But, now the team is worth less to another buyer.
I disagree. As a business, the team is worth the same with or without Moss. Red just saved Fowler several million dollars. And, we the fans will still be here. We will still buy the tickets and jerseys etc. We are the ones who are emotionally attached to OUR team. For Fowler, it is business. We will continue to bleed purple whether Moss is here or not.
The only way that this type of a thing wouldn't make good business sense for a new owner were to be if there was a possibility that they would lose a large chunk of the fan base. Seeing that we know this won't happen due to the fact that Vikings fans are extremely loyal, it doesn't hurt the teams value one bit. It just hurts our psyche.
I have faith that things will be better with a new owner and quite possibly better without Moss. After the initial shock of this trade is over, look across the league and see what has made other franchises into champions. Like so many of you have pointed out, it is much more than one player that makes the difference.
Vikings will win the SB in the near future if they fill a few holes. The core is there and they now have an opportunity to show us. Our offense will still give other teams fits. If we can put a top 10 defense together we will win it hands down.
