THE SUM OF FOUR PARTS: TAGLIABUE TO MEET WITH VIKES OWNERS
Published March 10, 1998
The Vikings "saga" took an "unexpected turn Monday with news NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue will receive some further but final testimony Wednesday morning from four of the team's co-owners," according to Don Banks of the Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE. Tagliabue, who will meet with John Skoglund, Wheelock Whitney, James Jundt and N. Bud Grossman, has assured all parties that he is prepared to "promptly issue his decision" after Wednesday's hearing (STAR TRIBUNE, 3/10). In St. Paul, Jeff Seidel writes that "some believe Tagliabue has decided [Vikings President Roger] Headrick has the right to match [Tom] Clancy's offer but will give the owners one last chance to explain their stance," while others believe Tagliabue "wants to hear the owners explain their mindset and the partnership agreement before deciding in their favor" (PIONEER PRESS, 3/10).
