The last 15 months for the Vikings franchise has included a lot of losing, and a lot of Vikings stadium plan updates.
Florio is the Vikings Stadium Beat Writer around here, so I can’t offer much expertise on the matter. I can pass along a new statement from the team on the latest Minneapolis stadium plan by Mayor Rybak.
“We respect Mayor Rybak and the City of Minneapolis for trying to find a stadium solution. However, the Minnesota Vikings have a local partner – Ramsey County – with whom we have negotiated for several months. Arden Hills is the ideal stadium site for the State, the Vikings and our fans,” the statement reads.
Tom Pelissero of espn1500.com believes Rybak’s latest push has just been “noise.”
