NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue said Wednesday that Vikings coach Mike Tice is not likely to receive a suspension from the league for his role in reselling for profit Super Bowl tickets that were issued for his personal use.
Tagliabue was in Anoka County north of the Twin Cities Wednesday meeting with local government officials to obtain more information on the government and team entities' hopes for a new Vikings stadium.
When asked about the NFL's investigation into Tice and running backs coach Dean Dalton scalping Super Bowl tickets, Tagliabue said "there may be multiple fines," but said he expected the discipline would stop short of suspension.
Tagliabue also said the league's investigation found that no other teams were in violation of the league's policy against team employees scalping their Super Bowl tickets issued for personal use.
Tagliabue said a timeline for handing down his discipline would depend on his travel schedule over the coming weeks.
