After meeting Tuesday morning with Governor Mark Dayton, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said publicly that the league soon will disclose details regarding the league’s contribution toward a new Vikings stadium.
The $407 million to be contributed by the Vikings already includes money from the league. It remains to be seen whether the NFL will be going beyond whatever it had planned to contribute as part of the aforementioned (I hate that word, and I yet love that word) $407 million.
The Minnesota Legislature has six days remaining in its regular 2011 session to pass a stadium bill. To date, not a single hearing on the issue has been held.
