Is there no end to the shakedown? Zygi cheated the State on the TCF Stadium bill. It's time for him and his bunch of crooks to leave once and for all.

Yet another Zygi flaw exposed with regard to proper business conduct. Now we all know why he failed to get any private investors for his Arden Hills 'Taj Mahal' and instead is trying to get free taxpayer money!

I can understand why the payment has been delayed. Zygi needed the cash for the down payment on his $19 million pad in NYC. I wonder if he'll try to get government assistance to pay off his mortgage?

snow removal - were there not a bunch of volunteers shoveling? do these guys ever pay their bills? When is the last year that they paid rent at the dome? Another very, very good reason to avoid doing business with this guy and this team.

First they claim it was a sellout - when there were 15,000 empty seats, now they claim they lost money... blah, blah blah. If you are losing money then you would sell the team, take your 200 million capital gain and go back to New Jersey, but your aren't are you.

The Vikings say they "lost a significant amount of money" by playing at TCF stadium...maybe thats because they were used to paying NOTHING in rent at the dome. Cheapskates and crooks just need to leave town.

Solid evidence that the Vikings are completely clueless on how much it will cost to run a team that plays in the outdoors. The new staium figures aren't even close to what that money suck on the state tax payers would truly be.

If this is how they handle business, what can we expect if they have to play there for 3 years while a stadium is built on the Dome site? They'll ruin the place! I've tried to support the Wilf's but this is absolutely shameful.

So both parties agree here is no dispute but John Marty can't pass up an opportunity to rip on the Vikings. Classy.
