I haven't seen anyone mention how the first picture looks like 5 Viking horns lined up next to each other.

wow, you're right!

excellent visual intuitive perception for the Kansas dood....

other than i think it's six horns, perhaps for the Vikes entering their sixth decade as a team.

There is an interior sketch of the glass dome idea up on their site now. I can't seem to link to it directly but if you click on the Vikings logo (The People's Stadium?Laughing ) and then click on the 3rd picture in the lower right you will see it.

Ya, if that can be pulled off then screw a retractable roof IMO. Having this design would likely put us alone and on top of stadium designs not only for the NFL, but the entire world. Can you imagine what a game would look like if there was a blizzard happening during a game in this dome? The scenery would be amazing.

That's a pretty amazing dome.

I just hope they don't have a replay screen like the Cowboys do. I feel it infringes upon the field by going across it, and it doesn't provide a replay to the people who need it most, people sitting on either end of the field.

Other than that it look pretty amazing. I hope they go for really steep stands, that way the fans are closer to the field, and the stadium feels more compact.

I would love a stadium like this.

There are screens on both ends of the big screen too for those in the end zone seats.

That clears that up. Still, if you just have the screens on at each end of the field, everyone can still see them, and you don't have a huge screen hovering over the field.

The NFL is a copycat league, and that goes for everything, not just the play on the field. These owners have such big egos that they aren't going to completely outdone by one another. And Jerry Jones set the bar with his stadium and it's features. Now it's all about "keeping up with the Joneses".

I wouldn't be surprised to see the Vikings stadium have a giants video screen, especially when it's a feature that puts people in seats, something that the NFL is trying to improve. And I also wouldn't be surprised to see a bar/ fan zone that looked into the tunnel when the team runs onto the field.

As a sports fan, this just doesn't make any sense to me. You go to the stadium to see the players live, out there on the field. If you want to see them on a screen, just stay home. Surprised

The big screen might add entertainement(whatever that is), but it doesn't add anything to the actual football experience.

Except people are staying home because they can see the field better. Big screens ARE important.

I'm just going by my personal opinion here. When I go to the stadium of my local soccer team (AFC Ajax 4x CL winner), I go there to see the players out on the field, not to watch the replays on the screen (which are tiny in size compared to the Cowboys stadium I'll admit).

Just personal preference. I don't see the point in all those fancy frills that have nothing to do with the actual game. Just build a solid stadium, with good stands, spacy arcades/walkways, a place that breathes football.

PS: From what I've gathered here and there, some of the more diehard Cowboys fans aren't all that pleased with their stadium. Too much casual fans, no real homefield advantage.
