    Facts:
    1. Metrodome is a crap hole and the Vikings have made it clear that this building is no longer a viable option.
    2. Minnesota Legislators are more concerned with staying in office than serving the state.

    Result:
    1. John Marty and Linda Runbeck work up stadium plan to GIVE the Dome to the Vikings.
    2. Vikings would incur all operating costs and annual taxes ($1.67 million a year) but reap the benefits of being the landlords over the NFL Slum stadium and all revenue from event tickets and concessions.

    Worst. Idea. Ever.

    If you keep poking the bear, eventually it's going to rear it's ugly head and bite. Or in this case, move to L.A.

    The Wilf's should agree to the deal. Then turn around and move the team to LA anyway.

    But seriously they would feel like fools if Wilf agreed and built a state of the art arena only to reap all the profit from it for the next 20 years.

    This has already been done before. I know personally that my local Rep. and others made that very offer to Wilf more than 4 years ago and were rejected then.

    While it was good political grandstanding for those 2 and they got a few minutes of press out of it but it has zero impact on the real stadium debate.

    There will be a new stadium bill passed by thanksgiving

    I understand, just ribbing you a bit. Although I would give myself better odds than the one I have with Defroster.
