LA Stadium Proposal

I ran across this article in Yahoo Sports about the LA Stadium deal, and it gives me hope that the Vikings may indeed stay in Minnesota.  First of all, there is currently no stadium in LA for a team to move to, and assuming it would take at least 1 year to build, the Vikings can't literally play in LA in 2012, because there wouldn't be a stadium there yet.   So, they will be in MN in 2012, even if they are a suitor for LA.  Secondly, the proposal that is currently being discussed for an NFL stadium in LA, is a bad deal for the NFL, and according to this article, Goodell and the NFL won't accept it unless there are major revisions.  Thirdly, the article repeatedly mentions the Jacksonville Jaguars as the team most likely to move to LA should a plan actually be hashed out between LA and the NFL.

So, while there is a lot of doom and gloom in MN about the Vikings moving to LA, the timing is such, that even if we don't get a vote in the special session this Fall on the Arden Hills site, there is nowhere for them to go but the Metrodome next season (despite Wilf voicing his opposition to that), and I think that bodes well for there being a suitable stadium bill done next year.  We all want to see a stadium bill done sooner rather than later, but after reading this article, I don't think things are as bad as we think they are.
