    Re: Vikings to announce deal with Ramsey County at 4

    It's going to get ugly. After all, we've been to this dance before.

    Stadium foes will equate the project with welfare for millionaires and somehow try to link the public dollars being spent on a football stadium to the plight of the homeless, an uptick in urban crime and deteriorating test scores in our elementary schools.

    Stadium proponents will bellow that without a new facility the team will be gone in the blink of an eye. That the building and eventual operation of the facility will create much-needed jobs. And that Minnesota eventually will construct a new stadium, anyway. If not for the Vikings, then for the next NFL team. Because, as was the case after the North Stars left, people will realize that they really do want a team. And it will be more expensive then.
    My tax dollars already go to a lot of crap that I don't care about. But nobody asked me if it was OK. No sense asking now.

    We aren't consulted on public works projects or funding for the arts or tax breaks for certain businesses. This is no different. Take a position and go for it. Is it a good deal?

    I have a feeling in the end a deal will get done, but this is definitely dragging out far longer than anyone hoped it would.

    I like the partnership announcement, but as stated by others, this means nothing until there is funding.

    An overview of the site plan, sort of disappointing to see the majority of parking distanced a ways from the stadium-

    Even now, a Vikings stadium is not a sure thing
