Vikings avoid telling what would happen without stadium lease
ST. PAUL -- A Minnesota Vikings vice president did not specifically say today what would happen if state leaders fail to approve a new stadium deal before the team's Metrodome lease expires after this football stadium.
Sen. Barb Goodwin, DFL-Columbia Heights, asked Lester Bagley if he was saying the Vikings would leave Minnesota after stadium talks fail.
"Not at all," Bagley said. "What we are just saying that we won't have a lease."
