Free tickets ain't gonna raise much more revenue than the ePullTabs, eBingo or the eMeatRaffle.

Free food and refreshments at tax payer expense OR is this coming out of Ziggies meager budget?

really? is that how they plan on paying for it seeing how they don't know *how* they are going to pay for it yet? too bad the gop of the last legislative session didn't have the backbone the florida legislature has in telling the dolphins to fund improvements themselves.

Wow, this is so exciting! I hope everything is top of the line! I can't wait to buy my PSL and chug $10 beers from my club seat. Who cares that we can't pay for it - the General Fund Stadium is full speed ahead!

We shouldn't be spending money on architects and unveilings until someone figures out how the palace is going to be paid for.

I want them to 'unveil' the 'true' financing package for the stadium. That's a bigger secret than the stadium design!

I have a better idea bredpath; charge the fanboyz 3,000,000 dollars each and then the public won't be gouged for this monstrosity.

I just hope it doesn't look anything like the couple of concept pictures that have been released. All of those were UGLY. Also, why are the Vikes to Hell bent on paying $100 million+ on a retractable roof in a climate where it might only be open 2 or 3 times a season. Put that money somewhere else.

The epulltab sales for April were just released and showed only 13 sites added and the worst performance overall since this began last September. Although the 200 public tickets will likely be restricted to the true believers and face painters, at some point even they are going to have their confidence shaken that this is a coherent stadium plan and they should be the first ones to bring up this subject at the show and tell. You can only trot out pretty drawings and wave purple flags for so long before someone has to admit that this funding scheme is a disaster. By now everyone should be more than irritated that we're being strung along with impossible assurances that this will all miraculously turn around. The only responsible solution is to hit Pause until this entire financing package can be reworked.
