Dayton, Bagley And Zellers Weigh In On Vikings Stadium

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — There’s a lot of drama surrounding a potential Vikings stadium — and the future of Minnesota’s NFL team.

On Friday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell flew in to meet privately with Gov. Mark Dayton about the stalled stadium bill.

Later, a Minnesota Senate Panel approved the plan, 8-6.

The committee set aside the Arden Hills plan for now, and pushed the downtown stadium site forward.

Behind closed doors, Goodell told the Governor — it’s now or never and with no stadium, there will be no Minnesota Vikings.

Joining us this morning to talk about the stadium is Gov. Dayton, Vikings Vice President of Public Affairs and Stadium Development Lester Bagley and House Speaker Kurt Zellers. Watch their interviews below.
