Governor Dayton Threatens to Nix Vikings Stadium
The Vikings stadium could be in some trouble. According to Mike Florio of Profootballtalk.com Governor Mark Dayton isn’t happy with the Vikings for 2 reasons. One is the Vikings willingness to play home games in London while the Stadium is being constructed and two because the Vikings are planning to raise their portion of the team’s contribution toward the stadium by raising season-ticket costs with seat lisencing fees.
Dayton said “The project’s strong support came from many regular Minnesotans, not just rich Minnesotans, because they believed the Vikings are also their team. If a new stadium were to betray that trust, it would be better that it not be built.”
The Vikings were off the radar of Los Angeles as far as team’s that could move there but would be right back on the radar if something can’t be figured out.
