Minnesota Vikings Stadium: Zygi Wilf Meets With Los Angeles Stadium Developers

Well, this is interesting.

Apparently Zygi Wilf and company have met with AEG, the company that has proposed the new (hypothetical) football stadium in Los Angeles. Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press mentioned the meeting briefly in his "Don't Print That" section of his most recent column, and the meeting was confirmed by the Vikings earlier today.

Now, the mention of "Los Angeles" and "Vikings" in concurrence with one another should be enough to make Viking fans leery, but just how leery depends largely upon your level of pessimism/optimism and/or who you choose to believe.

If you believe the Vikings, they were simply meeting with the folks from AEG to sort of "pick their brains" over their concept for "L.A. Live," the $2.5 billion entertainment complex that is going to include that Los Angeles stadium, and definitely not about moving the team to Los Angeles.

Folks like Mike Florio at Pro Football Talk, on the other hand, see this as a sign that the odds of the Vikings moving to Los Angeles after their lease with the Metrodome expires after this season are increasing.

Personally, I still think that the Arden Hills deal is going to get done here at some point, and all of this talk of Los Angeles is going to end up looking really silly eventually, but for now people will continue to speculate in both the positive and the negative until something concrete happens.
