    Dig, I hear ya, however, here in the states, as Ned aluded to, we are even slower....

    Here is a link to the timeline for the Cards stadium and they don't have the inclement weather during the year that the Vikes new stadium builders will encounter.

    This one talks about the Cowgirls stadium.
    Started in 2006 it will be ready in 2009.

    Again, my guess is we will be watching the team play from the new Gopher stadium for a couple of years.

    Here is a timeline for the Gophers stadium.
    Ground broke in 2006, ready in 2009.

    Nice research Marr.
    Yeah, I guess you might be right - we'll be playing the the gopher stadium for two years.
    We need to remember that our construction season in Minnesota is shorter than other parts of the country too.

    I hope that everybody who is hell bent on an outdoor stadium takes the opportunity to watch a December Vikings game in TCF stadium.... That might change a few minds of people who have never experienced it.
    By the time a December Vikings game at TCF rolls around, the roof "issue" with the Vikes will be resolved, yes?

    =Z=
    Yup.
    And if I had to guess, I think it will be a fixed roof.
    I anticipate some complaints from people regarding that, and I would love for the most vocal to sit through a full game at TCF in December.

    You can bet your a$$ ;D
    I will be there. I would either be outside hunting pheasants anyway so it's not I would have to adjust.

    Just look for the Norwegian wearing the Hawaiian shirt and sunglasses.

    I might even have to buy season tickets for my company if this goes through.

    Tell you what.
    I will buy both you and UffDa tickets right next to me for the last game in December at TCF.
    Just so I can see if you are all talk!

    Of course, it will be easy to get a seat... since it will be half empty anyway.

    Your probably right, but in a new stadium it doesn't matter if the seats are half empty, as long as the luxury boxes are full us nose bleed fans don't matter much.
    The tailgating lot was pretty empty for the Sunday night game against the Bears on 12/17/07.

    Re: Vikings stadium plans move forward

    This whole wanting a roof is ridiculous... there is nothing better then watching a game outdoors in the rain or snow. The Vikings lost home-field advantage. I am definitely going to go to an outdoor game at TCF if they play there. I love going to Lambeau or Soldier Field in the cold and watch the vikings play... or not play in the case of the November game in GB. I was still screaming and rooting them on at 34-0... i wish childress would have kicked a field goal

    I admire your dedication, but neither Soldier nor Lambeau is as cold as Minny in December.

    Just means our home field advantage will be greater than theirs.
