    I agree that Wilf should just build the stadium himself. I'm pretty sure he can swing it... I think he's in the mob, or some kind of organized crime syndicate...

    Come on, Zygi. Use your connections, break some knuckles, and get that stadium built downtown!!!

    Yup.
    And it makes it patently obvious why the Vikings need a new stadium - OWNED BY THE TEAM - if they are going to reach the top level of teams in the NFL.

    Good one, I think even the Bulgarian judges would rate that joke highly.

    Wilf actually offered $1B of his own coin earlier this year.

    Thank you Wilf for keep the eye on the prize. Keep the people focused and we shall soon have the proper management in place to run this thing right.

    They couldn't get it done with Anoka County kicking in an extra $285 million in addition to Wilf's $220 mil. Now that $285 mil offer is of the table & gone so it will be that much tougher to get it done. Someone has to make up for that lost $285 million.
