The Vikings will move if they don't get a new stadium soon. That's how we need to interpret Friday's visit from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Art Rooney II, head of the league's stadium committee.
Goodell, Rooney and Vikings owner Zygi Wilf didn't say that. They're just hoping that common sense finally pays a visit to Minnesota and its Land of 10,000 Procrastinating Politicians.
It's not a threat. It's reality.
When read between the lines, Friday's visit was a firm and possibly final notice that serious consequences could result if this problem is kicked any farther down the road than the end of the current legislative session.
