Surprise! Lambeau Field Toughest NFL Venue

Lambeau Field

Seriously, whoever came up with the idea to rank the 10 toughest venues in the NFL must be a brain surgeon. When you consider the venue itself, the team playing it and the fans sitting in it, Lambeau Field is clearly the hands-down winner, which is exactly what the geniuses at ESPN found out this […]

Vikings Stadium Plans Down The Tube?

It was destined to fail, and it looks like opponents of the latest Vikings stadium proposal have found a way to fuck things up again.

I’m going to skip all the usual shots we like to take at Minnesota Vikings fans, today. Well, maybe not all of them. In case you haven’t heard, the Vikings want to move out of the shithole known as the Metrodome they currently play in. The team has two competing plans for a new stadium.

Vikings Stadium Debate Won’t Go Away

  Another new way to fund a Vikings stadium is revealed.

The already controversial plan to raise as […]

Vikings’ Shithole Collapses

A fitting metaphor for their season. The shithole that the Minnesota Vikings call home, the Metrodome, collapsed overnight. Or at least the roof did. There is now a hole in the middle of it from the build-up of snow — the Cities reportedly got close to 20 inches yesterday. The Vikings game against the New […]

Honestly, this list could probably contain several hundred entries, but I decided to whittle it down to 10. So, without further ado, here are the top 10 reasons we hate the scum of the NFL — the Minnesota Vikings fan. 10. Worst. Stadium. Ever. Now that County Stadium is no more, I can easily say […]

Ooooooooooh! The Vikings Get Tough

Zygi Wilf

No, I’m not talking about the Minnesota Vikings football team. They’ll always be a bunch of non-Super-Bowl-winning pansies. I’m talking about the Vikings’ ownership, who issued some sort of ultimatum to the state on Tuesday after the state legislature predictably did nothing to finalize a deal for a new Vikings’ stadium before the legislative session […]

No New Movement Likely On Vikings’ Stadium Until 2011

Metrodome

The Minnesota Vikings’ quest for a new stadium isn’t likely to be addressed any further until next year.

As we predicted then, the bill, which had two options for […]

Vikings Stadium Bill – Why The New Options Won’t Work

A bipartisan group of state lawmakers on Monday unveiled the long-awaited bill that could free the Minnesota Vikings from the hell that is the Metrodome. As expected, the legislation outlines two ways to fund a $791 million new Vikings stadium. The first uses existing Minneapolis city taxes to build a new stadium on the site […]

The bill will include two options for funding the stadium. The first involves building a new Vikings’ stadium on the […]

Stadium-Hungry Vikings Whore Out Jared Allen

The Minnesota Vikings are getting aggressive in their crusade for a new stadium. Team owner Zygi Wilf met privately Thursday with state lawmakers at St. Paul’s posh University Club to discuss possible stadium bills, while Jared Allen spent that evening being, well, Jared Allen. The defensive end/attention whore/douche bag has become something of a poster […]

Vikings Stadium Deal Heating Up?

There’s no formal legislation, and lawmakers still need to pay for state schools and other necessities, but efforts to build a new Minnesota Vikings stadium appear to be heating up in the state Legislature. A top Democratic senator told the Star-Tribune most of the pieces of a stadium proposal were “pretty much drafted” and that […]

The Vikings – They Really Don’t Get It

Metrodome

The Minnesota Vikings organization is plowing ahead with its fruitless efforts at getting a new publicly-funded stadium. The team now has 10 lobbyists working at the state Capitol on its behalf as it seeks the public’s help to pay for a Metrodome replacement. Seven of them registered with the state this month alone. Team official […]

Take the Metrodome, Please!

Minnesota state Rep. Paul Kohls is proposing the state sell the Metrodome to the Minnesota Vikings for $1. In exchange, the Vikings would have to agree to stay in the state for 20 years or face a $5 million fine, which is a drop in the bucket for an NFL team. This comes on the […]

Majestic Realty Co. managing partner John Semcken said the […]

New Vikings Stadium Options Unveiled; Team Notably Absent

The pipe dream in print.

A consulting firm hired by the group that operates the Metrodome unveiled a cheaper plan for a new Vikings’ stadium Thursday. The new pricetag? About $870 million if construction started next year. That’s about $84 million less than the most recent figure of $954 million, primarily because of lower product and labor costs, according to […]

Don’t Go To the Bathroom in the Metrodome

You could probably sleep in here if you had to

We’ve covered the continuing saga of the Minnesota Vikings and their desire to get out of the Metrodome and into a new stadium extensively, but here’s some evidence of just how bad that stadium really is. The Minnesota Twins, the other resident of the Metrodome, will begin play at a new, non-domed, non-relic-of-yesteryear stadium next […]
