The Minnesota Vikings and Wells Fargo have reached a preliminary agreement to resolve a conflict surrounding a development near the team's new stadium.
Construction isn't even underway on a new Minnesota Vikings football stadium, but a hard push is on by the team and its landlord to lure a Super Bowl, college football championship game and Final Four basketball tournament.
Those three cities were selected from a pool of six at the owners' meetings Tuesday. Should Lucas Oil Stadium in Indy get the game, it would be the first cold-weather stadium to host two Super Bowls.
The 2018 Super Bowl could be headed back to a recent host city. Or to one that hasn't staged the game in more than two decades.
A judge in New Jersey on Monday ordered Minnesota Vikings owners Zygi and Mark Wilf and their cousin Leonard Wilf to pay $84.5 million to two former business partners who she previously ruled they had defrauded in a 1980s real estate deal.
Minnesota Vikings owners Zygi and Mark Wilf should have to pay a large portion of the team's share of a new football stadium from their own pockets instead of using money made from fees charged to season ticket holders, Gov. Mark Dayton wrote Monday in a letter to the government authority supervising its construction.
The Minnesota Vikings say a civil lawsuit against some members of their ownership group will not affect the team's finances or plans for a new stadium.
Next season will be the Minnesota Vikings' last in the 31-year-old Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, and fans of the purple and gold can look forward to blue lips and red cheeks as they shiver through two seasons of old-school outdoor football.

Whoa, that was a close one.
Now that the Minnesota Vikings will get their new stadium, the worrying can begin over a gambling expansion designed to pay the state's share of the $975 million project.
After a plan to build the Minnesota Vikings a new home cleared its final hurdle Thursday in the state Senate, the team executive who spent much of the past decade lobbying for the nearly $1 billion stadium could hardly contain himself.
The Minnesota Vikings' pursuit of a $975 million stadium went to the floor of the state Senate on Thursday and even opponents predicted it would clear its final hurdle.
The Minnesota Vikings' hopes of a new stadium are one affirmative vote away from becoming reality.
Minnesota lawmakers working out the final version of a bill for a new Vikings stadium Wednesday raised the amount the team would pay by $50 million, a calculated move that could soon put the team in the new facility it has long coveted.
Bagley said that Mortenson would help the Vikings build cost estimates for potentially including a retractable roof, wall or window, or some combination of those three.
Vikings vice president Lester Bagley said Friday that the team plans to play at the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium during the 2014 and 2015 seasons, while the team's new stadium gets built at the Metrodome site in downtown Minneapolis.
