Can they put TV's above all of the urinals, so we don't have to miss a minute of action?

Big of them. But then, it is they who are deriving 100% of the benefit.

I bet the fans who were used to testify during the legislative session feel betrayed by the owners now. What a fiasco.

Of that $503 million, over $100 million is an interest-free loan from NFL and since the value of the franchise has instantly increased by over $400 Million just by announcing the new stadium, the Wilf's really aren't ponying up anything. They're just borrowing against house money.

Hey Taxpayers - I want to build a house. I only plan on using it one day a week, I'm going to charge you to come watch me use it and I need you to foot half the bill for it. We cool?

I guess the Vikings will have to raise the seat license fees. You wouldn't want the Wilf's to pony up any of their own money.

All other complaints around this stadium aside, I have no problem with the team raising their stake in things. This is good news!
