According to ProFootballTalk.com, I’m on my blackberry so I don’t know where they got the story from, Minnesota State governor Tim Pawlenty has stated their is no funding for the Vikings in the new budget.
With the Vikings lease expiring after the 2011 season it look good for the Vikings staying.
For the governor not to place some funding for the Vikings after they have made it clear they are not renewing the lease is just assinine.
A football team means a lot to the tax breaks in the form of sales and income tax.
If Minnesota loses these revenues everything from schools budgets to medicaid will be afftected.
In the end when Pawlenty will regret this at election time.
