    Re: Wilf Says Vikes Will Stay

    first off wilf could move the team to LA but he won't get support like he does here and also he won't have all the land that he wants to develop on; wilfs about making money and he can make more money here than in LA. the raiders and rams didn't work in LA. also the metrodome is good enough for baseball if they want luxary suites they should just add some in cause nobody goes to games anyways so why should they get a new stadium if nobody goes to games? the football games are always sold out so i think they should get the stadium cause they bring in the money, more tax money and they can make it 72,000 seats and they would fill it up. if they don't have a roof they can't get the super bowl but who cares sure it brings in a lot of money but thats a one time thing over 30 years and that averages out to not much money. the roof can cost 100 to 150 million just to put a roof on. so we need a open air stadium that would be cool. anyways who wants to pay huge money to see a super bowl in your home town if the superbowl don't have your team playing in it?

    I think that the Twins and the U of M should stay at the dome and be happy with what they got for a while. I went to a Twins game a few years ago and the place was empty. Also, I don't see a need to waste a decent stadium.
    I think it was seattle that had the same problem with no one going to the games, but they built a new stadium and the place has been packed ever since. The only reason I dont go to the twins games more (I go to 4 or 5 a year) is because the stadium sucks for baseball.

    I think a new stadium that has more of a baseball park feel would help the twins just like it helped the seattle. If you have ever gone to wrigley field you would know just what I mean. that stadium is old but it has the feel of baseball.


    Yep, a new stadium would do wonders for our crappy attendance at twins games.

    Check the attendance records of every team that built a new stadium and you will see a huge increase the year they opened the new stadium, no matter how crappy the team.

    An awesome stadium with a good team like the twins, and we should get a great boost in attendance.
    If I was positive that a new stadium would raise attendance considerabley, I would be for it. After all, I like to jump on the bandwagon when their doing well. I've watched every World Series game when I was young.

    I wonder what will happen after the lease is up.

    I certainly don't like relying on a real estate developer for "truth"...and I'll be very upset if he decides at some future point in time that it's right for the franchise to move to LA.

    I trust nobody, except people who think like me....Glen Taylor lives where I live, he already owns a team her (he's a fan of the Vikes....not a Giants fan), and he would be willing to make the Vikes better....Wilf will just be another McCombs....a businessman using my team to add to his immense wealth, and I hate it. You trust anyone, and your sh!t gets stolen! I don't want the Vikes to get stolen by Wilf!
