Keep on top of the "Wheeler Dealers"!

Stand tough Mr. Dayton. That the Wilf's are pulling this out of their hat as yet another way to minimize their investment into the project while still being in the position to benefit the most financially from this only gives more support to the many reasons I quit watching the NFL and the Vikings a few years back after being a fan since season one. These guys are really something. Incorrigible.

Ah sweet justice. And here I thought the Vikes were honorable and doing this for the fans. Of course it's a rich people's stadium. I can't afford to take four people to a game and that will be even more so when the new stadium is built. I really don't think the gov. is going to pull the plug on this deal, not after the time and money he spent ramming this down our throats.

Let's cancel the stadium. Call your legislator!

PSL's are nothing new. A little buyers remorse here?

good on you, governor for holding their feet to the fire.

Whether, or Not, a "Premium Seating Fee" -- or whatever it's called -- is charged, doesn't really matter to me. I doubt that I'll be able to afford to attend any of the Vikings games, or other events, anyway. My guess is that only the RICH fans will be able to afford to attend. And that leaves me upset that the State of Minnesota, and the City of Minneapolis, are paying for $500+ MILLION of the People's Stadium, when it's more like the "Exclusive" RICH People's Stadium, no doubt!

Arthur Blank wants to build a new stadium in Atlanta and wants taxpayers to foot 100 percent of the bill. We should feel thrilled that Zigi didn't ask for it all...sheesh... the nerve of some of these owners is unreal.

never thought I would agree with one word this man says, but once and while even a blind squirrel gets a nut.

Dayton is so delusional he doesn't even understand that the state funding ANY part of this stadium IS passing the costs of the new stadium not only on the fans but on every citizen in the state. That's what happens when you never work an honest day in your life.
