The Strib is reporting today that Vikings owner Zygi Wilf has reversed the decision to charge fans a training camp entrance fee, and instead (are you sitting down?) has agreed to cover the $100,000 revenue shortage that originally caused Greater Mankato Training Camp LLC to institute the ticket plan. Fans are happy and opposing team scouts are once again restricted from practices. Nice to see a team owner's wallet with an out-going function. I think those cost extra, but well worth it.
UPDATE: There's been no greater metaphor for the Vikings' recent lackluster seasons than that dilapidated wooden Viking ship crumbling before our eyes in front of Winter Park. Entering the Wilf era, that too is being restored to its former glory.
