    What do you mean to "Stay"? They better not be leaving Minnesota

    I don't think tax payers should be paying for this.

    What about the tax that was put in place to build the Metrodome? It's my understanding that we still pay that tax. If so, repeal that tax and then we can talk.

    Pretty sure at this point the Jaguars will move before the Vikings.

    Re: Will Vikings get the 700 million needed to stay?

    I'm not sure what I would do?

    It would be tough to root for the LA or San Antonio Vikings. I couldn't do it, I'm too old.

    I would probably give up on Pro Football and just be a casual Pro Football Fan without a Favorite Team.

    no. They're the Minnesota Vikings and I don't see myself cheering for them anywhere else but Minnesota. My second favorite team would be the Chiefs (especially now that there's a possibility that I'll be moving to KC) but I don't know if I can deal with that kind of frustration. I deal with it enough on the college level.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Of course they will move if nothing is done.
    There is no way a sane owner would continue to play in that piece of **** dome when the rest of the NFL plays in beautiful stadiums with tons of luxury boxes for revenue.
    The Vikings have already announced they will not renew their Metrodome lease. Doesn't the current one run for just two more years?

    Re: Will Vikings get the 700 million needed to stay?

    Tax payers are paying for it either way:

    Give them the stadium and get their revenue for the next 30 years and gain tax benefits from the Vikings for the state or

    Don't give them the stadium, the state loses that revenue, they raise taxes.

    Vikings are done in Minnesota after 2010 IMO.
