    Can they sell that which they don't own?
    They cannot do it without approval from the city of Minneapolis and Hennepin County.
    Both entities gave them permission this year.
    Now that the Twins and Gophers are not tenants, there was no opposition to the Vikings selling the rights.

    I think PP.O should buy a gate.
    Maybe we can buy a urinal, and put a TV over it, so we can finally shut Zeus up about that.
    We'd have to buy a trough (or whatever Jargo says to call it).

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Keep in mind that it is not going to generate much revenue...
    It's also not going to cost the taxpayers a dime. Win-win.

    LMAO!

    Except the dome doesn't have urinals...
    We would have to settle for the PP.O trough...

    More on the expected revenue...

    The Sports Business Journal, which reported on the field naming rights on Monday morning, said the Vikings expect a low-seven-figure annual sum for the field rights and less for the gate sponsorships. The Vikings are handling the sales efforts internally.
    $1-5 million a year isn't exactly going to catapult the Vikings out of their lowest revenue ranking.

    Don't forget that $1-5M is pure profit, it's revenue with basically 0 expense associated with it.
    That's not exactly peanuts when a team is struggling to turn a profit at all.
    The true measure of a man is what he'd do knowing he'd never be found out.
