Our Opinion: Stadium


The Minnesota Vikings are a tremendous amenity for the Twin Cities and, even in the bad years, a rallying point of pride for the entire state.

That being said, we continue to oppose the use of any state general tax fund dollars to build a stadium for a wealthy NFL team owner. Minnesota has too many pressing needs to dole out money to a stadium that most outstate Minnesotans will never have the opportunity to visit.
