NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has said several times in the past that the Vikings stadium issue needs a resolution soon. And, according to Judd Zulgad on the Star Tribune’s “Access Vikings” blog, the Commissioner reiterated that stance during a recent interview with Versus.
“We have a franchise that is owned by someone that really cares about the Minneapolis community [and] wants to get something done that is responsible,” Goodell said, according to Zulgad. “We understand the challenges that exist not only in that market but more broadly in how to finance these projects. But it is something that we need to get done because the Vikings belong in Minnesota and I know the ownership feels that and the public leadership feels that.”
Zulgad also pointed out that the team’s lease with the Metrodome ends after the 2011 season.
