Vikings Stadium News Coming Later Today

Posted by Mike Wobschall on May 3, 2010 – 6:40 am

Just a heads up to stay tuned to today and throughout the week for developments in plans for a new Vikings stadium. There is a press conference this morning at 9:00 a.m. at the State Capitol and that’s where much of those developments will originate.

We’ll have complete coverage of that press conference – including video from the event – as well as Vikings reaction to it.

So although there won’t be much happening on the Blog this morning, be sure to stay tuned later in the morning and into the afternoon for all the latest stadium developments. Also remember that you can follow us on Twitter – our account is @VikingsFootball.

    Why not build the stadium in Blaine where the air is clean and fresh. Where the wet lands have been resolved!!

    the problem is that no one is willing to pay. 70 % of the tax payers in minnesota would flip if they had to pay so much as 5 dollers towards it but would be mad if the vikings left. but the vikings have no choice they cant maintain a a team while losing revenue because they havent got the seating.

    P.S. should start a donation fund of some sort where the people of minnesota who care about the vikings could donate 1 or 2 or maybe 5 dollers towards the stadium.

    Get the Indians (casino) involved. They have lots of money!

    The vikings have built a dynesty in Minnesota, ever since they started playing at the old metroploitan stadium in the sixties. just give them a decent playing field and they’ll never disapoint the fans or the state of Minnesota. I for one am willing to donate as much as I can, for the new stadium, I’m on Social Security Disability and have been since 2002 but I tell right now any body from Minnesota wether transplanted such as I or any other die hard Minnesotan would be happy to give their change or dollars to help build the new stadium.
    Just let me know where to send my donation. By the way I live in Portland OR and Iknow many Viking fans hear that would be happy to donate to the cause.
    Also have you thought about selling seat in the new stadium sort of like what the Packers have done in their stadium.

    I am a tax paying citizen and I have no problem with a stadium tax. Lets think about the revenue the Vikes bring in. From what I here it is between 25 and 45 million a year. If you divide 500 million by 40 (years) you get 12.5 million. Now that sounds like a good investment weather your a fan or not.

    I guess the state of Minnesota has not learned its lesson yet- 1st the Lakers, then the North Stars, now the Vikings…. same colors as LA Lakers, so the fans there can wear either Lakers or Vikings stuff to the games.
    Too bad, but without a new stadium, the Vikings are history in MN.

    My only question is why build them a new stadium? We’re spending money we dont have. If they win a superbowl then I would see a reason to build them a new stadium. Simple cause and effect. If they have a reward to push for, I think that they would pull through but in the mean time, I advise against it.
