    Pro soccer in Minnesota???

    Vikings | Wilf wants a Soccer Team in Minneapolis
    Tue, 21 Jun 2005 05:30:53 -0700

    The Pioneer Press reports Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf wants to bring a Major League Soccer team to Minneapolis. For Wilf, whose ownership group just laid out $600 million for the Vikings, the MLS franchise fee of between $12 and $20 million would be less daunting, especially if he already had a stadium. The Minnesota Thunder is a local pro team that could possibly be bought and moved to the MLS. Wilf said he is "concentrating on football" right now so soccer may be on the backburner for now.

    Pro bowling? Anyone who is against a legit soccer franchise in their state simply desn't understand how great of a game it can be. The MLS has not acheived the level of play that happens overseas, but if it does soccer will sweep this nation by storm.

    MLS shouldnt even be considered pro its about as interesting as NFL Europe.

    To me this shows he doesnt want to move the Vikings since he wants to bring more to Minnesota.

    Wisconsin wants a soccer team too...problem is that the local players only want to run around on a field that has sheep in it...and that would totally disrupt the games. LOL

    Be carefull, you know what happened in SPAIN.
    The best soccer player Luis Figo ( Portuguese) Was involved in a huge trade from rival Barcelona to Real Madrid. SINCE THAT MOMENT, no one has stoped attacking him and defending him, ones said that the best player in the world was amazing but was destabilizing the team, that the needed balance and a better Defense, others said you could not have trade the best and the most amazing simbol of the club! TILL NOW ( years after) Webmasters in soccer forums of Barcelona still are getting mad to have that same discusion in those forums!!


    :grin: :grin: SOUNDS FAMILIAR? :grin: :grin:
    Vikings from all over the world. Lets unite!

    The best soccer player is Thierry Henry, not Luis Figo.
