Vikings weigh in on Strib saga


Last fall, amid the growing credit crunch, the Vikings backed out of a $45 million deal to buy several blocks of land from the Star Tribune near the Metrodome as part of the team's plan to build a new stadium at the site.

Now that the Strib is reportedly on very thin ice financially, is the team looking to return to the table?

"We believe that the property will be part of an eventual stadium development package or project regardless of who owns it," said Lester Bagley, the team's veep for public affairs. When pressed, he added the following: "I don't want to comment about what's going on there. We don't really know either."
