According to Ted Mondale, it would only be 10 million to remove the roof from the dome and insulate pipes etc....that could give the dome another 20 years, but the vikings don't want it.

Really now! Are all the stadiums being built only good for 20 years? If so next time hire better contractors. Ridiculous! European stadiums are 100's of years old!

Taylor and the Wolves are nothing but Jokes. Let Taylor pay for the improvements for his misfits. Isn't Taylor one of the worst basketball franchise owners ever?

The last sentence of this article acts as if "the state" will responsible for the cost of this. Is that true? If so, sorry the Vikings are at the head of the line regarding stadiums. Besides, they can't fill the damn stadium for Wolves games anyhow!

The only thing that I could see needing renovations in the Target Center would be the concourses. They look really old and outdated. Otherwise, I feel that Taylor has lost his mind.

How about taking the dam dirt off the roof! Why did Mpls. have to bail out the previous Wolves' owners and buy their building and then give them all the revenue from it????
