Activists asked for the delay so they can work to make sure the word “Redskins” doesn’t appear in the Vikings new home. They will appeal.

a more interesting and possibly productive course would be to petition in Minnesota Federal Court, where rights to lawsuits of collusion in bargaining have rested for some 10 years. seeing as how Joey Browner is part of the case, they could get it heard where the NFL has traditionally had a rough go with "don't wanna change" defenses.

May be they should try upgrading the graduations rate of the American Indians in the Minneapolis Public Schools, which stand at 25%.

OK this is getting beyond ridiculous. This lawyer should be sanctioned for bringing such a frivolous action. I was against the new stadium for multiple reasons but something this stupid would be enough to get me to support the stadium. Fast food is ruining the health of all Americans but you can bet McDonalds and the other fast food chains will be advertising and serving food at the new stadium.....maybe we should stop the stadium from being built in protest.

This one is easy. The NFL allows the Washington Team to use a name that is clearly racist and should be changed. Why don't we make sure the Washington Team is forbidden from playing at this new taxpayer provided complex. All Washington-Vikings games will need to be played in Washington.

Funny thing is because much of the income created by the Vikings goes into a pool that is shared by the visiting team and the entire NFL including the Redskins. So by championing a stadium for the Vikings, Dayton is increasing their revenues thus increasing the amount of money that the Redskins make.
