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

    They can still make it.
    I would say no if they didn't play Det 6 more games before the end of the season.


    Making it out of the first round..... that is where they would have
    a tough time.


    This is more than likely a non issue all the way around.

    How can the NFL move a Monday night game?
    There is so much advertisement that has already committed to that date and that forum.

    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.
    I did look. Then I looked at every other mini streak they went on this season and factored in the loss of Mournie and came to the conclusion. Your opinion may differ and that is fine.

    IMO Vikes play at the new Gophers stadium problem solved.
    Problem: 64k capacity vs. 50k.
    Problem: No alcohol sales at TCF, they'd have to bring in beer carts.
    Problem: Getting refunds for the 15k that won't get in to see it.
    Problem: Not enough parking for the amount of cars.
    Problem: No light rail service to TCF, for the non vehicle drivers.

    Solution: Make the twins game early around noon. Push the vikings game back an hour to 8 ct.

    How many fans would simply "hang out" in the dome bathroom stalls & await the Vikings game so they wouldn't have to buy a ticket & sit in one of the open seats?

    While morneau is a good player, he's not exactly pujols or manny. Have you seen what he's done the last week or so. No? me either, because it wasn't much. Mauer is more important then morneau at the point. IF they don't make the playoffs, it's not because morneau was out for the season.

    That would be messed up to move the Vikings game. People have already bought tickets and out of towners have booked hotels/flights. Many people made the decision to buy tickets to the game based on the date, many people who bought tickets might not be able to go if it is moved. Nobody has bought tickets for the Twins game that may or may not happen- move that.

    No one. Both games would likely be sold out. Up until this season, gophers/twins would have doubleheaders in the dome frequently in the fall.

    You are right. He was only the AL MVP for 2006 and was an all star the past few seasons. On a roster as deep with talent as the Twins they will never know he was gone.

    So you think he hasn't done much in the past week? That wouldn't have anything to do with the stress fracture in his back would it?
