An alternate way to help fund the stadium?




Okay, I've tried privately writing a few people about this idea, but I haven't even gotten feedback about it, so I figure I will publicly post it just to see if it's even a good idea or a bad idea.

I've had an idea for a while now about a different way to help pay for the stadium that is sort of a tax, but it only affects people who want to pay it.
I really don't know how feasible it is, or even if the Vikings organization would go for it (though I don't see why not. It seems like a good idea to me).
Anyway, my idea is Minnesota Vikings license plates. I know they couldn't foot the entire bill, but I think they could attract a lot of money. Say $100 each? Or maybe less. $50 with another $25 annually or something like that? I think it could work. Maybe after a certain amount of money has been reached the money raised by the plates could be split and placed in a fund to renovate the new stadium, and also placed into an additional fund for the state. Maybe the plates could pay for the roads? I'm sure you guys can think of something.

The Denver Broncos already do something similar to this, though for charity instead of paying for a stadium. (http://www.denverbroncos.com/fans/broncos-license-plates.html) I'm sure they're not the only team, either.
