How about we take the $330Million we annually we spend on social services for illegal aliens and just cut them off the dole? That could pay for the stadium and allow the state to reduce taxes!

How about we create a new 10% tax on all money wired out of the country from Minnesota and use that to fund the stadium?

"Any software product is sure to be delayed." You can download open source "bingo" software from the internet for FREE RIGHT NOW! It's not like BINGO requires newly developed proprietary processes or sophistcated algorithms. For God's sake man BINGO is currently deployed in almost every small town VFW across the entire country!

Instead of going after social programs, emtorisgoo, why don't we just put a surtax on Viking players and management? The player salaries for this year are $105,263,631. Management is at least that. Let's say conservatively $200 million. At 10% over 30 years of the contract the State and City wouldn't have to pay anything. Wilf and his kids can play their silly game and not be a financial burden on anyone.

Can't wait to help the team out by playing the bingo game. Sounds like fun.

"Can't wait to help the team out ".................Gosh!!! I forgot that the Vikings were financially destitute!! I'm sorry for being so thoughtless.
