    OH PLEASE

    Minnesota Carpetbagger and fellow Billionaire Ziggy Wilf when the smoke clears will have less financial exposure than Ross, but yet is being hailed as "saving the Vikings" as not just the city of Mpls, but the state is in for half the costs of the new stadium. IMO, Ross has done and guaranteed enough and especially now in light of the fishy house speaker "Slick Willy" his possible backdoor deal with Braman and his allegiance to the Tampa Bay area, knocking out a competitior for SB consideration, AFAIC, he's off the hook, has, more than most owners, put his money where his mouth is and deserves a thumbs up At this point, if I had my druthers, I'd like to see Ross phase Joe Robbie into a soccer and general outdoor venue while striking a deal with either Broward or Palm Beach County to build a custom stadium that's more centrally accessible to the football loving demographics that in the 60s Joe Robbie reflected

    On March 1, 2012, an agreement was announced by Minnesota governor Mark Dayton for a new stadium to be built on the site of the Metrodome, pending approval by the state legislature and the Minneapolis city council.[37] The $975 million project, half of which will be publicly funded, will be patterned after Lucas Oil Stadium. It will utilize part of the footprint of the Metrodome and will only require the Vikings to play at TCF Bank Stadium during the final year of construction.[38] The agreement met with mixed reaction, and some criticized the proposal as being unfair to taxpayers and a giveaway to team owners.[39]

    On May 10, 2012, the Minnesota Legislature approved funding for a new Vikings stadium on that site. The project is projected to have a $975 million price tag, with the Vikings covering $477 million, the state covering $348 million, and $150 million covered by a hospitality tax in Minneapolis. The city of Minneapolis must pay a total of $678 million over the thirty year life of the deal, including interest, operations and construction costs.[40] The bill was signed by Gov. Dayton,[41] and received the approval of the Minneapolis City Council on May 25, 2012.[42][43] The Vikings will play in the Metrodome through the 2013 season, as construction would not require the immediate demolition of the Metrodome. The Vikings will then move to TCF Bank Stadium until the new stadium is complete.
