We've hashed over the issue of the Vikings and a new stadium a lot, but I came across this article which seems to have a bit more hard info on what's happening on the Los Angeles side of the question.
One of the issues this answers is where the Vikings are on the 'hit list'. It's with some relief to find out that the Jags and the Bills are the prime targets, but that doesn't mean that the Vikings are out of the question. As we thought, the primary issue is whether or not the team can fill it's venue and make it's share of the revenues. Both the Jags and the Bills owners claim that they have no intention of moving, but at the end of the day, we know that money talks loudest.
Here's the money-shot;
Semcken said Majestic won’t approach the 49ers, Chargers or Vikings as long as they are seeking stadium plans of their own. He said it would not be fair to interfere with their efforts to remain in their home markets.
I think it's nice that they want to be 'fair' about it, but I wouldn't count on that holding if the Vikings don't get a stadium deal knocked out soon. Based on the expiration of the existing lease and the lead time to build a new stadium, Minnesota is already in an untenable position where interim solutions will be necessary, which complicates any resolution.
Minnesotans need to put the pressure on their reps to make them seek a deal to ensure the Vikings stay out of the move picture, this is no time to be timid or to assume that the other guy will take care of business for you.
