    Metrodome field paint job (part doo)

    Well the paint job actually looks a little better now that baseball is out of the picture.

    -Better 50yd line Norsman logo (I said better, not good)
    -Better yard markers

    STILL a crappy endzone however. I wish they would just bring back the "VIKINGS" font instead of that jarbled mess with the horns coming out of the lead letters. That font looks like crap period! Maybe for a high school field I would accept such bad graphics.

    I know the new field turf is harder to paint than the old carpet BUT... I just went to the Syracuse Carrier dome (newly installed field turf this past year) for some sectional high school football games and their turf graphics (and color saturation) is far, far, far by fragin far I tell you!! exceptional to ours. I'm sure the SU budget is far below that of the much larger major market of the Metrodome.

    SO... I say FIRE the field crew because they just plain suck. After how many years have they had the oppertunity to produce a decent looking playing surface? (burp)

    Only when the Super Bowl (Bills vs. Skins) was the field looking professional (and that took the guru field caretaker from KC forever to re-do, re-dye, re-everything. Of course it looked better than we should expect for everyday games but come on, my pop-warner field was comprable to our existing Metrodome field!

    I say put Tice in charge of managing the field crew. There would be less stress involved and he probably could think faster then fake turf can grow.

    I say that if the Vikings want to experience a better field paint job, they should just make it to the Super Bowl...that way we would ALL be happy!!!

    Disagree.

    The paint job this past sunday was the bomb.

    Re: Metrodome field paint job (part doo)

    I disagree with your complaint about the end zone "font". That is the original Vikings "logo" or "font", if you will, dating back to the 60's. Back in the 70's, that crooked "V" was right on the 50 yard line! I always hated that blocky "VIKINGS" logo that was in the end zone for so many years in the 80's and 90's...that looked like those letters that were spray painted on some shipping crate or military vehicle. No "style" whatsoever!
    SKOL VIKINGS!

    I am guessing by your thoughts on "The jarbled mess?", and your statements in bold, that you are to young to understand the TRUE Viking heritage. This teams heritage goes back beyond the days of John Randle and Randall Cunningham.

    The field looked awesome!!!! :grin:
