Vikings stadium on hold pending final review of deal

The recent resolution of a 21-year-old lawsuit has prompted the powers-that-be in Minnesota to press “pause” on the Vikings stadium deal.

According to Richard Meryhew of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the Minnesota Sports Facility Authority has opted to delay signing the final paperwork pending an independent review by an outside firm.

And it’s more than one final look at the stadium deal; it’s an examination at Vikings owner Zygi Wilf’s real-estate business, the New Jersey litigation that resulted in a finding of civil fraud, the potential impact of the lawsuit on the private contribution to the stadium effort, and “extensive background checks.”

“We’re just double-checking everything at this point,” MSFA chairwoman Michele Kelm-Helgen said Tuesday.

Vikings V.P. of business affairs and stadium development Lester Bagley said the team will “fully cooperate,” but the frustration seems to be lingering not far beneath the surface.

“We will continue to be transparent and good partners,” Bagley said, via Bill Salisbury and Brian Murphy of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.  “We would ask the stadium authority not to slow down the stadium project while it is completing its research.  We have very tight timelines and delays will only increase the cost for everyone.”

In theory, it could decrease the cost for everyone.  That’s because, in theory, it could derail the project.

At this point, the chances of that happening remain unlikely.  But for something that wasn’t even on the radar screen 10 days ago, it’s a potential threat to the building on which groundbreaking is due to happen in a matter of weeks.

    That sucks but I am sure this will get done. Going to be an awesome building. Best in the league.

  4. thestrategyexpert says: Aug 14, 2013 9:31 PM

    It’s not possible it could derail the project according to this line from the article….

    The Wilfs have said the New Jersey lawsuit would have “absolutely no impact on the stadium project.”

    Jesus!

  9. skimbell says: Aug 14, 2013 9:42 PM

    Kills me how all the queenie fans run off the mouth about Packer people buying “worthless paper, phony stock etc.” and then turn around and don’t bat an eye at buying a billionaire a stadium for HIS team.

  10. andyzvk84 says: Aug 14, 2013 9:43 PM

    Two reasons I hope the stadium is de-railed:

    1. Taxpayer $$$ for a billionaire is nothing more than a handout to a special interest group.

    2. Vikings should build an outdoor stadium. Make teams play in the elements.

    Based on the designs of the new stadium, the Vikings are more interested in hosting a Super Bowl rather than playing in one.

  11. elkmoundsucks says: Aug 14, 2013 9:46 PM

    You’ve got to be kidding me. This could only happen in Minnesota. Thank God I left that screwed up state. They could screw up a wet dream, and have! The Vikings deserve better.

  12. thegreatgabbert says: Aug 14, 2013 9:50 PM

    They liked Zigy at first, he reminded them of FDR. Then someone pointed out that Roosevelt never had a mustache, but Hitler did.

  13. football2011 says: Aug 14, 2013 9:52 PM

    This is a total BS political stunt by governor Dayton. If I am Zygi Wilf I take a very public trip to LA and make it clear that I will sell immediatly if this BS continues.

    No kickoffs is just the start. Prob not the best time to invest in a new stadium.

  17. ravenmuscle says: Aug 14, 2013 9:54 PM

    What is there to double check? It’s welfare for billionaires. Everyone knows it, and cry all you want, but it’s not going away. You pay to play.

    Don’t like it? You could always move to Boise, Louisville, or some other city without professional sports.

  21. esalonen says: Aug 14, 2013 10:02 PM

    What a colossal waste of time and money. There is no way in H-E-double hockey stick that anything this “investigation” (which one would think would have been done before agreeing to the stadium deal in the first place) will do anything to prevent the stadium from happening, so why bother? It’s nothing more than a political “C-Y-A” that simply throws away more taxpayer dollars on essentially nothing. MN legislators knew what they were getting in to, and are now just trying to look better to their constituents. Just quit screwing around delaying the inevitable, build the damn stadium, and let’s all just move on with the rest of our lives…

  22. thatswhatimsayin says: Aug 14, 2013 10:07 PM

    Move along, nothing to see here. This is just a formality. The stadium deal isn’t going anywhere. There is no way Minneapolis is going to allow the entire re-development of the eastern corridor of the city fall apart. especially when private business is putting 400 plus million towards it.

  23. theytukrjobs says: Aug 14, 2013 10:17 PM

    Nothing but a dog and pony show. Shady or not, if the lawmakers signed a deal then that they can’t live with now, it is on them. Christ they haggled over the thing for a decade what else can there be to look at?

  24. jrmbadger says: Aug 14, 2013 10:18 PM

    When the verdict in the fraud case first was reported on PFT, I openly wondered in the comments section whether this would have an impact on the Stadium. My comments were openly mocked by a Viking fan who derided me, saying that it will have no effect.

    I’ll take my apology now.

  25. darkneptune73 says: Aug 14, 2013 10:20 PM

    Nothing will happen. However, if the State decides to pull out, I will go on record by saying this:

    “To hell with Minnesota”.

    Wilf is a morally bankrupt sleazeball, do you mean to tell me that the state of Minnesota is just finding this out now?

    From the same state that elected a pro wrestler to Governor and a B-list Comic to the US Senate, one cannot expect too much from the Minnesota elected officials.

  35. carp0417 says: Aug 14, 2013 10:50 PM

    The politicians are being complete douchbags because their electronic pull-tabs plan isn’t working out so they are acting like they’re trying to do whats right for the public. They all knew what was going on before they made the deal and they’re just trying to make themselves look good. They made the deal in the first place to get votes and they’re making a ruckus about this now to just be people pleasers. If they didn’t know about this already then they’re not very good at background checks with people that they’re getting into billion dollar deals with.

  48. Rick Spielman is a Magician says: Aug 14, 2013 11:40 PM

    This is nothing but political grandstanding. They’ve known about this thing from the beginning, but now that it’s public they have to put on a big show. Of course, a delay just increases the cost of the project and the state can’t even come up with their share of the money. Quit worrying about where the Wilfs get their money and get your own house in order.

  49. gbpackfan1990 says: Aug 14, 2013 11:48 PM

    Great owner ya got there. Its much better than having the fans have a share, as insignificant as it may be, of the team that willingly funds these kinds of things

  50. moss49thteam says: Aug 14, 2013 11:50 PM

    What I don’t get is….

    So the roof of the dome caved in during a blizzard. That is a hazard and you don’t want anyone there if was to happen.

    Was the actual structure damaged beyond repair?

    Were other alternatives looked at to repair or modify the existing structure? I don’t recall any stories about local communities losing electric or water due to damage to the existing stadium.

  53. contra74 says: Aug 15, 2013 12:25 AM

    Zzzzzzz….nothing to worry about here. Deal is done. Just a way to squeeze more money out of Don Zig.

  54. couple1314 says: Aug 15, 2013 12:36 AM

    Don’t worry Zygi, you know the NFL has your back on this one. Expect groundbreaking as scheduled.

    The State of Minnesota needs to “look further” into their financial plans regarding the stadium more than the Wilfs.

    The Vikings and the NFL had the muscle to push this one through on flimsy state financing, this issue is a small bump in the road.

    Soon the class warfare types will post the same drivel. If Wilf is such a shrewd nefarious businessman, who’s totally experienced in fraud etc. Why didn’t he push for an earlier final signing for the stadium before the possible ruling by the judge? Any flim-flam man knows get it now, get if fast, get out of town.

  68. gtodriver says: Aug 15, 2013 7:09 AM

    “In theory, it could decrease the cost for everyone. That’s because, in theory, it could derail the project.”

    Wrong. If it derails the project, that only means that more money will be spent later.

    The new stadium could have been built for a lot less 5 years ago. If it’s delayed another 5 years it most likely will be 50 – 100% more than the current price.

  69. dabubble says: Aug 15, 2013 7:18 AM

    To paraphrase Greg Jennings, yeah, you Vikings are lower tier…you guys thump your chest like you’ve accomplished something, but you haven’t. You know why? Because you’re the Minnesota Vikings…and you have an owner who looks like he’s about as trustworthy as Jimmy Haslam. But hey, keep poaching ex-Packers in free agency…just shows how inept your front office really is.

    Lets be clear here. This state does not have problems spending taxpayer money on boondoggle projects. ie light rail, bike paths, “green spaces” minor league baseball stadiums. Here we have a private business enterprise that is putting up 480 plus millions of dollars to build a building they will use 8-10 days out of the year. The rest of the time will be used by the state to house High School championships, final four and possibly the Super Bowl. All of which will bring millions of revenue to the City, State. There is no way this deal is not getting done. This this pure posturing.

    First of all, the Packers are the ONLY team that can sell “stock” to finance a stadium, so throwing that in any teams face is stupid.

    Secondly, the deal will go through. This project will double the value of the team virtually over night. Do you think for a second the Wilfs would jeopardize that when they have the capital to finance their share already? They are going to make Bu-cu bucks, and they do not have to do anything shady to do it.

    And Lastly, your pull barn while nostalgic, is most certainly not state of the art…plus its in Green Bay Wisconsin. The very definition of “fly-over country” if there ever was one.

    For those who don’t bother to learn anything about the stadium process — the bill was enacted into law effective 8/1/13. The contract must be completed per the legislation, so absent new legislation (which will never happen), nothing changes. All this does is give politicians the right to grandstand prior to elections and for cheesers to mindlessly chant with such original creative flair the words “LA Vikings”.

In the process, they neglect a good education, (not that you could get one over there anyway), hygiene, discussions much deeper than the weather, and work ethic. Great hunters of deer and plus sized ugly women, the citizens of Wisconsin base their entire feeling of self worth on what happened years ago. I suppose when life in Big Whisky offers so little by way of intelligent stimuli, one must, like the Neanderthals, learn to adapt.

    Packer wife:
    “Honey, these two potatoes remind me of your balls”.

    Packer husband:
    “Why, because they’re just as big?”

    Packer wife:
    “No, because they’re just as dirty”.

    God some of you are stupid. Some just because you want to make fun of the Vikings but you other idiots who think the state is just handing over a stadium to the Vikings.

    They will us it 10 days out of the year. The state will get to use it EVERY OTHER STINKING DAY THEY WANT” and they will get the revenue from those events. How are you guys that ignorant? Seriously.

    Get a clue and an education.

    As if we really needed any more reminders of what a 2nd rate franchise the Vikings really are.

    When the verdict in the fraud case first was reported on PFT, I openly wondered in the comments section whether this would have an impact on the Stadium. My comments were openly mocked by a Viking fan who derided me, saying that it will have no effect.

    I’ll take my apology now.

    I’m sorry you smell.
    I’m sorry you live with your mom.
    I’m sorry your girlfriend is an Xbox.
    I’m sorry you pick your nose.
    I’m sorry you are a packer fan with worthless stock.

    There you go!!!!

    Viking fans who think this is a complete non story know even less about the world than they do about football. There are some seriously stupid people in MN.

    Their stadium now hinges on the results of this independent investigation. If they find nothing, the stadium will be good to go.

    But if they find more dirt……………………….

    there are more viking fans in MN than packer and there are some viking fans in WI and surrounding states, we dont want them to move and they wont did you not read my post from the last time they published about the stadium, the nfl is not interested in putting a team in LA I read it online under the aig and I have a friend from california and she sent me the link awhile ago.
    SO THEY ARE NOT LEAVING FOR LA PACKER FANS, ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE COMPETITION OR SOMETHING.

    Exhibit A of why the entire world hates Minnesota. Google “I hate Minnesota” once and then google “I hate Wisconsin.” Then try not to kill yourself when you find out how the world views the “high class” Minnesota Nice cowards you all are.

    Exhibits A-D of why the entire industrialized world looks at Wisconsin as the birthplace for complete Morons:

    A. “Duh, L.A. Vikings, lol.
    B. “Hey, look at our 13 world chumpionships”
    C. “Cheese, it’s what’s for dinner
    D. “Yeah, I got my shareholders report on the team today”

    What morons!

    No, its a non story because most of the fan base really does not care. If the Vikings leave, they leave.

    There is much more to offer in Minneapolis than just the Vikings. In Green Bay, with out the Pack you have Walmart.

    Sorry, but when I write anything about Packer fans, I try to dumb it down for them so they’ll “get it”. It takes a lot of the “edge” off, but in the end, you’re able to understand.

  115. filthymcnasty1 says: Aug 15, 2013 4:36 PM

    I’m sensing significantly increased levels of hostility and anger from Viking fans, to go along with the rising risk of losing their football team.

    As “insignificant” as it may be? Insignificant? Your Packers “share” is beyond insignificant, it is valueless. It has zero worth. Do you not understand that?

    What competition? Us Western Wisconsiners just want to be able to watch the Packers every Sunday without needing to buy Sunday Ticket. Minnesota has proven they don’t support the Vikings, they have had more home games blacked out than the rest of the league combined & the only reason they’re on TV now is because corporations buy up the remaining tickets for every game except the Packer game when over 50% of the Dome is Packer fans.

    As I understand it, the recent stock sale went to support the team I grew up cheering for, in their quest to add seats to one of the best venues in sports.

    The Knowledge that I helped them do that is what I purchased. I don’t regret it. Do you regret buying that authentic Daunte Culpepper jersey? It’s worthless…

    you guys barley won at home last year against the vikes adrian ran for so many yards, The vikings are a better team than they were last year, we will see how they play the 1st quarter against the bills. I am really looking forward to the games against the packers.

  121. vikingfan1971 says: Aug 16, 2013 12:55 PM

    there have not been any blacked out games in along time, what are you talking about.
