    Re: Looks like Fowler can't come up with the money...

    F*ck Wilf...I still prefer Taylor...at least he has experience in running a sports team...plus he is a Minnesotan. All Wilf and his group are interested in is the real estate angle...not enough for me to get excited about. The rest is just smoke and mirrors...just like they used Fowler as the potential "first African-American owner" to get the attention of the league...I still don't trust those guys to keep the team in Minnesota!!!

    Taylor and Wilf would be good partners for this to happen. I don't think the team will move even if the Wilf group gets the team though, i'm not worried about it. Something will work out and no matter what it will be better than red.

    "These guys right now are planning on making their money off the real estate part of it," he said. "Now I don't know what that tells you. Does that tell you they're going to spend more money to make the team good -- or they don't care if the team's good? One could come to either conclusion." (Taylor quote from the following article)

    My concern exactly!!!

    This is a good point and constantly made by true Mn folk. I agree. Glen made his bucks there and did it from nothing, he is a real Mn guy.

    Back in 1991 Glenn gave me 3 scholarships when I was at M.S.U. I went to his house a number of times, shook his hand when he gave me a key to North Mankato and even watched George Winston play at his Christmas party. He was a real business guy even on xmas, but he is a straight shooter and he would be the best answer for the Vikes.

    Just another example of how lying on your resume comes back to bite you on your butt. Nothing that this guy Fowler said turned out to be true...he would have put together a move to the West Coast as soon as it was possible.

    That's why I also would prefer to see Taylor over Wilfie...this team cannot be moved from MN.

    Re: Looks like Fowler can't come up with the money...

    Anybody but Taylor would scare me. All these outside investors coming to Minnesota with dollar signs in their eyes but giving next to nothing in information about their own wealth, telling the faithful what they want to hear. ("I will NEVER move the Vikings!")
    Bah! I want to see Taylor at the helm. I'm kinda po'd at him for not ponying up the money in the first place, and letting the ownership situation get this far. But, he would be the best, imho. C'mon, NFL, vote DOWN the Wilf/Fowler team!

    Maybe we can petition the NFL?

    I just realized Glen Taylor, the owner of the Timberwolves lives about a mile from my house.

    Or atleast he has one of multiple homes by my house. I'm not sure if he lives in Illinois all the time.
