Roger Goodell called - he said if the state doesn't pay to add a retractable roof, the Vikings are going to move to LA.

Wonderful!! Let the tax bleeding begin on the people least likely to benefit or use the stadium. The residents of Minneapolis.

Good move....local jobs and experienced builder. Now...do it right! And about that roof. Arizona seldom uses its open roof concept. Maybe a wall or window makes more sense.

wait. is the cost 975 million or 682 million? and is a retractable roof 25 million or 50 million? 100% buffer seems a little vague. and really if we are talking 25 mil more, why not? that's a drop in the bucket of this crazy project. i'm excited about a new stadium, but already shaking my head at the waste and bloated spending and estimates this is going to end up with.

Make it look like an old time Viking Ship! Better yet, a sinking Viking ship. That will suit the "Vikes". Oh yeah Minnesota, get the Lakers and North Stars back! Those were cool names!
