Fulfilling a goal set when he purchased the team two years ago, Vikings owner Zygi Wilf has formed a Board of Advisors and has scheduled its first meeting for Thursday...

The board, made up of 25 local business leaders, will advise Wilf mostly on business and community relations. Its meeting this week coincides with a full ownership retreat that will take place Wednesday.

I would think this would be a help in getting a new stadium.

Yup.
For all the people who were complaining that Wilf wasn't doing enough in the legislature this year to get a new stadium, this should be good news.
Wilf was still working the stadium issue, just on a different front...

Wow...that list looks like the who's who in the Twin Cities area. Hopefully this group of prominent members will be able to spark the extra needed for a new stadium. Ziggy seems like a pretty shrude businessman, we are lucky to have him.

I notice Bob Lurtsema, the voice of Vikings unrest, is on that board and he owns a web site for the Vikes. Why shouldn't Webby be on there? Maybe Webby isn't outspoken enough.
