    Stadium talks continue

    Vikings officials spent Friday negotiating the final terms of a memorandum of understanding to build a new stadium in Anoka County. The marathon session ended short of an agreement, but details could be worked out as early as Monday. Plans call for a joint announcement to be made by the middle of next week.

    The stadium would cost upward of $700 million if it includes a retractable roof. Owner Zygi Wilf has pledged to contribute $250 million, partially through an NFL loan program, while the county plans a sales tax of three quarters of a cent to account for another $240 million. The remainder would come from the state for infrastructure costs.


    Darn Zygi, your awesome :grin:

    That WILL be so awesome! At least Zygi agreed to pony up 1/3 of the cost! I'm liking this guy more and more ever day!

    Oh we will, we will. Zygi wants the best in the NFL & he will have it. He tours the stadiums we play at to find his likes & dislikes. He's going to take the best of all the stadiums & use that to model our new one. It's gotta be retactable though, or we won't see another Super Bowl played in Minnesota. I'm sure Zygi's taking that into consideration.

    Zygi just might be the best thing that's happened to our team in a while.

    Thats nice that Zygi is willing to do all this stuff, but I dont want the Vikes to get a new stadium. I would rather have them keep the dome. I love that place. I dont see whats wrong with it.

    The dome is great. And if it were Zygi's decision he might keep it. But if the Vikes don't get a new stadium, the NFL will re-locate them.

    I'm glad he's fighting to keep the Los-Angelis Vikings away.

    I think it's funny that Zygi already has done WAYYYYYYYYYYYY more then Red did in his whole stay.. Im glad Zygi is doing what he is doing and I hope he continues to do so.. I wish we could keep the dome a little though.. I've never gotten to go there except for a Twins game when I was little.. You can't get to a better place for a sporting event i've heard.. Hopefully the Saints relocate so we can keep the dome but im positive that won't happen
