How to pay for part of the new stadium



It's no secret that I've never liked the idea for public money to go to the stadium. However, after reading an article detailing how they will deflate the dome, I have a few ideas to ease the burden of the under performing pull tabs. Sell everything. The State of Minnesota is in a unique position, because the Vikings do not own the Dome nor do they own anything inside. That means, the lockers, roof, seats, etc. can all be sold. I seem to remember something the Bears did one season after they replaced the astroturf in Soldier Field with grass. They cut the turf into little squares and had someone put a logo on it and hand them out somehow. I have found a few of them on Ebay and bought a couple of pieces for family. The State of Minnesota can do something like that. And since the Twins also played there, some of the items might have a bigger market, and therefore higher value...that is value to both baseball and football fans. I don't think that this would pay for the State's complete obligation, but I would expect a significant reduction. Any thoughts?
