Vikings stadium bill makes like Lazarus in the legislature

Killed in a House committee this morning, the bill to build a new Vikings stadium found new life in a Senate committee this afternoon.

The new version incorporates Personal Seat Licenses as a mechanism for raising money beyond the $264 million that the Vikings will pay, according to WCCO.com.  Previous plans to use a variety of taxes and to foist bond payments onto the city of Minneapolis as of 2020 have been scuttled.

Meanwhile, the Vikings claimed in a House committee hearing that they are losing money (which could have CBA ramification), and the team declined to answer whether the project can wait another year (which means that it can).  Also, Governor Tim Pawlenty suddenly seems to be less interested in the stadium bill and more interested in fixing the state’s deficit, given a Wednesday Minnesota Supreme Court decision finding that Pawlenty exceeded his authority by cutting $5.3 million from a state program.

So while progress is being made, there’s a long way to go — and there isn’t much time to get something done in 2010.  The legislative session ends this month.

    First the Lakers moved from Minneapolis to Los Angeles…50 years later, the Vikings will follow suit.
    Thier colors are already purple and gold and I can see Ziggy, Chilly, and Brett in BRentwood….

    NEW STADIUMS
    Apply a tax on the NFL NETWORK and all merchandise sold pertaining to the NFL.
    Make all NFL games pay per few ( for the amount of the tax) that are covered by all stations local or otherwise broad-cast.
    You will have some freeloaders complaining about the cost increase but, hey, if you want to watch the game and have new stadiums what way better than having the people pay that want the sport, pay for it

    The legislators finally are aware that Minnesota Viking fans just aren’t worthy of getting another stadium after the bitter sore ass displays from the viking fans. Why reward bad behavior?
    They’re going to do the right thing and invest in schools and roads, a more proven “winning” philosophy that should help improve the fanbase’s collective intelligence.

  7. icedawg9 says: May 5, 2010 3:23 PM

    Whether it gets done this year or not, a bill will be passed within the next year. The Vikings will be in Minnesota forever, no reason to move them. They always sell out the stadium and even though they have had some troubles as of late (the years before last year), I blame it on the Metrodome itself. I go to many games but I would almost rather watch it on TV rather than going there. It brings a very uncomfortable fan experience with small bathrooms, small hallways, and crammed seats.

    PSL’s are the worst thing in the world. I’ll tell you this, they do PSL’s and no regular fan will ever go for tickets. This team needs the regular fan to fill up the new stadium, corporations can’t do it all by themselves.
    If this team goes with the PSL’s, I will cancel my season tix!! I am not gonna pay for the right to pay for season tix!! That is the biggest piece of bullshit marketing that I have ever seen!!

    “Exceeded his authority” to CUT from the state budget?!?!
    Funny, why don’t we have such judicial fights and strict court rulings when politicians “exceed their authority” by ADDING TO THE STATE BUDGET?!?
    No wonder we’re all broke–spend spend spend like drunken liberals on shore leave.
    Court-supported spending, at that.
    What do they care? They’re just sticking our kids (YOUR kids, and mine) with the bill.
    If they really want to pay for this new stadium, let them run a year-long fundraiser, the way small-time schools, churches, hospitals, little league teams, and everyone else (not sucking the govt. teat) has to do when they need a new field/building/whatever.
    I know this is a novel idea to legislators, but let them actually WORK for it.
    If it really matters for Minny residents and Biqueen fans, they’ll shell out and donate for it.
    Let em have a Jerry Lewis style telethon–Jared Allen can be the headlining Down’s Syndrome kid.

    can’t believe an entire state can’t figure out a way to build a stadium. love my packers, but love hating the vikes too..right where they are. too good of a rivalry to mess with.

  12. Smooth J says: May 5, 2010 3:43 PM

    In years past, they’ve had to give away thousands of tickets to local businesses in order to maintain a sell out. If they have trouble selling out a game with regular ticket prices, why would they assume that people would want to pay several thousand dollars for the right to a seat that they weren’t sure that they wanted in the first place?

    As a Saints fan who cant stand anything about the Vikings, I still think it would be a shitty move, when you have teams like the Jags, and the Rams, who couldnt sellout there stadiums if they where giving away a house to every fan, staying put. The league should step in just like they did for us after the storm…

  15. Leroy'sButler says: May 5, 2010 3:49 PM

    icedawg9 – what are you smoking. The Vikes do not sell out every game. The fans are fair weather fans. Just wait until Favre throws his last pass (an interception by the way), and enjoy your blackouts. The silver lining is that I’m sure the networks will telecast the Packer games instead. Enjoy.

    But, will we see Green Bay in the playoffs led by a dude that’s managed, what, ONE playoff appearance in 5 years and choked against a pretty-much hapless Cards’ squad??? After all, since Mutt-n-Jeff took over, have the Packers ever managed back-to-back winning seasons???
    I am confident that as the years go by, you’re gonna change your tune on Brett Favre.

    The five Lombardi Trophies in the case at Valley Ranch (with the corresponding NONE ZERO ZIP NADA in the Viqueen’s trophy case) are just the latest exemplar of how once again the ‘queens find it oh so hard to do what the Cowboys and Jerry Jones find it oh so easy to do – win and build a decent stadium. When even the Twinkies and the Golden Gophers balk at playing in your little pumped-up (no pun intended) crackerbox, you know you’ve got problems.
    Yeah guys, y’all should move to LA. That way, with all the Republican politicians getting caught giving sexual favors in airport men’s rooms, at least you won’t be the only laughingstock in Southern Cali.

    Ahh, I love the misinformed, uneducated yambags that post here (I’d call them haters, but that giving them to much credit).
    The stadium will get built in Minnesota, as we have said all along. Its more a matter of “when” than “if”.
    They tried to squeeze this into the last session of the house. Public opinion in the state is overridingly for a stadium. Once this stirs over the summer, the heat on the state reps will be on, especially with todays vote.

  20. HarrisonHits says: May 5, 2010 4:11 PM

    “the Vikings claimed in a House committee hearing that they are losing money”
    Yeah right and I have a bridge to sell them. Any good accountant can cook the books to make it look like a company making a ton of money is losing money.
    I don’t believe at all that the Vikings are losing money. This is BS from the team to try and twist the process their way. I hope they do not approve any public funding in any form. Not only for the Vikes but for any team trying to extort hundreds of millions from the local area.

    Agreed! I am a season ticket holder and I live in Los Angeles. No, I dont want to hear any stupid “they are moving to LA to make you feel better” jokes because its just not going to happen. If PSLs are put in place then I too will cancel my season tickets on the 50 yard line. The right to pay for season tickets should be the fact that the seats are available and NOT because you can afford to PAY for that right.

    As I said previously, if they required every PFT Viking fan to place a dollar in a jar every time they resort to gay sex insults, display their fascination with feces, or use the same old uninspired and unoriginal Packer namecalling, the stadium would be built in less than one month. The example (above) is yet but another of a Viking fan with a limited vocabulary, a juvenile mindset, and too much time on his hands. Why build a stadium for idiots like this? Building pay-by-the-hour rubber rooms on every street corner would make more sense. Poor frustrated morons.

    A sellout is a sellout. Sorry, I dont recall seeing an asterisk next to the word ‘sellout’. And you are right, Minnesota is leaps and bounds ahead of Wisconsin in terms of culture, heritage, history, and education. Heck, classrooms in Wisconsin probably still carry history books that were last updated in 1940. Congrats.

  37. sand0 says: May 5, 2010 5:21 PM

    Regardless this is only a first step. This bill in its current form isn’t “the one”. The Vikings cannot leave until after next season and if the legislature can get something framed in by then there would be no reason to go.
    In addition, there isn’t a stadium ready to take them for the 2012 season. Plus the NFL isn’t going to be in a big hurry to move a popular team when there are San Diego’s and Jacksonville’s and Oakland’s out there struggling to sell out games.
    The Vikings are one modern stadium away from profitability. There are teams in this league that couldn’t turn a profit in any stadium.
    As much as everyone likes to talk like the Vikings have Minnesota by the balls it works equally in the other direction. Look at the fact that the Vikes were willing to foot 1/3 of the bill. That seems like a small amount but it is more team contribution than most recent NFL stadiums that were built. Not all, but most.

    And I’d hardly call coming back from being down by three TD’s to tie the game “choking”, but whatever. I guess I’m more of a glass is half full kind of guy.

    Why is the government involved?
    If the viklings just sold a Personal Seat License for $50,000 a seat, 4 season tickets would only cost $200,000 plus the tickets.
    They could build a stadium better than Cowboys Stadium with that money.
    But these are vikling customers.
    No waiting list for season tickets.
    They did not even sell out the first home playoff game in many years last year even when Eagles fans bought thousands of tickets. Attendance was only 61,000.
    The local Fox network affiliate for the last several years been purchasing just enough tickets to lift the black out.
    Look how many stupid vikling people incorrectly think absence of a black out some how means they “sold out”!
    Unless they sell the whole stadium on a PSL basis it will never work.
    Why would people pay for a PSL when they can walk up on game day and purchase tickets on without a PSL?
    If they can’t sell game tickets in advance, how can they sell PSL’s?
    The truth is that the viklings have never done anything for Minnesota,
    they have a terrible relationship with the public, and a clear majority of the state’s voters will not care if the viklings move.

    Nice one, Contra. Your best yet. Now look up how many college educated Minnesotans attended Wisconsin schools for that bachelor’s degree and then check the reverse. I won’t post the link, but I’ve already reviewed. You look it up and post it. You should have the honors.
    Try factoring in tax rate, especially corporate tax rate into the earnings you posted and you will figure out very quickly why Sioux Falls, Fargo and St. Croix County of Wisconsin are growing at the rates that they are.
    But let’s get down to brass tax. With all of this wealth and knowledge, why can’t you support a football team?

    @Bob -
    Why is the gov’t involved?
    Geez, how did Lamblow get again?
    In 1955, the other NFL owners had threatened to force the franchise to move to Milwaukee if the stadium conditions in Green Bay were not improved. In 1956, Green Bay voters responded by approving a bond issue to finance the new stadium.
    What an f-tard!

    Was this commen knowledge of yours Vike fan? If it was, sounds like you a closet Pack fan. If it was not, did you really take time out of your day just to look that up??

    Yes — I took approximately 120 seconds out of my day to look this up. But to repute Little Booby Nelson, it’s time well spent…
    And its about 1/10 the time it probably took you to cobble those sentences together…

    Good point. But don’t pay any attention to the Viking fans that try to fight their battles here. They all suffer mercilously from an overblown superiority complex that stems from and in direct proportion to their never ending frustrations, both as fans and as residents of the state that brought them Jesse Ventura and Stuart Smalley. That kind of tells you that their superior culture and education is not being used very wisely. If this was Texas, we’d describe them as “all hat…no cattle.”
