands, he at least has a delicate scenario after Minnesota agreed to terms with Josh...
Josh Freeman, who was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday, is signing with the Minnesota Vikings. Freeman’s agent Erik Burkhardt made the announcement via Twitter. Vikings!!! — Erik Burkhardt (@ErikBurkhardt) October 7, 2013 According to ESPN NFL
Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier says Josh Freeman still needs to pass his physical Monday afternoon, and the quarterback will not be playing in their upcoming game on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. “He’s another good football player that our personal guys along with
Christian Ponder probably won’t have to endure the ugly exit like Josh Freeman, but his run as the Vikings’ franchise quarterback might be over thanks to the former Buccaneer.
Freeman’s tenure in Tampa had the promise of being a special one, but personal struggles and a clear rift with head coach Greg Schiano led to a dreadful divorce from the team. Now, he’ll get a second...
Publicly, the Vikings gave continued support to Christian Ponder, claiming his future is still bright. And yet they acknowledged that Josh Freeman is here to start in the near future to make an evaluation before his contract expires at the end of this season.
Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said Josh Freeman won’t start at quarterback this Sunday when the Carolina Panthers travel to Minnesota. The 25-year-old Freeman signed with Minnesota three days after getting clipped by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 3. Freeman struggled mightily this season over three games as a Buc and completed an abysmal 45.7 percent of his 94 attempts...
It sounds like Vikings head coach will not rush newly acquired QB Josh Freeman into the mix this weekend versus the Panthers. Freeman won’t be in the mix to start Sunday, but the former Bucs QB will have a chance to compete for the lead role according to Ben Goessling:
Frazier: See how Christian does Wednesday. He and Matt will be starter options. Not trying to get Freeman...
Josh Freeman or Christian Ponder? Hmm, that’s tough. Christian Ponder or Josh Freeman? Sounds like a sink-or-sink opportunity for the Minnesota Vikings. And that’s ironic because Vikings are known for their prowess in shipping. Josh Freeman has agreed to one-year deal worth $3M with the Vikings, according to Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports 1.
So what happens now? Has anyone seen...
Minnesota's starting quarterback this week will be Matt Cassel or Christian Ponder, not Josh Freeman.
Beyond Sunday, there's no guarantee.
The Vikings were finalizing Freeman's contract Monday. He didn't make it in time for practice but was scheduled to arrive later in the day. Coach Leslie Frazier said there's not enough time for Freeman to learn the offense...
The Minnesota Vikings (1-3) have agreed to a one-year deal worth about $3 million with former Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-4) starting quarterback Josh Freeman. What it means The Vikings already have starter Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel on the depth chart. Ponder, who sat out last week with bruised ribs, was a first-round selection in […]The post Josh Freeman jumps ship to Minnesota...
