Sid you and your wealthy friends had huge impact on the HHH Metrodome. It became a dump in 5 years because it was done on the cheap. reread your columns you wrote on the HHH Dome. Talking it up, saying how great it was. It has been embarrassment for the area.You stay out of things now.

Than in 5 years when we are begging to get a team here. We learned that lesson the hard way when the North Stars left and we ended up with the Adjectives, just think of how much money could have been saved if a new stadium was built only five or six yers prior. These anti-stadium folks just don't understand how much revenue is brought into the Cities on game day and for other events. I think we should have said no to the NHL and yes to Vikings ten years ago and we would not be discussing this now.

would be glad if the Vikings left just so someone might show a passing interest in that pansy coach and team.

Didn't they finish last year 0-7 or something with the last game being a 55-0 loss? Is this what he means by knowing how to finish?

The topic could be hockey, and you would still bring his name up...

No public money for billionaires. Tired of being held hostage by these jerks.

I'm from ND so I don't really care what the state of MN does, but if you gave money to the Pohlads who could give a crap about the state or building a winning team, how can you not contribute to a stadium for Zygi?

Hey! Sid does, often, make proclamations, it makes him, for the most part, endearing. He is also a "homer," I like that. The Lakers, a very good basketball team, left for California. They have since been replaced by the Timberwolves. The Vikings will never move.

Do you really think that a healthy Decker would've made a difference in those butt whoopings we received in Big 10 play last year including 55 - donut to Iowa? Wake up Sid!!!! Watch the games!!!! The reason this team is so bad again this year is COACHING! Needing overtime to beat the worst BCS conference team in the nation is an embarassment. We hired a used car salesman to run our team. Punky and Maturi must go!
