"So how does Poss, who now winters in Phoenix, feel about all the criticism aimed at a place he helped build -- that the Metrodome is too old, the stairs are too steep, the concourses are too narrow and the bathrooms are too few?"Actually, the stairs are no steeper than when the Metrodome was new, and sidney heartless was bragging it up! The concourses are no narrower! The bathrooms are too few...TRUE...put some satellites in the opposing team's end zone...It isn't as if much of the game is played down there anyway!!!
"The Vikings, he said, 'have been allowed to co-opt the Legislature, governor and public by grabbing the initiative to dictate process, stadium design concept and cost, and the cost share that the public will contribute.'" EXACTLY! And, it needs to stop now.
Come home, Mr. Poss, we need you. However, the public is not really to blame. Having endured years of brainwashing from those who try to instill the notion in us that the Vikings are an asset rather than just a form of entertainment and that the there would be a serious labor shortage due to the departure of talented people who supposedly live here only because of professional football, what can you expect? After all, who can forget the decline in Minnesota civilization and its economy after the Lakers or North Stars moved? It's a wonder we survived. Oh, wait a minute. That really didn't happen, did it? Darn that brainwashing!
Don Poss tells it like it is, especially with his right on the money pronouncement that any new stadium should be built in Minneapolis. The Arden Hills site might well be suitable for a golf course or race track -- but a Vikings stadium? Please.
