    I have a bad feeling the Vikes are headed to LA.

    NFL's gotta keep the cities in check by showing them that they can move teams if you don't straighten up and fly right.

    He's going to announce the indefinite suspension of the Minnesota legislature and a $50,000 fine. Rog's way or the highway.

    It's a seesaw with how much the owners should pay and how much the taxpayers should spend.

    I hate visiting some states and they ding you with car rental, hotels, restaurant taxes for their stadium. I'm like WTF, I am an out of towner, I shouldn't have to pay for your stadium!

    They should lose the franchise for not being able to stream video with sound.

    Re: Roger Goodell Vikings Press Conference

    I am die hard Vikings fan, I hope they stay. I gotta bad feeling that they are going to leave because I heard early in the year that the state of Minnesota will not pay for a stadium sine the twins just got a new one. I also heard L.A. is very interested in the Vikings.

    You're only missing politician-speak. "It's an important topic and we're all working hard to come up with the best possible solution." blah blah blah.

    Re: Roger Goodell Vikings Press Conference

    If everything falls through with the Arden Hills site, I still expect them to eventually end up in Hennepin Co. That's the site they were in negotiations with and asked to match the Ramsey offer. Hennepin County was unwilling to match, so they've moved on. As a last-gast, I'm guessing they will end up there. Target will come forward as a major sponsor and have a large development between the new Target Stadium and Target Field. I've heard that from someone else and it makes sense. That deal wouldn't require state involvement, and would keep them in MN.

    I'm sure Wilf would like Arden Hills better, because then he can develop the surrounding land as opposed to Hennepin Co/Target, but I think in the end he would fold to that deal to keep the team in MN.

    If you are talking about the area between Target Field and the site near the basilica (at or near the farmers market) keep in mind that between (just west of Target Field) is the HERC - translation: garbage incinerator. That still may be an issue to large scale entertainment development further west of Target Field. Also the Catholic Church is hugely opposed to this development that close to the basilica. They will fight it at every turn. That was why Minneapolis ended up going with the Metrodome site.
