    Pretty spendy price tag with more to come just to build the stadium downtown.

    Just the fact that it's being built downtown will add millions to the cost to the stadium vs. if it were built elsewhere.

    They need space to disassemble the Dome in order to move it to LA.

    Yes it will.
    But the support simply isn't there for it to be built elsewhere.
    Minneapolis and Hennepin county are pretty strong players in the legislature, and putting the new stadium downtown puts them on our side.

    True.
    OK fair enough.

    The important thing is that Zygi is making progress.
    Concrete, definite progress.

    Amen.
    You and I are in the same camp - we're believers.
