Please, Please, PLEASE Do not pick Populous! Design build sucks and will be done on the CHEAP! That's the HOK i.e. Populous way! You will be stuck with a "NEW" Metrodome if they are chosen! Don't take my word for it, check it out yourself online, look at their stadiums and ballparks they are cookie-cutter!

who wants to guess on how much over the 975M this hog goes. I'm thinking the over-under for it will be in the 1.2B range.

You have to go with Populous! Target field and Excel are amazing and typically regarded as one of the best venues in their respective sports. TCF Bank is really nice too except for the fact that you know.... the Gophers play there!

Good job Ted, shoveling that public money is what you do best.

Waiting for the retractable roof to magically materialize. Oh, joy, we will be so surprised and grateful, we won't even bother to ask where all that extra money came from.

Ted Mondale, acting like a good Democrat, doesn't even bring a MN based firm in for an interview. It's Minnesota taxpayer's money, so he might as well ship it out of the state. In layman's terms it's called outsourcing.

So, there are no local companies worthy of this endeavour? Nothing like sending OUR money out of the state and leaving the locals to pay for it.

Excel Energy Center,a top 3 NHL home for the Wild,and Target Field,2010's Top Stadium Experience by ESPN Magazine,are both Populous projects. We should all be so awful. Let's get real,Polyanna.
