    I would be very interested in seeing any printed documentation of the state demanding the roof.

    And as far as the MSFC goes, they should be disbanded, tarred, feathered and sent to Iowa for the rest of their days. They have no real benefit other than sucking money out of the system.
    There are many, many quotes in which the Vikings say that they would prefer an open air stadium.
    There are also quotes with the MSFC saying that they need a roof.
    The MSFC is the state representative in this instance.
    Where are these quotes and who is the MSFC rep that made them?

    Lester Bagley, the Vikings' vice president of public affairs and stadium development, said afterward that the idea of a retractable roof came from the commission, not the Vikings. "Our position hasn't changed. Our preference is open air," Bagley said. The issue of the retractable roof sank the hopes of a Vikings stadium package in the Legislature earlier this year because nobody was willing to pay for it.

    You'd better save that one my friend.
    This seems to come up about every 3 or 4 months or so doesn't it?
