Vikings need more than one boring new stadium: Comment Of The Day
The new Vikings stadium bill dropped on Friday, posing in part as a jobs bill, and with the requirement that the team pay for just one-third of the facility's construction cost is already grating on our commenters' nerves.
What's wrong with the Metrodome? (Oh, wait.)
"Yeah...they should build a new stadium, then tear it down, and then build it again. That will create even MORE jobs," says "green23."
Then they can build a couple extra stadiums so that the Vikings don't have to play all EIGHT of those home games in the same old boring stadium. You know what that means: MORE "benefit" and MORE jobs! Whatever "benefit" we would get from a new stadium could be obtained from the Metrodome. It's good enough for eight days a year. I've seen games there, and it seemed as if people had a good time.
What you think? Should the Vikings pay more for their stadium? Should taxpayers be on the hook for any of it all? Let us know in the comments.
