I'm sure most of the students at Minnesota will agree that building a stadium for the football team on campus would be a good idea. Sure it will cost a lot of money and a lot of hours of work, but in the end the outcome will be for the best. It is easy to look at something like this and say "that’s a good idea", it will bring more students to the games and more people to the U. The problem is not with the Gophers moving out of the Metrodome, the problem its that not only do the Vikings also want a new stadium, but the Twins do too. Now the idea is not all bad, if the Vikings stay in the Metrodome they are projected to fall $11 million below the leagues average revenue. However, the team should quit complaining because it could be worse. For example; they could have had their stadium and city destroyed by a hurricane. Also maybe the lack of revenue is not only to be blamed on the Metrodome, maybe it's just me but I think the fact that they have not done very well in a long time has a part to play in the lack of revenue. As for the twin’s new stadium, it also has its pros and cons. It’s almost a sure thing that they will get it in the near future. They have been diligently raising funds of a long time, from various financers and the tax payers of MN.
(Not me I'm from Wisconsin Whoo Hoo!) So if the Twins are getting a new stadium, than the Vikings lose one of their biggest arguments (that they don't want to share the Metrodome). I am not from this area so mine is an outsiders opinion which is good and bad, I also don't have to pay for the new stadiums, so it ultimately comes down to the MN tax payer, I just think they should be better informed than what they here from the teams that will only tell the reasons why building the stadiums is a good idea.
