    Re: Stadium talks continue

    Nah, the dome sucks. Its does the job and thats about it. Nothing flashy, nothing great, its just a place to play. I think that building should be torn down or burned or something.

    It sucks to watch baseball at and there are too many obstructed view seats for football. Its like going to a wild game, when they torn down the old arena it was hard to see go, but after going to the X to watch a game there is nothing like it in minnesota. You dont even have to be a hockey fan to enjoy a game there, its just the best place I have ever been for a pro sport of any kind. there are no bad seats in the house, you see the action unfold from anywhere, the atmosphere is crazy, just a great place.

    Now if the twins can get a stadium built I would definatly go see more twins games. And the vikings, if they do it right, going to a vikings game wont be just about watching the vikings play a game, or how loud the dome gets. it will be more of a total experience. Easy to get around, visually stunning, tailgate party at the stadium, and comfortable to sit in and watch a game. i cant stand watching football indoors, I would love to be outside watching it, sun beating down, snow fall, rain (ok, so maybe they can close the roof for rain).

    Man, I really hate the dome after thinking about it.

    Obstructed views or "limited view" are views that are blocked by the concrete pillars in the upper level. For the most part I believe they are all in row 27. Any seat behind that may or may not have a blocked view depending on where your seat is in that section. If you already have your tickets look at the face value on them. If they are limited view it will say so on the ticket. Those tickets have a price on them of $9.90

    Well I certainly hope we get the new digs soon. I always liked the dome though, never really thought there were many bad seats in the house!

    When or if the vikes get this stadium Ziggy will recoupe all of the money because a stadium would make the value of the franchise sky rocket through that retractable roof.

    Stadium......

    Vikings, Anoka County reach stadium deal
    Kevin Seifert, Star Tribune
    September 19, 2005 STADIUM


    The Vikings will announce tomorrow an agreement to build a $675 million stadium and related development in Anoka County.

    A press conference has been scheduled for 10 a.m. in Blaine, near the site where new owner Zygi Wilf plans to build the structure, a Vikings team official said.

    Wilf and the NFL plan to combine on a $250 million contribution, while Anoka County will provide $240 million through a county-wide sales tax.

    The Vikings and Anoka County will ask the state for the nearly $200 million in infrastructure costs.

    Looks like we might be getting a stadium afterall. Well, as long as the state pitches in a couple hundred million.

    Re: Stadium......

    That sounds sweet. Doesn't a stadium at that cost include a retractable roof? I thought I read that somewhere. What are the chances (with Twins and Gophers in the mix) that we get that 200 million though?

    Another great sig by PPE!

    A retractable roof would be sweet, but I'd like to see them play some games in snow. Those are the best games to watch.
