When the sale of the Vikings was made public, many people questioned -- both publicly and privately -- whether Reggie Fowler had the money to make the purchase. A month later and with NFL owners convening in Hawaii for one of their off-season meetings, the same question is being asked.
It was believed Fowler was going to sell a portion of his stock in an aviation company in order to buy the Vikings. To date, that sale hasn't taken place and, with owners prepared to discuss the matter Monday in Maui, there really isn't any news to report on the sale.
As it stands now, the earliest a final vote could come in is late May when the owners meet again. Until then, Fowler has the chance to get his financial house in order, but, until that happens -- it clearly hasn't happened yet -- the Vikings are running on the assumption that Red McCombs still owns the team.
