Power Rankings: Minnesota Vikings’ Zygi Wilf named a top half owner in the NFL

In any business, success or failure tends to trickle down from the top. Very rarely does having someone incompetent in the ultimate position of power not lead to disastrous results throughout the organization.

Zygi Wilf is a villain

This was the front page image at the Star Tribune yesterday. Look how terrified Governor Mike Dayton looks. Look how gleeful Zygi Wilf looks. The same event is engendering these disparate reactions from two different people. This isn’t something that Mark Dayton wants to do, but Wilf is exuberant that it is happening.

The new Vikings stadium has been in the news a lot recently, largely because the guy who's fronting about 2% of the bill for it, the multi-millionaire team owner Zygi Wilf, is apparently a liar, cheat, and swindler. At least he's not a dirt burglar! Although, then Adrian Peterson and him would probably be homeys. No, the stadium has had questions about its financing from...
