    Tentative Agreement Reached For Vikings Stadium

    Here's the latest on the stadium. Arden Hills would be best for fans, but I'm just glad they're most likely not moving out of Minnesota.

    Tentative agreement reached for new Vikings stadium - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

    Skol Vikings, let's win this game,
    Skol Vikings, honor your name,
    Go get that first down,
    Then get a touchdown.
    Rock 'em . . . Sock 'em
    Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!
    Go Vikings, run up the score,
    You'll hear us yell for more. . .
    V-I-K-I-N-G-S
    Skol, Vikings, let's go!

    I am surprised that the NFL didn't chip anything in. Kinda sounds like they were not promoting this deal

    Anyone who remembers the LA Raiders knows.. LA is the worst city you could ever have a professional football team. Unless you consider having your team's logo becoming a internationally known gang symbol good publicity.

    Vikings are staying home where they belong.

    sounds like the state of Minnesota is making some big changes... even as a Miami fan, I can't wait to see the design. I love target field.

    I think the NFL's portion is included as part of the Viking's total.

    Target field is awesome. I can't wait to see the new design either. I've seen some stuff, but I'm not sure how much they'll change it since they have a new location picked out.

    Arden Hills would be better. But I'm glad they're staying. Hopefully its not completely outdoors like Target field tho..

    I agree. A retractable roof sounds good to me.

    I thought the most recent plans were for something similar to Indy's Lucas Oil Stadium. I think indoor is almost a must, because part of what will pay for it is revenue from non-football events. I'd love to see something like a Final Four played up there.

    Its great for you Vikings fans in Iowa, it wont cost you a penny to help build the stadium.

    yeah, works out nice that way. It would suck to have to pay for it, but the NFL has the state over a barrel. If they want to keep their team, they have to pay. Such is the state of Pro sports, today.
