    New Stadium

    Viking Nation...
    I need your opinion...
    Why can't the Vikings get a new stadium deal done?
    What are the reasons?
    Politics or performance... what do you all think?

    We can.

    All you need to do to get involved is to send either the state or Wilf a check for about 800 million dollars and Wilf will kick in the rest.

    It's that easy.

    Welcome to PP.O XeroEdge.
    There are a lot of reasons that the Vikings do not have a new stadium bill right now.
    A large part of the problem was Red McCombs and his threats back when he owned the team.


    However, the Vikings have made more headway in the three years that Zygi has owned the team than Red did during his entire tenure.
    I have faith that we will get one done soon.

    Check out some of the many discussions we have on this subject.

    [size=14pt]RFPs for new Vikings stadium expected in July
    [/size]

    http://www.bizjournals.com/twincities/stories/2008/06/23/daily38.html
    The Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission in Minneapolis expects to issue separate proposals in July to architects and general contractors to design and build a new NFL stadium on the site of the Metrodome.

    The RFPs should be available July 17, the day the commission's board meets to approves the documents. After interviews in mid-August, the selections would be announced August 21 at the group's next meeting, said MSFC Exec Director Bill Lester.

    The intent is to have an architect and builder in place when the facilities commission (MSFC) goes to the state Legislature in January.
