    The Vikings are definitely worth 625 to start with. They will get a stadium. If the Cardinals can get a stadium, the Vikings can. No way of getting around that. And just like the Moss deal, the Fowler deal will go through too. Not many deals that are announced fall through, so Fowler will be the next owner of the Vikings.
    It is a huge difference if you can get the state to pay for it or if the owner has to pay for it. No owner wants to have to finance the deal themselves. Stadiums are like a used car. They grow old and nobody wants them anymore. Have to replace them. OK they are not like cars they are like humans, they grow old and nobody wants them anymore. Just kidding.

    But no owner wants to put the money in themselves. Without the stadium, Red should sell a little cheaper. If it was a steal for that price there would be more people in line to buy the team.

    fowler is out (espn news)

    Tough Read, 3 whole pages WOW!! Good find Cajun!

    Overseeing business interests that have been sued 36 times is no small thing, so I can understand the good folks in Minnesota being nervous about Fowler's rep.

    But Fowler already has said that, should he succeed in his bid to buy the Vikings, the team's fans will be his top priority. At a recent news conference, he told the media: "I'm excited to be here in the Twin Cities, the state of Minnesota, to let you know that we are here to, No. 1, acquire your team and hopefully put the team back into the hands of the state of Minnesota and let you know that we're committed to being here."

    What's that? You have doubts that Reggie Fowler will make good on his word?

    I can't say that I blame you.

    Those words do sound good, though.

    He also said he wouldn't trade Moss. Not a good start IMO.

    It seemed pro black owner and then with this quote, it took a turn.
