first of all i would hate to see the vikings move. especially to l.a. but if they do move i hope they stay the vikings. there won’t be an expansion team in minnesota if the team leaves so if minnesota tries to keep the vikings name there will be no vikings anymore. the state won’t help build a stadium now, they sure won’t build one later when the cost has doubled plus have to outbid other cities for the right to have an nfl franchise. i see omaha having an expansion team before minnesota gets another one. i am a vikings fan and have been all my life but i am becoming so disillusioned with the state of minnesota and their lack of regard for the franchise. i would be more than happy to donate a sum equal to what the average minnesotan pays in tax increases for the new stadium as i believe many out of state fans would to help keep the vikings in minnesota. somebody should look into setting something like that up. at .1 or .2% increase the amount would be neglegible. not near what i spend to take my family to at least one game a year from wyoming. if the vikings end up moving it will take awhile to get used to it but i will remain a vikings fan for life.
