A Minnesota Vikings executive says state lawmakers could sink a stadium deal by making it too hard on the club.

LET IT BEGIN

Giants-Cowboys starts the madness, but that's just the beginning. 2012 NFL season schedule.

Team vice president Lester Bagley made the comments in an interview on 1500 ESPN on Tuesday as the Senate prepared to vote on a stadium financing proposal.

A day earlier, House members approved a stadium deal but added $105 million to the team's share.

Bagley says stadium opponents will do all they can to derail the deal.

He points to a Twins ballpark bill that cleared the Legislature in 2002, only to fall apart. It took the team another four years to win legislative support for a workable bill.
