    Re: Vikings, Anoka County Close To Stadium Deal

    You'd think they'd be willing to foot some of the bill if they got their hands on profits from having that complex....

    And MAN, a Superbowl would cover half the cost from the sounds of it...... which is almost a guarantee if you build a new stadium these days.

    [
    National Football League Commissioner Paul Tagliabue, who testified before the committee on behalf of the Vikings, said the $1 billion offer by Wilf was the largest stadium-related offer ever by an NFL owner.

    Heck yeah! Wilf's got the money baby!

    From the tone of that article it looks like the stadium is going to get built with or without the state's participation.
    Just watch, if and when da stadium gets built, you'll see all those woithless politicians comin' outta da woodwoik, pattin' demselves on da back an' takin' credit for da stadium gettin' built.

    Wilfy looks bedda an' bedda to me. He's a guy that GOES for what he wants. Every mob... er... gang... uh... organization needs a mug like dat to run it, y'know?

    Tanks for makin' my day, COJO! :smile:

    (Mebbe it's my imagination, but does Wilf kinda look like 'The Godfather'?

    Hope this works out! As a lifelong fan living in the state of California, I have heard for years that the Vikes might be going to Los Angeles.... Los Angeles is a pi$$ hole that doesnt deserve a team.... I would rather go to one or two games a year with the team staying in Minnesota then to be able to attend 8 or 9 games a year and have to share the team with the bandwagon LALA crowd!
    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.

    I am forever a skeptic. We've been pulled back and forth so many times over the years, it's exhausting. I really hope a deal gets done, and soon, but until shovels hit the ground . . . I'll resign my optimism.

    Get it done!

    Re: Vikings, Anoka County Close To Stadium Deal

    so, if a deal gets done with anoka county..

    does this mean there will be no vote? and no politiants voting on it?

    what im trying to ask is..

    if the deal gets done, do we start building or are there still many valleys to cross?

    I think if they need some extra workers to get started, I will be right there with my shovel!
