From the Associated Press :

Minnesota Vikings players have encouraged teammates to boycott a local TV station in response to a report Thursday night related to the infamous boat party.

At least 10 signs – reading “Boycott Channel 5” above a red circle/slash through the KSTP-TV logo – were posted in the locker room yesterday.

After getting a tip that offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie and running back Mewelde Moore were seen dumping garbage at a construction site near their Eden Prairie homes, KSTP reporter Kristin Stinar rummaged through the dumpster and discovered trash belonging to McKinnie.

Remnants of a party were found, including a list of several female names and incoming flight times handwritten on Vikings stationery. But McKinnie said the garbage was a result of a gathering he had had at his home two weeks before the infamous cruise. Moore said he ran out of room for his trash in his own bin.

“It was just a lame way of getting viewers to watch the show,” McKinnie said.
