Running back Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings, will not play until his legal issues are resolved. Peterson is facing a child abuse charge for causing bodily injuries to his son. Early this week, the team said that Peterson would practice and play in the game this week. A statement today will require him to "remain away from all team activities." The owners Zygi and Mark Wilf believe that this resolution is the best for the team and Peterson.
Vikings stadium is corporate welfare. -Minnesotans love the Vikings. That’s a fact. However, the Vikings franchise is owned by a billionaire from New Jersey — one Zygmunt “Zygi” Wilf. Wilf’s net worth is between $310 million, as reported by Sports Illustrated, and $1.3 billion, according to the Democratic Underground.com website. - - BrainerdDispatch 04/09/12
Without stadium, Vikings could move. - While Zygi and Mark Wilf are more directly involved in management of the team, the other partners are investors who I'm sure weren't happy when recently there was a call for an additional $20 million investment, with each partner's payment based on his percentage of ownership.-by Sid Hartman, Star Tribune - 04/15/12
