No Interest in NFL in LA, eh?


Yes, there are as many incorrect statements being made about why the Vikings will never move to LA as there are lakes in Minnesota.  

Here is a link to the newly-published answer to those morons you encounter who will constantly tell you there is no real interest in the NFL in LA:

Yes, that's right:   They already have over 105,000 requests for season tickets for a yet-to-be constructed stadium featuring a yet-to-be-determined NFL team.

The real problem has been finding affordable real estate in a neighborhood out here where you won't be mugged and clearing any environmental issues.   Unlike Minnesota, California has a governor who acts to support the future of pro football, and has cleared away the state environmental hoops for the new field.  

If you haven't heard, Ed Roski, the man behind the new California stadium, doesn't need public funding.   He makes Zygi look positively impoverished.

There are other ways of funding stadium improvements in Minnesota than taxing everyone.   If serious consideration isn't given to finding a workable Minnesota solution now, Ed will be more than happy to take the problem of where the Vikings can play (and make money doing it) off your hands, and I'll be laughing as I watch someone try to explain to you on TV why they need to use your tax dollars to tear down the Metrodome.

Better suit up and come in off the bench. 

California: We beat Wisconsin at making cheese.   You're next.  California's economy is in trouble, so we'd be quite happy to steal part of yours.
