Vikings look to be done in Minnesota

Paul KasprzakContributor IMay 19, 2010

The Minnesota Vikings have been pushing Minnesota’s state government for a new stadium for four years now.

However, it looks like the Vikings are done in Minnesota.

According to ProFootballTalk.com, the Vikings have issued a four page statement with the last sentence being, “This solution must be finalized in the 2011 session.”

The problem will be the reaction from Minnesota’s government as it will most likely anger them and make them decide not to do a deal at all.

The better solution would have been Vikings owner Ziggy Wilf calling up Minnesota’s governor Tim Pawlenty and let them know his stance privately.

Also, usually going public with a problem in the middle of negotiations are deal breakers.

In the end, the Vikings will be moving to Los Angeles soon.
