Tice Walks

Just as I was wondering whatever became of that investigation into Mike Tice's alleged ticket scalping, it was reported this afternoon that the NFL has found that Tice did indeed scalp the tickets, but is NOT likely to be suspended. Damn, looks like we're stuck with him for one more year.

In other bummer Vikings news in what's otherwise been a good offseason, Reggie Fowler's bid to buy the team appears to be in trouble, since it doesn't look as though he's got enough assets. So unless Glen Taylor can get his bid back together quickly, it looks like we're stuck with Red McCombs too. At least Paul Tagliabue is in town scouting stadium locations...

The Fowlwer thing will be good news. Taylor is serious about purchasing the team and with Red able to keep Fowler's deposit, he should be relatively sedate for this year.

Taylor really is the best long term option. Fowler is a snake oil salesman to follow a used car salesman. Not a good succession.
