None of that is any different from any city anywhere.
The Bucs had to pull teeth and threaten to move to LA to get a new stadium in Tampa.
Penguins had one foot out the door in order to get the new Pitt arena.
Hell, even Steinbrenner threatened to move the Yankees to New Jersey at one point.
All those articles say nothing except that there was a long and tedious negotiation process. Like there is every single time a team tries to get a stadium built by the city/state. The only hard fact is, Minnesota has ponied up somewhere in the neighborhood of a gazillion dollars for it's sports teams.
