    Re: This in From Pioneer Press...UHOH!

    I say wa all go down there and chain ourselves to the doors so they can't pack up in the middle of the night and leave.

    I really don't know why this is such a issue.
    The Twins got their stadium, and they struggle for fans, and do not sign the talent the Vikes do.
    (I am not a huge baseball fan, but do follow somewhat).
    I think the reason that stadium got done was because the owners are from Minnesota.
    Seems odd that a team once facing contraction all of a suddent gets a new stadium.

    I don't understand this....someone just write a check and lets get on with it (only if it were that simple)

    I think it has less to do with the Twins owner being from Minnesota as it has to do with the previous Vikings owner being from Tx...
    Red caused a LOT of bad blood, and unfortunately the fans and current ownership group are paying for it.

    I didn't like this comment by Lester -

    "The clock is ticking, and the lease is coming due," Bagley said. "The state can't afford to have us become free agents."

    I have said the vikings could easily move and everyone laughs at the suggetion. I dont think its that far fetched.

    This has failure written all over it. Not sure of anyone who will lobby taxpayers for $700M in the current economic climate.

    I think the possibility of the Vikings moving grows ever more realistic.

    It's not an impossible theory, but there are other teams in the NFL with far worse situations than the Vikings.

    KFAN is reporting that the Vikings will make a "significant" business announcement today at 1145.
    I have to assume it has something to do with the stadium effort.

    Why wouldn't they design a stadium that can initially be built without a roof and at a later date (when the economy picks up) add the $250 million retractable roof. Doesn't that make the most sense? Not to mention naming rights that can help pay for a smaller portion.

    $650 million for the initial stadium.
    $250 million from Zygi.
    $400 million from the state.

    $400 million is close to what the state is chipping in for Target Field.

    lol.
    bite your tounge.

    Actually, I think that the significant announcement is going to be either a partnership agreement with a local corporation on naming rights, or an actual fiscal plan that they are laying out.
