    Vikings stadium will be losing some bells and whistles

    Vikings stadium will be losing some bells and whistles | ProFootballTalk

    Nothing too big or surprising. The parking garage probably won't be in the final design, but it looks like the skyway and 95' doors will make their way back in via Vikings funding.

    Changes to scope when going from initial design estimate to contract are normal.

    I would think they would be able to cut out a few things that could still be added later if need be. The parking garage and escalators don't seem like anything that couldn't be added a few years after it's built. I'm just glad we are getting a new stadium. It's going to be awefully nice when it's done no matter what the end result is.

    I want to go on record in saying the design is pretty awesome. The Vikings are doing this the right way, the way the SF Giants did with their ballpark: make it pretty, make it epic, and make the stadium something that other cities see and are jealous of.

    Going to Pac Bell park was fun regardless of how well the Giants did, and it looks like you lucky Vikings fans that live in the area are in for a treat. Well, if you can afford it...hehe.

    I'm really not too concerned how it looks or what bells n whistles are included, I'm more concerned about the shadow problems that half glass roof is going to create. I dread watching the Colts play a day game with the roof open because all the shadows give me a migraine. At least they can close the roof. If we end up with a bad shadow problem we'll just have to deal with it.

    By the time they're done, we'll be back down to a narrow corridor & less bathrooms making it difficult to navigate around people standing in long lines at concessions on our way to standing in long lines & the rest room where we are wondering what's happening on the field because there's no broadcast of the games.

    But we'll still have some cool 90 foot glass doors.
