Details Of Vikings Stadium Bill Not Likely To Be Finalized Today
Published June 17, 2011
The NFL "will not permit the Vikings to put an income tax surcharge on the salaries of NFL players as part of the money needed" to build a stadium. So there "won't be any money to pay for the stadium coming from taxes on pro athletes who are members of a visiting team." The league refused to comment on the matter (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 6/17).
