In the game of yet-to-be-determined, I bet the Wilfs will win every one over Dayton and the state of Minnesota. Their business ethics may be questionable, but when in comes to making a deal, they win, we lose and pay, pay, pay.

To each his own. A seat license for the privilege of buying an over priced ticket to watch 12 minutes of actual football action? I can't afford the luxury.

Notice how Bagley uses the words wiggle and squeeze in the same sentence. At least you told the truth in a subliminal way, Leslie.

Don't forget to mention the Tax Payers are paying for the Vikings to play at TCF stadium. The Vikings are not picking up that cost either.

Hurry up and get the deal done so you can build the ugliest stadium in the NFL

The Vikings will get everything they want in these "negotiations," the stadium board does not have the skills, background or drive to effectively negotiate on behalf of the taxpayers. Sad.

The only way many of us will find our way into that stadium, is perhaps one day on a tour.

If I were in charge---I would't do business with this family. Get new owner--maybe the state of MN---sell shares to the fans. Send the Wilfs back where they came from.
