    Re: Vikings Stadium Video

    I am a Bears fan but also follow and somewhat pull for the Vikings since my wife is a Vikings fan and it appears that my 5 year old son is going to be a Vikings fan as well. But I really hope that they can get a new facility up there soon. I enjoy taking my son to Vikings games when I can, a quick drive up I-35 for noon games and we are back home by 8 at the latest. Really don't want to see them leave for LA.

    I also view it as the closest option for us to have a super bowl or final 4 in the area. Would love to be able to go three hours north and hang out for the day on super bowl Sunday or final 4 weekend, maybe even get tickets for the events (likely not an option for super bowl).

    The Metrodome hasn't attracted a big event in a long time and you would hope that the powers that be realize that and if they want to remain an option for the big sporting events and the revenue to the area that it brings then they need a new stadium.

    Because of there has been any indication by the Minnesota state government to help by any means. They just denied a request just recently.

    And if anyone has any faith in the Minnesota state government, then you have to be naive.

    Agreed, I truly think something will get built.

    Way too much support for that team statewide to ever let them leave. Something will get ironed out, it's just a matter of when, what will be built, and where.

    Nobody said anything about a near term govt solution. The Metrodome and all the land was offered up for sale for $1.

    Deal with the dome for a couple years, find some additonal funding, play at the new Gophers stadium during work, problem solved.

    LA should get a team from San Diego, Jacksonville, Carolina, or even Buffalo that they can eventually run out of town.

    For the record I am a Bears fan and really can't stand the Vikings, it just seems to me that moving that team makes little sense.

    I guess reading is your strong suit, seeing as right under my avatar it says "Bears" for my NFL team.

    Please show me anything that would lead me to believe that a new stadium will be built in the next few years besides just viking fans begging for one.

    Form what I heard last the government wanted to pay for it with gambling/casino stuff instead of taxpayer money. So the money would just come from stupid people instead of all of the taxpayers.
