Stadium in trouble?
Governor Dayton Threatens to Nix Vikings Stadium
By Jay Caldwell 5 hours ago
The Vikings stadium could be in some trouble. According to Mike Florio of Profootballtalk.com Governor Mark Dayton isnít happy with the Vikings to 2 reasons. One is the Vikings willingness to play home games in London while the Stadium is being constructed and two because the Vikings are planning to raise their portion of the teamís contribution toward the stadium by raising season-ticket costs with seat lisencing fees.
Dayton said ďThe projectís strong support came from many regular Minnesotans, not just rich Minnesotans, because they believed the Vikings are also their team. If a new stadium were to betray that trust, it would be better that it not be built.Ē
The Vikings were off the radar of Los Angeles as far as teamís that could move there but would be right back on the radar if something canít be figured out.

This is only the market playing itself out.

Dayton should shut his pie hole. He already approved this.
The stadium is not in jeopardy, it's "man of the people" bluster.

Dayton signed the agreement, and PSLs were clearly spelled out in it... as was a London game.
I'm more concerned that voters will let him get away with "I didn't read the contract." That, IMHO, is ridiculous.
