    Because when you ask for hundreds of millions of dollars of public dollars it is harder to justify an outdoor stadium that will not be able to be used for the multitude of events (Final Four, Super Bowl) that an indoor facility can.

    That brings up another problem, public funding shouldn't be used.

    You do remember the reason why the Metrodome collapsed in the middle of the season a couple of years ago? Minneapolis blizzards are worse than the Green bay ones. The season goes into January which is the snow central and it's going to happen every year. There were also a couple of blizzards during the season last year. May not be -20 but a crap ton of snow is going to happen.

    I think everyone agrees on that except the market. If the Vikings (or any other team) say that there will be no public funding, that franchise will be in LA in two years. They will gladly pay top dollar for a $1,000,000,000 stadium.

You could say that the owners should have then ponied up and paid for the stadium entirely on their own. However, the chance of that happening was about as low as you could possibly think. Not saying it is right, but that is reality. Also, having spent the past four years in Ames then moving back home to Minnesota, the climate change in a mere three hour drive is quite noticeable.
    Boo ******* hoo. That's a cute sob story

    Minnesota's weather is worse than Iowa's no question. More snow, colder, shorter summers. I think Whatchagonnado is drunk.

    Sorry... Minnesota and the Dakotas have it the worst in the ConUS. It's the wind and it's flat up here.

    You have added some very compelling and logical arguments to this conversation.
