The Vikings say they’re “extremely frustrated” by Governor Mark Dayton’s decision to push for a new stadium at the site of the Metrodome, where the team has played since 1982.
According to one report out of Minnesota, it appears that owner Zygi Wilf could simply be working his way through the five stages of grief.
Charley Waters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Wilf will “reluctantly accept” the Metrodome site, but that nothing is final.
Building a new stadium at the Metrodome site would mean that the Vikings would have to play elsewhere for multiple seasons. The “elsewhere” would be the open-air facility where the University of Minnesota plays.
The Vikings hosted the Bears there in December 2010 for a Monday night game after the roof of the Metrodome collapsed.
