If the Vikings want to build a stadium someplace other than the Metrodome site, they will have to wait until after next season. Mark Dayton has told Vikings officials that the only workable stadium site this legislative session is the Metrodome, according to the Star Tribune. The site would result in the Vikings playing their games at TCF Bank Stadium, the current home of the Minnesota Gophers football team. Before they can play there, TCF would need upgrades to field an NFL team and it is estimated that would cost at least $50 Million. Zygi Wilf is on route to Minnesota to discuss with Dayton all the details regarding this recent development. In a few short weeks the stadium site options went from many to one. Lets hope that the Wilfs agree with this site because the future of the Vikings depend on it.
