The Metrodome, The Taxes, and The Vikings.
Could a perfect storm be gaining steam in the great north? This season for the Vikings has been pure hell, and with their stadium giving way to snow, and the voters reluctant to fund a new one - I wouldn't be surprised if we see the first NFL relocation in years.
One blogger happens to agree:
The Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome roof collapsed under the weight of 17.1 inches of snow last night. Leaving the sorry Minnesota Vikings without a home stadium for this week's game against the New York Giants team. The stadium is twenty-eight years old, and can hold over 64,000 fans at any given NFL game.
Public Policy Polling recently found that 49% of Minnesota voters would rather have the Vikings leave for greener pastures, such as California, than to publicly fund a new stadium with taxpayer dollars via increased taxes. With the stadium situation reaching a zenith of epic proportions with yesterday's snow storm, one must wonder whether the voters will change their minds on public funding.None

When are you going to realize that picking out the 20 bad throws this year and ignoring the 300 good ones does not make your point?

The city would have millionaires spending money on homes, boats (No Pun intended), ATVs, Tvs, and so much more. The vision by some people amazes me.
You will see how ridiculous it is to let the Vikings go when they try to lure a new football franchise back to minny. Fools, they are all fools.
There s only two things stopping you - fear and common sense!! The Truth you CAN"T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!
