    I would have to agree with that, but I don't know what they could really do to update it. It's not like they can add seating and since the Twins use it also, they can't work on it during the summer like the packers did!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    I think a new stadium is in order due to the above given reasons and the fact that the dome is getting old. The Twins probably would like to see a new stadium top to make it easier on the outfielders picking up the ball.
    can we clone Bud Grant?

    that and the sport of baseball needs to be played outside! I think they need their own stadiums. I wouldn't mind seeing the vikes play outdoors either though!

    There's no way to "rework" it to satisfy Red's lust for money. You can't add seats, though you might be able to take seats away to add more luxury boxes. You can't do much about the concession situation. They have tried to figure out how to make more money from playing in the Dome, but they haven't come up with anything viable. It's unfortunate, but sooner or later the Vikings will have to get a new stadium to produce more revenue (the Vikings are near the very bottom as far as revenue in the NFL).

    It would probably help if the Vikings didn't have to pay 10% of suite revenue to former GM Mike Lynn (that's gross receipts, before expenses). LOL - How long has it been since he's been here, 20 years? What a 'suite' deal for him. I still want to know how he suckered others into that deal.

    What is that all about SKOL, I have no idea what that is. Could you elaborate on that whole Mike Lynn thing?

    Playing outside would give us a huge advantage against warm weather teams. Besides that... I just think that sports deserve to be played outside, well sports like football and baseball anyways
