The Other New Stadium

So yes, there is a plan for a new Vikings stadium, a bipartisan scheme that would levy taxes on hotels, sports jerseys and other things, in order to give the Vikes a new home.

Is it a good idea? I don't know. I'd like to see the Vikings remain in town, of course, but they go ahead with the tear-down-the-Dome-and-replace-it-with-a-new-stadium plan, they will have built a pair of publicly financed football stadiums, with a couple of miles of each other, in only four years. It's just insane that the Vikings and Gophers couldn't come together and build one shared field.

I agree with what my dad said- there's no serious justification for a new Vikings stadium, except that the team owners are a little bit less profitable than they'd like to be. He thinks the legislature should just give Wilf a few million dollars a year, but I don't think any politician could ever justify voting for that.

At any rate, I'll be shocked if the bill gets enacted this year, especially since Tim "No New Taxes" Pawlenty would likely return from Iowa or New Hampshire in order to veto it.
