The plaintiffs who exposed the Wilfs for their financial fraud should purchase the naming rights. I would truly love to see a big 'ol "Loser Wilfs' Stadium" from the blimp camera above. A losing team, losing court battle, destroyed credibility... Truly a success story, they are.

"Naming Rights" going to Wilf? Why is that? Oh yeah, we had expert negotiator Mondale looking out for the taxpayer's best interests. Lucky Mr. Petters helped Mr. Mondale out with a loan that he does not have to pay back, despite his current $136k salary to continue his sell-out of the taxpayers. Wilf's net worth went up by at least $200 million, based on Gov Dayton's fairytale about e-pulltabs. The StarTribune photo of Dayton & Wilf throwing dirt at the taxpayers was really appropriate.

I don't even have cable, and I will not spend a dime for anything NFL related. Too much money going for nothing important.

It would be justice to have Wilf pay all of the plaintiff attorney's fees and costs. Moreover, the Wilfs should be punished for making a mockery of the judicial process by using every procedural gimmick to delay or derail the final judgment. Looking forward to seeing what they are worth -- though I suspect that it will expose our negotiators (Mondale, Dayton, Rybak, et al.) as colossal incompetents, who have been complicit in this gifting of hundreds of millions of dollars to an out-of-town fraud, who parades himself as the Vikings owner.

This guy on the video had the nerve to say the Wilf's have been good corporate citizens by giving in on Wells Fargo signage, letter of credit if more money is needed for the stadium, and a million dollars for the park. That's a joke right? Basically Wilf has donated $1 million back of the $500 million we are giving him. This guy is not paying attention. The Wilfs should have had no decision in the signage and the increased money is not a guaranteed thing. Please StarTrib, give us someone who really gets it next time.

We've come a long way.... I am an original viking fan going back to the first days of the franchise, when people sat out in the extremes, and entire families could afford to see a game, tailgate, before and after the game, and have a blast at this total experience. Now, you are going to get Wilf and his Taj Mahal, seat licenses and ticket prices that only the elite and wealthy can afford. And when you discover that there are not enough wealthy Minnesotans to buy all the tickets, the games will not be sold out and you will get blacked out too; especially if this teams' management does not change. Ever see Ford field in Detroit at the end of the year when the Lions are losing? You can almost count the number of people in this mammoth stadium. Way to go Minnesota.... you have a stadium to be proud of; second to none, that is worth nothing to Minnesota fans.

I would really struggle to find the money to see a viking game today. When the new stadium is done, and the ticket prices announced, I know I will never ever see the inside of this stadium for a football game and I think that is going to be true of most middle class Minnesotans. Blackouts? which mean we are going to get to watch another NFL team on Minnesota TV stations... guess.... who that is going to be!

No mention of the Judge's comments regarding the Wilf's business practices she ruled on? "Fraud, racketeering.. Mafia like tactics"? This whole new stadium sham should have been put on hold until this case was fully concluded and the Wilf's paid up.

It's amazing how many people in MN are so against this stadium but the governor and his minions went ahead with it anyway. This is going to cost MN more than even fathomable. Remember that when going to the polls my fellow Minnesotans!

Maybe the Metrodome will survive, after Wilfs worth is known. The dome is great for football.
