For further proof that the Minnesota Vikings have one helluva awesome owner, look no further than this:
In short, Zygi Wilf has commited to keeping the jobs as well as the salaries of the Minnesota Viking employees. Now, whether the article is simply referencing FO and coaching jobs, or if in fact he's also securing the fine, hard working people at the stadium itself, I'm not sure. But regardless, it says a lot that Wilf, who owns one of the least productive (financially-wise) teams in the league, and is also facing a lot of questions on just what kind of check he'll be cutting to get a new stadium, is still going to make sure that the various employees of the Minnesota Vikings keep their paychecks despite a lockout. Leslie Frazier seemed particularly glowing in his response to that.
SKOL Vikings, and SKOL Zygi Wilf, for doing the right thing. If you want hope for the future of the team, just think about this: it all starts from the top. While an owner may often at times be overshadowed by coaches, players, etc., a winning team requires solid ownership. And while Wilf could be going the route of suing elderly grandmas who are unemployed and diehard, lifelong fans of the team- no, he's going to instead ensure that he does right by his staff and his employees. That, if nothing else, should give us great hope.
