From today’s Access Vikings: The L.A. real estate developers who want to build a stadium in Industry, CA and lure the Vikings there have been in periodic contact with the team, admits Viking VP of public affairs and stadium development Lester Bagley. But, says Bagley, “I haven’t heard anything from them within the last few weeks. But we’ve basically said we’re not ready to talk to you. We’ve got issues to resolve here. We’ve still got time. Our product is ready to go. If we get some collaboration, we don’t have to worry about it.” The Vikings’ Metrodome lease expires after 2011 – so they’ve still got time to convince the legislature that building a replacement for the decrepit and revenue-limiting Metrodome is worth spending precious taxpayer money on. But they don’t have forever.
