08:04 AM ET 12.07 | Los Angeles has figured as a possible escape route for NFL franchises in search of greener stadium pastures, something to which the Vikings aspire. [Spokesman] Lester Bagley said another U.S. city -- other than Los Angeles -- has contacted the team about leaving Minnesota. Bagley, the team's vice president of stadium development and public affairs, made the comment as he answered questions from legislators at Tuesday's hearing at the state Capitol over whether to help publicly fund a new stadium. He was not pressed during the hearing to elaborate, and afterward declined to identify the city. "We would let that city speak for themselves," said Bagley. ... "I don't think it's our place to say who it is."

They figure if they get 2 teams they double their odds of getting a winning team in the city!

Memphis?

Let's hope it's somewhere with a nice marina nearby. Commuting to the team boat parties would just mean more DUIs.

Jacksonville, to replace the Jags when they go to LA.

Or, maybe.... St. Paul????

December 7, 2011  08:30 AM ET

It's San Antonio...

Hell - everyone down here knows San Antonio want to put a team in that ridiculous place they pass off as a football stadium. And... McCombs is still around.

Put out by the owners of the Vikings to up the ante.

Richmond, Virginia!

Hey, I'm from Richmond. We're so cheap we lost the damn AAA baseball team. From Richmond Brave to AA Flying Sqirrels LOL.

I say you are bluffing, you want to go to LA instead of Jacksonville getting the OK. Time to show your cards Minnesota.

If it does move to Richmond, NASCAR and Pro Wrestling better be the halftime entertainment or no one will show up.
