Do you suppose they'll stop when they discover a domed stadium with a new roof and state of the field has already been built in that spot?

Remember, any elected official that shows up in the press coverage of this event-Republican or Democrat needs to be defeated next year. They are planning on you forgetting--we will not forget.

Ya know, if they dig deep enough and get lucky, they might find a real football team somewhere down there.

I can't make it to this event. I have to go to my job. I have a stadium to pay for. Who do they think will be able to be there, other than those on the public trough? No sense of reality.

Too late, tomorrow is the day and nothing can or will be done to stop this historical day in Minneapolis and Minnesota Sports. I am looking forward to the day the doors open! Skol!!!

Watching the MNF game from Seattle. They sure have a nice stadium. Open air and loud. Their fans are engaged. We buy a monstrosity for Ziggy, with a roof so our fans can disengage in comfort. This team hasn't been to a Super Bowl since they moved indoors. They lost the home field advantage they famously embraced. They also lost their real fans. 40 for 60 !

I can't believe that people still think building a billion dollar stadium for a convicted fraudster is a good idea. To use public funds this way borders on the criminal.
