    Where there's a Wilf ...

    [size=13pt]Where there's a Wilf ...[/size]

    Zygi Wilf has a vision for turning the Vikings into a model franchise -- and running it like he runs his real estate empire, meaning his family will be alongside him at every step.

    It's nice for the Tribune (who is usually against building a new stadium) to look at it from Wilf's side for once.

    When you require nothing, you get nothing; when you expect nothing, you will find nothing; when you embrace nothing, all you will have is nothing.

    Mark it down. It's one of a few rare such instances.

    Re: Where there's a Wilf ...

    Wilf would like to see the stadium built for $750 million -- the amount it would cost without a retractable roof -- but the Vikings' partner in this process, the MSFC, wants a roof so the facility could play host to a variety of events.
    I love Wilf he understands the history of the vikings, but I wouldn't mind a retractable roof... as long as we do keep it open when its cold (not like deathly cold though). Wilf = best owner in football.

    It's a tradition Zygi and Mark would like to keep in the family for many years. Both brothers have four children, and Zygi said he has talked to his kids about passing the team on to them someday. Mark calls it a "dream come true to be involved in ownership in the NFL," and his brother agrees.
    Wow I would love to have the Vikings under this ownership for the foreseeable future.

    Quote one of my posts & look at the way I did it. First you select the quote button, add the "=" sign as I did, paste the URL link after that & then paste the title between the "][".

    yeah for Wilf. any owner who walks around in the crowds singing the fight song is a solid guy in my book

    Doesn't hurt that he allowed them to travel with him on his private jet, probably slipped them a twenty too.
