    Ol' Red could miss out ...

    Firstly the Viking Update site is suggesting that Red might not be able to move the Vikes to LA even if he wanted to. Seems that they may be fourth in line behind the Chargers, Saints and Colts. The thought is that SD would be the preferred choice due to the location and minimal disruption to League planning

    However the Saints could have the first chance of moving as their current lease expires next year. If you look at the link below then - on current finances - the state of Louisiana could struggle to meet the payments to prevent them moving in the near future

    It would make more sense to move the Chargers there for the reasons you mentioned. Saints fans would be upset, they have a huge following along much of the Gulf coast. But hopefully someone else moves there and Red's only option is to sell the team to Glen Taylor or another local buyer.

    I can't wait until Glen Taylor is owner and we have a new stadium, so we don't have to constantly worry about Red moving the team. All he cares about is making money and he doesn't care how many people he pisses off to do it.

    This news puts me more at ease. I hope its someone like the chargers because it wouldnt be as disruptive to scheduling. at least its in the same state.
