I would have zero problem with Minnesota taxpayers (or whomever) paying for a new Viking stadium if the paying citizens simultaneously acquired ownership of the team. For my 2 cents worth, I've always believed that whomever owns the stadium should own the team. No ifs, buts, or maybes about it. As a corollary, you could take the "Minnesota" off the Vikings right now. Call 'em the "Zygi Vikings" or whatever. Again JMHO, but stadium/team joint ownership really should be an NFL league rule.
