    RED ALERT

    Webby, not sure if this should go in another part of the board, but we should keep a running thread on Mr McCombs and the sale of Vikings. God knows we all want him to sell eventually, and hopefully some of you can keep us all updated!

    Peter King from SI talks on the inside the NFL show on HBO and he said last week that he thought the Saints are the contenders for LA.

    The lease that they did with the Dome is tight. Someone wrote or said earlier this season that we should be thanking the guys that wrote this lease otherwise our team might have started the process of packing yesterday right after our game with the Eagles.

    oh... nothing makes me madder when people say im from wisconsin or michigan getting it mixed up with minnesota

    RED ALERT

    I seriously doubt that the Vikings will ever be allowed to leave Minnesota. I have heard several times from several sources that the league just won't allow it.

    I would like for Red to sell however. And obvious preference is to somebody who is going to keep the team in Minnesota. I think somebody else who is actusally willing to spend some money on a coaching staff instead of going for rock bottom prices and getting rock bottom results would be a good thing.

    Out of curiousity, how many fans would/could not be able to root for this team any longer if they moved to say Los Angeles. I am just curious. It raises the question, when is a team no longer a shadow of its former self...

    would just the move do it...
    the move as well as a name or uniform change?

    when are the Vikings no longer the Vikings?
