    I want to know your thoughts

    Going into the 2007-08 season we will still be without a stadium..much like the Twins for what i see and been hearing on Local TV and Radio..What are your thoughts as the new legislature will "soon" begin work on a new approval for a Viking Stadium?

    Let me say this..
    This Wilfs should build it themselves...your a multi-billion dollar industry and you want more money for revenue for your team...build it you fing self!!

    Nothing, but I believe the Vikings lease runs out in 2011.

    It doesn't matter if the lease runs out, the VIkings can still play there (the twins did for years).
    As far as who pays for it, I think that everyone who benefits from a stadium should pay for a part of it.
    That includes the tax payers, since the community will reap benefits as well.

    The taxes on tickets, parking and food generates a lot of money for Hennipen County and the State of Minnesota. Why shouldn't they pick up part of the tab?

    One of the proposals is for a metro-wide, multi-county tax.

    As a resident of Dakota County, MN, part of the metro, how exactly (other than keeping the Vikings here) will I reap benefits from a stadium in downtown Minneapolis or elsewhere which is not Dakota County?

    I think the Vikings will have a new stadium deal and ground broken by the end of the 2008 season.

    Re: I want to know your thoughts

    I am vacationing with the family down here in Orlando, FL and who do we meet in line at one of the Disney rides (they noticed my son's Viking Jersey)?
    A couple from Minneapolis, MN . . . who are Buccaneer fans (go figure!)

    As residents of your great state . . . they are opposed to any state financing of a stadium . . . and said there were plenty of others with the same views.

    Apparently Ziggy needs to launch a media campaign to sell the taxpayers first on why a tax / state funded stadium is a good thing!
