    Just because Wilf gave us his word, doesn't mean it won't change or we need to believe him. Just like we don't have to believe a reporter.

    In past history we have heard "Moss is not on the trading block" before, only to find out that was not true & "I did not have sexual relations with that woman".

    Personally, I don't believe his intentions are to move the team, but just because he made that statement doesn't mean it's golden or cast in stone.

    Even if he's inclined to think about moving the team, does any one believe if it were true he'd come out & say it?

    Bottom line is 1st & foremost Wilf is a buisness man & the goal is to make money, not lose it.
    I disagree that that is the bottom line.
    Wilf is a businessman, sure, but he's also a football fan who has had season tickets since the 50s.
    You don't go into the sports franchise ownership gig to make money.
    You do it for ego or biggest toy or other reasons, but making money isn't, generally, part of the equation.

    Does he want to get the best deal he can for a stadium?
    Sure.
    It just gets a bit old when ANY indication is twisted to be "He wants to move the team to LA."

    Amen to that Zeus.

    Home opener not sold out? The team is going to move to LA!
    Stadium issue still being worked on? The team is going to move to LA!
    The 35W bridge collapsed? The team is going to move to LA!
    The groundhog saw his shadow? The team is going to move to LA!

    I hate hearing LA rumors every time Zygi farts.
    As of right now, no, I do not believe that there are any plans to move the Vikings to LA or elsewhere.
    Is it a future possibility?
    Of course.
    Thanks to Al Davis, the possibility exists for every team to move, with the exception of Green Bay (it's technically possible, but the city would have to sell the team first).
    It is also possible that I will be struck by lightning, but I am not going to live my life in fear of it.

    Everyone know in 5 years the team will move to Toronto not LA! As LA will already have a team by then.

    Things change.
    The city is now ready to put some money into the coliseum to upgrade it.
    Something that Al Davis was unable to get them to do a few years ago.
    Plus he was Al Davis and wasn't good at making friends in LA
    lol.
    The thing about LA is,
    it is the biggest television market in the country.
    That means instant dollars to both the team and the NFL.
    Also Arnold the governator is behind moving a team to LA as well.
    All things which the state of MN is coming up short on.
    Some team is going to move to LA that is a given.
    The Vikings are in the smallest and one of the oldest stadiums in the country and one of the smallest tv markets to boot.
    That coupled with no state support for the stadium and falling ticket sales does not bode well for MN.

    I think Wilf will make one more push for a deal in MN.
    If that doesn't work he will look elsewhere.
    If the people in MN want to keep the Vikes they better get some kind of grass roots movement going and put some pressure on you state legislature or your going to lose the MN in front of the Vikings name.
    These days I always refer to them as just the Vikes.
