    Well in order to keep our team in Minnesota I think the stadium is more important right now.


    I'm not even going to touch the QB debate... it just makes me angry.
    I completely agree.
    It doesn't matter what kind of QB we have if the Vikes aren't even going to be here in 3 years.

    Re: Vikings Fans: Franchise QB or Outdoor Stadium?

    We have a franchise RB, a franchsie WR, a franchise OG, a franchise OT, a franchise C, a franchise DE, a franchise DT, a franchise DT, a franchise LB, a franchise LB, a franchise CB, a franchise S, and a franchise P.

    I may use the term franshise loosely, but that doesn't change the fact the we don't have a new stadium, new stadium plans, a new stadium site, or new stadium funding.

    Nice post i totally agree
    I'm kindof leaning that way as well.

    ;D

    Not so sure I would go so far as to want a Outdoor stadium as it gets gol 'darnit cold up there or have you guys forgot?

    I would, however, want a new stadium (with a retractable roof maybe) rather than a Franchise QB.
    QB's come and go, but a stadium will be around for at least a few years more.
    ;D
    I saw some old footage of guys in the open air on a vikings game with no shirts and spelled V I K I N G S on their chests. how cool would that be if we did that with some guys here on PP.O ;D
    I remember seeing stuff like that in person at the Old Met... in September.
    By the time October rolled around people weren't as likely to do it.
    Kind funny though, in 1998, me and four buddies spelled out V I K E S on our chests for the home opener.
    Brings back memories...

    As for the vote, if I had to choose between a new outdoor stadium or a franchise QB, I would choose the QB every time, hands down.
    I do NOT want an open air stadium in Minnesota.
    We couldn't fill the seats at the Met when we had superbowl teams.
    What do you think would happen now?
    Watch the new gopher stadium a few years after it is built, and see how many fans are in the stands on cold days.

    Now, if I were to choose between a brand new retractable roof or closed air stadium, I would go with the stadium.

    You may be right about the Vikings having an open air stadium..
    But believe you to be wrong about the Gophers.
    Just with their new stadium on campus they should see more student fans.
    Look at the Badgers..
    They fill up.
    And besides, the college football season doesn't go as deep into the arctic air as the NFL season does.

    Re: Vikings Fans: Franchise QB or Outdoor Stadium?

    I would want a new stadium, no question.

    I QB would only be around for 15 years max, while a new stadium could be there for 50.

    And besides, we already have our franchise QB.
    ;D

    Both

    The only stadium I want or will go to is open air and the franchise QB is a no brainer.

    We get a nice stadium, with a good team to play in it we will get a Franchise Qb to come here. Not that we couldn't now, but it would help.

    That would suck. That one corner is so far away. Aren't the twins getting their stadium anyways?
