    Stadium deal coming closer, RETRACTABLE ROOF???

    http://www.startribune.com/stories/510/5608033.html

    Important piece of article:

    ...The Minnesota Vikings are close to an agreement with Anoka County for a football stadium in Blaine that a top county official said would include both parties investing roughly $240 million and may feature a retractable roof.

    Margaret Langfeld, chairwoman of the Anoka County Board, said Saturday that she and other top county officials had been meeting almost daily with the Vikings, and that new Vikings owner Zygi Wilf told the county on Friday he expected a deal to be finalized by the end of this week...



    I liked Zygi from the start, He is the man!!!

    Ziggi will get the job done. If he's already talking about putting up roughly $250 million of his own money, he's serious. And with that amount of money vested, he won't let it be a joke stadium ... it will rock.

    Here's one that I think hasn't been posted as of yet:


    Wilf Close to Blaine Deal

    By Viking Update Staff
    Date: Sep 10, 2005

    The Vikings are expected to announce they have reached an agreement with Anoka County to build a new Vikings stadium.

    The stadium talk around Minnesota has been buzzing for months, but for Vikings owner Zygi Wilf, the talk hasn't been complete enough.

    With the potential for the governor to call a special session of the State Legislature, one of the items that would likely be handled as part of it would be discussion on a new Gophers stadium and a potential final vote on a new Twins stadium already approved by local officials.

    But absent from those talks has been discussion of a new Vikings stadium. At first, legislative leaders said there wasn't much of a reason to discuss a Vikings stadium, because there wasn't much of a need for it, because there wasn't even a concept plan in place. Expect that could change.

    VU has been told that Wilf plans to announce that an agreement has been reached with Anoka County to eventually build a stadium north of Anoka. No timetable is currently being set as to when construction could start or when the Vikings could take occupancy. However, Wilf has pledged to kick in $250 million to get the stadium built.

    If the language of the agreement can be finalized in time, if a special session is called later this month or in October, the Vikings might finally get themselves into political debate to get their stadium deal off the ground.
