    It's going to make a great home for the Vikings in 3 years.

    That has about as much chance of happening as the Big Ten being the new home for UT...

    I'm assuming that they are going to have signs up that say, "Free Dirt Available"

    It will be the home of the JAGS they are building it

    It will happen




    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    Yeah the Jags are a good call on moving there. Aren't they pretty much blacked out on Jax TV all the time because no one goes to the games?

    Well you never know. The Minnesota state legislature all ready put the kibosh on financing for a new stadium for the Vikings, while the Gophers and Twins have brand new facilities. The Metrodome is one of the worst stadiums in the country, and the teams lease expires after the 2011 season (which might not be played anyway).

    So yeah, it could happen.

    Re: New Los Angeles Football Stadium

    It would be a shame if the Vikings left, but I would not be surprised. The gophers really hosed them when they decided to build their own Stadium, but I can't blame them. The Vikings are really in a tough situation now, I sure hope they don't leave.

    I think Jacksonville is most likely candidate.

    Re: New Los Angeles Football Stadium

    I agree that Jacksonville or Carolina makes more sense to move then Minnesota, but I do know that Minnesota wants a new stadium bad. I really don't want the Vikings to move... I will not cheer for a team from LA

    UM football would become the big dog in town if the Vikings left. All of a sudden their program could have a lot more $$.

    Re: New Los Angeles Football Stadium

    As a Vikings fan living in LA I fear for the possibilities. Its not like the precedent has not already been set (Lakers anyone?) or the fact that L.A. seemingly loves to poach professional sports fanchises from other cities. (Lakers, Dodgers)

    Besides that I fear that the a new NFL team would be subject to the fickleness of the LA fan and the stadium would be half empty for the 1st and 4th quarters.

    Re: New Los Angeles Football Stadium

    Minny should have built one stadium for both the Vikings and Gophers. I know the Gophers wanted an on campus venue. However beggars can't be choosers. Also, their campus is downtown and farily close to the Metrodome site. You'd think they would be able to find a solution that worked for both teams (especially if the alternative was not getting a new stadium).

    Their dominance pretty much ended at the same time the Vikings arrived. I'm sure there are a variety of reason the Gophers fell from elite status, but I'd guess the arrival of a new team to take some of their support was one of them.
