I suspect $50 per seat is too much for the Viking "faithful" to pay..those loyal die-hard Vikings' fans--greatest fans in the NFL (sarcasm font). Hope it's at least $2000 per seat. Go Zygi!!

why do none of these articles mention the fact that there is only one body in this entire situation that can authorize the sale of PSLs, The stadium authority. The Vikings do not have the right to sell them, the way the law is written the stadium authority has the exclusive right to sell PSLs with any money generated going towards the Vikings share. The law does not say that they have to sell them and it does not say that the Vikings have any recourse if they decide not to sell them. this is a non problem. If the Governor does not want PSLs then he needs to tell the sports authority that he appointed not to sell them. problem solved.

Things like this never would happen if the state would have left this up to the voters,none of this would ever have happened since it would have been voted down. Can I look forward to seeing the face painters storming the capital. This is what happens when democrats [ Dayton,Mondale and Rybek} know whats best for us--- 3 cheers for John Marty22525.

Where's Larry Spooner now? Don't think we'll be seeing him high-fiving Mr. Wilf now. Mr. Spooner you just had you're pocket picked by the New Jersey hustler. But you're such a die hard fan you should be happy to pay to watch you beloved Vikings.

The two teams you used for comparison, the Cowboys and Giants, funded their stadiums privately. Minnesota tax payers are already paying their share, the Vikings, Wilf, needs to pay his part.

"Seat license fees are prevalent in the NFL" When I was a kid, the favorite argument among my peers was some variation of, "Well, why can't I have a pony? Tommy and Judy get to have ponies." My father would fix me with a steely glare and say, "The answer is no! Do you hear me? No. End of conversation." My father was a Vikings season ticket holder. My father is dead. Too bad. He could have put an end to this abominable PSL idea with one fierce stsare-down.

This is a joke, right? I can't believe that Dayton and Vikings fans were naive enough to believe that guys from New Jersey would contribute even a nickel of their own money. Of course they intended all along to get it from the state, the city, the NFL, and the fans, as well as any other rubes who were dumb enough to go along with the deal. This is just standard operating procedure in the business world, so wake up everyone and get out your checkbooks to fork over the entire billion.

(from article)"The governor's letter [to the Vikings] makes it sound as if he was not aware of this concept, and that should be no surprise to him or anybody," Lanning added. ---- Whenever I see Wilf's puppet on TV, he looks and sounds totally blasted. I'm not surprised one bit that he was ignorant of the fact. And, charge the fans 20,000 a piece to have the right to sit while at a football game. That will teach them a lesson.
