Zygi Wilf won't say if he would have moved team minus stadium
The Wilf family could make a bid next year to hold the 2017 Super Bowl in their new stadium in Minneapolis.
But Zygi Wilf wouldn’t say if he would have sold the team or moved the franchise had state lawmakers not signed off on a nearly $1 billion package for the new stadium near the Metrodome.
“I don't like Monday morning quarterbacking. Since the question is moot, I have no thoughts about it," Wilf said, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
The family also wouldn’t say how much of the team’s $477 million commitment to the project would come from their personal finances. It’s expected the NFL is kicking in some money.
“I can't say for sure,” Zygi Wilf said. “I don't really get into those numbers.”
Oh, sure. He doesn’t get into the those numbers. Wilf also said he is not certain at this point if the new stadium will have a retractable roof or if it will be a dome. But he does know his club is staying put and that is the good news.
