Good news for Vikings fans. You aren't getting your team hijacked from you thanks to this stadium deal:


    The Minnesota Vikings have reached a preliminary agreement with Minneapolis and the state of Minnesota on a new stadium, according to a report in the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

    The report, citing multiple sources who spoke Friday on condition of anonymity, said the sides agreed on the division of costs for a $975 million stadium on a site at or near the Metrodome, the Vikings' home since 1982.

    Sources told the Star Tribune the city would pay $150 million in construction costs and roughly $180 million in operating costs over the next 30 years, while the state would pay $398 million and the Vikings would pay $427 million.

    The sources said other details, including cost overruns, still had to be ironed out, but that an announcement was expected next week.


Of course, that's a LOT of taxpayer money going to this stadium. No one ever said keeping you team around would be cheap.

I couldn't decide whether to use an NCAA logo, or the Miami Dolphins logo. ESPN (among others) is reporting that Nick Saban has taken the job as the new head coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide.
