NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell met with Minnesota legislative leaders, including Mark Dayton, on Friday.
As reported by the Pioneer Press, Minnesota legislators were put in the hot seat after the visit from the commissioner, insisting that if a new Vikings' stadium was not approved this year, the team would have no other choices but to relocate.
"This is the time to get things done," Goodell said to the Star Tribune. "I've been here several times tone the stadium front over the years. In 2006, they moved forward with a stadium for the Twins and the Gophers. We were asked to move to the next year. And it's now 2012."
