    If Twins playoff date conflicts with Vikings-Packers, game to be played in GB?

    [size=13pt]Baseball playoff date conflicts with Vikings-Packers[/size]

    Will the Metrodome roof be covering up a football game or playoff game on Oct. 5?

    By JOE CHRISTENSEN and JUDD ZULGAD, Star Tribune staff writers

    ....But if the Twins need a tiebreaker and secure home-field advantage for that game, they would take precedence at the Metrodome that night, forcing the Vikings and Packers to make other plans...

    In fact, an NFL source with knowledge of the lease said there is no chance the Vikings game gets moved. That's because the NFL team's lease states it has priority over the Twins for any game other than a World Series game, a fact that conflicts with MLB's belief that the Twins would have priority in the Dome that night.
    A positive in the Vikes lease ???

    Dam,
    I was enjoying watching the Twins make this late season rally, but now I may have to wish for a different outcome than I was wishing for

    But this tid bit may be the saving grace:

    This could get interesting and messy.








    But thanks for the read and interesting situation that is apon us Twins and Vikings Fans.....But as for the Twins, it really doesn't matter, or for anyone else for that matter.
    Dodgers are going to win it all anyways.. ;D










    Again, thanks for the heads up find Singer..

    Play it at the Gophers new stadium

    The only way you are going to make this game more appealing to the public than it was before is if there are on field orgies at halftime and the domes become massive opium dens."

    I really hope that is correct. This has me going now since we are making our way all the way from Boise Idaho for that game and this could make some plan changes.....

    IMO Vikes play at the new Gophers stadium problem solved.

    No way in hell? I suggest you take a look at the standings and the twins schedule the rest of the season.
    They finish with only teams in the division, including a big series IN detroit.
