You mean #10.

Either way, I'm actually suprised to even see them up there. Notice that 3 of the 4 NFC North teams are in that list?

Black and Blue baby!

If the Metrodome is number 10, just think what their potential if/when we get a NEW stadium.. Heh.

Oh heck yeah!! Man, I can't wait until they get the new stadium deal worked out.

Nothing says football like sub zero weather in Minnesota, bring back the good old days.

Did anybody else read that the stadium wouldn't normally hold more than like 68,000 people and we'd ahve to make it "expandable" to host a Superbowl (needs like 75,000 or 78,000 as a requirement to host).

Anybody else think that's a bit on the small side, especially since we have sold out EVERY game for the last 7 or 8 years at least?

I mean, I'm biased, I go to LSU and we have 96,000+ capacity, but that just seems low to me for that proposal....

It does seem a little small. I half wonder if we are not trying to "sneak" a stadium in because everyone who is important in a deal is crying like a baby. Smaller bill might be easier to pass.

It's hard for any opposing team to play inside of a Dome.. Why do you think it is so hard for teams to play against the Colts? It gets pretty dam loud in the Metrodome when the crowd is pumped.. I think we should have been in the top 5 myself, but I will take the top 10..
