“In the case of building a new Vikings stadium, it was always understood to be roughly 50-50 with the Vikings owners and taxpayers sharing the financial load. Currently, it appears to be closer to a ratio of 90 percent taxpayer and 10 percent owner.”
I suppose it will be nice to have a giant fucking monstrosity of a privately owned stadium as a money collector, to be paid for with tax dollars, as opposed to tuition assistance for college students. I mean, concussions and NFL tickets are high priority in Viking’s Territory; not to mention we have the Superbowl coming 2018- major money maker.
The Vikings constantly win the Superbowl, and other titles, so I can see why they need a new facility. Forget my college debt and the high price of textbooks. This is a must have for Minnesotans. The community doesn’t need more educated book reading people, it needs more football fans, bar none.
It could be worse though, I mean, I am more okay with this than funding wars oversea: (see: Wars vs. Local Education; Al Franken, as the Senate Votes) , I must say… I personally enjoy making the rich richer, and the poor poorer, I know where I stand as a priority; disadvantaged.
