    They don't deserve them

    They lost the Lakers, North Stars and almost lost the Twins twice. The longer this takes what makes anyone think the Vikings are staying?
    You are always the first to say they will move but you are wrong as usual. I dont know why it is that you want to see them move, perhaps you are selfish and want them to move close to you?

    The good news is that Pawlenty is actually talking about getting something done, this is a step in the right direction in my opinion.

    Ever notice how he changed his tune after he came out and said he would not seek a third term? He has nothing to lose now by backing a stadium deal. It will be the next guys problem.

    I am curious by this statement. We have had one year - ONE - in the past 13 in which we struggled to sell out the stadium. That was the only year where any corporate help was needed.

    Right on. I have had plenty of Pawlenty and will be glad to see him go but it is refreshing to know that he is now listening. I wouldnt call it a problem either.

    While I agree with you, we also struggled to sellout a home playoff game that year. That's pretty embarrassing... not like I did anything to help though.

    Its hard to get excited about TJack leading your team in the playoffs. :unsure:

    I guess I should look on the bright side, I wouldn't have been able to see a playoff game (never saw one before) if they wouldn't have had issues.

    I hear ya, however, that is my exact point.

    Again, there are other teams out there who have shitty teams, and yet, they don't have the concerns we do.

    The implication is. Saying that the Vikings struggle to sell out because they did so one out of 13 years is an exaggeration, and implies that they routinely struggle to sell out.

    Using that same logic, I could say that Joe Mauer struggles to hit because he went 0-4 in yesterday's game against the BoSox. He is batting .353 for the season right now, and is at .327 for his career.
