    Wait for funding could force Vikes out of Minnesota

    http://www.gazetteonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20081025/SPORTS/710259918/1008/sports

    Minnesota and its most popular sports franchise are heading for a showdown in which fans could lose either their money or their team.

    The Vikings' lease with the Metrodome expires in 2011, meaning the 48-year-old NFL franchise could move after that season. For years, the Vikings have pushed for a new stadium at various Twin Cities sites. That still seems to be the course for Minnesota owner Zygi Wilf, who talked about the stadium issue with The Gazette in August...

    Can we not resign the lease?

    Idk much about this but I dont think the Dome is that bad.. Obviously it doesnt bring in much revenue but I would rather have that then the Vikes to be the L.A Vikings

    The Metrodome generates the NFL's lowest revenue, and the Vikings are a revenue-sharing drain on the NFL.
    Kindof says it all right there doesn't it? :

    Then you'd think that the NFL would do more to help us out.

    With the economy the way it is, I think it is going to be very tough to get public money going forward. It is looking more and more like the best plan would have been fro Red to build it himself back when he owned the team. They would be getting the revenue from it already and they could have done it much cheaper than it will cost waiting for the Govt to react.
