    If The Vikes Ever Played Abroad

    This may have been done before, apologies if it has.

    Would the people of Minnesota be in favour (favor for integration
    ) if the Vikings ever played a regular season game outside the USA?

    Even though you guys only play 8 home games a year (regular), but would you sacrifice one of these games to help the NFL establish itself as a major worldwide brand?
    Who Would Have Thought It?

    Sure that would be cool. I would fly to Spain or anywhere else to watch a Vikings game.

    No.
    I would not support it.

    However, I understand the reality.

    Well...here's how I feel

    No matter what it'd be a good move for
    the league

    It'd be a good move for the Vikes if they were the road team...it levels the playing field...so much for that home field advantage...

    It'd be a bad move for the Vikes if they were the home team. They're at a disadvantage when not in the dome which is consistently one of the loudest venues in the NFL.

    Re: If The Vikes Ever Played Aroad

    I went to the pre-season game against the Bears in Goteburg, Sweden in 88.
    We had a great time.
    I was stationed in Schweinfurt, Germany at the time.
    We took 2 weeks leave and drove up to the game.
    After the game we drove to Oslo.
    Then went back to Malmo and stayed with some Swede's we met at the game.


    The best part was we stayed at the same hotel as the Vikings, and they were all friendly.
    I bummed Tommy Kramer a dip of Copenhagen.
    Met Bud Grant, Terry Bradshaw, Studwell, and a bunch other players.

    Then we went to the hotel were the Bears were staying and "Da Coach", Mike Ditka was more than happy to have his photo taken with us.
    Jimmy Mac, I don't know if he was happy or not, I just walked up to him and put my arm around him and my buddy took a photo.
    You could tell by the expression on Jimmy's face, he was thinking " who is this dick".
    Great times.

    The Vikings should play a
    game in Norway... Ullevaal Stadion (stadium).

    Only seem fitting.

    It's not big enough.
    I believe there's a 75,000-seat minimum for a stadium to be under consideration.

    What did "New" Wembley hold for the Dolphins-Giants this year?
    100,000?

    Yeah, I think that's the biggest they have in Oslo... I did a search for "Oslo Stadium" and that's what I got. I would like to see a game played in Norway though... come on.. Who wouldn't?!

    I guess the only ones that would really be upset are the fans that attend the home games.

    I for one, would still get to see them on the tube and, pending the location, would only have to adjust the time I put the wings and fish nuggets on as I get ready for the game.
    ;D
