    Vikings: Wilf era to begin today
    Staff and Wire Reports
    June 14, 2005 NFL0614.NOTES

    The $600 million sale of the Vikings is expected to formally close today, new owner Zygi Wilf said Monday.

    The Red McCombs era will end when the San Antonio businessman transfers ownership of the NFL franchise to Wilf, a New Jersey real estate developer.

    McCombs, a car dealer and founder of Clear Channel Communications, a radio/TV and billboard conglomerate, has owned the franchise since 1998.

    Wilf, a longtime New York Giants fan, is leading an ownership group that includes his brother, a cousin and three other investors, including Arizona businessman Reggie Fowler, whose bid to be the Vikings' lead owner fell short.

    Re: Zygi begins his reign today!

    I wish Zygi all the best and I hope he gets his new stadium (roofed or unroofed). But why does he want to own a football team? Plaything? Exclusive club member? Because he's got everyting else he wants? It's none of those things in my estimation. The answer is to MAKE MONEY!!
    Red found out he could make $80 million a year being a cheapskate, even in the old stadium, but that wasn't enough for him.
    I got a gut feeling that Zygi is more interested in making money through the building of a shopping mall, expensive housing and a stadium as a centerpiece. So where's he gonna put the most cash? You guessed it! The development. The Vikings will get the leftovers I fear. I hope I'm wrong but it will be interesting to see how this unfolds.

    I sure hope not...because if he screws the fans over, I will be relentless in my criticism of him...for now, I will just sit back and wait for him to show his mettle.

    Vikes have 9 - 10 Million left this year under the cap.

    Ziggi's first test will be to spend it.

    I didnt know that Red was the founder of clear channel. A man with that much wealth shouldnt own a sports team because all he is going to be in it for is the capital gain. Although a lot of people dont like Red, and rightfully so, he is a smart f'ing business man!
