    Waiting until 2013 to approve stadium 'not an option,' Vikings VP says | 1500 ESPN Twin Cities ? Minnesota Sports News & Opinion (Twins, Vikings, Wolves, Wild, Gophers)

    Pretty much the same thing reported on 1500ESPN.

    I'm with NodakPaul, after this debacle with the MN legislature if the Vikes leave my fandom goes with.

    This is just getting the state out of the way so a county can step in and do a deal.

    Yeah, a county like Ramsey County. No wait... How about Anoka? Crap, no... I heard that Shakopee was interested. I am SURE that they will have more success...

    We have had counties do deal. Good ones too. It didn't work.

    Honestly, if I was a Minnesota taxpayer, I would be embarrassed by this state government.

    Oh trust me, as a MN taxpayer, I am embarrassed.. I wish there were words I can speak that could take away the embarrassment that is our state's legislature.

    You don't need words. Let your voting talk for you.

    By having teams move out is how Minnesota gets new stadiums built;

    1. First watch professional sports team leave state.
    2. Realize mistake
    3. Now build new arena/stadium & beg to get a new franchise team to come to Minnesota
