VIKES OWNERS MEET, EXPRESS FRUSTRATION OVER STADIUM ISSUE
Published November 5, 1997
The Vikings' ownership group met during their monthly Board of Dir meeting yesterday, but afterward team President Roger Headrick expressed only "his frustration with his inability to present the team's case for a new stadium" to Gov. Arne Carlson, according to Don Banks of the Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE. Headrick, who has said that the team needs a new stadium and that renovations to the Metrodome "won't work," requested a meeting with Carlson late last week, but the Governor "reiterated" that the Vikings' needs are "secondary" until the Twins stadium talks are completed (STAR TRIBUNE, 11/5). In St. Paul, Jeff Seidel reports that Philip Maas, one of the Vikings' 10 principal owners, said the board agreed that Headrick would be the team's only representative to the media (ST. PAUL STAR TRIBUNE, 11/5).
