When Reggie Fowler was introduced to the local sports media representatives Monday, he was accompanied by a biographical document which, upon further review, contained some serious alterations of fact.
Fowler addressed those questions Friday in a series of interviews he did with print and broadcast media, saying that he doesn't want to be viewed as a mystery to Minnesotans.
Fowler, who joked he had "taken the heat off of Randy Moss," repeated his desire to own the Vikings and understands that he will be scrutinized heavily -- whether he wants to or not or whether the criticism is warranted.
While he still didn't give a lot of information about his other partners in the purchase, Fowler made one point very clear -- he wants to own the Vikings and, by all accounts, wants to keep them here. For Vikings fans, that has be viewed as good news, since Red McCombs had essentially given up on finding a new stadium deal. Now if we can get beyond resume evaluation and start working on free agency, everything should be O.K. in Vikings nation.
Fowler Clears the Air
