Vikings stadium ruling contradicts Rybak charter claim
A Hennepin County judge has determined that the Vikings stadium deal would have triggered a Minneapolis charter requirement to hold a public vote, contradicting repeated statements from Mayor R.T. Rybak and his city attorney when they were selling the plan in 2012.

Are you telling me that the Mayor Archie over stepped his authority and obligated the citizens of Minneapolis to hundreds of millions of dollars of corporate welfare for a sleaze bag billionaire carpetbagger from New Jersey?
I am shocked!

I don't suppose there is any hope of stopping this project...
I don't mind a stadium if the owner actually pays for a very large part of it with something other than seat licenses.

Understand, dear old Ziggy and family are only in the stadium deal to make ALL KINDS OF CASH!!
The public paying for a large part of the stadium will NEVER KNOW how much Ziggy makes. You know the weak minded woman in charge of the stadium commitee met face to face with the NFL and knows they will stand behind Ziggy's stadium deal if Ziggy goes to jail and is fined for all his net worth in the NJ racketeering case Ziggy was found guilty in.
In the mean time Ziggy is getting seating revenue, a soccer franchise monopoly, and who knows what else. All that info is secret you know. We wouldn't want to public to know all the details of the deal they will be paying for.
A crock of brown stuff!!!

What's really funny is that the public officials involved in the stadium deal are all being made fools of and they don't even know it.
Of course the taxpayers are being fleeced by Ziggy and he knows it.
