vike daddy Posted February 20 Share Posted February 20 2 hours ago, SemperFeist said: Billy Joe “Red” McCombs originally made his money in car sales. He owned the San Antonio Spurs and the Denver Nuggets before buying the Vikings in 1998 for $250 million. Under his ownership, the Vikings went to two NFC Championship games. McCombs fired Green during the 2001 season, replacing him with Mike Tice — and then later giving Tice the permanent position. McCombs eventually became exasperated by the inability to get a new stadium built in Minnesota. He sold the Vikings to Zygi and Mark Wilf in 2005, for $600 million. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2023/02/20/former-vikings-owner-red-mccombs-dies-at-95/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
