So let me see if I can figure out where this stadium issue is going
The Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission, the owner/operator of the Metrodome, wants the Vikings to extend their lease, or they're raising the rent $4 million/yr. The Vikings are so pissed with that move that they boyvott the unveiling of the 'Metrodome Next' project put forth by the MSFC, and say they can't endorse it at this time.
It seems to me that the Vikings are looking for an Anoka County-type deal that cuts out the state government and the MSFC. With Target Field operated by the Minnesota Ballpark Authority, it would seem that's exactly what Wilf is trying to do, because he wants the MSFC out of the picture after the lease extension/rent raise stunt, and wants them to die on the vine, which is what will happen if he gets a new stadium built somewhere other than where the Metrodome currently is.
So, here's my question: If Wilf gets a county like Anoka to fund the stadium, similar to what the Twins did with Hennepin County, do you think he will he work to ensure that the MSFC is NOT a part of the deal, and what will he do if the Legislature mandates that they are?
