    Blame the league for that one. Like has been said, any time a fuss gets raised over public funding, all of a sudden rumors about the team moving to LA start popping up. The league has these cities over a barrel, and they know it. Stand up to the NFL and lose your team.

    Re: New VIkings stadium design unveiling

    Congrats Vikings fans that looks awesome. And the best thing about it is it keeps the Vikings in Minn.

    I love the fact they weren't afraid to take some risk and do something not traditional. Look at what happened in NY with the new Yankee's stadium and Metlife. People are not happy with either of those venues. I think Yankee's stadium has been accepted but Metlife never will be, it removed the fans from the game. To me this design appears to keep the fans in the game while also giving the city a excellent piece of architecture.

    For those that are railing that they need to play out doors. Sorry it isn't 1950 anymore, the NFL is finding out just like MLB and the like people will stay home if they are not entertained and warm. GB being the exception, but that is tradition there. Considering the Vikings have played in a dome for so long now, i doubt the fan base would be thrilled to be going back out side. Let alone the fact that has been pointed out about the amount of public dollars pumped into it.

    Now if we could just get Ricketts to accept the fact that Wrigley is over blown, and to build a new completely modern baseball stadium things would be really right with the world.


    A world without yoga pants and Planter's cheese balls, is a world I no longer want to live in.

    Well... I guess I'll stop pining for the return of Viking football. What happened to the retractable roof?

    The $975 million project isn’t cheap though. Bracing for the possibility that electronic gambling might not generate enough revenue for the state’s portion of the bill, Gov. Mark Dayton proposed to more than double the tax on cigarettes. According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Dayton’s plan calls for the tax per pack of cigarettes to go from $1.23 per pack to $2.83 by July 1.
    Whatever it takes to get that fancy clear roof.
