A lot can be said for the State of Minnesota and Governor Mark Dayton. They are trying EVERYTHING in their power to get Zygi Wilf a new venue. Proposals have come and gone without much luck, and the whispers are starting to echo from Los Angeles where $1 Billion venue is set to open in 2015 without a team.

The latest proposal calls for a stadium to be built at the location of the current MetroDome. What while that do? One, it will save money as the state will not have purchase new land for the deal. Two, it will force the Vikings to play at the University of Minnesota for a coupe years while the Dome is razed and rebuilt.

The pressure is on for the state to figure something out, or they could lose their crown jewel.
