Former Vikings' Owner and Stadium Agitator Facing Tax Fraud Charges

If nothing else, former Minnesota Vikings' owner Red McCombs came off as an oily con man.  His current troubles only reinforce this impression.  For most Vikings' fans, McCombs' legacy will be his trade of Randy Moss to the Oakland Raiders, a move solely made to avoid paying Moss' bonus.  Lost, unfortunately, will be the fact that McCombs set the bar so low for his predecessors that a $1 billion stadium appeared to many to be a reasonable quid pro quo for something less obnoxious than Red running the Vikings.
