    From The AP--"The man in line to assume control of an ownership group bidding to buy the Minnesota Vikings and Reggie Fowler is still a part of the group. Zugmunt Wilf, a New Jersey developer. spoke publicly for the first time in an interview with the Star-Tribune. He made it clear that he plans on keeping the Vikings in Minnesota. "That is not even an option.," said Wilf of moving the team. This is a storied franchise and our group is looking forward to making this a world-class N.F.L. Franchise on and off the field for the fans of Minnesota. Wilf made the latest of several visits to the Twin Cities last week to meet with landowners and local officials about a new stadium north of Minneapolis. Wilf did not rule out seeking public funding for a new Vikings stadium." I'll bet he didn't!! Wilf sounds like he is purchasing the Green Bay Packers, when says the Vikings area storied franchise and his group is going to make this a world Class N.F.L. franchise on and off the field for the Minnesota fans. Sounds like Real estate developer /Lawyer BS. It's been over 40 years and Vikings have yet to win a N.F.L. Championship. As that is a storied Franchise in N.F.L?? The Packers have won 12 N.F.L. Championships and are owned by the fans in smallest city in Pro Sports. NOW The Packers are truly a storied Franchise!!!! And are not for sale to anybody!! Can't Red find anybody willing to buy that franchise who is from Minnesota?? Unbelievable!!!

    Yes, but he won't sell it to him. Glen Taylor, owner of the T'wolves wants to buy the Vikings, but Red McCombs didn't like his offer. It's all about who will pony up the most cash in the end.

    Taylor would have been best for the long term, and who knows he night have a shot again in 5-6 years.
