    Vikings Stadium Deal Possibly Dead

    Listening to KFAN and they're saying the funding source attached to the bill, a racetrack/casino, is going to kill the bill. The words I just heard are, "I will be shocked if this moves forward."

    Screwed them for the Dodgers, took the Lakers, and ready to snag the Viqueens. LA is just rude to the Twin Cities on the sports scene

    I'd say this is the last chance to keep the Viks in Minnesota. If this does not pass they will leave.

    I guess this is good news for Gopher fans though.

    You are not a Minnesota Vikings fan.

    This. If you can switch from being a "Vikings fan" to a Packers fan, you're not a true Vikings fan. At all.

    The "racino" portion of the bill would add slots to the two state racetracks, and would help fund the project.

    This has been added to the funding proposal in addition to "pull-tabs", not in lieu of pull-tabs. It sounds like there are a number of different groups for whom this is a deal breaker.

    If the Vikings do move will they switch up the divisions?

    Too much power in the TCs lies outside the city center. They will never get a deal done up there.

    Maybe they should ask Best Buy for money... I heard they are doing awesome right now.
