Check out ESPN's Adam Schefter's article today:
"In Week 8 against the Saints, Falcons running back Michael Turner carried 20 times for 151 yards and one touchdown. Two weeks ago against the Saints, Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams carried 21 times for 149 yards and two touchdowns. This past Sunday, Rams running back Steven Jackson carried 26 times for 131 yards and a touchdown. So in three games, three premier running backs combined for 431 rushing yards, at an average of 6.43 yards per carry. As opportunistic as the Saints' defense has been, its 20th-ranked run defense has been spotty. For New Orleans to get where it wants this season, its run defense must improve if it harbors any hopes of slowing the Vikings' Peterson in a playoff matchup."
Only problem with your theory is the Vikings 21st ranked pass defense. Playing against few premier WRS
Dome needs to be replaced

Yes, with your money & the billionaire owner's money not mine that is for sure!!
But if afterward you guys can get them to build me a taxpayer paid new home I'd help.
So if the vikings leave I'll let you cover the 26 Million of direct taxes from the vikes that will be gone from the local government budget. I don't want that missing tax revenue coming from my pocket book. Also mr "what about me", we will let you go do all the charity work that the vikes do if they leave. So your plate will be pretty busy mr "what about me" if the vikes leave. Have fun!

Not for the fans and Zigi that want a new stadium. The small tax increase in the Twin Cities should make up the difference. Go Vikings.

Whether you will or won't contribute is not up to you. You, like everyone else, will do exactly as you're instructed.

Ok, it just hit me who has been stonwalling the stadium for the last ten years; duh!!!!!!!!!! The Metrodome has been making huge profit for SOMEBODY!!!! These people on the Sports Commission have been living large and they do not want to lose a good thing. "if we could only squeeze a couple more years out of this dump, we could really be set for retirement." They must be worried about getting cut out of the loop.

Guess again --

The Metropolitan Sports Commission is pushing for the new stadium. They'll be operating it. Check the Star Trib -- that group just led a tour of legislators through the Dome today to show them first hand why they should approve a new stadium.

NOBODY has been 'stonewalling' the new stadium effort for the past 10 years. When the Dome was built, the Vikings signed a 30 year lease. That was 28 years ago. They haven't even finished the original lease yet.

One more thing,even if they go to LA which they won't but for sake of argument let's say they do; the only way you could afford tickets to go to the games is to up your street hustle, and with all that extra work hustling male 'johns' your jaws are gonna be too sore to cheer for the Vikes come game time.

Worthless troll from a worthless state. Why are you even in this discussion? If we want to talk about welfare and imbred crack heads, we'll care about your opinion snoop. And come up with some new material before trolling back here. you have said those same ignorant comments, word for word, to so many people.

Topix needs to clean house.
