    Re: Vikings to announce deal with Ramsey County at 4

    Shouldn't this be in some "Official Stadium" thread? There are multiple threads on the stadium on the first page after all.

    I think that training facility is just a waste of space. What's wrong with Winter Park?

    maybe he can come and teach young ponder the finer points of playing the position. I mean, the coaches and team will help him through the football part, but Ponder has alot to learn, when to develop a painkiller addiction, how drunk you can be to show up for a game, but not get in trouble, how to properly sext massage therapists and bangin hot reporters, then what you're supposed to do in the offseason.

    On Thursday, St. Paul mayor Chris Coleman said that it would be unfair for Ramsey County (in which St. Paul is located) to bear a local burden for hosting the stadium, given that citizens throughout Minnesota watch and enjoy the Vikings. Also on Thursday, it became clear that folks in Minneapolis aren’t ready to wave the same white flag the Vikings could have used the last time the Packers came to town.

    Goodwin: Vikings changed stadium story with her


    But roughly two months ago, amid indications Ramsey County was eyeing a bid to lure the team, Goodwin said she was told a different story by the Vikings. “One of their lobbyists told me that. . .they really want it in Minneapolis,” she said. “I said, ‘I’m glad. . .at least I finally know.’

    Dayton voices more reservations on Vikings stadium plan

    Gov. Mark Dayton said Friday that the proposed Minnesota Vikings stadium in Arden Hills is “appealing to the Vikings” but may not be in the best interest of Minnesotans.
    In an interview with the Star Tribune, the governor expressed concerns regarding the planned stadium in Ramsey County, saying that the team would control much of the project and that a proposed five-member stadium authority that he would help appoint would have limited authority.
    “I could see why that would be appealing to the Vikings. I don’t know why Ramsey County agreed to it,” Dayton said of the overall plan.

    If a politician says it, it must be true.
