    Re: Unfair homefield advantages.

    Almost all indoor stadiums get loud, but no team took more advantage of it than the Vikings under Dennis Green in the 1990s. Minnesota, a perennial playoff team at the time, allegedly piped in noise to make calling plays very difficult for opponents.
    Sigh... I am soooo looking forward to the dome rocking like that again.
    Nothing gets the crowd excited like winning.

    God I hope we're good next year. Just seeing a picture of the dome at full capacity on gameday gets me all jittery inside. SKOL.

    When our system gets instilled in these guys and we get some experience, that place will be louder than my mother when she had to get me up for church.

    Agree....

    I have only been home to one game (Oct. 19, 2003) - Moss Toss to Moe.

    Anyway, nothing like Feeling a game, vice going to one.
    Everyone was so loud you could feel it.

    Only in the Dome
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Never been to the dome, always wanted to, but living in England doesnt exactly give me the opportunity.

    The Ole Met December-January 'weather' gave the Vikings a bigger HF advantage than the Dumpty Dome 'noise'.



    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !

    Did you ever go to the Old Met?
    The Metrodome is a palace compared to that place.
    people seem to forget what a PoS it was.
    Yeah, it was outdoors, and yeah, we fielded some good teams there.
    But the stadium itself was horrible.
    The seats were 35 yards away from the field in some spots and part of the bleachers were condemned because the railings were falling off...

    I am all for home field advantage but not at the expense of the fan experience.
