well you never know what will happen. I think if the owners put of a fair amount of cash to get a stadium we should have a new one built soon.

they could have a deal in place by then for a new stadium, but there is no way that it could be finished if it has a dome

I don't think by '08, I think by the next year maybe.

Ziggy said that he will honor the Dome contract through 2011, but I think he sees this as his best chance, and will do what needs to be done to get us a stadium. I'm tellin' ya, Ziggy is the man.

not by 2008...maybe by 2010. It will take at least 2 yrs to get it approved and probably 3 years to build.

As a Minnesotan, I want a new stadium for the Vikes,Twins, and the U within 5-6 years.
I think they should make it be a huge outdoor Viking community that'll be named after Bud Grant.
IMO, all 3 teams need there own stadium, and I wouldn't mind them being near each other, so that The X is also close to them.

Hey, let the taxpayers flip the bill ... I dont live in MN anymore ... j/k

It wont happen before 2011 and the Metrodome lease is up. Dang, the friggin state govt just shut down in July, they are not going to give up any amount of money to make Ziggy flip the rest of the bill for a new stadium.

I predict an outdoor stadium finished in 2010...

Dome with retractable roof and the fans get to vote on game day if it's open or not. That would be choice.

Much as we'd like a new stadium quickly I can't see it happening as soon as 2008. Zygi seems decisive but he won't want to rush something as expensive and important as this. The team is ok until 2011 but obviously work would have to start on a stadium before then and, as has been said, I expect the Minn Sports Commission to get the last bit of revenue out of the Dome before they are willing to let the team go, so don't look for the opening game at a new stadium to be before then.

If we do get one built by 2008, I wonder if Ziggy would buy out the lease.

Ziggy will get it done and it will be an outdoor facility.

Personaly I think they should build an outdoor stadium up near International Falls. Heck we could have snow on the oppener.

That may work for you to make it to the games, but it would be very hard for me and many others to make it to the game. All that snow would be fun!

We are dead last in value in the NFL. The metrodome sucks donkey balls. I sure do hope Ziggy uprights our ship and gives us a new stadium!

Oops, I was the guy who voted for "I hope not I like the Metrodome," accidentally of course. I thought it was saying I hope a new stadium isn't like the Metrodome. Anyway, I think a new stadium will be built, probably outdoors by the way Zigi is talking. I just don't think it will be built by 2008.
