The Vikings may be getting a new building now but it sure did not happen without threatening to leave and a fight. Google it.
while that does make some sense in theory, I would draw your attention to nashville and the difference in treatment of the titans and preds. titans have been, and continue to be, given the world, whereas preds are AGAIN being criticized and held up over their lease - as just one example. so, nope, not buying the "they were mean to the vikings so they'll be mean to the wild" argument.
or you could ask a chicagoite about the different treatment of the cubs and sox, let along pulling the other franchises in....
