Quote:
The Minneapolis City Council gave final approval Friday morning to funding a new Vikings stadium in downtown Minneapolis, ending an arduous legislative process that has taken decades to resolve.

Friday's approval, on a vote of 7-6, followed a preliminary vote Thursday afternoon. No votes changed.

Can anyone explain in terms of value what this means to the Vikings franchise.

What kind of revenue does this create in the future?

How much does this increase the franchises value?

Does this vault the Vikings into the upper echelon of NFL franchises?

now that the funding wrangling is finally over, the next step moves on to design concepts.

i like that the Wilfs have stated they want a state of the art facility with a local theme to it. the Metrodome was nothing but an oval box around a rectangular field.

this will be an enormous improvement.
