Goodell 'hopeful' Vikings, state government can work out deal for stadium

DANA POINT, Calif. -- The Minnesota Vikings say their stadium situation has risen on the NFL's agenda.

Speaking at the NFL Annual Meeting, league commissioner Roger Goodell acknowledged economic challenges to the goal of a new downtown Minneapolis facility. But Goodell said Monday he's "hopeful" talks between team and state can yield progress toward a solution. The Metrodome lease expires after the 2011 season.

Goodell cited new University of Minnesota and Twins stadiums as evidence of the Vikings' need for a new place to play. He said Gov. Tim Pawlenty "recognizes the importance of that."

Vikings vice president Lester Bagley said team owner Zygi Wilf met with Pawlenty last month. Bagley also has met several times with key Pawlenty staffers.

The Vikings were updating other league owners on their situation Tuesday.

It's a clusterfuck up there.

And their new open-air baseball stadium, minus a retractable roof in fucking MN, gives me a headache.

Vikings need to start playing outdoors again. That would fix all their problems.

Man, that would be weird to have the Rams and Vikings switch divisions like that. Separating any of the four NFC North teams doesn't feel right.

Even that, why should the NFL allow LA to have a team if they can't even keep not only one, but two?

The NFL is hell bent on getting a team in LA even though it seems the city doesn't really care if they get one or not.

Makes more sense for the Chargers to move up north

LA gets all of Minnesota's teams eventually. Ever wondered how many lakes there are in Los Angeles?
