The Minnesota Vikings for several years now have been trying to get public fund to help pay for a new stadium, but it has been to no avail.
With another bill falling on deaf ears in the Minnesota State Legislature Vikings fans can start saying their goodbyes with the Vikings lease with the Metrodome expiring after this year.
According to the Minnesota Star Tribune, via Pro Football Talk, the bill landed with “a thud.
The fact of the matter is that Minnesota’s state government has no interest in doing anything with the Vikings until they solve their budget problems. Also, the bill pitted local governments against each other that way the Vikings would have to pay as little as possible. Finally, on top the Vikings didn’t even like the draft of the bill.
In the end, it looks like Los Angeles will finally get a football team.
