REPORTS HAVE ED SNIDER SNOOPING AROUND THE METRODOME
Published January 12, 1998
Flyers & 76ers Chair Ed Snider met last week with the Vikings' Wheelock Whitney and other members of the committee appointed to sell the team, according to Sid Hartman of the Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE. Whitney "refused to confirm the visit," but Hartman wrote that Snider "did tour the Metrodome and is a serious candidate to buy the club" (STAR TRIBUNE, 1/10). In St. Paul, Charley Walters reported that it's "a decent bet" that Snider "would form a management company to operate the Metrodome if he can acquire the Vikings." Walters: "If Snider, regarded in the professional sports business as a fair and good operator with a 'regular guy' reputation, were to purchase the Vikings, he could manage the Metrodome, as well as its concession service, under a 20- to 30-year lease" (PIONEER PRESS, 1/11).
