08:03 AM ET 08.30 | Tick, tock. The countdown has begun. With the Minnesota Vikings' preseason home opener against Dallas complete, the team now has one more exhibition and eight regular season games left at the Metrodome before its lease expires on Feb. 1. Owner Zygi Wilf and other team executives are hoping a special session will be called in October so the legislature can approve a proposed $300 million contribution from the state that will get a new stadium built. ... And if that doesn't happen? "I am concerned," about the future, said Lester Bagley, the Vikings vice president of public affairs and stadium development. "There is growing concern within our ownership."

But... the new roof and new turf looked so nice last Saturday night!

Can't imagine not wanting to play another 10 years in those upgraded conditions...

and yet they couldn't beat a defense as bad as the opponent was.

It looks like someone T.P.ed the roof now. they say that's to help with the sound when they have concerts!

I didn't think the Cowboys looked that bad.

I suppose the roof didn't have the desired effect on the taxpayer's willingness to pay up.

that was more reflective of the Vikings offense than the talent on the cowboys defense.

I don't know who the ViQueens back up RB (#27) is but after his performance against the Cowboys, the HOF should start looking for a space to put his shiny bust.


Our run defense is not good, buddy...
