Dismissive, huh? Could that be because there's less land available for Mr. Wilf to privately own? How badly to the Vikings really want a stadium?

"We've been asked if we would be interested in looking at it. We said no," said Lester Bagley, the team's vice president for stadium development and public affairs. " Then maybe they should quit asking the Public to build them a free stadium and out their own money at risk.

Lester Bagley's reaction to an effort to provide a site for a new Vikings stadium in downtown Minneapolis confirms for me that Zygi Wilf is more interested in building a 21,000 car parking lot and a shopping mall with public subsidies than building a stadium in a location that makes most sense for taxpayers.

It's so great that our current elected officials are working so hard to create the L.A. Vikings! I hate long term investment in proven establishments. THANKS you brilliant people!

If tax-payers are going to pay for the stadium, they should be able to vote on it, no matter how small the tax is.

Minneapolis is where the stadium needs to be built. The Arden hills site is just too far in the boonies.

Who are these "business leaders"? And if they are truly business leaders, they should understand capitalism. Capitalism means private costs, private profits. Not taxpayer-financed private profits.
