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 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

Vikings, Ramsey County Strike Potential Stadium Deal

Is this the solution to the Minnesota Vikings stadium issue or is it a last effort that is destined to be held up in political games, causing Minnesota to lose its beloved franchise?  It sounds like both parties are excited and they both realize the amount of money the state will kick in, so perhaps there will be a happy ending for Vikings fans.
The Minnesota Vikings and Ramsey County announced an agreement on Tuesday to build a $1 billion football stadium with a retractable roof in Arden Hills, capping a furious day of last-minute negotiations and brushing aside concerns from Gov. Mark Dayton and others that the project may be seriously flawed.

Dayton: Vikings Should Pay Up To Half The Cost Of New Stadium

The governor has never publicly said what he thought the team should cover and now perhaps his comments will begin a negotiating process?  I would love to see the Vikings get a stadium and I think using casino revenues and an increase in sports merchandise tax is a good path for public costs so it won't impact everyone.  While Vikings brass may not want to pay that much out of pocket, they must be happy that there is a conversation on topic rather than indifference.
Gov. Mark Dayton, the most important booster at the State Capitol for a subsidized Minnesota Vikings stadium, said Monday that the team should pay more than they've publicly committed for the stadium.

Vikings officials say the team would pay a third of the cost of a roofless stadium, estimated at about $700 million. The stadium bill recently introduced also puts the team's contribution at a third of the cost, requiring at least $1 for every $2 of state and local money.
