Get the stadium? Fine. How about getting a decent team to play in it?

Why does the field look like a sheet of ice?

May 27, 2012  11:13 AM ET

Covered is it? Had enough of those cold oil-heater winters?

May 27, 2012  11:28 AM ET

They haven't even started breaking ground and it's late already??

The Vikes can't seem to catch a break on much of anything, lately.

Wow. Clicked on the article thinking there must be more to the story. Amazingly there isn't.

Not sure how they can claim a delayed opening four years prior to deadline. Sounds like they need a new PE.

Apparently the pyramids in Geeza where built on spec and where several Pharoahs late.

May 27, 2012  07:03 PM ET

That's gonna be a delay of game penalty right there.

May 27, 2012  07:24 PM ET

Anybody for 2018? Do hear 2019? Oh heck just make it 2020, a nice round number.

Someone from Indy commenting on the need to get a better team to play in the new stadium. Wow....ironic.

It's covered but open air stadium. It will be still be cold as every MN winter inside the stadium, just without the snow and the rain.
