    Vikings begin Final Push for new Stadium

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...r-new-stadium/

    This could probably merge with the Pioneer Press article.


    Either way its a sad reality, if neither side budges.
    My question is why wouldn't the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission look to sell the dome at a very low price to the Vikes and then see if Zygi's $250million, plus the $125 million from the NFL would complete a renovation?

    Somenthing's gotta give.

    Looks like the major announcement will be that the Vikings have signed a business agreement with the Mall of America.
    The new Vikings stadium will be called Mall of America Field.
