Just the crying and complaining over the stadium. Apparently Zygi is stealing from the poor to fill his pockets.

Online extremists are a troll's fantasy.

I think I speak for all of us when I say that this day will be symbolic of some sort of relief.

How is it trollish to want tax money to not subsidize entertainment, but to help the poor, or fix roads?

but his reference to trolling was about folks who are extreme.

This is a football forum, we can't discuss the politics of the issue.

Let's keep the conversation to the stadium and how this impacts the Vikings.

That would be great, let's hope it can be done, because it hasn't managed to be so far.
