Vikings owner Zygi Wilf says he is still optimistic about bringing a new stadium to Minnesota.

Wilf told reporters on Monday from the owners meeting in New Orleans that they are "working very hard with everybody in Minnesota (at the Capitol) to get the stadium thing worked through."

"We realize that it's an important asset to the community and that it's to everyone's interest to make sure that we get a stadium that would serve not just football but all the other events the Metrodome served proudly for the last 30 years," he added.

The Vikings' lease at the Metrodome, which had its roof collapse after a storm last December, is up after the 2011 season. The Vikings had to play two home games outside the Metrodome because of the damage to the roof, which is being replaced.

"What's most important right now is we don't want (the labor unrest) to detract us from getting our home and making sure that the stadium issues get resolved," Wilf said.
