You Can Cross the Minnesota Vikings Off the List of Teams Who Could Move to Los Angeles

After weeks of wrangling and veiled threats about the potential for a move, the Minnesota Legislature has finally reached a compromise Stadium Funding Bill that will no doubt now be signed by Governor Mark Dayton, who has been a staunch supporter of getting a new stadium throughout the process. The new bill includes $50 million of additional funds that the Vikings agreed to contribute (The house bill from a few days ago sought an additional $105 million contribution). It was passed in the House early in the morning hours, and then passed by a 36-30 vote in the Minnesota Senate.

This outcome means that the Vikings, who have been in Minnesota since their inception in 1961, will remain in the North. Those hoping to return a football team to Los Angeles will now turn their sights to other teams in need of a new stadium agreement.
