No thanks. The 'Metropolitan Council' has too much power already. They don't need more power to impose taxes for every new special interest group in the State that wants a taxpayer grant. Sorry, these sports teams will have to go about business down at the Capitol in the public light.

The NBA is failing as a business, and now they want to jump on with the Vikings. Well jump on the band wagon to LA... Oh wait, LA has 2 basketball teams, one of which it already doesn't want. Honestly, fix your league economics and pay for your own stadiums and arenas. Why don't you get that 80% of us would rather see you fix your internal economic system. If players are striking you don't share enough profits with them in the NFL, WHY ARE US TAXPAYERS NOT ABLE TO DEMAND YOU USE your profits to build stadiums. Say you can't afford to, and I say, stop paying unproven draft picks $15+ million a year!!!

The state is broke but we want to legislate a billion dollars for the billionaire owners and the millionaire jocks. NOT.

The sad fact is even if the T-wolves moved to California,there would still only be two teams

"There'd be two football stadiums, and I just don't think that's very practical," - No, what's not practical is spending the public's money on niceties like this when there are so many other programs that help people that are being cut or eliminated. Let the owners spend the money - they have it. Stop using the public's money for these things!

I have an idea. Build the global stadium in Los Angeles, where it belongs.
