Wilf is not willing to put down his collection cup quite yet! He can smell that Dayton is the right sucker to line his pockets.

"many fans are worried the most popular team in the state could be lost to football-hungry Los Angeles unless a deal is reached soon" I'm not worried and I'm a fan. A true purple fan will cheer for the Vikings no matter which city they're in.

Funny how the NFL wants a team in Los Angeles but the citizens seem to care less. The Rams left. The Raiders left. Face it NFL, LA citizens don't care about you!

I was a staunch public financing advocate until I heard that Bob Kraft built his own stadium, and that he recommended Ziggy do the same. I didn't believe it until I googled "Patriots stadium financing". OK I'll admit I was wrong.

Wilf is getting pretty picky for something at a time when most people dont support public funding for ANY of the stadium

How greedy can Wilf get? He'll be laughing all the way to the bank! The Governor should stop cozying up to him and have him pay for the stadium himself.

There is NO WAY the Vikings will move to LA - call Zygi's bluff! The Chargers and Raiders make the most sense for a move, and as far as relocation is concerned, the Jaguars and Rams provide better options than the Vikings (smaller markets, struggle to sell out games).

"I think everyone realizes this has to get done," Wilf said.... No, Mr. Wilf. It doesn't. There are a lot of things this State needs. But building a new stadium isn't a priority when we're $5 Billion dollars in debt.
