    That is a tough one. Too many unanswered questions. Would they keep the same look and feel? Would they change colors or not even be called the Vikings if they moved? I have to stop typing because I don't want to think about it anymore. Hopefully they stay.

    Re: If the Vikings left Minnesota would you support them?

    Discussions like these, make me f-ing mad. I'm not sure if I could still be a fan...my connections with this team in relation to the state of Minnesota are too strong. Emotionally, it would be tough. :'(

    I've nver been on the Daily Norseman website before. I LMAO when I saw the Vikings Arrest Clock. 42 days, 12 hours....

    I would not support the Vikings if they left. Maybe become a Jaguars fan or wait until the expansion team comes.

    By the way, I gaurantee if the Vikings left, they would become the "Kings".

    Re: If the Vikings left Minnesota would you support them?

    You know, we've had a thread like this before and I voted no for the same reasons I don't even think about the "Stars" anymore.

    However, I have somewhat changed my mind on this.

    I think I am now looking at it objectively and am asking myself, has the owner done everything in his power to keep the team in MN and still provide the fans a quality team that is built to win.

    So far I believe he has done more than can be expected at this point and the blame will fall to the state, the businesses that get the benifit from the team and to some extent the voters of MN who elected thier current crop of officials, which by the way are the ones I will hold most accountable as they are the ones who have continued to missmanage the taxpayers hard earned dollars the the MN voters entrusted them to spend wisely.

    Sounds kindof harsh but that is my current thoughts on it.

    Long story short, I will probably still cheer for them and will follow them but will always have a feeling that I am cheering for someone elses team.

    :'(

    Re: If the Vikings left Minnesota would you support them?

    Yes, I would.

    I have been a fan for almost 40 years and would hate to see them leave, but I understand that the economics of the current sports model is not one that works well in our state. Without the state kicking in large amounts of tax money to keep these teams here, the fan base is not large enough to support the teams on their own so we are in an endless cycle of dumping public money into facilities to keep teams from moving. We just got through with the Twins, The Vikings are now the team with the tin cup and after theirs gets filled, the TWolves will be next in line. That process will take a decade to get solved and then by that time the Wild will probably need to have a big renovation to add more profit making suites etc.

    So if the team finds that they can make more money in a different state, that is a choice they will have to make and as long as they are still the Vikings I will support them just like I did with the lakers as I watched games with my grandfather. He still supported them playing in LA until the day he died.
