Big rumour doing the rounds that the Vikings are going to play at Wembley next season in September.

No chance they will give up a home game V the Packers, Bears or Lions.

Looks like it could be the Steelers game.

Waits to see the steam coming from Formo and Vikes!!!!!

rank 31st of 32 teams in stadium revenue, which makes ditching a home game less troublesome.

Considering the new stadium situation, I don't have a problem with it...besides Vikings have raided Britain before, took what they wanted and left.[grin1]

Well then, at least the Vikings will be able to say they were the 2nd best NFL team in England next season.

I'm with VR.. I'm not upset. I don't pay for season tickets, therefor I'm not the once 'cheated' out of a home game. That said, I also heard that they (Vikings) are willing to play there the next 4 years. Which will be interesting.

I think it's a cool thing. They don't make the revenue, and with 20k extra seats than the Metrodome, Wembley would be a nice venue for the organization to recoup some monies. Also, I personally know at least 2 Viking fans that are jacked out of their minds about this information. And I'm more than happy for them, they deserve to see the Vikings play there.. They've made more than one trip to MPLS to see the Vikes.

Also, giving the Vikings 4 games in London will do good for their global brand.

Doesn't look like that is on option for the Vikings. Personally I think that 4 years in a row with a new stadium coming online would be dumb idea.
And I for one would be way against that.

According to Minnesota House Bill HF 2958, the Vikings can only play 3 home games off of US soil in the next 15 years.

Final Conference Bill on Vikings

Beginning at line 22.23


I'd say send the Packers next, but that would set Anglo/American relations back 200 years, and we need all the allies that we can get.
Cheeseheads in Britain?.......hillbillies in Trafalgar Square?.......dumbass's at Wembley is what you would have.[grin1]

I thought that bill didn't go into effect until after the new stadium opened (or construction started on). But, I did see that they are willing to play one game a year in London until the new stadium opened.

You may be correct there as the timeline for the new stadium completion is still a little fuzzy.

Here is the latest that I found. Construction start 3rd Qtr of 2013 with substantial completion 2nd Qtr of 2016....play in 2016 season?

uffda udfa (2h) : It's just fine.
musccy (2h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (3h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (4h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (4h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (4h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (5h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (5h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (5h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (9h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (9h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (9h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (9h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (10h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (11h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (11h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (11h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (12h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (12h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (13h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (13h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (13h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (13h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (14h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (14h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (14h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (14h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (14h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (16h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (20h) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Anyone ever used their dishwasher to make their Thanksgiving turkey?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite Ronnie Milsap song? Smokey Mountain Rain or Any Day Now?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite GM candidate... Wolf or Gutekunst?
