Pleeeeeaaaase pass the bill. It's rough enough losing games, but losing our 50-year old team would be too much. Lets fight about other issues, people. Leave the Vikes alone.
Pleeeaase make the Vikings cover more of the costs.
Please get this done! The Metrodome is the biggest pile in the NFL not only for the players but the fans as well. It's served its purpose but is outdated. Tweak this thing and get it approved!
Call the bluff. Neither the NFL or ownership is going to move the Vikings anywhere. It just won't happen. No other city will pay the ransom either, that is why they couldn't name any of them during the press conference. VOTE NO!
Thanks for passing it through committee. I really don't think this is a bluff. And $475 million is a hefty private contribution. There's plenty of cities in line to "pay the ransom" to have a member of the most elite product in the market. I pay taxes on lots of things I don't support. At least this money pit gives me something to look forward to every week. Something fair weather fans and closet cheese can't understand.
(or should I say stay)
