According to Vikings Update, Glen Taylor is willing to pay $600 million for the Vikings. This is Red's asking price. VERY good news! ;-D

To be honest, I like Fowler's group better.

This is still great news, should Fowler not be able to get enough money.

Oh, I am a huge fan of Glen Taylor. He does a great job as the T'wolves owner, and isn't afraid to open the checkbook. He brought in Cassell, Spreewell, and Madsen all in one year for the T'Wolves. He would be great for the Vikes.

And what did that bring to the T'Wolves? A sub .500 record...

Taylor would do magic for a stadium or at least a renovation.

Uh, I dunno if you were paying attention last year, but the Wolves went to the Western Conference Finals last year(when Taylor brought in all those guys).

Give me Fowler or give me death!

Well, maybe not that far, but it's about time a minority owner makes a stand in the NFL. And, he should have some form of tie to Minnesota with his "associates" making him my ideal candidate.

Well, looks like you got your way B4P:

Looks to be a group ownership. Taylor says that Fowler will have a tough time getting an approval though. But hey, as long as they stay in Minnesota, I'm happy. I'd really like Taylor to own the team though.

I don't know who to thank. This is exactly how I wanted this to turn out. Fowler has the team, but if something goes wrong, Taylor will be our owner.
