    Readers sound off on annual NFL owners rankings

    [size=13pt]Readers sound off on annual NFL owners rankings[/size]

    Vikings owner Zygi Wilf seems to have won over Minnesota fans by attempting to clean up the team's image on and off the field.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    23. Zygi Wilf, Vikings

    When Wilf was about to take over the Vikes in May 2005, then-owner Red McCombs declared, "It looks like Zygi's going to be the biggie." A little more than two years later, the question is, "Big what?" Minnesota's stadium situation is a mess, with no escape from the Metrodome (save a possible move to L.A.) on the horizon. The team's starting quarterback is... uh... who is it again? The head coach is, uh, you know, that bald guy. Meanwhile Wilf, who vowed to cut the players responsible for the infamous 'Love Boat' incident of '05, still pays big money to the prime organizer. "I don't think he realized when he bought the team that this ain't real-estate development," one owner says of Wilf. "This is hard work if you want to turn something around." Suddenly, to Vikings fans, McCombs isn't looking so loony.

    I don't think he has won over any Minnesota fans. I think almost all were disappointed in last year's season and this is a "wait and see" year for the fans concerning Childress. If he doesn't improve his record this year over last year I can see him out the door.
