Vikings Stadium: NFL Unhappy With Amendment To Bill

The Minnesota Vikings' stadium bill is going through the legislator on Monday, which is sort of goods considering it has actually reached this point. What isn't good news, however, is that the amendments being made to the bill are ruffling some feathers.

The NFL is apparently unhappy with the amendments made earlier Monday, according to the Pioneer Press.

Eric Grubman, the NFL's executive vice president of venture and business operations, cautioned Monday that amending the bill to require the Vikings to pay more or use sports gambling to help finance the state's contribution are deal breakers as far as the NFL is concerned.

"After months of negotiation and compromise and the building of a legislative coalition, albeit a fragile one, any meaningful change of the bill drastically changes the probability of success," Grubman told the Pioneer Press. "You can't change the deal at the last minute."

If the bill makes it through and then the NFL has issues, where do we go?
