    Vikings could have 2nd London game

    The way they are playing it might benefit the fans to play all 8 over there.

    Of course they will. Isn't that what everyone has been expecting all along? I know it was originally reported as a distinct possibility when the London game was announced.

    The Vikings are the only team without a lease, so they can host a game in London without repercussions. And the Vikings are have the absolute amount of revenue generated from home games - even when they are sold out (which they haven't been lately).
    And when they are playing in TCF, that revenue will be even lower because of fewer suites AND fewer regular seats.

    Old Sid may have just as well reported that there is the possibility of snow in the winter. Must have been a slow news day for him.

    Your council meetings must have been very entertaining.

    ain't that the truth. Given that the Vikes were originally a possibility for the 4 year run that the Jags signed up to then not a surprise that we could see the Vikes back in London for a second year. I bet Sid is still getting over the shock that there is land to the east over the sea
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...
