Governer Dayton Wants To Call A Special Session In November To Discuss The Vikings Stadium Issue

 According to www.twincities.com, Minnesota Governer Mark Dayton plans to call a special session in November for the Vikings stadium, whether a plan is in place or not.  See link above to view full story.

Three words come to mind when I think of this; It’s about time.

Governer Dayton and Lawmakers seem to finally realize the importance of keeping the Vikings in Minnesota. He had a brilliant quote the other day that I could not agree with more. He says “we’re talking about the next 50 years, not the next 10 games”. He could not be more spot on. Yes, the Vikings are clearly in the re-building process right now at a 1-5 rocord, but it’s not about now. It’s about the future!

As the 19 year old columnist that I am, I want to be able to raise my children, and my children raise THEIR children, in a Minnesota Vikings home, not an L.A Vikings home. Not only that, but moving the Vikings would be a bad financial move for the NFL, and terminate 50+ years of Vikings history in Minnesota. Keep the Vikings here!

    off the subject….all this “suck for luck” talk…you know he doesn’t have to enter the draft, he’s a junior, so there is no guarantee, no matter the draft position…

    Bad financial move for the NFL, perhaps. Bad financial move for Minnesota, ABSOLUTELY. WORST FINANCIAL FAUX PAS EVER.

    Its the Minnesota Vikings.

  4. Tomb... says:

    Alas, a reason to watch the game this week (though I hope the Packers don’t destroy the poor kid), from PFT:

    Christian Ponder is in and Donovan McNabb is out in Minnesota.

    Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier has chosen Ponder as the team’s starting quarterback, Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports.

    The decision comes just six games into a season in which Frazier had insisted McNabb was his starter. But with the Vikings at 1-5 and McNabb not playing well, it was time for Minnesota to see what Ponder, this year’s first-round draft pick, could do.

    The Vikings are now the third team in the last year and a half to give up on McNabb: The Eagles traded McNabb to the Redskins to make room for Kevin Kolb, the Redskins benched McNabb to make room for Rex Grossman, and now the Vikings are benching McNabb to make room for Ponder.

    Given that the Eagles later jettisoned Kolb for Michael Vick, and the Redskins may bench Grossman for John Beck this week, Ponder might need to be a little worried that he’ll get benched for Joe Webb. Being McNabb’s successor hasn’t been easy the last couple years.

    And being McNabb hasn’t been easy the last couple years either.

    Would it be fair to conclude that ownership group has turned its attention away from 2011 Viking and moved on to the stadium deal? McNabb can collect the remaining on the one year, $ 5 million but its over.

    The real stakes are the Arden Hill Stadium where real money is involved. There are four games left after the bye week. Some of the games against AFC teams won’t be sellouts. Nor will there be much national exposure. None of this much matters as long as the stadium deal is approved.
