In an interview last week, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones confirmed that one of the primary reasons the ownership group opted out of the CBA was that they want to rework the revenue sharing model.
Jones explains his reasoning in this quote...
"Right now we are subsidizing this market. It's unthinkable to think that you've got the market you've got here, with 3.5 million people, and have teams like Kansas City and Green Bay subsidizing this market. That will stop. That's going to stop. That's called revenue sharing. That's on its way out."
Despite ranking near or at the bottom of the NFL in revenue generated over the past several years, Zygi Wilf and the Vikings' ownership group has invested millions of dollars to put the best possible football team on the field.
They went out and acquired one of the game's best pass rushers in Jared Allen, brought in the speedy deep threat Bernard Berrian, drafted the game's best running back in Adrian Peterson, and this year they brought in a future Hall of Fame QB in Brett Favre.
And not once has Wilf threatened to move this team.
That said, the Vikings' lease of the Metrodome expires at the end of the 2011 season, and it is unrealistic to expect the Vikings to extend a lease in that stadium.
If they don't have a stadium solution in place soon, we very well could lose our beloved Vikings.
I don't want this, and I don't think you do either.
Now, there are a lot of misconceptions regarding the stadium proposal, and it is hard to really understand the situation without knowing all the facts.
That is why I am asking you to visit the Minnesota Momentum website (see link below) and read about the details of the stadium proposal.
