    Re: Wilf Keeps On Spending Money On Vikes!

    I've always believed, you are who you hang with and feel like how you dress..

    Saying that, Ziggy has shown and continues to show, he is willing to make the changes to bring a SB to MN....

    I think it's great he's taking care of buisness on all sides, facilities, Coaches, and soon I'm sure players......

    Way to go Zig.......Keep it up....

    Re: Wilf Keeps On Spending Money On Vikes!

    Da article said, dey are improvin' and enlarging da facility cause dey have more people in dere now. Ya needs ta grow as a team, so's ya needs ta have a bigger place for everybody in it, y'know?

    It's a little ting, mebbe, but, little tings mean a lot, y'know? When Bud Grant foist came into coachin da Vikes, he instituted a lot of nit-picky rules. A lot of da players started tinkin dat dey had a Mickey Mouse coach, y'know? But, the mental discipline started to seep in after a while, and they became more professional in their attitude because of dat.

    Now, Wilf is makin some improvements to da old stadium. May not mean much, but it may make a mental statement dat will rub off on da team, and if it helps da team in da routine runnin' of a franchise, I'm for it. I'm always tryin' ta make improvements in my cell, here, but dey usually involve tunneling out. We almost made it last time, but we tunneled up into a cement factory. Wasn't where we wanted ta go, but at least 10 hardened criminals escaped.

    Da guards are makin' da rounds now, so I'll see youse mugs later.

    Who cares? The players get fancier digs now, yippee. How does that affect how they play?
    It not only shows a commitment to the players, but also a commitment to the organization and franchise as a whole. With Stadium talks still ongoing, this is a good PR move as well.

    I say good job! It is about time that we had an owner who was willing to make a real investment in the team. Skol Zygi!

    Re: Wilf Keeps On Spending Money On Vikes!

    Found this snippet of an article by Sid Hartman while I was just browsing around . . .


    The Vikings have hired the California consulting firm Winner and Mandabach Campaigns to run their public relations campaign to persuade people here to get behind Zygi Wilf's plan to build a football stadium and a $1 billion real estate development in Blaine

    My only point is, all these people are getting excited about Wilf spending 2 mill on new digs, but it doesn't affect the fans or the play on the field, so who cares? Giving players millions to play the game is enough of a commitment to them in my mind.

    Last year was his preseason for the team. He had a lot of changes ahead of them and I am glad that he is taking the steps he wants to take. It seems like he has a lot of support behind him and I cant wait to see the final product.

    KEEP IT UP WILF!!

    Re: Wilf Keeps On Spending Money On Vikes!

    It should also help our team because according to the article our practice facility was meant for use by fewer players than we currently use now. So now all players should be able to use equipment and have a good amount of space. I could see that helping our team.
