Counterpoint: Don’t be so quick to let Vikings go

This letter is a rebuttal to the letter sent in by Robert Bundrock in your Oct. 15 edition.
You asked how many Vikings pay Minnesota taxes. The answer is they all do, including the coaching staff.
How about the visiting teams? They also pay a certain percent in state taxes, which we would lose if the Vikes leave us as you would like. Where would Minnesota recoup that money?
Last but not least, what about all the good the Vikes do for the community that a lot of people are unaware of?
As for me and a lot of people I know, we will do what it takes to keep the Vikes here. As for the profits on a new stadium, Minnesota will get the profits from the stadium, not the owner. It will be owned by Minnesota. — Tom Schmitt, Zimmerman
