    Vikings sale

    There have been some stories that Hecker has approuched Glen Taylor (owner of the Timberwolves) to be part of the group with him and Fowler. Who would own how much of the team, I have no idea. But with Taylor in the group I don't see him ever moving the team from Minnesota.

    The bad part is with that many owners who has the say on what the team does? Are they willing to spend money, do we sign free-agents that can help us or resign our key players?

    I know this subject has been beaten to death, but there was also an article in The Star & Trib that says the same thing so it looks like this guy is not a serious candidate for owner of the Vikes.

    Maybe Taylor and Hecker can work something out between the 2 of them to get something done and get rid of Red. :cheers:

    Fowler Bid In Jeopardy?
    By Viking Update Staff
    Date: Sep 2, 2004

    When Arizona businessman Reggie Fowler announced he had a group prepared to make an offer that Red McCombs would accept to sell the Vikings, there was some panic among nervous Vikings fans. Now Fowler's business has come under fire, which could affect his attempt to buy the team.

    When Reggie Fowler's name first surfaced as a potential buyer for the Vikings, there were two schools of thought. One was "who is Reggie Fowler?" since few people in Minnesota had heard of the Phoenix businessman. The other was panic -- another out-of-state owner with no local ties looking to make the Vikings the crown jewel of his business portfolio.

    But, there may be more people than just fans asking questions about Fowler's bid. VU has obtained documents that claim that, in the same six-year period that Red McCombs has owned the Vikings, Fowler and his company -- Spiral, Inc. -- have been sued 19 times for non-payment of bills.

    While lawsuits aren't unusual for large companies, more than half of the suits have been settled or won by the plaintiffs. When asked if that was typical, a business attorney with knowledge of the Fowler group called the number and the number of winning suits against the company "unusual."

    Will this be enough for Fowler's group to have a difficult time getting approval from the other 31 NFL owners should McCombs agree to his offer? VU is hearing it's not a death blow to the proposal, but it doesn't help -- which could keep the Vikings on the open market a while longer.

    Vikings sale

    I'm just curious why this topic is sticky. It is not as if a sale of the Vikings is pending, or even in serious negotiations. These are merely just some interested parties conducting some inquiries.

    Vikings sale

    Arizona businessman could buy Vikings
    Minneapolis Star Tribune (registration required)
    Businessman Reggie Fowler told the Star Tribune's Kevin Seifert that he could make an offer to buy the Vikings "in the next few weeks".

    Just read that on MSN sports rumors today. I tried to get the whole article but didn't feel like registering.

    Read it today
