Filed under: Vikings, NFC North, NFC WestWith the Vikings just hours away from the deadline to sell their remaining tickets for tomorrow’s Wild Card game against the Philadelphia Eagles, the organization decided this was the best time to push for a new stadium.

Though the economy is crunching the country, Vikings owner Zygi Wilf decided that what Minnesota needs is a $954 million state-of-the-art stadium for his team. Wilf and his Vice President of Stadium Development, Lester Bagley, think that a new stadium will be a huge economic boost and keep jobs in the Twin Cities.

Because of this, the threats are starting to fly.”It’s reality check time,” Bagley said. “If we want an NFL franchise in this state, we have to resolve the stadium issue. Time is running out.
