Vikings official: Stadium negotiations ongoing 22 Feb 12

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Vikings vice president Lester Bagley says negotiations for a new stadium are ongoing.

Team owner Zygi Wilf met Tuesday with Gov. Mark Dayton and chief authors of the stadium bill.

Bagley says there are “complicated negotiations” going on between the Vikings, the state and the city of Minneapolis.

He compared the talks to a prenuptial agreement, saying “we have to live with each other for the next 30 years.”

He says the negotiations are focused on putting a new stadium on the current Metrodome site.
