Vikings: New Metrodome Stadium Has Hidden Costs

Stadiums are just like cell phone bills!  Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak did say the city is aware of the concern and is taking it into consideration.  The soap opera, 'As The Stadium Turns' continues.

 
The Minnesota Vikings said Tuesday that building a new stadium at the Metrodome, when including the costs of playing three seasons at the University of Minnesota during construction, would add $67 million to the project’s cost.

Vikings May Release Quarterback McNabb

According to Brian Hall of FSNorth, Donovan McNabb asked the MN Vikings to release him, of which, they are considering.  With Jay Cutler's fractured thumb, will he go to play for his "home" team, the Chicago Bears?

No worries for MN Viking's fans, Christian Ponder has started the last five games and may just be what the team has been searching for.  Do you agree?

Ramsey County Board Approves Land Deal In Arden Hills For Vikings Stadium

It seems like it's always one step forward and two steps back when it comes to a new Minnesota Vikings stadium.  For people who wish the Minnesota Vikings would stay in Minnesota, is this a good sign or is it just more smoke in hopes of moving a stadium plan forward?
Ramsey County Board members on Tuesday unanimously approved a $28.5 million purchase of 430 acres in Arden Hills with the goal of using it for a Minnesota Vikings stadium if the state finds the money to pay for it.

Report: Christian Ponder Named Vikings Starter For Sunday

Not exactly a shock, I would have been more shocked if McNabb was named the starter.  The Vikings have nothing to lose and they need to see if Ponder can play as they look to their future.  What better way to get introduced to the league than by playing the Super Bowl champs.  What do you think, is Ponder the future?

Adrian Peterson Powers Vikings To 1st Win

The Vikings are well on their way to a 12-4 record this season, right?

Adrian Peterson rammed his way into the end zone to make Minnesota's early lead even larger, lowering his shoulder to finish the run as if to pour four weeks of frustration out on his unsuccessful tackler.

Are The Vikings Done In Minnesota?

If you were to use the magic 8 ball it would say, "All signs point to yes".

 

According to ProFootballTalk.com, the Vikings have issued a four page statement with the last sentence being, “This solution must be finalized in the 2011 session.”

 

I think owner Zigi Wilf did the best he could with Favre mach 1. That was supposed to be the Super Bowl team that would make all of Minnesota force the lawmakers to give them a new stadium.

Vikings One Step Closer To Leaving As Legislators Call For Vote On Stadium?

No stadium, no more Minnesota Vikings.  Even if you aren't a sports fan, if you live in Minnesota you must realize the millions of dollars in revenue the state will lose if they leave.  Meanwhile the average citizen would feel zero impact in regards to the cost to build it.   The Minnesota Twins got a stadium with out a vote and it has rejuvenated the area and has been a boon for area businesses and the state.  If Minnesota starts to lose professional sports franchises, then Minnesota becomes Iowa -- only colder.

 
The state's top two legislative leaders now want local voters to have a say in a new Minnesota Vikings stadium project, a move that potentially creates a major obstacle for the plan.

Will Brett Farve Return?

Not only are we sitting on the edge of our stadium seats, well....if we get a stadium.....to find out if we are going to have a NFL season at all, we are also silently watching to see what Brett Farve will do this year.  Retire?  Coach? Commentary (no, not that one, he's a terrible interview!)  Play football again?  But, with who?  Speculation is:  he might return!

Will They Stay Or Will They Go? The Minnesota Vikings May Have A Friday Deadline For Stadium

Remember when the Minnesota North Stars left?  The first thing the state did was put together a plan to get an NHL franchise back.  If the Minnesota Vikings leave, that will happen again but there are no guarantees of the state getting another team nor would it be deserving of one if they lose the Vikings.  The difference is right now the state and Vikings have an opportunity to work things out, if both sides sincerely want to.  If they don't I believe we'll see the Minnesota Vikings move to L.A.
 

Minnesota Vikings owners and Gov. Mark Dayton emerged from a summitmeeting Tuesday pledging to try to plug by Friday a funding hole of up to $131 million in the team's proposed new $1 billion Arden Hills home.

That hole appeared no smaller after Dayton reiterated
