    Minnesota Senate committee authorizes Vikings stadium study

    Minnesota Senate committee authorizes Vikings stadium study

    http://www.in-forum.com/articles/index.cfm?id=196169&section=Daily%20Update

    ST. PAUL (AP) – A state Senate committee served up a stadium appetizer Thursday for the Minnesota Vikings amid clear signs the team will be back for the main course in 2009.

    An amendment to a bigger tax plan authorizes the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission to proceed on a $2 million study of design, site and financing options of a new stadium complex. The team and the commission would split the cost.

    Actually they do, and they even mentioned it in the article.
    But the MSFC knows that if the state finances it, then the state will be compelled to act on the results instead of just pushing it aside.
    The previous study(s) was financed by the MSFC and/or the Vikings.

    The sports commission’s chairman, Roy Terwilliger, said the panel probably doesn’t need the Legislature’s backing to do the study. But he said he wanted state lawmakers to sign off on the large expense because the stadium debate will return to the Capitol eventually. The commission has a $15 million reserve fed by Metrodome event revenue.

    Terwilliger, an appointee of Gov. Tim Pawlenty, said the report would include a menu of financing options for state lawmakers to consider.

    “Time is money here,” he said, stressing that each year of delay adds tens of millions of dollars to the stadium construction cost.

    They better get this new d@mn stadium built or I'm gonna be heated.
    >

    The Minnesota Vikings are the only sports franchise I have a true passion for, and if they move I'll be devastated. I mean, I'm only 21 but I've collected a decent amount of Vikings memorbilla. I think we can all agree that it would suck to have a boatload of memorbilla labled MINNESOTA Vikings for a team that just moved to L.A.

    In the P.J.'s, my blend tape plays, bullets are strays
    Young bitches is grazed
    Each block, is like a maze, full of black rats trapped
    Plus the Island is packed
    From what I hear in all the stories when my peoples come back, black

    Thanks for that NP - nice to know there is some movement going on. One bit I'm not sure about is
    Bagley said the Vikings and the NFL have committed $250 million toward the project. That leaves $700 million for stadium supporters to find.
    I thought the NFL funding for stadiums had all finished now?
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    It had.
    Goodell wants to reimplement it, but will likely face stiff opposition from the larger market owners.
    The $250 is just from the Vikings.

    sounds about right, the larger market owners have had their portion from the trough and floop the rest
