    20 million non-refundable?? Red may be sharper than I think. If Red tells the owners he made a mistake and not to vote for fowler he pockets 20 million? I can think of a few better ways to blow 20 million. Who gave Fowler the advice?

    It also should be easier to sell a winning team. 20 million for free agents that raise the price of the team.

    If PPE is correct my opinion of Red goes up.

    Remember, I don't know it to be true or not, it's what I heard. I don't like to start rumors unless I know for a fact.

    Ah Red, The 20 million reminds me of Al Davis getting 10 million (not refunded) from the city of Irwindale in good faith money to participate in a new Southern California Stadium to keep the Raiders from returning to Oakland. Al got the money and left town(in the era of 100 million dollar stadiums).

    It also reminds me of my second favorite P.T. Barnum quote "there's a sucker born every minute".

    My favorite is "Every act is an animal act".

    OK so Peter King doesn't think the sale is going to go thru... What does that mean to us? Red has been spending like he was spending someone elses money, is he basically trying to make the team unattractive with the long term contracts so that in the end he can move to L.A.? Any thoughts anyone? And where does this leave our man Taylor?

    Oh God, I hope not!

    Yeah, I hope Taylor buys the team if the sale falls through! I think a lot of people would be very happy if he ended up buying the vikes! I think it would be easier to get a stadium deal done also!
