|Vikings | No changes coming|
Tue, 22 Oct 2013 10:03:51 -0700
Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf said no changes are imminent after the team's embarrassing Week 7 loss to the New York Giants Monday, Oct. 21. "I'm sticking with my team. That's our team. We're going to stick with it."
Fantasy Tip: Josh Freeman looked downright awful in this one, and he clearly wasn't on the same page with his receivers all night. In his defense, he hasn't had much time to learn the offense. Until that improves, Adrian Peterson and the rest of the offense is in trouble.

Judd Zulgad, of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, reports Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf said he is not in favor of changing the overtime rules. "I like to stick to the tradition of the game and beyond that I think from the standpoint of fairness and safety and, most important, consistency, to have a system that goes from the regular season to the postseason, you want to have the same rules," Wilf said. Wilf has an idea about a possible change but has not appoached the league with the idea. Wilf believes the team that wins the coin toss should start at its own 20-yard line, which would elimiate the kickoff.

|Vikings | Team owner issues capital call|
Thu, 24 Apr 2008 10:40:39 -0700
Kevin Seifert, of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, reports Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf issued a capital call for just under $20 million to his investment partners, according to people with knowledge of the situation. Without the capital call, the team would not have been able to pay the $16.25 million DL Jared Allen will earn this season. Allen's contract in 2009 will most likely result in a similar request next year. If that happens, it will be the team's fourth capital call in four years.
