Unfortunately for us Vikings fans, the past years have brought about uncertainty in the future of the franchise.
Rumors of the possibility that the Vikings could move to Los Angeles have grown from whispers to screams. These rumors have been planted by the lack of fiscal success in comparison to other NFL teams around the league. Currently the Vikings are the bottom dwellers of the NFL in the area of generating revenue.
As of now, I believe the future of Minnesota’s professional football team lies in the success of the proposed Arden Hills stadium.
Lately there has been speculation and indications that moving the Vikings could become a reality. While some of the speculation is just ridiculous (Rush Limbaugh buying the Vikings), indications such as the Wilf’s meeting with representatives from AEG (a group that purposed the L.A. sports complex) make this possibly seem real.
While I hope Minnesota does everything that it can to keep this great franchise around for personal reasons, here are five reasons moving the Minnesota Vikings to L.A. is a bad idea.
